About Derek

Does your child need help in math, science or history? I have a varied educational background with a BA History and a MA in Legal Studies. If you need a patient individual to help guide your child through frustrating subjects contact me and we can work together to alleviate the stress of learning difficulties. I will make learning fun for your child.

I will sit down with you and your child to discuss what issues are taking place in their subject area of need. From there we can develop a plan to increase proficiency and ways to increase aptitude through study. I will talk with your child to see how they view the issues and to see how they work through problems. I will offer advice and tips on how to improve study and make the lessons fun.

I am well versed in science, math, history and the law. My varied educational and work experience has taught me how to adapt to fast-paced changes. I do well thinking on the fly and my patient demeanor has served me well in discussing issues. I am comfortable with public speaking and make the difficult easy to understand with my ability to speak plainly and in a non-threatening manner.

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.

I played baseball in high school and currently play baseball every Sunday morning for the NJIBL (NJ Independent Baseball League). I have played men's recreational baseball for 10 years.
