About Derek


Bio

Hi Everyone,

My name is Derek. I'm 26 years old, and I would love to tutor you!

ABOUT ME:
I graduated from NYU in 2012 as part of the BS/MS program, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and completed a bulk of my graduate work in Chemistry at the same time. Following NYU, I started work at a laboratory at a medical school in NYC studying microbiology, specifically, tuberculosis. I have also earned an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Public Health from Drexel University.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Derek. I'm 26 years old, and I would love to tutor you!

ABOUT ME:
I graduated from NYU in 2012 as part of the BS/MS program, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and completed a bulk of my graduate work in Chemistry at the same time. Following NYU, I started work at a laboratory at a medical school in NYC studying microbiology, specifically, tuberculosis. I have also earned an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Public Health from Drexel University.

I took 2 years off after graduating NYU and started medical school in the MD/PhD program at the University of Miami in 2014. If you haven't figured it out already, I enjoy learning (and teaching). I have been tutoring for over 6 years now in subjects that include: SAT, SAT II [Chemistry, Math I , Math II), Algebra I and II, Pre-calculus, Calculus I, Chemistry, Biology, Organic Chemistry, Geometry and Physics. Recently, I have started tutoring for the science sections on the MCAT. I have tutored in 1-on-1 sessions, but also have taught group lessons as a volunteer at NYC's "The Door". I have also taught health to NYC freshmen at various high schools through the program, "Peer Health Exchange".

My tutoring method ensures that you WILL have success in your class or test. I really do care (and sometimes worry!) about my students' progress. As my own study habits are very rigid and disciplined, I try to pass this wisdom on to my students too. Also, being a creative person, I like to break things up and make up funny words or sayings to help memorize things (because whether we like to admit it or not, a big part of education is memorization). I've also begun to utilize certain apps or websites to add a different type of experience and excite a few different neurons during the learning process.

I am very laid back despite what this ad might suggest! I am by no means a natural genius. I am the first in my family to go to college and have been so successful because I learned great study skills at an early age. I hope I can pass on this wisdom to people. It does take a LOT of work! Are you ready? :)

Biology,

Biology

I have ample experience with tutoring Biology from the high school level, to AP Biology exams, to College level and MCAT Biology tutoring. I have received A's in my College Biology courses and have scored in the 95th percentile on the MCAT in the Biological Sciences section. I also have over 2 years experience in biology-oriented research labs where I have done research on mycobacterial genetics, antiobiotics, and vaccine development.
Calculus,

Calculus

As a Biochemistry major, I have been required to take up to Calculus III. Therefore, I have many years of experience dealing with calculus. As a high school sophomore, I took Caluclus I at Boston University to skip AP calculus and get college credit. I have tutored Calculus I for 2 years now.

Genetics,

Genetics

My current research is in mycobacterial genetics. I am making precise null-deletion knock-outs in M. tuberculosis using specialized plasmids and phages. We utilize genetic tools such as PCR, gel electrophoresis and southern blotting to confirm our results. I have also covered genetics in my MCAT studies and undergraduate Biology courses.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

I currently work in a microbiology lab. It is also heavily overlapped with Biochemistry and Biology.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

I have recently scored in the 95% percentile on the MCAT in the Biological Sciences section, which includes a large portion of Organic Chemistry. I have received an A and A- in Organic Chemistry (I and II) and A's in the respective lab courses. I also have 1 years experience of research in an Organic Chemistry lab at NYU (The Fullerene Group) where I helped synthesize and analyze porphyrin-fullerene systems.

MCAT

I have scored a 12 on the Biological sciences section and a 12 on the Physical Sciences section. This is considered between 94-96th percentile. As I scored totals of 36+ in the Kaplan Course, they asked if I could tutor MCAT for them, but I had to decline due to work related conflicts.
