Hi, my name is Derrick and I may be the ideal tutor for you! I am currently a chemist in the R&D department at a cosmetic skincare company. I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's in Science and majored in Chemical Biology. As part of my work, I tutor students in math and science-related topics.
I try to be very flexible in my teaching. Since every student is unique, so are their studying habits. Outlines and practice problems are a fundamental part of my tutoring technique it allows me to review the material that I will teach so that any questions in the future can be answered effectively. I am always available to my students for help by phone or email regardless of whether or not a session is set up. I am able to be reached at most hours of the day for questions!
I have experience doing research in a genetics lab and would be able to help anyone struggling in this subject.
I've been using Apple products ever since I received my iphone years ago. I currently use a macbook air and have taught friends and family to use their iPhones, apple computers, iPads, and iTunes. Using these products requires an understanding of their software and competitor products.
