##### About Derek

My love for tutoring students comes from a natural combination of two passions; a passion for math and all things related to numbers as well as a passion for relating with people. I first discovered how much I enjoyed teaching when I was a teacher's assistant for a college algebra class at MSU. Since the time I finished my degree, I have continued to tutor part time.

Some of my goals in a tutoring session include making sure the student has an understanding of the material, helping the student not feel overwhelmed by the curriculum, and finding a point to challenge the student's growth in the content area.

While I especially enjoy teaching high school and college level algebra, I have had much experience with many different curriculum over the years ranging from middle school mathematics through college level calculus and statistics.

I have a flexible schedule, including availability on some weekends. I'd love an opportunity to come alongside you/your student to help meet your personal goals and achieve success!
