Hello! I am an experienced professional engineer graduated from Purdue University with an Aerospace Engineering Master's degree. My research area is in fluid mechanics. My subject strengths include math and physics. I can teach these subject from any level up to and including AP classes. I have experience teaching high school and college level students, but enjoy working with any age group. I am the recipient of Magoon Award for Excellent Teaching where I was assigned to teach dynamics course for junior engineering classes at Purdue University. My teaching philosophy focuses on understanding and building on the fundamentals of a subject in order to apply or relate them to the complicated parts of that subject. I feel this method provides confidence in the material and relies less on memorization. I look forward to working with you!

Thanks,

- Peter

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.

Algebra 1

The main goal of Algebra 1 subject is to provide students with a thorough and extensive study of linear and quadratic functions and graphing on the xy-coordinate system. By the end of this course, students will have all the knowledge necessary to solve and graph equations and inequalities. They will also be able to apply this knowledge to other areas of math, such as word problems, ratios and proportions.

The course typically starts off with a quick review of basic algebraic concepts, such as variables, order of operations, exponents and problem solving skills. They will gain a thorough introduction to functions, the basis of all of algebra and higher mathematics, such as calculus. Students will learn how to solve linear equations, including multistep equations, equations with multiple variables and equations involving decimals, as well as write a linear equation based on the graph of a line. The Algebra 1 course also gives the students a thorough introduction of functions and quadratic equations. They will learn all the operations associated with the two, such as factoring and graphing. The end of the course takes the students’ knowledge of algebra 1 one step further by introducing them to some basic concepts of geometry.
