Hi, my name is Derrick and I may be the ideal tutor for you! I am currently a research chemist in the R&D department at a cosmetic skincare company. I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's in Science and majored in Chemical Biology. As part of my work, I tutor students in math and science-related topics.
I try to be very flexible in my teaching. Since every student is unique, so are their studying habits. Outlines and practice problems are a fundamental part of my tutoring technique it allows me to review the material that I will teach so that any questions in the future can be answered effectively. I am always available to my students for help by phone or email regardless of whether or not a session is set up. I am able to be reached at most hours of the day for questions!

Great!

Derrick has been great in helping my son with Honors Algebra & Biology. He has provided a better understanding of both subjects and encourages confidence. My son is very comfortable with his teaching style. We will continue to use his services and would recommend Derrick to anyone looking for a tutor.

Wonderful tutor!

Derrick was patient and had some wonderful techniques to remember various things in chemistry. He encouraged me to keep going and to not give up. Even though my professor was difficult and not the greatest, in the end I passed and did learn a lot. I would recommend him to anyone having difficulty in chemistry. Thank you Derrick!

Very Effective Tutor!

Derrick has been working with our sophomore son over the past several months in the content areas of Geometry and Chemistry. He has a great approach. He is very knowledgeable and has the ability to get the students attention and make sure they grasp the material before moving on. He often can make things much clearer than the classroom teacher. Derrick is very flexible and always available to help the students, even in his off hours, and he does his best to fit my son in and we really appreciate that. I highly recommend Derrick and will continue to use him throughout the summer to keep my son's skills sharp.
