About Pete

My background is in science, and for many years I did doctoral and postdoctoral work in biological sciences. But then came 1993, and I had an epiphany that the web was going to be the biggest thing in my lifetime. So, I jumped to a new career, building my first web page in 1994. Since 2001, I have been an instructor in web and interactive design at the Art Institutes. I've taught basic graphic design, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and basic to advanced user experience and interaction design. Advanced students learn server-side programming in languages like PHP. I also teach digital marketing and related fields to advertising students.

I really enjoy teaching, and my favorite part is working with non-traditional students who want to get into the world of web design, development and digital marketing. I feel that mentoring online is part of the future of education, plan to give my students the best part of my experience and expertise in this new medium.

Basic Photoshop, also becoming familiar with Adobe Creative Suite - a core skills for User Experience, Web Design, and Web Development.

I wrote my first HTML in 1993, and have taught both web design, Ux, and web development since 2001 to thousands of students in a classroom setting.

My style isn't for everyone - I'm goal-oriented with students and expect the best from them as well as myself. Please contact me if you're interested, and we can see if its a match for what you need to learn!

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.
