All of Peter’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Peter’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Chemistry

I took one year of inorganic chemistry, one year of organic chemistry and one year of biochemistry (all with labs) as an undergrad at Tufts. I also took one semester of physical chemistry. In graduate school, I took a course in chemical oceanography and a course in physical biochemistry. I am certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to teach chemistry at the secondary level and I have taught high school chemistry (college prep and honors) for three years. I also have five years of experience tutoring students taking college prep, honors and AP chemistry classes.

I have a patient tutoring style and I try to help build my students' confidence as I work with them. I have worked with a variety of students who attend or who have attended both public and independent schools. I like tutoring because I can tailor my teaching to the needs of each individual student. I try to reduce any stress or anxiety than students might feel regarding chemistry and I help them to be successful.

Genetics

I got an A in Genetics as an undergraduate at Tufts University and graduated magna cum laude from Tufts with a BS in Biology. I went on to get my PhD in Microbiology and Molecular Biology from Tufts Medical School where I studied bacterial genetics and molecular genetics. I then worked as a research scientist in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School for two years before I was appointed Instructor in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Harvard Medical School. I spent nine years in the HMS Micro Department where I established and directed the Department's DNA Core Facility. I also have three years of experience teaching science at the secondary level. I am certified to teach high school biology and chemistry and am rated a Highly Qualified Teacher. I have a patient tutoring style and can explain concepts in multiple ways. The best part of tutoring for me is when I see the look on a student's face that shows they "get it."

Microbiology

I have my PhD in Microbiology and Molecular Biology from Tufts Medical School and I have successfully tutored undergraduates in Microbiology. I am a former Instructor in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Harvard Medical School and I taught science at the secondary level for three years. I am certified to teach high school biology and chemistry and am rated a Highly Qualified Teacher. I graduated magna cum laude from Tufts with a BS in Biology. I have a patient tutoring style and can explain concepts in multiple ways. The best part of tutoring for me is when I see the look on a student's face that shows they "get it."

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
