"eres" means "you are" when the "you" is a friend, child, someone you know well. "Es" is every other singular person in the world: he is, she is, it is, and you are when 'you' is a person that you speak formally with (someone you'd call, sir, ma'am, or the boss)

Both are forms of the verb "ser" looking at a verb conjugation chart will explain some of the insanity. http://www.spanishdict.com/conjugate/ser
