What Our PDX Tutoring Clients Are Saying

"My daughter was swamped with AP and Honors classwork and started getting behind and losing confidence in math. He helped her get back on track and gain her confidence again."

- Gretchen

"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."

- Christina

Our daughter just absolutely "did not get math". After one session with Eric her confidence skyrocketed and she no longer dreads her homework!

- Joshua

"My son went from failing and hating the subject to passing and liking it in a couple of weeks."

- Jonas

"Eric helped me prepare for the Math portion of the GRE. I would definitely recommend Eric as a tutor for math students of all levels."

"Eric helped him make the shift back from being frustrated to feeling confident for algebra II."
