About Derek

I am an experienced tutor who also teaches at the college level. I have taught in multiple science lectures including physics, chemistry and biology. I have tutored in all 3 subjects as well. I have a high level of success, and my students are grateful for the improvement they see in their retention as well as their grade.

I have had success in tutoring numerous students as well as teaching students both at the community college and university level. I have tutored multiple high school students with marked improvements on grades in physics and biology especially. I am currently instructing in biology at the community college that I work at and once the exercise science department grows will be expanding into that field as well.

My background is in biology and kinesiology, but I also have a large involvement in medicine as a 911 EMT. Doing work in the hospital setting allows for me to understand a lot of the clinical basis in the science I teach.
