About Derek

Hello,

My name is Derek. I am a 9 year veteran of the United States ARMY and have traveled the world to include Asia, The Middle East, Europe, and South America. During my time in the military I was responsible for the training and guidance of up to 9 individual soldiers at a time. I was the sole person responsible for their professional development and took great pride in teaching and assisting my soldiers not only in how to advance in the military, but in their personal lives as well. Working in the military, and in subsequent contract work afterward, has granted me the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life and many educational backgrounds.

I attended multiple universities throughout my time in the military, and completed my Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Phoenix after my military contract ended. I have strong literary skills and was often the "go to" member of our many team exercises to complete final preparations for group projects. I enjoy teaching and tutoring individuals who want to help increase their knowledge base and thoroughly enjoy the times when someone "gets it", when that light goes off above their head and the concepts are grasped. My time in the military as a communications technician gave me the opportunity to work with several individuals whose skill-sets were not at the desired level. Often times in deployed locations the personnel I was assisting with troubleshooting equipment were not even in the same field. I have literally talked a cook through how to access a satellite terminal in space!! Being able to break down tasks "Barney style" (a term in the military for simplistic explanation) combined with a complete lack of any ego has granted me the chance to assist many individuals in complicated tasks. I look forward to being able to assist any that have a true desire to learn! I look forward to helping you out as well!

Simple elementary math is used daily in my current job as a Microwave radio technician. We are often tasked with distinguishing differences in readings and measurements, establishing distances between microwave technologies, and tracking alarm histories.

English and literature were my strong suits in my college education. Public speaking comes naturally to me as I am an extremely outgoing person and comfortable in a large setting. Giving multiple briefings to high level officers during my time in service granted me the capabilities to handle the challenges that face many with public speaking. My current position requires communication with field technicians and reporting - sometimes in great detail - known performance histories of our multiple technologies.

As a child I loved Science and throughout my elementary to middle school times Science was my strong suit. I have always had a love for Science related topics even into high school including Chemistry, Biology, and Geology.

I have a very no-nonsense approach to teaching. My only desire is to help you grasp a concept you may not know, or to strengthen your knowledge base in areas you are familiar with, but may lack the confidence in. I am very easy to work with and very accessible to those I tutor. I hope you will consider me for your training needs!

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.

Public Speaking

I completed a Public Speaking course through the University of Maryland University College with a grade of A+. I have been continuously involved in public speaking arrangements with an audience of up to 500 people during a former career as a professional wrestler. I have 8+ years of military service where I was responsible for providing mission briefs to high ranking military and civilian officials on a constant basis. Public speaking is something I am very proficient in and have taught four of my former soldiers to become better public speakers as they are now in leadership positions of their own.
