About Derek

I've been an avid learner since elementary school: I read as far ahead of my class as I was allowed, and I generally moved on to the next math lesson before the current one was done being taught. I saw how this frustrated my teachers, and learned how to sit and absorb what they said, and even discuss the material with them. I gained an appreciation for the teacher-student relationship.

I've had some experience tutoring: I used to babysit two sisters in different grades and would help them with their homework, and often in school I studied by recalling to classmates what we'd learned. I'd like to continue my love of learning and sharing with a tutoring position.

I was a Classical Mathematics minor. Amongst other classes, I took: Calculus I-III, Linear Algebra, Foundations of Mathematics, Programming, Data Structures, etc. Much of the studying I did for these classes was explaining to students who had missed or lost lessons what was going on in the class.

I've been writing since high school, and majored in English with a Creative Writing focus. For our English degree at Kenyon, we had to analyze 13 texts and take a 4.5 hr. test on said texts, as well as complete a 40+ page creative thesis. I've collaborated in nearly every class I've taken, and work well with others.

I would love to tutor for you, and I hope I can be what you're looking for. Don't hesitate to contact me.
