##### About Derek

My passion for teaching and learning continues each and every day! As a certified teacher, I have tutored students for nearly 12 years, and each of them has achieved success, both academically and socially! I enjoy providing one-on-one instruction to students who truly want to learn, and parents who are dedicated to helping their child realize their full potential! Students who I've tutored in the past simply needed a different environment to be successful, and a different voice to teach them. To me, there is no better feeling than when a child is able to solve a math problem or comprehend a challenging vocabulary word!

I specialize in tutoring students in all subject areas from Kindergarten to 6th grade (K-6). I also possess a Reading and ESOL endorsement (K-12), which means that I am able to provide intensive reading/language arts instruction, and work with students who speak a language other than English at home.

My tutoring sessions are typically conducted at neighborhood libraries and coffee shops. If you have an alternate location for our sessions, please let me know. I am more than willing to travel to your area for our tutoring sessions!

I have taught math a number of different ways, by providing whole group, small group, and one-on-one instruction. My teaching methods include using a variety of manipulatives and real-world examples to achieve a clear understanding of what the problem is and how to solve it.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you and helping achieve success, both inside and outside the classroom!
