Many students have told me that I was able to explain a concept to their understanding much easier and quicker than their current teachers. I also try to make learning fun and exciting whenever possible. In addition, it may direct them towards a career in science, filling the growing future...

I have a PhD in Chemistry and an Associate's degree in General Studies. I have tutored high school and college level students in chemistry, physics and math for the past 13 years with proven results. Many students have told me that I was able to explain a concept to their understanding much easier and quicker than their current teachers. I also try to make learning fun and exciting whenever possible. In addition, it may direct them towards a career in science, filling the growing future need in the United States for scientists and engineers.

My teaching philosophy focuses on a very hands on approach. I like to capture the student's interest by focusing on real world applications, prior to lecturing and explaining chemical theories or principles. I find that this approach enables students to retain the learned information long after they have left the classroom. I have experience in a multitude of settings, including academic teaching/research, industrial research and consulting. I believe my diverse background enables me to connect with students having various interests and experience levels.

Fabulous Chem Tutor

Eric tutored my daughter in Chem Honors for the last month. He has been a fabulous tutor...patient and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him for high school chem tutoring. My daughter's grades improved tremendously...only wish that we hired him earlier in the year!

Dana, 6 lessons with Eric

Great Tutor

My daughter had a C+ in Chemistry when she started working with Eric and with his help brought her grade up to an A and performed extremely well on the Chemistry SOL.

Tracey, 16 lessons with Eric

Great teacher

Another great Lesson with Eric! Provided great understanding on Chemistry concepts to prepare for upcoming test. Very pleased with sessions.

Latonya, 8 lessons with Eric

Thanks!

Quick reply to a new student! Thanks squeezing in and helping my AP Chemistry kiddo! I will have him contact you for future lessons. Very helpful and easy to understand

Becky, 1 lesson with Eric

Helped her finish the year with a Bang!

My student was able to raise her grade a whole grade point working with you this year. The full year review (2 sessions) in preparation for the final were really critical. Thanks so much for the great tutoring and FLEXIBILITY in scheduling!

Lenora, 48 lessons with Eric

Very knowledgeable about the subject matter.

Knows the subject matter out right and need not take time to figure things out on the spot. Wish I have engaged him earlier. Takes some time to book especially when the AP exam is right around the corner.

Michael , 10 lessons with Eric

Knowledgeable tutor

My son has been working with Eric for the past month for his IB Chemistry class. Eric is very effective in explaining concepts to Andrew for upcoming tests. As the result, my son seems more engaged and confident in this subject.

Eric is a great tutor. He explains material s with real world examples, knows his material, and tutors in a patient and kind manner. He helped my daughter understand the difficult material. I highly recommend Eric!

Just two lessons, but so far Eric has established a nice rapport with our Sophomore son tutoring in AP Chem. Eric is punctual, friendly and very focused. Excellent tutor.
