Description

Initially trained in environmental engineering, I made the switch to teaching after spending two years as a volunteer teacher abroad. From there, I went on to earn my Masters in Teaching at Seattle University and to teach at public and private schools for the last 10+ years. I've tutored elementary students for whom English is a second language in math, tutored calculus, taught geometry and algebra, high school physics, and introduced a new curriculum to my high school for the honors chemistry class, which I also taught.

I'm a big fan of learning by inquiry (especially for science and geometry), which involves trying something out and exploring it a bit, then processing what you experienced through conversation and critical thinking. I understand that not every student is looking for this, though, so if you're just looking to get through tonight's homework or prepare for a test, I'm there for you, too!

Though I prefer to work in person, since starting social distancing, I've had to rethink how I meet with students. I now have a document camera and whiteboard, and I'm available to meet over Skype, Google hangouts, or Zoom, at least until things open up enough to actually start getting together again. In person, I usually charged $40/hour, which excluded commute time, but as I'm now working from home, I'm only charging $35/hour. Please feel free to contact me by email (ballingd@gmail.com) or at (403) 458-0454 to discuss what might work for you. I look forward to meeting you! -Derek B.-
