About Erik


Bio

I'm Erik. In the 7th grade, I found my passion: helping other people learn and understand math! I loved being the person that everyone else went to when they had a math question or math problem. I knew that it what I wanted to do with my life. I went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and majored in mathematics and received my teaching certificate. I started teaching right after I graduated and have been teaching and tutoring for more than 10 years! I have taught pretty much...

I'm Erik. In the 7th grade, I found my passion: helping other people learn and understand math! I loved being the person that everyone else went to when they had a math question or math problem. I knew that it what I wanted to do with my life. I went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and majored in mathematics and received my teaching certificate. I started teaching right after I graduated and have been teaching and tutoring for more than 10 years! I have taught pretty much every mathematics course that High Schools offer, from Pre-Algebra all the way to AP Calculus AB.

I have heard countless times throughout my many years of teaching and tutoring when I get students for the first time, "I am just not good at math." How untrue! They simply do not understand math, YET. This is where I come in :) Math is amazing in that it is always rational and sensible (if you have enough background information). There is a reason for everything we do in mathematics. I show students the reasons behind what is happening, not just a bunch of formulas and rules to memorize, so that students then can understand math. I relate mathematical concepts to things students already know and have real-world experience with to make better connections. These connections and understandings allow students to be successful when they previously may not have been.

I first started officially tutoring mathematics when I was in High School. I continued tutoring mathematics in college and have not stopped. Most of the students I tutor are looking to do better in their current math classes and I have mostly provided help in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and IB Mathematics as that is what I have been teaching lately. I have also tutored students in the summer to keep their math skills sharp for the upcoming school year, as well as students preparing for the SAT (I consistently score a perfect 800 on the SAT math section and know a lot about how the test works). I love helping people achieve success on whatever

Great teacher

He is a great teacher, excellent at explaining difficult topics as well as picking up on students weaknesses in the subject and addressing them in the according manner in the simplest of forms

Knowledgeable and Great Tutor!

He helped me with my geometry assignment. He was patient and helped clarify the concept for what I was doing. He made me feel better about doing math as a whole. Hands down one of the best tutors I've had in a long time.
