Math Tutoring

Eric has been tutoring my daughter for a few months now in Pre-Calc. She was swamped with AP and Honors classwork and afternoon school groups and started getting behind and losing confidence in math. He helped her get back on track and gain her confidence again. He was easy to communicate with, for me initially and with her for scheduling. Her needs are shifting due to COVID and SAT prep and Eric shifted his skills to that with her. Here is what she said when asked for input on a review: Very patient and sees every problem through. Gives great explanations and background to all problems.

Math Tutoring

With Eric's math expertise and calm and patient personality, he was able to quickly figure out how to reach our daughter, who was on the brink of giving up in algebra. Immediately, after meeting with Eric the first time, we could see a shift in our daughter's perception of her abilities. We are grateful for her growing sense of confidence and success in a subject that she needs to master. A month ago we did not think this was possible! Thank you, Eric and Emergent Education.

Math Tutoring

Eric has been a lifesaver. My son (sophomore in high school) was despairing about his ability to understand math and totally discouraged. Eric has completely turned things around for him. My son is always so relieved after a tutoring session because things suddenly make sense to him. Eric has also been extremely accommodating and flexible with complex, ever-changing schedules.

Math Tutoring

Eric did an amazing job helping my son with some of the fundamentals of pre-calculus. My son seemed very comfortable asking questions throughout the lesson, and I know that he’s off to a good start this year in math.

Test Prep Services

Eric was very helpful in helping me prepare for the Math portion of the GRE. I hadn't taken a math class in at least 10 years and Eric was very patient and helpful in refreshing my skills. He was adept at walking me through all the different types of problems required. He also provided resources and tools to help me practice on my own in between sessions. I would definitely recommend Eric as a tutor for math students of all levels.
