My goal is to deliver classes structured to the learning style of the student, challenging him/her through a fun conversational learning environment. I love to utilize a variety of drills and exercises to get you accustomed to actually using the language. All students will practice structure, grammar,conjugation and core fundamentals and the content that will be learned will be based on your personal and professional needs, focusing on what is necessary for you and your particular strengths and weaknesses.
Derek loves to travel frequently, cook, practice Brazilian jiu-jitsu, ride his mountain bike, and spend time with his loved ones.
