About Derrick

Hello,

I am new to "tutoring", but I have always been the go-to for question by other students when I was in school. I have always been a natural leader and teacher with a passion for learning and spreading my knowledge. Professionally I work in management, but I look at myself as a leader and not a boss. every opportunity is a chance to learn something. I am a very knowledgeable and easy-going person with critical thinking being one of my strongest attributes. I've always had a knack for problem solving and being able to apply/explain complex matters in a way to make it simple.

When I started college I naturally gravitated toward being a math major. It has always been my strong point back in high school (15 years ago). I scored a 24 on the math portion without any real preparation. In college I was an average student (2.8 GPA) but was very proficient in math and science. I would assist other student in the math work even in my high level Calculus classes. The highest college level math course that I have taken is 200 level Calculus which is a course designed for math majors.

I ended up originally going when Chemistry as my major, but changed to Biology (pre-med) with the plan of becoming a Physical Therapist. Due to lack of funds I did not complete college. Five years later, I returned to Community College and earned my Associate's Degree, now here I am ten years after leaving my four-year university giving it another shot this time as a Computer Science major with more knowledge and better focus than before. I figure this is a good time to help the younger generation reach their potential.

I am available any time to answer your questions you may have regarding me, my experience, or to schedule lessons. I look forward to hearing from you.
