Berkeley High Math & Physics Tutor (in-person & virtual)
Hello Berkeley Parents Network,
I'm Derrek Coleman, a Cal Physics/Education graduate and classroom teacher for the past five years. I believe the best teachers respect their student's individuality and focus on their strengths. Students thrive when they trust and connect with a teacher that makes them feel intellectually safe. Patience, humor, and developing academic confidence are the cornerstones of my practice.
I have some availability for tutoring this quarter, so I'm opening my schedule to offer one-on-one support to a few students. While I love teaching all math and science subjects, I specialize in AP Calculus (AB/BC) and AP Physics (1/2).
I offer both virtual and in-person tutoring if you have a safe backyard or other accommodation.
If you think your child would benefit from one-on-one support, please contact me today to learn more and see if my talents are a good fit for your child's needs.
Happy new year,
B.A. Physics, UC Berkeley (2014)
