Lesson Details

Math

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
Math has always come easy to me, and I'm well aware that's not the case for everybody. I recently returned to school for Applied Math, and have graduate credits in Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Probability theory. More importantly for most, I know how to explain concepts to students in a way they can understand, and also how to expose an often rote and dull subject for many as the endlessly fascinating subject it is.

Erik E. delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.
Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:
September 2004

Basically, I'm very good at what I do. If you want someone who's a fountain of information, who can give you hours of background and detail on a Chopin piece or the like, and knows what it takes to get to the point where you can pretty much play anything, I'm your guy. If you want someone to teach your daughter Mary Had A Little Lamb, I can do that too, and that's often where it all starts!

I've been teaching for 12 years and have had well over 150 different students in that time: Kids, retirees, beginner to advanced.

One word awful ! Playing nice and robbing your money as well as wasting your time and your kid( s) time. He did it to my family and the family that referred him to us . He is fired by all of us.
However , we found a teacher on take a lesson . She is amazing . I am telling you . It is a life changing experience. I cannot tell you her name but keep reading reviews and you will see. My kids are in love with their piano cause of her.

Stay away! This guy was referred to us by 5 friends in Merci Medical Center. We hired him for piano, guitar and math. The entire experience was miserable and unsuccessful. He questions the kids about none related subjects. We fired him . I called my friends they also get similar experiences and got rid of him. He blame some for not practicing which is not true. My kids , he goes to page 15 for example on piano and guitar and then come back to page 5. He gets to page 10 and returned to page 7. When I hired an other teacher to verify the kids progress, the kids know nothing to the 3 years that they were with him. I took them to school of rock in a month they re done what have taken him years to do .

This dude is not good for business. He is going to waste your kid (s) time and money. He is a greedy person with no code of ethics.

Erik varies the subject matter of each lesson which makes it very interesting and informative. He makes sure I am 'stretched' each time but his patience with a complete beginner makes his lessons very enjoyable

Erik has been my piano/guitar teacher for about 6 years now and the experience has been amazing. His knowledge and skill in piano, guitar and music in general has helped learning a lot more simple and entertaining. He's always been patient with my brother and I and we both enjoy the lessons. I highly recommend having Erik as a teacher!
