About Erik

My name is Erik C. and I currently am a teacher in the city of Buffalo, in the areas of high school Social Studies and Special Education. I have 15 years teaching and administrative experience under my belt. Over my 15 years of working in the educational experience, I have worked as an elementary teacher, middle school teacher, high school special education teacher, high school social studies teacher, full time tutor and high school administrator.

I am currently looking to tutor students both in person and and on line. I hope to be able to leave my current position and tutor full time. Throughout all of my years in working with kids, I find it very rewarding to be able to assist students to achieve whatever goals it is they have and feel that sense of accomplishment. Whether it is through being able to learn new content, coming to better understand difficult content. Or maybe it is your goal to pass a major assessment or standardized test, I look forward to being the one who helps you obtain all of your educational goals.

I have experience in preparing students to take the SAT or ACT. I also have had experience in teaching english classes to general education students at both the middle school & high school levels. I have even worked with ELL, ESL and special education students teaching them English at various levels.

I have experience in teaching all social studies content classes required by NYS to general education , special education and ELL/ESL students at the middle school and high school levels. These classes include: Global Studies, U.S. History, Participation in Government, Economics among others.

I look forward to the opportunity to work your children, to help them gain the knowledge and skills to get through what educational hurdles they have and achieve what it is they need.
