About Derek


Bio

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.

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!

Derek rules!

Derek arrived on time. Took the time to meet with me and our son. Quickly formed a plan of action and utilizes the hour well. We made a schedule for future sessions. He helped our son with ways to think about and simplify problems. He explained concepts and how to apply them in an understandable and relate able way. We were very pleased with the session. My son found it valuable.

Very knowledgable and patient tutor.

Derek helped my daughter with her college math class and gave her the confidence to succeed. He was very accommodating to her schedule, was timely, encouraging, and made learning the subject easier than the Professor in class.
