I'm Eric, and I graduated the University at Buffalo with a bachelor's and master's degree in biomedical engineering. During my time there, I spent time tutoring athletes in algebra and biology. During my graduate work I was a TA for a basic engineering class. I've had many opportunities to use the subjects I've learned in real-world applications, and as such I like to take a hands-on approach to learning.
When it comes to mathematics, I try to introduce the material in a way that lets the student learn to break the problem down into simpler problems. Since much of math is just moving numbers around and recognizing patterns, I try to get my students to master those skills first. I try to get my students to work through problems on their own, while trying to steer them toward good problem solving habits.
Biology was my favorite subject in school. I try to get my students to look at the human body as a machine, with each part playing a specific role. Understanding these roles can sometimes help to remember the structure of the body. I try to make sure each of my students have this understanding.
Please feel free to provide any suggestions you have, or any materials you have worked with already, and I will incorporate them into the lessons. I am very flexible with scheduling, and I hope I can meet your needs. Be sure to contact me with and questions you may have, or to schedule a lesson.
