About Eric

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.
