About Derica

I am passionate about helping others. I truly enjoy helping students to improve their work and become more confident and self-motivated.

I hold a B.A. in both Creative Writing and Spanish from Beloit College. As both a writing student and teacher, I have extensive experience in critiquing, editing, and proofreading for grammar, organization, voice, and style.

During my eleven years in education, I have taught students from early childhood to adult education. My experience includes teaching test prep and ESL classes. Additionally, I have been a substitute teacher in all subjects for grades K-12, and a third grade teacher for over four years. My students have come from many different cultures and various backgrounds.

As a tutor, I like to make the most of the time with each student, focusing specifically on each student's greatest needs. Whether it is a short assignment or a more long term goal, we'll figure out together how best I can help you accomplish that goal.

Everyone has the potential to learn.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught third grade in all core subject areas for four and a half years. I have also taught as a substitute teacher for K - 12 since November 2012. Currently, I teach Adult Basic Education at a community college at the 4th - 6th grade level.
