About Peter

I have taught University level Chemistry for twenty-eight years, first at UCSC and then at San Jose State University (SJSU). I have retired from teaching at SJSU this past August, but I would like to continue to teach closer to home both to stay involved in a profession I love and to supplement my pension with sufficient income to ensure the economic welfare of my family. Although my main area of expertise is Biochemistry, I have taught a wide variety of courses in other areas of the field including introductory chemistry and organic chemistry.

I can also teach a variety of topics in mathematics including algebra (all levels), precalculus and geometry; I have a modicum of expertise in differentiation, integration and approaches to the solution of differential equations.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Since I've used algebra as a tool in my profession on a continuous basis for the duration of my career, I have a great deal of expertise in the subject. I used this expertise to help my daughter (who is currently starting her second year at Clark University) through algebra in secondary school. I focus on developing understanding and problem solving skills when I work with my students.
