About Derek

I am a Junior at North Broward Prep who is enthusiastic about helping other students reach their goals. Since I attend North Broward on an academic scholarship, I have to always stay on top of my schoolwork and maintain a high grade point average. I am a member of the National Honor Society and have always been known by those around me as an extremely dependable person. Also, I view the fact that I am still in high school as an advantage because it allows me to connect and relate to the students I tutor in ways that other, older tutors may not be able to.

I have also tutored since I was in 6th grade and my clients have always been very satisfied with the way I teach. One of the reasons for this is that I always maintain good relationships with the students I tutor. I am naturally an easy-going and friendly person, which helps me understand the learning styles of each of the kids I tutor. It's also what makes the experience unique, in the sense that I personally want to see my client succeed about as much as they want to succeed themselves.

I am an outstanding Math tutor because I have always enjoyed solving numerical problems in all types of situations. I have tutored multiple people in Algebra 1, Prealgebra, Geometry, and other basic Math classes and all of the people I tutored have felt satisfied with the improvements seen in their performance. I currently am in my second year of SL Mathematics which requires me to learn basic calculus, and strengthens my grasp on algebraic material. In terms of how I tutor Math, I like to make sure my client develops a solid understanding of the material so that they will be able to solve complex problems in more stressful situations (such as tests). This means I help my client focus on the bigger picture, and develop strategies that they can use to succeed in the future.

I have tutored multiple kids in AP World History, AP Human Geography, and various other Social Studies Courses. All of my students have been very satisfied with their results. In fact, the two students I tutored last year both received excellent scores on the AP Human Geography exam. On a personal level, I received a 5 out of 5 on both the AP World History and AP Human Geography exams, and scored a 750 on the AP World History Subject Test. Therefore, I understand exactly what it takes to be successful in those two courses. During my years in grade school, I won my school's Geography Bee twice, which was mainly because I have always enjoyed learning about other unique countries and customs.

Please feel free to contact me directly through text, calls, or email in order to set up a session, or even just to learn more about how I can help you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Basketball

I have played basketball for seven years. I have played on multiple teams including two state championship winning teams for middle school. I also played my freshman year of high school for my school and for a travel team.

Bodybuilding

I have lifted weights for about three years now so I know how to lift weights properly. I bench more than my body weight and I have experience with different types of workouts. I have also helped other kids gain muscle through my workouts.

Soccer

I have played soccer for seven years. I have played on multiple teams and have been to multiple showcases with my travel soccer teams. I currently play Varsity soccer for my school and have scored eight goals so far this season.
