About Erik

I have a wonderful rapport with people of all ages, especially children. I am a reliable and dedicated educator who does not allow circumstances to hinder my performance. I am very organized and well prepared for anything that may arise. The challenges as an educator has given me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the students that I teach and the parents that I assist.

My objective is to obtain a tutoring position as an elementary, middle, high school, special education teacher that will utilize strong teaching abilities to create a nurturing, motivational, and stimulating environment to help children achieve their potential.

I believe every child has the ability to learn if placed in a nurturing environment. I create and implement lesson plans for students with special needs; and I adapt my teaching style to accommodate different levels of learning.

I demonstrate ability to engage students in the educational process and facilitate learning and foster an encouraging educational setting to meet the objectives of each student.

I provide guided reading instruction used to assist developing readers through conferencing and journal activities. I have a hands-on teaching style; and I take an active interest in the progression of each student. I interact with parents, teachers, and administrators, establishing open oral and written communication.

I judged a sixth grade Spelling Bee at a middle school. I have a keen ability to pique students’ interest by providing a creative and supportive environment. I led successful parent workshops that focused on how to improve homework habits and nurture a love for reading. I maintain a stimulating and nurturing classroom setting and promote free thinking and expression of ideas.

I am open-minded and culturally sensitive. I served on the PTA to help bridge the gap between parents and teachers. I am undeniably powerful, compassionate, and dedicated. I view teaching as an opportunity to enrich the lives of children.

I wears many hats; one of teacher, motivator, and role model. I am extremely conscientious with developing classroom material.

Yawns are nonexistent.

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.

Discrete Math

I have been teaching and working working with discrete mathematics for five years. I can help students review probability, logic, geometry, algebra, set theories and so much more.

I can give techniques with number theory and finite numbers in Calculus.

Drawing

I have been working with students in art classes for several years. Students have painted, drawn pictures, sculpted with clay and other mediums. We have created art out of wood, metal, liquids, etc.

Art is very important to me.

Organic Chemistry

I have been teaching Regents Chemistry for the the past six years. I am we based in all terminology, test taking tips, and strategies. All of my students have successfully passed all Regents classes.

Regents

I have been tutoring and prepping students for all Regents tests for the last six years. All of my students have scored 85 and above on all regents examinations. I have helped students prepare for all tests in exciting and fun ways.

World History

As a private school teacher, I have taught multiple subjects, as well as different grade levels. I have prepped students for Global Studies exams for more than six years. I have also taught Global History the last three years. All of my students that have taken the Global Studies Regents in the last three years have passed with grades 88 and above.
