About Derek

I am a California Native with 2 years classroom experience and CELTA certificate. I've taught at several internationally recognized ESL schools in San Diego, San Francisco, and Istanbul.

One on one teaching is the form I most excel at. I enjoy gearing a lesson to a student's particular needs, and watching them develop and succeed. I strongly recommend students send me an e-mail including their level and what they wish to learn. This way I can create a lesson plan aimed specifically at developing your weaknesses, and fortifying your strengths.

I have traveled to over 25 countries and have taught students from all over the world. My experience is certainly international, and while my approach is serious and structured I enjoy getting to know students and making the learning experience comfortable and engaging.

While I am flexible, I require a 24-hour cancellation policy. Ideally we will meet at a coffee shop in La Jolla, although I have a car and can travel under certain circumstances.

I look forward to working with you.
