About Eric


Bio

I have been a junior high and high school physical sciences teacher since 2005 at a rural school in Ohio. Being a rural school I am half of the science department teaching all of the physical sciences (the other half is co-worker who teaches all of the life sciences). Therefore I have extensive experience across many different subjects including: Physics, Chemistry, Physical Science, General Science, Earth & Space Science, Astronomy, Geology, CC+, Geology, AP Chemistry, and CC+Chemistry. ...

I have been a junior high and high school physical sciences teacher since 2005 at a rural school in Ohio. Being a rural school I am half of the science department teaching all of the physical sciences (the other half is co-worker who teaches all of the life sciences). Therefore I have extensive experience across many different subjects including: Physics, Chemistry, Physical Science, General Science, Earth & Space Science, Astronomy, Geology, CC+, Geology, AP Chemistry, and CC+Chemistry. My first love in science was stargazing and astronomy, later it was geology, physics is the topic that made me want to teach, and chemistry has become my favorite subject to teach. I have a BA degree in Physics, a MS in AYA Science Education - Physical Sciences, a MEd in Earth Science Education, and a teaching license in Physical Sciences: Physics, Chemistry, & Earth Science. I have taught dual enrollment/college credit plus through Urbana University and Edison Community College.

I tell my students that I could make more money with my physics degree, but I like working with students and so I teach. The true joy of teaching and tutoring is figuring out what they are stuck on and figuring out which teaching method, explanation, or analogy will get them over that hurdle and on towards success. Seeing students be curious and experience "ah-ha" moments really makes it all worthwhile. Teaching so many subjects did make getting started rough, but now that I have experience doing it, I cannot imagine teaching the same topic all day. Teaching and sharing my love of science is truly a passion of mine.

I am an excellent tutor because I truly love my subject and I love teaching. Teaching experience has given me the skills of not only knowing the material that I teach, but also how to communicate that material effectively so that students understand. Additionally, I am familiar with many science subjects and so I can not only teach multiple topics, but I am also able to draw on more experience and make more diverse connection

Experienced and Knowledgeable Teacher

My son had the first lesson of AP Chem today and he really liked it. He is a junior so usually he has no comments on anything but he DID speak so high of Eric's lesson. Thank you Eric!
