About Derek


Bio

Hello! My name is Derek and I am an AYA Mathematics student at Bowling Green State University. I hope to be a middle or high school math teacher in the next 2 years. The subjects I enjoy teaching most are Algebra courses and geometry courses, but I am comfortable teaching any grade level.
I have 2 years of experience with tutoring students. Most of this experience has come from my time at BGSU where we are required to spend a few hours a week in a classroom to fulfill our field experience...

Hello! My name is Derek and I am an AYA Mathematics student at Bowling Green State University. I hope to be a middle or high school math teacher in the next 2 years. The subjects I enjoy teaching most are Algebra courses and geometry courses, but I am comfortable teaching any grade level.
I have 2 years of experience with tutoring students. Most of this experience has come from my time at BGSU where we are required to spend a few hours a week in a classroom to fulfill our field experience requirements. My approach to helping students solve problems is by initially asking them what they think and to provide guidance in a way that allows the student to figure out a solution by themselves. I think this approach is more effective in helping a student maintain the information as opposed to just telling them what they should do and leave them wondering why they should just do what I tell them.
I have taken several advanced math classes in college all the way up to modern geometry which I am currently taking now. I believe I have the necessary knowledge to work with high school students as I have just passed my OAE for my initial teaching license in Mathematics in January 2019. I am eager to work with any child who may need help and I am looking forward to gaining even more experience with working with students to use in my future career.

I am very open to working with any student and would love to get my tutoring career started!
