I absolutely love helping people understand math better. I have been tutoring math since my sophomore year at Virginia Tech--eons ago.

I have been a 'numbers person' all my life. I enjoyed math as a kid. I majored in electrical engineering in college. I enjoyed tutoring college math, engineering, and calculus during my days at Virginia Tech. After graduation, I worked as an engineer for a few years before returning to school. Some of my favorite moments were in helping high school students i...
When I asked my daughter how her session with Derek went, she replied, "I love him!" A pretty strong endorsement. Derek helped my daughter with a project for her Honors Geometry/Trig class. She commented that he made the lesson fun and wants to use him again next time she needs help with math. Thank you, Derek.

So far after 2 lessons Adam has come away understanding a bit more. We are adding an additional day per week to hopefully work on Chemistry a bit too. Can't wait to see how it progresses.

derek really helped me understand precalculus & was very understanding when i had to cancel one time when i was sick. he helped me cover a lot of material within a short window of time. i liked doing a combo of online and in person lessons. he has a very good approach working with students who are not stem majors or math-minded. he is very easy going and funny which makes the lessons fun. if i had to recommend one tutor to anyone it would be derek!!

Mr. Derek is the best with precalculus and trig, he helped my daughter with her math to better understand it, I would highly recommend him for precalculus and trig. He also helped my oldest daughter with her college math, he's amazing, very knowledgeable something that is rare with most of the tutors I came across. He is also patient, he wants to make sure the student understands it. He's the best tutor we ever had. We plan to continue using him for my youngest when she starts college.

Derek is a great tutor! My son has been using him for his AP Calculus and Physics class. We have used Derek many times and will continue using his services! My son has his AP exams coming up and I am hopeful he will score very high with Derek's help!

Derek is helping me with calculus 2. He knows the topic well and is open to any questions you might have. He is able to explain the ideas behind the math and is more than willing to have you succeed

Derek provided tutoring for my physics class. He?s very good at simplifying concepts and meeting students where they are. Highly recommend!! Derek is flexible in arranging tutoring sessions - a big plus.

Derek was patient and took all the time needed to help our son understand the complex process of precalculs. He has a great personality and put our son at ease with asking questions. Our son's grade improved by 14 points and a full letter grade. Derek's schedule was always flexible. I highly recommend him.
- Shannon T. from Mebane, NC
This was our first session for our son. Our son was very comfortable and felt the session was very beneficial. Derek found a common denominator quickly to build a relationship upon (baseball), and that was very important as my son will not put forth effort if a relationship does not exist. Very pleased and will schedule regular sessions going forward.

Derek has been tutoring me in calculus for a few weeks now, and without him I would not be passing this class, much less making an A. He is very knowledgeable in this subject, and he is very patient. He is also very accommodating and tries to work around my schedule as much as possible. If your looking for a tutor, I would highly recommend Derek!
- Heather G. from Asheboro, NC
Derek's approach to Calculus is great. No judgement. Strengthened what was already known and explained in depth with patience what needed reinforcement. EXCELLENT TUTOR!
- Tatiana A. from Kernersville, NC
Taught Energy and Work for AP Physics C. Helped understand some major aspects of solving equations and help logically figure out the solution to the problem. He helped logically think through the problem set I had to do.
- Marie N. from Carlsbad, CA
My son met with Derek and felt very comfortable. His session was great. We are looking forward to a successful year. My son has used other tutors and always gets discouraged.
- Teronda M. from Greensboro, NC
Derek did a good job with my son who was reluctant to have a tutor at tall. Derek knew how to approach my son and help him see it was up to him, but would be beneficial for him. With the one other tutor my son had, he was very upset. My son was calm after Derek left and could see how this would help him...Thanks, Derek!
- Dawn T. from High Point, NC
Derek is a great, down to earth teacher who is great at taking complex math theory and explaining it in everyday context. I'm working on business math derivatives and logarithemic functions and he made it seem easy. Very helpful!
- Joshua S. from San Diego, CA
Derek in working with my granddaughter helped her identify where she had been making mistakes and increased her understanding of how she needed to apply what she knew to what was being asked.
- Meredith L. from Gaithersburg, MD
Derek is a great tutor. He goes very in depth to make sure you learn the material. He?s very patient, which helps in my case since I struggle with my subject so that helps a great deal.
- Ashlyn L. from Graham, NC
Derek helped my son with ACT math prep. Great instruction/explanation skills and good sense of humor. My son learned quite a lot while having a good time. Tutoring sessions don't have to be painful! Derek analyzed my Son's strengths and weaknesses and helped with problem areas while giving him confidence in his abilities to figure things out. I would highly recommend Derek.
- Anne marie D. from Jamestown, NC
Derek, was son felt relieved and confident after this session. He took Nicky through his homework step by step. The online tutoring is amazing because Nicky was stuck with his homework and Derek responded withing the hour.
- Christina V. from Bronx, NY
Derek finally helped my daughter to understand her physics as no tutor or teacher at school has been able. She was so grateful and so are we!
