Derek was an absolute pleasure to work with as I made arrangements with him be my son’s tutor for Honors Chemistry. Derek’s professionalism and ability to connect with my son was beyond any expectations I could’ve dreamed of. Immediately, after the first session, my son couldn’t wait to book another one. Derek has a way of not only explaining the work but he also encourages his student to truly think through the concept being discussed. He wants to ensure that his student has a full understanding of the subject. As a parent, I was so impressed with Derek’s dependability and flexibility to meet my son’s schedule. My son’s test scores improved immediately after our tutoring sessions began. I know that without Derek, my son wouldn’t have passed the class. Frequently, I listened in and would be amazed at Derek’s knowledge of the subject. I truly couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of my son’s final grade and we were both in agreement, that it had everything to do with Derek’s tutoring. I would highly recommend Derek to be your tutor and again, cannot say enough about his passion towards seeing you succeed.
