Eric’s passion lies in motivating students to become their best and to help guide their futures and have a positive impact on young people.
One of Eric’s greatest skills is postively encouraging students to reach their goals and aspirations with a focus on attitude, hard work, and perseverance. Before joining ESM, Eric was a middle school science teacher in East Oakland. He was beloved by his students and he challenged them with rigorous curriculum, held them accountable for their actions, and most importantly he made sure that every student knew that he cared deeply about them.
Eric knows that in order for students to learn, they need to want to learn. He works tirelessly to create the relationships and learning environment that make learning enjoyable. This allows him to push the limits of what they thought previously possible.
Eric mentors students in the Sacramento region and online from coast-to-coast. He is an ACT expert and teaches a variety of subjects including algebra, geometry, chemistry, biology, SAT, physics, English, and history. He also is a college application coach.
When Eric is not mentoring students, he is spending time with his wife, Gabi, and their two year old son, Evan. He loves sports and plays basketball, hockey, and golf. He also enjoys biking through the beautiful hills of Placer County.
