About Eric


Bio

Here's some quick background info: I'm a theoretical physicist that works in string theory and black holes. I am currently on break from a visiting fellowship at Peking University (in Beijing, China). Currently, I spend my time wandering Harvard's Jefferson Lab and MIT's CTP talking physics with past colleagues/professors until it's time for me to fly back to China. I also tutor on the side and have done so for over 8 years.

I love physics and math, and teaching students to understand...

Here's some quick background info: I'm a theoretical physicist that works in string theory and black holes. I am currently on break from a visiting fellowship at Peking University (in Beijing, China). Currently, I spend my time wandering Harvard's Jefferson Lab and MIT's CTP talking physics with past colleagues/professors until it's time for me to fly back to China. I also tutor on the side and have done so for over 8 years.

I love physics and math, and teaching students to understand and appreciate the esoteric complexity and elegant simplicity behind both subjects gives me great satisfaction. In addition to these subjects, I can also tutor a variety of other courses, especially those involving philosophy or linguistics, where my love for argument and language manifests itself quite clearly. I also love billiards/pool, but I doubt too many people are looking for tutoring in that.

I have literally been doing math my whole life (and have tutored it for much of that life). I received my B.S. in math (and another in physics) at MIT (where it is called course 18). I currently work in theoretical physics (a field which demands a high competency in math). Granted, being good at something doesn't mean one is good at teaching it, but it certainly helps. My focus is always on understanding as opposed to just rote memorization of techniques and problem-solving methods. Although this can sometimes frustrate a student just wanting an answer, it always pays off in the end.

I have based my life and career in physics. If there is one thing in life I am good at, it is physics (and math). I can't imagine anything cooler than trying to understand reality, and that's exactly what physics is: rigorous exploration and analysis of one's reality. If that doesn't get the hair on the back of your neck to stand up, I don't know what will. Many students think physics is too difficult for them and just not their subject, but I refuse to accept that. Underlying physics and all its apparent complications is a beautiful sim

Great Math Tutor

My daughter has had a lot of tutors. Eric is one a few she connected with quickly. Nice balance of patience but also challenging her to learn

Sean, 7 lessons with Eric

Excellent Tutor

My son loves the way Eric teaches him and he is finding it very interesting and very useful which will help him is his next year in College and asks me to schedule more classes with Eric !

Knowing your worth

Eric was absolutely exceptional in 1 hour he was able to help me solve and understand problems related to power, energy, work, and gravitational potential. You get what you pay for I look forward to the continuation of retaining him as my tutor for the duration of my summer Physics college course. Thanks Eric!

Precise and Passionate

Eric is very passionate, he taught me with a lot of effort, even going to explain concepts in a simpler way and allowing me to process information and test my knowledge.

So Helpful

Eric's calm and personable style put my daughter at ease and his knowledge was stellar. Great explanations of complex concepts and very clear. I highly recommend.

Robyn, 2 lessons with Eric

Great Physics Tutor

We only had one session so far. My son finally understands the physics topic that he never quite understood in his class after Eric explained to him. It was very helpful.

Carol, 1 lesson with Eric

Very helpful

Eric reviewed AP Physics 1 homework with my daughter and helped her think in the right direction to solve problems. The review was very helpful overall!

Swetha, 2 lessons with Eric

Excellent and friendly tutor

Very helpful physics tutor. Patient and accommodating. Has really helped my son with his college physics courses. My son is taking Physics 2 and has learned a lot from Eric.
