Environmental Science 4th year Student at PSU, Algebra, Pre-calc, to Persuasive Writing, I am the Tutor here to Help you actually LEARN.

Methodology

I prefer to adjust my tutoring based on each individual I help. Math is only as hard as the teacher is BAD. Anyone can pass college Algebra (MTH 111) and Algebra is my 2nd language. I prefer to show and aid students in discovering the language of the Universe and teach WHY Algebra, Geometry and Pre-Calc are so important and applicable in the real world if you look around. Nature is Numbers. My passion and drive is to help discover and uncover the patterns and equations that move the world around us. And as an environmental science major, I have biology, geography, geology, and chemistry knowledge, along with sustainability practices. I earned my Associates degree from Clackamas Community College, graduating with honors with a 3.7 GPA. I kept it above 3.5 throughout my college career. I am finishing my final year at Portland State for Environmental Science, with hope that we can bring sustainability to the mainstream.

Background

I am an environmental science major at PSU, and Algebra has always been a subject I can teach you to understand, all the way to Pre-Calc. A Maths nerd sense childhood, with a love of nature and all its design.

Derek's resume

AAOT - Clackamas Community College, 3.7 GPA. Transferred to Portland State to major in Environmental Science and Community Development. I was a math tutor and note taker all through my nearly 4 years of school. I finished Calculus 1 and 2, Stats 1 and 2, and all the prerequisites before them. I also dual studied Community Development and Sustainability. Math is not hard to learn, it's hard to find good math teachers.
