Background Check Status for Peter A.

You, the student, are the most important person in any learning environment. If you have not learned, then teaching has not taken place. Because of this, my teaching style includes two-way communication. Rather than lecturing what I know in a mathematical topic, I learn your communication style and adapt to that.

While procedures can be taught to the degree that a student is able to produce correct answers, an intuitive and concept-based approach helps them to combine new ideas with older familiar ones.

I have more than 10 years of experience assisting people with math: over the phone, face-to-face, and in online classroom settings. One of my greatest joys is the privilege of participating in the success of individual students.

My tutoring style is marked by clear communication, patience, a love for math, and a genuine interest in my students. I look forward to the opportunity to participate in your success.

In addition to my Bible training, I have extensive experience in on-on-one tutoring, Bible-study leadership, expository Bible study articles and public speaking.

My knowledge of the Bible is deepened by the fact that I have read it through approximately ten times.
