About Erin

I earned my B.S. in physics (with minors in math and chemistry) in 2013, then moved to Maryland to start my PhD. I am a fourth-year grad student in physics at UMD, College Park. At my undergrad institution, I spent an average of 10 hours per week tutoring other college students in math, chemistry, and physics. Most of my tutoring experience is in math: everything from algebra to business math to calculus.

I love using the expertise I've built up over the years to help other students succeed. For me, the most rewarding part of tutoring is seeing a student go from struggling in a class to eventually being able to say, "Aha, I get it!" I hope you'll pick me to help you with your tutoring need.

Math and science can be intimidating, but I'll break it down for you!

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.

Algebra 1

As a physics student, I am well-acquainted with algebra 1, and I have experience tutoring in this subject.

Calculus

Calculus is my most-tutored subject. I tutored students in calculus all four years I was in college.

Chemistry

I tutored first-year Chemistry (I and II) for three years when I was in college.

Physics

I majored in physics in college and have the equivalent of a Master's degree now. I have tutored first-year physics and am available to help with high-level classes as well.

Precalculus

I worked with a high school precalculus student for the duration of her school year.

Friendly and helpful tutor.

Erin is very quick when it comes to SAT practice exams. She has taught me many shortcuts that are beneficial in answering questions in a timely fashion. I also want to thank her for meeting with me on such a short notice on Monday (5/22/17) to go over some last minute physics material. I was having a test on Tuesday, and I was not understanding some of the topics that would be on the exam. She wi
