Hello! My name is Derek. I have been an elementary school teacher for eight years and I love it! I graduated Adelphi university in 2018 with my Master's in Elementary education and special education. I am also certified in teaching music from grades K through 12.

Being a teacher is a rewarding career for me because I love watching my students grow and become contributing members of society. I tailor my lessons to my students needs whether that means creating modified lessons based on their needs, or creating small groups that target a students strengths. I find a way to help each of my students grow.

I am certified in Birth through 6th and have been teaching common core math for 8 years. I have had 3 years of 100% of my classes passing the NY state math tests.

Please reach out if you need any tutoring for math or ELA!
