Derek has 12+ years of experience tutoring mathematics.  Subjects he has tutored range from as young as 3rd grade common core through Calculus II including test prep for SAT, ACT, and GRE math.  Having graduated from UC Davis with a B.A. in Economics, Derek brings a unique point of view as a tutor as he gives students an emphasis on relatable uses of math not normally taught in an everyday mathematics classroom.  He has a passion for teaching which partly comes from having been brought up in a family of teachers and which also partly comes from him wanting to help his students.
