About Derek

My name is Derek and I am certified in English grades 8-12. I completed my student teaching at New Bedford High School in 2012 and completed Bridgewater State University in 2012. Since then, I am nearly complete with my Master's in Teaching from UMASS Dartmouth (graduating in Spring 2015). I am currently an Assistant Teacher at READS Academy in Middleboro, MA in the 7th and 8th grade where I assist both classes in every class. Even though I regularly help students with math and science, they are not my strong suits.
I have always loved to teach teenagers who are willing to learn. Literature is certainly my strong suit and I thoroughly enjoy to read and learn about reading. I am also a historian who loves to continue to learn things from the past. As far as hours for tutoring, I will be available any day after school and weekends for as much as you need. Thank you for taking the time in considering me as a tutor.

Regards,
Derek R.
