Columbia University (Psych, Phil, Premed)
My name is Erik, a recent Columbia University graduate who is passionate about teaching and learning. I'm currently living in San Francisco, though I work at Stanford University where I manage a neuroscience lab that does research on interpersonal emotion processes like empathy and prosocial decision making. I'm interested in getting a PhD in Clinical Psychology in two years' time, so this is a great place for me to be.
I graduated from Columbia with a BA in Psychology and a GPA of 4.05 (A+ grades earn you above a 4.0). Following this phenomenal educational experience, I am excited about the opportunity to help others to learn and succeed in their own lives. I am a patient, dedicated and thorough tutor, making sure that students understand the material and are on their way to reaching their fullest potentials.
I have proficiency in a number of areas including language arts (spelling, grammar, proofreading, literature, reading, writing and philosophy), sciences (psychology, anatomy, chemistry, physics and biology) and general test prep (SAT, ACT, GRE Psychology). I also have experience teaching ballroom dance, salsa and tango, as I was a competitive ballroom dancer for 6 years.
If you have any further questions about my experiences, credentials, methods or philosophy, please just let me know!
All the best,

LOVE working with Erik. He is patient, pleasant to work with and smart. The sessions are enjoyable and there is a nice mix of working at your pace while gently pushing you forward. Highly recommend!
Erik is a great Matlab tutor. I gained a lot of self-confidence and learned the basics of approaching Matlab problems.
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.
As the manager of a neuroscience lab and an honors student in Psychology, I have used MATLAB on an almost daily basis for the last 2.5 years. I have programmed scripts that involve data manipulation, data analysis, screen presentation using Psychtoolbox, audiofile collection, response pattern collection and other MATLAB functions.
