About Erik

I've never had any tutoring experience or teaching, but I always wanted to. I think that by teaching others, we reinforce those concepts in ourselves. I'm also interested in helping people and trying to make them the best they can be for that is what I strive to do for myself.

I come from a family who values education and did their best to push me academically. Junior and Senior year of high school, I attended and graduated from Arkansas' School for Math, Science, and the Arts. I also received a scholarship in recognition of my math skills. Throughout high school, I also spent my time focusing on other subjects and competed in academic competitions known as Quiz Bowl.

In Fall of 2013, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an undergraduate enrolled in the General Engineering program where I continued to hone my skills in math and physics.

I would be happy to pass the knowledge I attained through the years to my students.

Although academics is my main priority, I am also a well-rounded individual who is part athlete with experience in basketball, soccer, tennis, and ultimate frisbee. Other hobbies of mine include acting/voice-acting, film-making, stand-up comedy, computer programming, and creative writing.

In terms of tutoring, I try to set my rates as low as possible due to my lack of experience and can negotiate for lower deals if needed. I have ready transportation to be at your place and tutor you as needed and can work nights as well.

Completed Calculus and Differential Equations senior year of high school, received a scholarship for recognition in math, and graduated from the best math high school in the state of Arkansas.

I look forward to becoming a better tutor and coaching you to be a better student!

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.

Algebra 2

I completed Algebra 2 in sophomore year of high school and reinforced the knowledge through online material; I completed an algebra 2 class through an online high school in addition to completing it at my high school whose course level was sub-par.
