About Erik

I believe strongly in the emphasis of problem solving skills. I have become heavily involved with problem-based learning and continue to attend conferences that foster the enrichment of such skills. I teach at a private institution that has allowed me freedom of my style of student centered instruction. The importance of understanding mathematics is to allow yourself to make mistakes and make discussion and collaboration a priority. I feel that students learn best when they are given the least information and benefit tremendously when they are exposed to applied problems.

I have been teaching for 10 years and tutoring from the middle school to the collegiate level. I have written my own curriculum for all subjects trait at the high school level and still use it to this day in my classroom. Applications build connections, so most of my curriculum has an emphasis on applied problems with plenty of room for skill improvement.

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.

Geometry

Problem based experience.
Written my own curriculum which my own student use.
Taught Geometry for 9 years and have been teaching honors here at Perkiomen School since I came here.
I use Desmos and GeoGebra, which are free mathematical software for an iPhone, iPad or laptop computer.

Precalculus

I Currently teach Honors Precalculus. I teach a problem based class designed by myself. I have also instructed accelerated and modified for AP Calculus prep.

Trigonometry

I teach trigonometry both in my honors geometry and honors Precalculus classes, both of which have different exposures to the topic.
I have written problem based trigonometry courses ready for publication.
I like to analyze the relationship between degrees and radians as well as look at functions and how they relate to other mathematical functions in terms of graphical behavior.
To prepare student for calculus, I work exclusively with radians, unless the student is in a geometry course then I work with degrees.
