Hello everyone. My name is Derek D. I've earned a bachelors degree in engineering and a master's in business administration. During my stay at WVU for my master's program I was required to teach a class of students for a semester. I also tutored for 3 years while in college so my tutoring experience is very well rounded.

I am very proficient in most maths and sciences because of my engineering background. I also have decent English, writing and history knowledge. As a hobby I play 4 different instruments so I can additionally teach music.

I base my tutoring sessions off understanding first what my tutee needs to grasp most and then I work on finding ways they can learn that concept the best based on their particular method of learning. I treat all my tutees with respect and encourage them to continue learning. If there is anything I can help with, please feel free to contact me.

I completed my bachelors degree in engineering and master's degree in business administration. I deal with math every day. I took up to calculus 4 while in college.

I have years of experience when it comes to tutoring and I truly believe I am very well rounded in most disciplines. I will do my best to help any of my tutees with whatever they may need. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! I hope to hear from you soon!

Knowledgeable and patient

Made algebra very clear to me, I like his patience and method of teaching. Algebra has been very difficult for me prior to meeting with Derek. Now it all seems so simple.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Derek works very well with my son. They went over Math topics for ACT/SAT prep and Derek makes concepts easy to understand for my son. I recommend him highly.
