About Dereck

I have an absolute love for the sciences, especially the Life Sciences. I remember when I first started studying, my teachers were so passionate about what they were teaching that they would motivate me. It took having bad teachers to realize that when you have good teacher, how easy learning can be. I hope to motivate my students, so that they would have a love for the sciences, just like I do.

I am currently pursuing graduate research in the field of human genetics and systems biology. I have tutored more than 10 students (from middle school to college) in the areas of Biology 1 & 2, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. I believe as a practicing researcher, it is my responsibility to ensure that I communicate science in a way that is interesting and relevant! I rely heavily on application of knowledge in my tutorials, as I believe this is the best way to learn science.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Genetics

Genetics is my real passion within the life sciences. I am interested in how small molecules, specifically genes can regulate body physiology. I have experience in genetic research and have taken classes in both Classical and Molecular Genetics. Currently I am doing my research in Statistical and Quantitative Genetics.
