About Derek

I'm excited to be taking the opportunity to begin offering my skills and knowledge on how to educate children for their futures. I taught grades 2-8 for seven years before deciding to jump to the collegiate level and begin instructing college students. I've really enjoyed both areas of teaching. I've also coached sports for 13 years and enjoy giving my time to help enhance the sports skills of these kids, as well as teach them how sports and life can go hand in hand.

I really understand how to relate to children and help them understand the importance of doing well in school. I like to teach life lessons while also teaching what students are struggling with in school or what they are wanting to improve.

I have an undergrad degree and an MBA degree so I not only teach, but I practice what I teach. With having these two degrees I do have school loans and this is another reason that I've decided to tutor, not only can I help shape the minds of youths, but I can work on paying back what I've worked so hard to accomplish.

Please feel free to reach out to me and ask me any questions you would like. Thanks and I look forward to working with you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Baseball

I've coached baseball for 13 years ranging in ages from 10-19. I've turned several programs around to produce successful programs. I've had many students that have gone on to play college baseball. I also have taught/teach the importance of education and how it goes hand in hand with the success of an athlete.

Business

I have both an undergraduate degree and a MBA. I've worked in the business field for the past 10 years in marketing, building a business, leadership, and many more business subjects. Combine this with my vast knowledge and experience in education and you have someone that displays passion and motivation for helping students understand business and providing future success tips.

Career Development

I'm currently the Director of Career Services at a local college. As the director I teach students resume building, portfolio building, interview tips, dressing for success, networking skills, and many more subjects on improving career skills. I also have the education, training, and experience to qualify me to teach such subject areas.

Elementary (K-6th)

I had the opportunity to teach grades K-8 for 7 years. I stopped teaching in 2007 in order to go back to school myself and work on completing my Masters Degree. I completed this in 2008 and quickly was hired by a local college as the Director of Career Services and instruct different classes. I would be a good fit for K-6th because I have the experience to teach, knowledge of the importance of education, and passion to see students succeed through school.
