“What sets Eric apart is his ability to listen and adapt to the needs of students at all different levels.  Eric has helped my friends and I prepare for regents exams from freshman year to junior year and has made a remarkable impact on my grades, performance during tests, and study skills. During tutoring sessions he would have me create calendars to stay organized throughout the process, do practice multiple choice questions, write essays about specific topics, make study guides, etc. Learning to “right stuff down,” especially during regents exams, has been one of the most valuable techniques that Eric teaches his students to do and one of the many test taking methods that I will carry to college and beyond.”

I got the chance to get to know Eric towards the end of middle school, as an 8th grade student who struggled mostly with getting all my strongest ideas on the page and doubting my first answer almost routinely. At this point in my educational career I became extremely discouraged because I consistently felt that getting in my own way with ‘careless errors’ and ‘overthinking’ on both essays and tests was inevitable. Eric helped me open my eyes to new strategies that would help organize my ideas in a strategic and useful way rather than letting small aspects ruin a bigger picture. These strategies sparked a newfound confidence that caused me to bump a full letter grade in three of my core classes in under 2 months. I continued using Eric all throughout High School refining these same skills he taught me as a credulous 8th grade student. Without these skills that I learned from Eric I definitely would not be where I am today, entering my second year of college using the same skills I learned years ago, as simple as “righting stuff down,” have truly molded me into a better writer, student, and person who can effectively manage time and obstacles. These lessons are truly invaluable and gave me the confidence to exceed even my own expectations. I will always be grateful for Eric and the worlds of knowledge he has gifted to me.

Testimonials

Right stuff down.

As a high school freshman, I was worried about doing well in so many different subjects that all counted on my transcript. Eric taught me how social studies tests, science tests, foreign language tests and math tests are all the same. He showed me how multiple choice questions and essays are actually the same things. He proved to me that I could study for every test in every subject the exact same way. This consistency in how I studied and started to “right stuff down” on tests made academic success a reality for me.

As a high school junior, I was worried about doing well on so many different sections of the ACT. Eric taught me how the approach to all of the sections is exactly the same. He showed me how science questions are the same as math questions, english questions and reading questions. So instead of worrying about content for all of the sections of the test, I focused on one approach to every single one of the 215 questions. I took the “right stuff down” method that Eric taught me in 9th grade and applied it directly to my ACT in 11th grade. That is consistency.

Eric and I worked together when I applied to college, and we continue to work together as I apply to grad school. I applied the “right stuff down method” even on my computerized GRE, and I now work for Eric as a tutor.

I don’t know anyone else who thinks or teaches like Eric Zimmerman. Eric and his tutoring company changed my life academically and how I approach all obstacles I face.
