About Derek


Bio

Hi there. My name is Derek and I am a very enthusiastic 28-year old that loves the outdoors, baseball, and baking. I recently completed my teaching credential for elementary school and my masters degree in teaching.

Working in elementary education for several years now. I started out working in special education for the first 6 months and then found my way into general education, more specifically, 5th grade. I plan on becoming a teacher as soon as covid is over and school districts...

Hi there. My name is Derek and I am a very enthusiastic 28-year old that loves the outdoors, baseball, and baking. I recently completed my teaching credential for elementary school and my masters degree in teaching.

Working in elementary education for several years now. I started out working in special education for the first 6 months and then found my way into general education, more specifically, 5th grade. I plan on becoming a teacher as soon as covid is over and school districts are actually hiring again.

I love working with the younger kiddos and being responsible for those a-ha moments. Seeing them grow and learn and realise that they have the ability to do things that didn't think they could do is a very rewarding feeling for me, and is the reason that I am entering the field of education.

My two favourite subjects are social studies and math, so those are the subjects where I feel most adequate to tutor.

I am a very down-to-earth individual and I always strive to do my best to make sure that students are enjoying themselves... I try to make things as fun as possible whenever I can :)

I think I'm a pretty good math tutor because not only do I really enjoy elementary level math, but I feel like I have the ability to take a lot of the pain out of it and just focus on the concepts.. all the while doing my very best to make it enjoyable for my students :)

I've always been a pretty good speller! I possess a pretty good ability to hear words and sound them out just based on my knowledge of phonics and phonemic awareness :) I then try to translate that so that kids can try and become better spellers.

To be honest, One thing that really stands out is the fact that I am a mail. In my experience, students love working with a male teacher because there are not many of us in the field of early education! So my students always enjoy that pa

I never take a strict approach to anything. I am a very easy-going individual and I believe that my students respond to that. They
