About Derek

Growing up in a culturally-diverse neighborhood, I always wanted to learn a second language. So, naturally, after studying Spanish in high school, I continued his language learning at the University of Tennessee and spent a semester in Sevilla, Spain. While there, I taught English, enrolled in rigorous art and culture classes, and volunteered to assist the homeless living in the city. Since that short time ago, my travel experience has grown to fifteen countries! I hope to encourage students to study abroad and promote the numerous opportunities available to them through language acquisition. In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Spanish. Currently, I assist students in planning and preparing to study abroad as well as successfully market their international career. I am also expected to obtain my TEFL in June 2015 as part of the Council on International Educational Exchange's (CIEE) TEFL Certification Program.

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 have taught and tutored children in the past by volunteering at the Smyrna Public Library, teaching in South Korea (6 months), and teaching in Spain (3 months). I am passionate about education, so I make sure to be diligent and precise when it comes to guiding students through new material. I am CIEE TEFL certified to teach young learners and completed my 30 hour course alongside my 150 hour general course.

ESL/ESOL

During my semester abroad in Seville, Spain, I taught English to native Spanish speakers. I majored in Spanish and understand the underlying/fundamental aspects of language acquisition. After a very positive and rewarding four month experience teaching, I chose to pursue a TEFL certification which I completed 06/2015.
