About Peter


Bio

I'm a passionate, world traveling, nerd who loves to meet new people, create new things, and teach others what I know. These tendencies have given me ample opportunity to learn about mechanical engineering and computer programming, and the ability to creatively identify and solve problems. Additionally, my time spent working in Italy gave let me learn the language first hand.

While I have not done much tutoring in the past, I have always taken it upon myself to mentor new-comers to jobs...

I'm a passionate, world traveling, nerd who loves to meet new people, create new things, and teach others what I know. These tendencies have given me ample opportunity to learn about mechanical engineering and computer programming, and the ability to creatively identify and solve problems. Additionally, my time spent working in Italy gave let me learn the language first hand.

While I have not done much tutoring in the past, I have always taken it upon myself to mentor new-comers to jobs and to teach them how to succeed in the workplace. I find great joy in helping others learn new skills, and seeing them succeed. Hopefully I'll get that through my Wyzant experience as well!

I have both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in engineering, and have spent ten years working in research and development. My experience includes organizations like the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the European Academy. In all of my roles I have thrived on teaching others everything that I know, and especially in helping new-comers get up to speed.

In addition to learning the standard topics of Italian such as vocabulary and grammar I spent 2015 living in Bolzano, Italy. This gave me lots of experience speaking the language with native speakers, and many opportunities to learn about the sometimes hidden meanings of the language.

Computer programming is becoming a key part of any scientific research career, with Python currently being the language of choice. I take great jot in being inventive when programming, and have come to specialize in writing programs that automate data analysis, thus saving tons of time and avoiding lots of tedious spreadsheet work. I've even started a blog and separate business, www.1000x-Faster.com/blog, teaching people what I know.

I'm open to any and all inquiries about tutoring! Feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.
