6 Lessons Taught

Hi, I’m Erica, a multi-subject tutor, mentor, and academic coach for the past 9 years. I was a math tutor and high school science teacher for a couple of national learning centers and charter schools several years ago, but transitioned to full-time, private tutoring several years ago. Some of my strongest points as a tutor are my patience and eagerness to reexplain formulas and equations as much as needed along with making up acrostics and mnemonics to make learning easier.

I make sure tutoring sessions are constructive, yet fun and engaging. I help students learn problem solving skills and construct processes that they can apply to various types of problems and, since making mistakes in front of people is hard to deal with, am gentle when redirecting their learning. I bring humor and empathy along in order to lighten the mood and make all of us feel more at ease. The overall result is that the student has a better understanding of the material, improvement in their self-confidence, willingness to complete the assigned work in addition to improved grades on homework, quizzes, and exams.
