"I can help demystify physics and math!"

Dr. Erik B. has devoted his life to learning and teaching physics, astronomy and mathematics. He has decades of experience teaching and tutoring thousands of students from diverse backgrounds and with diverse abilities, at the high school, college and post-graduate level. And he gets results! His tutoring students routinely say they wish Erik had been their classroom instructor. After working with Erik, his students have: turned "F"s into "A"s, improved standardized test scores by over 65 percentile points, tested out of degree requirements, been accepted to elite colleges, been accepted to medical school, advanced to PhD candidacy, become medical doctors, and -- most rewardingly -- become lifelong lovers of physics and math.

Erik fell in love with the stars as a child, and astrophysics has been his life's passion ever since. He found his way from the dark skies of South Dakota to The University of Texas at Austin, where he double-majored in Physics (B.S.) and Astronomy (B.A., with a minor in German). He completed a quarter of his undergraduate studies at the Technical University of Berlin, where he took courses in quantum mechanics, astrophysics, and German. Erik then took a detour into the business world -- he received a graduate degree in accounting and took a job in Chicago, IL with one of the largest international public accounting firms in the world. This experience provided him with some very valuable life lessons. The most important one was deciding he knew exactly what he wished to do with his life moving forward: teach!

After leaving his business career behind, Erik returned to Austin, TX, where he began teaching and tutoring physics more or less full-time. To further his goal of a career in education, Erik matriculated into the Astronomy Ph.D. program at UT - Austin, and completed the degree in 2014. Along the way, he was also awarded an M.A. degree, bringing the total number of degrees to five -- all from The University of Texas at Austin (H

Knowledgeable and efficient!

Erik helped me on my physics homework, for which I had a bizarre due date of within 24 hours. I was short on time but Erik was excellent in solving the problems and helping me out with it! Highly recommend Erik for physics - he is very knowledgeable and helpful!
