About Erik

Hello,

My name is Erik, and I am a 27 year old that recently moved from Brooklyn, NY, to Portland. After earning my teaching degree from the University of Connecticut, I began working as a middle school language arts teacher at Bay Ridge Prep School in Brooklyn, NY. It was an amazing experience, and I learned so much. I was able to craft my technique and grow a lot as a teacher. However, I found myself with an itch to move west while I was still young and focus on some creative endeavors before going back to teaching, so here I am. I am a writer and a musician, but feel it is important to me to stay involved in the education world as well.

I have a variety of teaching and tutoring experience, working with students from sixth to twelfth grade as well as students from all around the world. In my time at Bay Ridge Prep, I was also given the opportunity to work with a variety of learning styles and difficulties, including ADD and ADHD.

I believe in the constructivist model of eduction, in which students make their own meaning from the material that they encounter as opposed to being inundated with information that they are told is the only right answer. I believe in engaging students in meaningful learning and finding ways in which a subject matter is relevant to them. I think that my previous students would attest to the fact that I am good at connecting with students and treat them in a way that highlights their strengths instead of their struggles.

I am qualified to teaching the following:
- Vocabulary
- SAT prep (Language arts/writing)
- Essay drafting/revision
- Literature
- Reading comprehension (active reading skills)
- Grammar
- Essay structure/outlining
- Creative writing

Thank you so much, and I can't wait to work with you!
Regards,
Erik
