About Derak


Bio

I just finished teaching Dual Credit/AP Chemistry, Algebra I, and Stats (among other courses) as a full-time Upper School Teacher last school year; so, I know what needs to be covered for these courses. This included online teaching for the entire 4th quarter.

I just finished teaching Dual Credit/AP Chemistry, Algebra I, and Stats (among other courses) as a full-time Upper School Teacher last school year; so, I know what needs to be covered for these courses. This included online teaching for the entire 4th quarter.

I also have a PhD in Chemistry and have authored several publications in scientific journals as a result of years of hands-on research in the chemistry laboratory. In addition to my research during my graduate studies, I completed two postdoctoral research fellowships resulting in several more publications that are pending peer-review.

I taught Algebra I for 3 days a week (80 min/day, block schedule) as one of my courses for the last school year as a full-time Math and Science Teacher. Throughout most of the school year, I made sure to give the students a short quiz at the end of each class. I also prepared most of my own tests.

I taught Dual Credit/AP Chemistry (High School), as well as pre-AP Chemistry (7th Grade), for the last school year as a full-time Math and Science Teacher. I have also taught General Chemistry (Freshmen) for a semester each at two community colleges. In addition, I have a PhD in Chemistry, and taught General Chemistry (Freshmen) for 4 years as a graduate student. My research during graduate school and postdoctoral work has led to authorship on 4 publications with several more articles pending peer-review.

I like helping people, and I would love to help you improve your understanding and confidence in math and chemistry. I am available for online or in-person tutoring.
