Hi, my name is Peter.

I'm a substitute teacher active in several districts in the area, with extensive experience in math and science, and a bit of history and English as well. I went to UC Davis where I received a degree in geophysics with a minor in hydrology. I am a credentialed science teacher, with certifications in Earth Science and Chemistry.

I'm very patient, well informed, and I'd like to think I go the extra step to help you learn what you need to learn. I'll break down concepts step by step for you, help you with vocabulary, and teach you the material as a system you can understand and visualize, rather than a collection of facts in a book.

Please contact me for a thorough tutoring session, you won't be disappointed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

I have a teaching credential and I have years of experience with tutoring. I know how to teach students the essentials of note-taking, time management, pre-reading a text to get the most out of it, how to prepare for tests, and how to maximize test scores when being tested in various subjects.

As a teacher I know how to present information to students and I can show them how to correctly interpret and process the information they get for maximum effect.

Trombone

I have been playing trombone since I was eight. I played in statewide concert bands, university level groups, and I have traveled internationally to play trombone. I am qualified to teach beginning and intermediate technique, and can answer further questions about my ability as needed.
