About Eric

My name is Eric.

I specialize in Math, Finance, and Economics tutoring. I am currently working on a degree in Actuarial Science in Las Vegas, and already have degrees in Finance and Economics from Montana State University.

In high school, I struggled immensely with classes, especially math. I could not understand what it would be used for, or why it was important. I was not able to get myself to memorize formulas or factoids just long enough for the next test, as is often the case in public schools today.

I attended DeVry University as an 18 year old, but realized I was hopelessly behind in my basic skills, and soon dropped out. I joined the army for several years as a recon scout.

I started to feel the urge to do something "smarter" with my life, and decided to give college another try. I was accepted at Montana State University. I changed my major several times during my 4 1/2 years, as I realized that I liked everything, but couldn't major in everything! I had a difficult time in the beginning, but within a semester or two, I had regained everything I would have attained in 4 years of high school, and then some. I ended up majoring in Finance and minoring in Economics from MSU.

More recently, I have realized that what I really like is teaching others, especially those who have a tough time learning certain subjects. I feel that I have a knack for connecting with people in a unique way, and can often determine what the problem is and an effective solution for it.

I have helped dozens of men attain their GEDs who are in prison. Some had some school, others barely knew how to read. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing someone who was going to give up decide to take another crack at it. I have also taught higher level adult continuing education classes, one on Complex Systems and one in Calculus Applications. Some have told me that I have a gift for allowing anyone in my class, regardless of aptitude or background, to understand the topics and their applications.

I have a wide range of tutoring experience, from adults to younger children, and many different ways to connect with whomever I'm working with.

Nothing I have ever done yet has been as satisfying as tutoring, and I hope I can help you!

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.

Very patient and very easy to reach — First of all, at 57 years of age, I am by far Eric's oldest student. I'm an adult learner who at 50 1/2 years of age and with only a handful of classes under my belt, decided it was time to complete my degree. I moved through my AA, then BA and most of the way through my MBA in Public Administration fairly easily when I started Public Finance and ran into Excel and graphing and other things I had ...
