Derek is an excellent tutor! Very patient, loves what he is doing, and my child is learning. I'm so happy and grateful!!!
First off, Derek was very flexible with my son's busy schedule, and willing to start a lengthy session at 8 pm Monday evening on just a day's notice. Derek really saved the day for us! My son was left high and dry (along with the rest of his class!) by a teacher notorious for his lack of pedagogical skills. They were expected to do a lengthy and complicated assignment involving planetary orbital mechanics and the dynamics of spinning tennis balls in motion, using MATLAB to solve the associated differential equations numerically. Unfortunately the professor never bothered to actually teach his class how to solve and plot ODEs using MATLAB, so the students were left to their own devices on a tough project representing 10% of their final grade. Derek stepped into the breach and taught my son how to code in MATLAB in order to obtain numerical solutions of ODEs and plot the results. This enabled my son to apply these principles to the projects at hand, and complete them in time for today's deadline to turn them in. We are so grateful for Derek's willingness to help, and his ability to teach my son to tackle tough problems using MATLAB for numerical solutions in a very short period of time. Thank you Derek! We highly recommend Derek in the strongest terms for anyone needing help with MATLAB to solve ODEs numerically!
Derek has been tutoring for me now for a month and I have some more clarity and understanding of algebra. Derek is very patient and has a deep understanding of the main concepts. Derek has a passion for the subject of math and enjoys teaching it, which helps make the subject more bearable for a struggling student like myself.
Derek is a great tutor. He is very knowledgeable and explains the lessons in a way the students can understand.
My son has been very happy with Derek's tutoring sessions. We plan on continuing with him throughout the class.
