From R.M., York University, Introduction to Statistics:
“Eric, not only did I pass stats, but I received a mark that was inconceivable to me at the beginning of the semester. Thank you for all of your help, I could not have done it without you!”
"When I came to Eric, I was totally confused and my final exam was just around the corner, so I was in fear of failing. After just two weeks (6 two hour sessions), Eric provided clarity and helped me understand what I was doing. He is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, motivating and supportive of people who are struggling with statistics. Thanks to his help, I was able to pass the course with a good mark!";

Client Reviews (2)
Eric was a helpful and knowledgable tutor who always went the extra mile to help me prepare for tests/exams and assignments. He took a lot of his personal time unpaid to answer email questions and prepare for tutoring sessions. He was flexible with hours and reliable to meet weekly.
Eric is a very good tutor. He is very knowledgeable in statistics, focused on the needs of his students, and most of all - patient. He has made statistics approachable and I am already seeing improvement in both my attitude and grades. Thank you Eric!
