About Derek

I have a BA in Political Science from DePaul University and an MA in Geography & Environmental Studies from Northeastern Illinois University.

Additionally, I have a graduate-level GIS certificate. My thesis research in grad school was the effects of tourism and armed conflict levels on deforestation rates in national parks in Colombia. I utilized ArcGIS, QGIS, and R for statistical analysis. I have GIS experience in scientific research and on the field volunteering for the Chicago Parks District.

I have a well-rounded knowledge of GIS. And I have several years of experience studying geography.

I have common sense and will be a level headed tutor who will make sure you understand what you're doing. If any challenge comes up that even I don't know how to solve, I'll be sure that we learn how to solve it together so that you can see the process experienced people go through to continue their education.

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.

GIS

I have an MA in Geography & Environmental Studies including a graduate-level GIS certificate. In my studies I took eight courses focused on GIS and received an A in all of them. My thesis research was on the relationship between tourism and deforestation rates in national parks and had GIS work as its primary component. I have done GIS work for two different companies.
