Hello. I have been an educator for 20 years. I am a tutor for virtually any student in grades K-12, ASVAB, SAT, and GED. I work to help any High School, Middle School or Elementary student who either needs extra assistance or desires private tutoring in order to get ahead. I am able to teach almost any subject, depending upon the grade level. Helping other people has always been a major passion of mine, and I am very pleased that I have the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and skills to others!
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in a Psychology, with a special focus on how people learn and acquire new information. I have also attended many graduate seminars focusing on education, which have provided me with a strong understanding on how to tutor students most effectively. Since completing my schooling, I have spent nearly two decades as an educator, and I have tutored students in every grade from K-12, as well as some college students.
The subjects I teach are dependent upon the grade level of the student. For High School students and younger, I offer tutoring services in Reading, Language Arts, English, Essay Writing, Social Studies, History, Geography, Psychology, Biology, Chemistry and Test Preparation. Some of my biggest accomplishments as a tutor have been helping High School students achieve high scores on important standardized tests, such as the GED, SAT / ACT, ASVAB, and helping them get accepted into their top college choices.
For Middle School students and younger, I will also teach Math, including basic Algebra and Geometry. Additionally, I will tutor College Students who need assistance in Psychology or general Essay Writing. In general, I feel pretty comfortable tutoring almost any sort of subject to any sort of student, so please do not hesitate to ask me if you need tutoring in a subject that I did not list. As long as I have access to a textbook and online resources, I can usually help a student learn new material quite effectively.
My favorite aspect of tutoring is watching my students succeed and overcome obstacles. I find it extremely rewarding whenever a student tells me how they improved their grades, aced a test, passed the GED, got into the military, or got accepted into their favorite college. Moments like these are one-of-kind, and there’s no better feeling than knowing the student I helped accomplished their goals. As a tutor, I do everything I can to ensure the success of my students.
Eric has worked with my high school son tor two and a half years now in Mathematics. He is a prompt and clear communicator, very reliable, and invariably cheerful. It is clear that he has considerable expertise in Mathematics and is able to explain and facilitate meaningful and productive work sessions. My son never complains about having math tutoring twice a week even though math is a difficult subject for him to master. Eric makes sure to hold him accountable for his work and checks in always with the class syllabus and testing schedule to make sure to practice the appropriate skills and concepts. I highly recommend Eric Colona as a tutor.
There are so many great thing about Mr. Colona our son and family loves about. He is professional, very knowledgeable and reliable. He cares about the student, positively motivates and forms a relationship that carries the student through the process , If our son is looking forward to have a math class, he must have done something good. We highly recommend him.
