About Derek

A recent UC Berkeley graduate (BA in Political Science; 3.7 GPA), I specialize in K-12 tutoring in English, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education/Fitness, and the Performing Arts (music, dance, theater). I have tutored students my whole life. It's something I intrinsically enjoy and hope to continue. I've worked with young people in many settings--as a tutor, teacher, coach, and mentor. I'm highly knowledgeable about the subjects I teach, and I've well versed in effective pedagogical techniques that work well for students who need a new approach.

Tutors I love the most are the ones who care--the ones who listen with empathy, prepare themselves academically, dive into their material fully, follow a logical action plan, and inspire lifelong learning. These are my role models who I respect and emulate. Regardless of the material at hand, I strive to cultivate a safe environment that allows students to be themselves, embraces multiple styles of learning, promotes academic excellence, and makes learning fun. When tutoring, I recall my own experiences as a student (and a tutee) to help me contextualize a lesson and give it life in a fresh, understandable way. I fully immerse myself in the material I teach, demonstrating genuine and contagious passion; as a result, my students enjoy the learning process and comprehend material better than they do in the traditional classroom! I'm creative, conscientious, and caring. Please reach out and contact me today.
