About Erica


Bio

I’ve loved economics since my very first microeconomics course but I realize not everyone feels the same. Since that first course, I’ve gone on to get a Master’s degree in economics and both my understanding and appreciation of economics has grown. Today I teach to share that love and to help others understand and appreciate economics.

I hold a Master's of Economics from Portland State University and a Master's of Petroleum Engineering from Stanford University. I also completed my PhD...

I’ve loved economics since my very first microeconomics course but I realize not everyone feels the same. Since that first course, I’ve gone on to get a Master’s degree in economics and both my understanding and appreciation of economics has grown. Today I teach to share that love and to help others understand and appreciate economics.

I hold a Master's of Economics from Portland State University and a Master's of Petroleum Engineering from Stanford University. I also completed my PhD coursework in Economics and passed my general exams at the University of Washington.

My professional background includes over 15 years of classroom and online university-level teaching experience. This is combined with 8 years of industry experience. This unique background means I understand both how economics works in the real world and how to teach that to others.

There are three main components to economics -- the mathematics, the graphs, and the intuition. While the mathematics and the graphs are interesting, I believe the intuition is the most important. Grasping the intuition of economics will help build a solid foundation for understanding the other components.

Whether it is macroeconomics, microeconomics or econometrics you don’t have to struggle alone! Economics can be straight forward, once you learn the language and the intuition. I don’t promise to turn you into an economist but I do promise to help you understand economics better. I am here to help and look forward to hearing from you.

Microeconomics

I have over 12 years experience teaching college level introductory and intermediate microeconomics. This experience spans online and onsite classrooms across a variety of institutions. Microeconomics is about how we all make the decisions we make everyday. This means we see microeconomics at work all around us all the time. This is my favorite aspect of microeconomics and what I think is crucial to understanding. Something is much easier to understand when a student can relate to it through real-world experiences and observations.

Best Tutor on Wyzant

Erica is extremely knowledgeable with college level intermediate macroeconomics from my experience! Even faced with harder concepts that are outlined very basically on a lecture slide, she simply needs a few seconds to come up with a logical and extremely helpful explanation! She is a big reason I aced two of my exams in the hardest Econ course I've taken to date. She is by far the best tutor I've had on Wyzant, not to mention, she is incredibly patient and kind to her students!
