I am a strength-based tutor who creates personalized programs to help students overcome learning challenges. For the past five years, I have helped elementary through high school students improve memory strategies, reading decoding and comprehension, writing, mathematics, organization, and motivation. I have specialized training in the F.A.S.T. Learning program as a reading practitioner.

Additionally, I teach Reading to students with learning challenges at the Ann Arbor Academy. My prior experience as a public and private junior high English and Social Studies teacher contributes to my approach as a tutor, as do my experiences as a professional storyteller and journalist. Students consider me “creative," “real-world” and “fun." I also act as a liaison between parents and schools to make sure that student needs are being met and all parties are communicating effectively.

I help students strengthen pre-algrebra foundation concepts as needed, such as converting from fractions to decimals to percents. Algebra 1 challenges I commonly work on include the following: understanding the distributive property, solving for single variable and multi-variable equations, and understanding and graphing slopes. I also focus on helping students understand key direction language in word problems.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

I have tutored students with ADD in Ann Arbor since 2008. Currently, I teach at an academy, a private school that specializes in working with students with learning challenges, especially ADD. My training includes tutoring under master tutor, Cindy Annchild. In my private practice I focus on using student strengths and personal interests to develop unique projects which help improve concentration, motivation, organization and memory. I also believe strongly in recognizing multiple learning styles. For this reason my motto is "think outside the box".
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I have worked with students with Dyslexia as a tutor for five years and as a reading specialist at an academy for two years. I was trained in the F.A.S.T. Learning Reading program by creator Steve Tattum. Steve was a Master in both the Orton Gillingham and Lindamood Bell approaches to teaching reading prior to creating the F.A.S.T. program. It is a fantastic, phonics-based approach that uses multiple learning styles. I also received specialized training with master tutor Cindy Annchild.

Great progress in a short time

Eric is very positive, well prepared, and encouraging. My daughter has improved much more in 10 lessons with Eric than all last year with her teacher. Great progress, really getting it this time. He's able to relate to her learning style and needs and set the lessons accordingly.
