About Eric

Hello, I am currently a Junior High School English/Literature and History teacher. I have been teaching for a total of 5 years both at the junior high and high school levels. I am married and the proud father of a 16 month old boy who is crazy with a capital "K". (Yes, I am an English teacher you do not need to correct me on that) I have tutored students when I was in college as well as helped others when I myself was in high school.

I know what it is like to need that extra helping hand in learning, I myself had a tutor for math and it helped me exponentially. (I know math term haha) My philosophy is "Having Fun, While Learning", School, education, and yes even tutoring should be a fun experience not something you come to dread, and while I like to make jokes and have a good time, I want the learning to intermingle with the good times.

I teach U.S. History, World History, and American Government. I also teach English, Vocabulary, Writing, and Literature (Both American and British) to my students, I want them to be unafraid of grabbing a book off the shelf even if they know nothing about it. We cover books they themselves would never pick but gain the appreciation for the author's work through our learning. I want students to understand their role as a citizen and their place in history

I really hope that I can lend a helping hand to you, and together we can both learn something.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I have taught American History, Pre-America to Vietnam for the past five years at the JH and HS levels.

English

I am an English teacher for 6-8th grades. We cover a wide range of topics and my students know they will be challenged to be ready and able when leaving my room.

Social Studies

I teach 6th 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies currently. I have been declared Highly Qualified in this area by the Illinois State Board of Education. I know the field is wide-ranging but in the 5 years I have been a teacher I feel I have a solid grasp on its materials.
