About Eric

I have been teaching 5th grade in Portland Public Schools for seven years now. This has been the most rewarding career I could have imagined. Helping kids grow and reach their potential is the greatest feeling. It is definitely what I was meant to do. A natural patience and empathy have helped me greatly. After I finished at Warner Pacific College in 2005, I substitute taught, tutored, and also taught driver’s education.
I have taught kids of all backgrounds (including ESL and Special Education) as well as adults. I have been able to make connections with all of my students and have helped them improve and learn. I particularly love Language Arts, but I teach Math, Social Studies, and Science.
With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards and the assessments that accompany them, more is being expected of elementary students than ever before. I can help your family navigate these areas with confidence.

Thank you for checking my bio, and I hope to hear from you!

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.
