EducationSenior Communications Major, Writing Minor at Portland State University
I teach students writing, social skills, and self-esteem.
I've found that many students need help learning the skill of writing. I teach writing skills. I edit essays. One of my specialties is college application essays. I also work with students to develop and improve their public speaking skills.
I'm currently mentoring students in the greater Portland Area.
It's my purpose in life to help students grow, succeed, and excel. I teach students the habits of success, the principles of communication, and the skills of writing.

Eric is great. My teen was very shy and quiet; he suffered from depression and sadness. Eric turned my son around. He encouraged my son to start meditating, learn new skills, and take interest in hobbies. My son has since picked up piano again. Eric even helped my son learn social skills, and land a marketing internship that he had been eyeing
Eric is incredible. I'm very happy that he's helping my 15 year old high school boy. Eric helps my son Jon write his essays for school. He is teaching him communication and confidence skills as well. Eric is great. I highly recommend him.
I feel so lucky to find Eric to be my 16 yrs. old son's mentor. He won my son's trust at the first session. He helps my son set goals and teaches him meditation to release stress. He also helped my son's school homework like preparing class presentation and refining essay. With great enthusiasm and knowledge, Eric is professional at teaching social skills. My son is usually shy and quiet, but he talks more when being with Eric. I highly recommended Eric!
