Eric G.


Eric is a doctoral candidate in the Urban Planning program at Columbia University.  Growing up in New York and commuting to high school and Mets games on the subway shaped his research interest in transportation networks and urban form.  Prior to enrolling at Columbia, he earned a Master’s degree in Urban Planning from NYU and a Bachelor’s degree in history from Bowdoin College.

While at NYU and Columbia, Eric has taught course sections on statistics and worked with over a hundred students on writing research papers.  At Cambridge Coaching, Eric is a standardized test prep tutor (SSAT/ISEE, SAT, GRE) and he specializes in homework help across a range of subjects, including history, statistics, and writing, for middle and high school students.  He also enjoys working with students on their college applications.

Eric enjoys unplanned walks in any city and grousing about the Mets and local politics to anyone who will listen.

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "I really cannot say enough nice things about Eric. He has a great way about him that gave my son tremendous confidence and actually really stoked his interest in history. I think Eric is really exceptional and I intend to recommend him to anyone who asks. And, I should add, I am not a huge fan of the whole tutoring industry in general. But Eric is more than a tutor, he has a passion for his subject and that makes him a great teacher, which is a huge additional benefit that was as valuable as it was unexpected."
