About Derek


Bio

Welcome to my profile! My name is Derek and I specialize in math and science. I have a degree in Biology from the University of North Florida. I have tutored all through college and I can help people understand the more complex science subjects. I specialize in Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Genetics and any Biology subjects. I have some biology graduate work and am continuing to work through my masters coursework.

Welcome to my profile! My name is Derek and I specialize in math and science. I have a degree in Biology from the University of North Florida. I have tutored all through college and I can help people understand the more complex science subjects. I specialize in Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Genetics and any Biology subjects. I have some biology graduate work and am continuing to work through my masters coursework.
When it comes to my teaching method, I want to make sure that you understand the subject in depth. I can break things down to the minutia. I also think that understanding the mechanisms behind the math are very important and so I am able to explain that down to the most foundational level. I also have experience in English, thus proofreading science papers is also within my wheelhouse.

I always really enjoyed math and thus enjoy explaining math. I have experience working with all ages and focus my methods toward whatever age group I am working with.

Please let me know if I can help you!

Zoology

Biology 3 at my college was about structure and function as well as taxonomy of all of the major phyla in the animal kingdom. We also covered phylogeny, and performed dissections of multiple animals. I worked in two laboratories, one with mice and the other with grasshoppers, performing physiological and molecular research on them.

Reviews


Knowledgeable and patient

I’m a first year student in Chemistry, Derek has put me at ease on the subject. He explained things that professors don’t have the time to explain. I am looking forward to the one on one instruction. Thank you Derek.....

Irene, 3 lessons with Derek

Great Tutor

Derek did a great job explaining the math material and took his time helping me work through the problems that I was struggling with. Look forward to our next session together.

Carolyn, 3 lessons with Derek

Derek seemed very knowledgeable about the material and school curriculum.

My 8th grade daughter felt like he was very patient and knew the material. She left the session feeling prepared for the work ahead of her. We will definitely use Derek again!

Cristen, 3 lessons with Derek

Great tutor

After just 2 lessons with Derek and my son went from failing Algebra 2 to getting a 91% on his test. Derek did an awesome job and I would highly recommend him.

Evelyn, 4 lessons with Derek

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Derek will be working with my son on a weekly basis. He will be instructing him in math and chemistry. The first lesson went great. My son felt that Derek explains well and is very organized.

Derek did a great job

Derek did a great job of reviewing my daughters algebra 2 polynomial homework as well as creating examples for her to work though.
