About Erick

Hi! I am a fun loving, comic book reading, beach and outdoors enjoying, science minded teacher who loves to teach! I have been a certified teacher for almost 5 years now but have been teaching for much longer than that. I have worked with students as a mentor and tutor for at least 10 years now and don't plan on ever leaving this career. There is something about teaching and helping students that really makes me feel good as a person. I love to incorporate real world situations into my classroom as well as my tutoring. I have been recognized as a leader on my own school campus and as a teacher that many of the students can look up to and confide in.
Aside from teaching I am also a father of two myself. I have taught and helped my own children with subjects they may struggle in to a point were they both excel at school. I love teaching so much that whether my daughters and I are hiking or at the beach I always, for some reason or another, end up teaching others about our finds or introducing them to some sort of organism that they may have never known about. I have been know to have crowds gather around as I am teaching about the environment or a type of animal I found, even adults like to listen in. I am a huge believer in the sharing of knowledge and it for that reason that I became a teacher and decide to tutor, to make the world a better place through knowing more.

I am familiar with many different methods for understanding , planning, working out math problems. Have been teaching as a certified teacher for 4 years now. I am a believer in repeated practice making for a stronger mathematical mind, hence math games that will build on math operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Since I am a certified teacher part of what we have to do in the classroom is ensure that our students can read or provide them with the skills needed to advance in their reading and reading levels. I believe that reading to improve fluency and reading rate will improve how a person reads by exposing them to more words and becoming used to more frequency of using and seeing those words in a written form.

Since I am a certified teacher working in a classroom I have to teach according to the common core. I am also a self contained teacher, meaning I teach every subject in my classroom without assistance from other teachers coming into or my students leaving my classroom to another class.

I am a certified EC- 6th Grade Bilingual Teacher. I can teach in both English and Spanish in all subjects. I have been teaching for 4 years now.

I love to teach. I am down to earth and like including my students interests into my lessons. I've gone as far as to create word problems about Mario, Luigi and Bowser as well as Pokemon, whatever I can do to try to capture my students interests and make learning fun! Because otherwise I'm just a plain old boring teacher that no one likes, but if all the gifts, letters, cards, and hugs I get from my current and past students mean anything then I am sure I am doing something right.

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.

Common Core

I am a certified elementary teacher and have been teaching professionally for almost 5 years now. I teach Common Core in my own classroom, 3rd grade, as well as when I was a second grade teacher or working with other grade levels as a student teacher, intern, or substitute and tutor.
I teach the Texas Standards (TEKS) as well as National Standards on a daily basis.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher. I have been teaching professionally for almost 5 years now. I am a self contained teacher, meaning that I teach all subjects in my classroom with no outside teacher supports. I have also been tutoring and mentoring for 10+ years. I have worked with all grades from Pre-Kinder to 5th through student teaching, substituting, interning, or teaching.
