About Derek


Bio

I am a crazy mathematics fanatic. I have loved math from age 14 in high school. As a high school student, I breezed through accelerated classes (1/2 year courses) until I was learning calculus as a junior. I started tutoring at age 15 and created a solid business in the Lafayette area. By the time I started college, I realized that teaching math was my passion, and I decided to get a math degree.

I am a crazy mathematics fanatic. I have loved math from age 14 in high school. As a high school student, I breezed through accelerated classes (1/2 year courses) until I was learning calculus as a junior. I started tutoring at age 15 and created a solid business in the Lafayette area. By the time I started college, I realized that teaching math was my passion, and I decided to get a math degree. While in college I continued to tutor. I worked for a tutoring business in Opelousas for 3 years, which was geared towards tutoring high school students. I also tutored college level students on the side. I now currently am a high school teacher in Plaquemines Parish.
My favorite part of teaching and tutoring is seeing the student gain confidence and begin to love the subject as much as I do. I take pride in the student no longer needing my services. When my students can actually keep up with the coursework on their own without assistance, I know I have done my job as a tutor.

As the holder of a mathematics undergraduate degree, my transcript has the subjects of calculus 1, calculus 2, calculus 3, differential equations, vector calculus, advanced calculus 1, advanced calculus 2, linear algebra, etc. Calculus is my specialty, and regardless of what level class you are taking, I can guarantee that I will be more than able to help. I often take time to explain the concept using visual examples so that you can visualize what you are solving. Often, I find that understanding the purpose of the subject helps motivate you to build strategies and problem solve rather than memorize a bunch of formulas.

If you need a little extra help in your math class, I am the guy for the job. I am available all over the New Orleans area weekday evenings and anytime on weekends.
