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

Algebra 1

Algebra 1, or Integrated Algebra is the study of solving equations for an unknown value. It also includes some coordinate geometry, statistics and some basic trigonometry. The New York State Integrated Algebra Exam is not an especially difficult test but it does cover a fair amount of material.

Algebra 2

Covered by the NY State Algebra 2 / Trigonometry Regents. This course goes well beyond the math the student has encountered previously. Topics such as Logarithms, Binomial Probability, and Complex Numbers are some of hurdles students face before they even face trigonometry.

Geometry

Geometry is often a very difficult subject for students because it seems to be such a dramatic shift from the math they have learned previously. Learning Geometry is, however, a very important step in the development of a student's mathematical ability. Geometry teaches mental discipline and planning, two very useful skills. Students are often thrown by the idea of proofs, which is approximately half of the curriculum in Geometry. Unfortunately, many math teachers are not all that happy about teaching proofs and so the student does not really learn the techniques that make solving proofs, and by extension, solving complex mathematics problems, easier. I believe that Geometry is an excellent teacher.

SAT Math

SAT Math is a peculiar subject. The math itself is not all that difficult. Most high school students have already been exposed to all of the math covered in the SAT. The difficulty comes from 2 sources, time limits and the unusual form in which the questions are posed. One of the keys to excelling on the SAT is getting comfortable with the way Math topics are tested, and knowing how to approach the different questions. In school math, the way in which you arrive at an answer is often as important, indeed it is often more important, than the answer itself. This is not so on the SAT, all that matters is getting the right answer, so the student should learn strategies to answer different types of questions.

Trigonometry

Covered by the NY State Algebra 2 / Trigonometry Regents. This course goes well beyond the math the student has encountered previously. Topics such as Logarithms, Binomial Probability, and Complex Numbers are some of hurdles students face before they even face trigonometry. The student will also need to do trigonometry of non-right triangles, the unit circle, and other trig topics.

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.
