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.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 including the lab sections. I have learned techniques to understand and explain the difficult organic chemistry concepts, that I incorporate with my students to assist in their understanding of this subject.
