Information About Darrol
This is how 3 referees rated Darrol:
I am a certified secondary school teacher and have taught Chemistry 11, Chemistry 12, and Science in British Columbia secondary schools for 35 years.
After retiring from a very fulfilling career in the classroom, I decided I wanted to utilize my experience and thorough knowledge of secondary school level chemistry to continue helping students.
I have tutored chemistry both person-to-person in the area I live (Okanagan Valley in BC) and extensively online for 8 years and I absolutely love it.
I have taught chemistry and science in secondary schools including McBride Secondary School (3 years) and Summerland Secondary School (32 years).
I have tutored chemistry and general science both person-to-person and online for the last 8 years and continue to do so.
I create educational videos for the BC Learning Network for use in their online courses.
I mark and do some consulting for Southern Central Interior Distance Education School (SCIDES) for 3 years.
I worked for several years doing content development for Castle Rock Research Company based in Edmonton, Alberta.
To me, tutoring is all about helping students understand concepts in a way that is relevant to them and enabling them to realize their full potential. With all my students I quickly get to know what kind of help they need, their particular learning styles, and exactly what I can do to help them best. I am very patient and understanding. I think it is very important to establish a good rapport with students and provide an comfortable atmosphere to learn.

Thank you so much for your review! This really means a lot to me! I look forward to all the sessions I will have with you. You are a fantastic person to work with.
In addition to my daughters comments above I need to say that I, as a father, am so happy that we found Darrol at First Tutors. My daughter, a bright young high school student, struggled in her Chem 12 class, a concerned parent we wanted to find some sort of a tutor, I'm happy to say we found it on the internet, wow so impressed and relieved. Right off the bat Darrol made it extremely easy for my daughter, he was technically sound, he had simple instructions on how to teach and was a great communicator. Before we knew it she was learning 1 on 1, her Chem 12 mark went from a C to an A. If your a concerned parent, let me set you a ease and offer up Darrol as a Tutor, if you hire him all your worries will go away.
I really enjoyed working with you, Emmaline! You are an amazing student and I'm so glad I was able to help you.
All my best to you in your future education.
Thank you so much for the comments. I truly appreciate them. I really enjoyed working with your son and also enjoyed my conversations with you. He is truly lucky to have such a supportive mom! Have a great summer and keep in touch if your son needs help with Grade 12 chemistry in the upcoming school year.
