I have tutored in various math subjects for 20 years now. I believe that anyone can learn this stuff; they just need to be taught correctly. I am also a former graduate teacher assistant for several undergraduate courses, where I led problem-solving sessions and interacted one-on-one with students of various learning styles. I specialize in "breaking down" concepts to make problem solving as simple and straight-to-the-point as possible. One of the main things that students notice about me is...
I have tutored in various math subjects for 20 years now. I believe that anyone can learn this stuff; they just need to be taught correctly. I am also a former graduate teacher assistant for several undergraduate courses, where I led problem-solving sessions and interacted one-on-one with students of various learning styles. I specialize in "breaking down" concepts to make problem solving as simple and straight-to-the-point as possible. One of the main things that students notice about me is my passion for math. I always tell my students that it's OK if they don't like math, because I like it enough for the both of us! My job is to help all my students succeed, no matter what!
I have studied and practiced mathematics for my entire life. I have a bachelor's degree in Mathematics, and a master's degree in Applied Mathematics. Therefore, I have a very deep understanding of the subject matter, and can explain concepts in as many ways as necessary to help new students understand better. I can help with the use of different technologies, including TI-83, TI-84, Excel, and R, just to name a few.
Questions? Ready to start lessons? Please feel free to contact me! I will respond quickly.
Derrick has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 2 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
He knows his stuff!
Mr. Derrick will put in the work to make sure your assignment is something he can work with! He’s patient, respectful and a hard worker! I will hire him for future assignments.AMY, 2 lessons with Derrick

Very supportive and encouraging throughout tutoring session
In this tutoring session, Derrick helped me understand the fundamentals of figuring out how to solve basic coding errors. The main things I like about Derrick's tutoring is that he meets me on the level I am currently at and communicates well while walking through problem solving. Derrick has helped me gain confidence when working in R studio as well as influenced me to not get frustrated when errors occurAntwarn, 3 lessons with Derrick
Responsive, Knowledgeable, and patient
Derrick responded to my last minute request for tutoring my son in college statistics. My son has worked with other tutors but felt Derrick explained the concepts in a manner he could retain. We will be contacting Derrick again.Jackie, 1 lesson with Derrick
knows his stuff..
He definitely knows a lot about statistics and help me finish some of my work. I did feel like he was a little irritated with my lack of knowledge though, so i decided not to ask to much… overall he is an ok teacherKevin, 1 lesson with Derrick
knowledgeable and great at explaining,
Excellent, simplifying R, its use, syntax t-test, chi square, Clear, concise, explanation easy for someone who has never used this format before. Went above and beyond to explain and answer question regarding functionality. If I used Derrick earlier, I would have grasped a better understanding prior to now.Jacqueline, 8 lessons with Derrick
Better than a Bootcamp
Before I met with Derrick I had attended a bootcamp for foundational data science. I learned more in 3 hours with Derrick than I did for 10 weeks of YouTube videos in the bootcamp with no one-on-one instruction. Consider paying Derrick instead.Keldan, 7 lessons with Derrick
great teacher really patient
It helped me with my assignment and answered all of my questions, related also he gave me his insights and manage time perfectlyValeska, 2 lessons with Derrick
Learned more in an hour than a month of class!
Derrick has been great helping me with my Engineering Statistics course. He's been able to help me understand the overall concepts and how it all links together which is something my teacher at Rutgers has been unable to do. After working with Derrick for 30 minutes, I decided to establish sessions for the rest of the semester. Highly recommended!Will, 9 lessons with Derrick
Very Knowledgeable and patient.
Derrick displayed a deep knowledge of ggplot2 and Palmerpenguins. I have a better grasp of programming language R now.Ivan, 2 lessons with Derrick
