For the last 6 months, Eric has been teaching my 14 year old son a weekly enrichment class on aerospace engineering, and my son has loved every minute of it. Eric taught him the Python coding skills as well as the math and physics he needed to compute the path of a space shuttle launch and return. Eric was able to explain advanced topics in a way that my son found very accessible and he was always great with answering questions. My son's comments about the lessons are "I learn a lot and they are really fun." He also regularly finds applications for what Eric taught him in other academic areas, such as math class and Mathletes competitions. Working with Eric is definitely a highlight of my son's week and has solidified his ambition to study aerospace engineering in college.
My 10 year old son worked with Eric on programming in Python and HTML editing for 4 months, and learned a lot about it. Eric provided my son with help and constructive feedback on projects. One of the projects involved coding a calculator, and Eric taught my son how to use operators and the float functions. They made 3D graphs in Python which was very interesting for him to learn. My son learned how to edit HTML websites and was able to apply this knowledge to his own website. My son found Eric extremely knowledgeable in computer science, fun to learn with, and felt that they have a lot in common.
