About Eric

I was always a great student, and I now enjoy helping others to their own academic success. I have a gift for being able to explain things in a way that people can understand, and I find it especially fulfilling to make sure every bit of a student's hard work and knowledge shows up in a test score.

I have always been an excellent test taker, and my skills at standardized tests were my claim to fame in high school. I received a 36 on the ACT and a 2370 on the SAT. Because of this, I was later hired to tutor for the ACT and SAT at a local tutoring center. I have since moved, and I am looking to put these skills into practice in a new area.

I have always had a particular talent for math. During my time at Belmont University, I took math classes up to Calculus 3. I excelled in all of them. I understand that math does not come easy for many people. I can be patient and work with students who have difficulty.

After college, I went to Duke University for a Master of Divinity degree. In any type of religious study, students are required to do an enormous amount of reading and writing. My reading and writing skills were honed there. I am prepared to teach various strategies that make reading and writing for a test much easier.

I have recently taken the GRE. While the material covered is very similar to the SAT and ACT, I want to be able to provide tutoring targeted to the GRE specifically. My scores were a 163 in Math, a 170 in Verbal, and a 5 on the essay.

I am generally available every day except for Sunday and Wednesday evening. My rate is $25/hr, and I am willing to travel to nearby cities for in person tutoring. I look forward to helping you conquer the test!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

When I was in high school, I received a perfect score on the ACT. Since that time, I have been to Belmont University and Duke University for Religious Studies. In that field, I have done a vast amount of writing, which has prepared me even further to teach ACT English.

ACT Math

When I was in high school, I received a perfect score on the ACT. Since that time, I have been to Belmont University, where I studied Math up to Calculus 3. While my Master's Degree is in a different field, I have kept my math skills fresh through tutoring.

ACT Reading

When I was in high school, I received a perfect score on the ACT. Since that time, I have been to Belmont University and Duke University for Religious Studies. In that field, I was required to do a vast amount of reading at the undergraduate and graduate level. I know strategies that helped me improve my own reading comprehension, and I can teach them.

ACT Science

When I was in high school, I received a perfect score on the ACT. While I did learn Chemistry and Physics, the ACT tests scientific reasoning instead of scientific knowledge. My undergraduate and graduate studies were not in science, but I have always been fascinated by data and experiments. I am very comfortable teaching the kinds of scientific reasoning that appear on the ACT.

GRE

I have recently taken the GRE, so the knowledge of the subjects on the test are fresh in my mind from my own studying. I am awaiting official scores, but the preliminary scores I saw after the test were a 163 in math and a 170 in verbal. I feel confident in my knowledge of both sections.

SAT Math

When I was in high school, I received a 2370 on the SAT (during the time when the SAT was on a scale of 0-2400). Since that time, I have been to Belmont University, where I studied Math up to Calculus 3. While my Master's Degree is in a different field, I have kept my math skills fresh through tutoring.
