___________________________________________________________________
I have a PhD in chemistry earned from the University of South Carolina. I have a mastery level of organic chemistry and have published multiple peer-reviewed articles. Tutoring allows me to gain experience in teaching while receiving some compensation.

I graduated with a 3.89 GPA in graduate school, I graduated with a 3.19 major GPA in undergrad and while I was in high school I got a 95 on the chemistry and earth science Regents exams. This is not due to studying all the time, but rather learning how certain facts can relate to each other directly or indirectly.

My teaching style is more acclimated toward the student, for example, I always start a session with a repeating student by giving them a quiz/test. Doing this allows me to know what the student does and does not know, and gives the student more practice of thinking under pressure.

Organic Chemistry

I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. I have proven written, oral, and conceptual knowledge in organic chemistry which has admitted me into candidacy at the University of South Carolina. I have been a teaching assistant to organic chemistry courses where I held one hour long recitation lectures for the students attending the course. Most students consider organic chemistry "boring", I attempt preemptive strikes to negate this feeling, such as comparing the material to everyday life, relating the material to jokes, as well as generally joking around with the students. When It comes down to the success rate of my students however, it was very clear. The students that were the most active in asking/answering questions had the highest grades, and because of this I always gauge my teaching toward sample questions.

Knowledgeable and very helpful

Erik was helping me in organic chemistry and made one of the hardest chapters so far seem quite simple to get through. His way of going through the problems opened up my eyes, and I learned a bunch with him.

Excellent for Organic chemistry

Erik explains things step by step and he is very patient. Also, he is very knowledgeable about organic chemistry, and his experience makes things to be very clear and easy to use. I highly recommend Erik because I have improved my organic chemistry after I studied with him. So studying with Eric is really worth time and money.

Thanks for the help

With Erik's help, I saw so much improvement over only 2.5 weeks. I wish I had started lessons with him earlier!

Hollyn, 7 lessons with Erik

Super Helpful

Erik explains things very clearly and his notes from the lesson are a great study material! He's very knowledgeable about organic chemistry but explains complicated subjects in a way thats easy to understand.

Great for OCHEM

I’ve had him for several session in organic chemistry. He is very knowledgeable, structured, and easy to learn from- all the best attributes for a tutor. Recommend!

Good Review

I was studying reaction mechanisms in organic chemistry and had trouble drawing the steps. Erik helped simplify the process by explaining the concepts of the Sn1 or Sn2 mechanism. I understand the chapter better when I had a visual of the problem from the textbook. He was a knowledgeable teacher.

Lori, 11 lessons with Erik

Very knowledgeable on the subject. Erik made the impossible very possible.

Erik taught me Statistics using Excel 2010. Very patient tutor. I will be using him again. Erik is knowledgeable on the subject. He explains Excel to where I understood it in the first 20 mins. Thanks Erik
