About Eric


Bio

I have been a secondary physical sciences teacher since '05 at a rural school. At the small school I am 1/2 the science dept teaching all of the physical sciences. So I have experience across many subjects: Gen and AP Physics; General, AP, and CC+ Chemistry; Physical Sci; Gen Sci; Earth and Space Sci; Astronomy, and CC+Geology. My first love in science was astronomy, then it was geology, physics made me want to teach, and chemistry has become my favorite subject to teach. I have a BA in...

I have been a secondary physical sciences teacher since '05 at a rural school. At the small school I am 1/2 the science dept teaching all of the physical sciences. So I have experience across many subjects: Gen and AP Physics; General, AP, and CC+ Chemistry; Physical Sci; Gen Sci; Earth and Space Sci; Astronomy, and CC+Geology. My first love in science was astronomy, then it was geology, physics made me want to teach, and chemistry has become my favorite subject to teach. I have a BA in Physics, a MS in AYA Sci Ed, a MEd in Earth Sci Ed, and a teaching license in all the Physical Sciences. I have taught dual enrollment/college credit plus through Urbana U. and Edison CC. Using my physics degree would pay more, but I like working with students- so I teach. The true joy of teaching is seeing students be curious and experience "ah-ha" moments. Teaching to my love of science is my passion.

I honestly started tutoring because I needed the money. I didn't think I would like it- I was wrong, and I often look forward to my evenings tutoring more than I do my school day. Some of this is because I like the personal interaction, but the bigger reason is that I get to work with students who are highly motivated. My 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, being familiar with so many subjects, I am also able to draw on more experience. One of the greatest skills any teacher can have is to not only know their topic and how to communicate it, but also to identify where students are and how to move them forward. Teaching is not a one size fits all situation and individual tutoring allows for so personalization.

I would love to help you - whether you share my passion for science and want to dive deeper, are frustrated at a teacher who can't individualize your education, simply want to pass a test, or you don't know what you are stuck on and just need guidance please contact me.

Great Explanations

He explains things in away that makes it easy to understand and is very knowledgeable even when we jump to completely different chemistry topics each lesson.

Amiri, 13 lessons with Eric

Knowledgeable and passionate science guide

Eric has been a fantastic science (chemistry and physics) tutor for my entering middle school child. He is very knowledgeable on the subjects, and explains it well. He also encourages discussions about other semi-related topics like astronomy and ornithology, which help shape the minds of youngsters around a deep rooted interest in general science. We have had several lessons with him, and plan to have many more in the coming years.

Best science tutor

Eric S. helped my son a lot with earth science. He was patient and explained the material well. He is very knowledgeable teacher not only in subject area, but also in assessing student’s needs. I will reach out to him again if my son needs it.

Izabela, 6 lessons with Eric

Awesome High School Physics Tutor

My 9th grade son has had ten lessons with Eric this school year for Physics. He has been terrific and is helping my son get through what is a very difficult course. He is easy to work with. He knows everything about the topics covered in my son's class. He is accessible, and his lessons are organized and structured. My son actually days he wishes Eric was his teacher and not the one he has now!

Elizabeth, 26 lessons with Eric

Knowledgeable and accommodating

My daughter only had one session with Eric but is already feeling more confident and prepared for her quiz next day. He was patient, knowledgeable and attentive. Will be using his services again.
