About Eric

Hello Everyone,

My name is Eric. I recently graduated from the University of California Merced with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Writing. I recently moved to Michigan because I was fortunate enough to be offered an entry level position in the Lansing area. Although I am employed, I continue to tutor because I love helping students succeed; tutoring to me is both a intrinsic and extrinsic experience and it reflects one of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein "Only a life lived for others is worth living".

As a student at a UC I know what it takes to succeed and what is expected of every student, so for any high school student wishing to pursue a higher education in college I can provide some great tips and study skills that can provide useful as you move further into your academics. As a Mechanical engineer I have taken many courses that deal directly with Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Writing. I have taken courses in Calculus (I & II), Probability and Statistics, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra, Vector Calculus (Calc. III), Statics and Dynamics, Numerical Analysis and I know how to use/code in various programs like MATLAB, C++, C sharp and java.

It is not often that an engineering student pursues a minor in writing, but I did so simply because I have a passion for writing and believe that each and every individual has a story to tell. It is important to tell your story and embrace it, because it is that story that makes us who we are. In regards to tutoring, I believe my minor in Writing can help me be an extensive help to students who are writing essays, students who want to know how to break down writing prompts and provide tips on what exactly some professors are looking for. I can also be helpful in terms of grammar, vocabulary and the mechanics of writing (i.e., sentence structure, punctuation, etc.). Lastly, I can also be of some help in Spanish, as I speak Spanish fluently.

Best Regards,

Eric

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 1

I've tutored many students in Algebra I & II and each student has been pleased with their results! This is one of the subjects that I love tutoring and I really invest myself in helping the student find the best way to learn.

Algebra 2

I've tutored many students in Algebra I & II and each student has been pleased with their results! This is one of the subjects that I love tutoring and I really invest myself in helping the student find the best way to learn.

Calculus

I took Calculus I and and Calculus II for engineering at the University of California Merced, and passed both courses with an A. I have also taken Vector Calculus, which is the equivalent to Calculus III, and passed that with an A also. Most upper division engineering courses require a solid background in Calculus, thus I am always constantly reviewing the material.

Geometry

I am currently a 3rd year college student at UC Merced majoring in mechanical engineering. As an engineer I have taken advanced courses in Mathematics, which really build upon ideas that stem from geometry and trigonometry.

Spanish

I come from a Spanish speaking family; Spanish was actually my first language up until elementary school. At home Spanish was always the primary language and as a result I am able to speak Spanish fluently.

Dedicated — Eric was asked to work with my daughter for a longer period time to get an assignment completed within a certain time period. He met with my daughter, assisted her with completing all assignments to prepare her for an exam she needed to take. Eric will never know how much stress he elevated; therefore I plan to use him for all future tutoring sessions. ...
