Hello prospective students, parents, friends, and family,
I want to give you an idea of what I do and what I am about. I teach full time at a high school in Reisterstown, Maryland. I teach 3D computer animation and digital photography. I have been teaching for over 6 years and have worked with computer graphics for over 10 years. I can teach for the most part traditional drawing, calligraphy, photo and video editing, 3D computer animation, and special effects. I have taught children, teens, and adults in the use of computer graphics technology and multimedia. I am certified by the state of Maryland to teach art and have spent the last three years teaching in special education. As mentioned above I currently work as high school teacher and have passed all criminal background checks.
I also studied Japanese extensively while in college and participated in a Japanese Speaking Immersion group. I also taught a Japanese immersion camp at AACC where I helped children learn and gain an appreciation for the Japanese language and culture by creating, illustrating, and translating an original story into Japanese. I tutor Japanese at $45 per hour.
I am excited about what I know and about what I do which is helping people to learn digital multimedia to where they can continue to learn and eventually be able to teach others.
If you are interested please contact me through WyzAnt email with a specific description of your project ideas and please send attachments of some photos that you would like to edit in Photoshop. I will not be able to begin tutoring unless I have these. Please also be aware that I teach children by profession and that I WILL NOT TUTOR and help edit images that I would not help my own students edit in class. These include images with any kind of nudity or indecent exposure, obscenity, or any images that I believe to be inappropriate. This is for my personal and professional protection.
I hope I can be of help to many of you.

I am experienced with making accommodations from different learning styles along with modifying curriculum in order to help students with individual needs have access to the curriculum. I worked as an academic adviser during my time at Chelsea School in which I personally advocated for and helped my advisees with study skill methods and techniques in order to help them make academic achievements in their classes and to increase their overall confidence in learning. I am Maryland State Department of Education certified in Special Education from grades 7 through adult.

I believe that I am able to help you with any image editing need that you have. I understand the importance of key components in digital art creation such as correct resolution, file formats, image compression, memory, and printing. What I offer is over a decade of hands-on experience with Photoshop and over 6 years of live, full time, in class room experience. I know what I am doing and I know how to effectively work one on one with my students in order to help them reach their goals and their potential.

I have personally studied and taught the principles of design in both my computer graphics and in my photography classes.

Through academic research I investigate and discover the ways in which these principles were employed throughout various art movements as well as in the modern and commercial art movements today.

It is my desire to teach and to tutor elementary math using learning methods and study skills strategies that I have learned through my graduate program in education and from my experience teaching in the classroom. Using the student's learning style as a reference, it is my goal to begin to help break down larger goals into more manageable and accessible parts in order to experience academic achievement one step at a time.
It is my desire to teach and to tutor English using learning methods and study skills strategies that I have learned through my graduate program in education and from my experience teaching in the classroom.

Great Tutor!!! — Peter is absolutely amazing! Prior to our first lesson, he asked me what I am hoping to learn and what my learning style is. When he asked me those questions, I knew the lesson was going to be fruitful. He came to the lesson with an outline of what we were to accomplish and a notes section. Not only did we cover everything on the lesson plan, but we had time to talk about additional topics ...
