About Peter Kelly


Bio

I'm currently completing my requirements for a single subject CA Teaching Credential in Mathematics, to teach Calculus and other advanced math at the high school and college levels. I've tutored dozens of students in all levels of Math, most sciences, and the other fundamental academic subjects. The former are my specialties; however, I also enjoy tutoring German Language & Literature, Violin, Viola, and Music Theory.

I'm currently completing my requirements for a single subject CA Teaching Credential in Mathematics, to teach Calculus and other advanced math at the high school and college levels. I've tutored dozens of students in all levels of Math, most sciences, and the other fundamental academic subjects. The former are my specialties; however, I also enjoy tutoring German Language & Literature, Violin, Viola, and Music Theory.

My teaching style centers around a balanced set of principles, holistically emphasizing academic understanding, personal level of interest, drive or motivation to learn a subject, and personal learning style (visual, abstract, academic, real-world, etc.). I've always seen success with any of my pupils in possession of at least a moderate desire to understand their subject and a willingness to slow down, take a breath, and open up to the possibility that most given areas of study are seldom as difficult as one may fear them to be.

I pride myself on professionalism, academic knowledge, a modest sense of humor and an ability to make most any subject of study "do-able" to any interested pupil. I look forward to helping you achieve a functional (if not superior) understanding of any subject with which you may be struggling. You can do it; I know you can!

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I've been working with linear Algebra since 1994. The only thing that's changed since then, is the status of Fermat's Theorem! I've shadowed and otherwise worked closely with Professor Z, the Math Dept Head for the San Bernardino Community College district. Linear Algebra is a way to apply new tools and perspectives to most of the popular maths, sciences, and even language.

Violin

I have played the violin since 1982 as a student and since 2001 professionally. I currently play baroque music with the Ad Hoc Consort in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, renaissance and medieval music with the Danse Macabre in Irwindale, CA, and gypsy violin with Gallows Humor at various faires, lounges and other venues. My knowledge and experience in music theory and applications are sufficient to tutor beginning and intermediate students of the violin and viola, among other instruments.

Successful Photoshop Tutoring Session

Peter was able to help me with some very specific questions / tasks that I had in Adobe Photoshop. He was friendly and knowledgeable, and had good communication regarding our appointment. Session was at my home, and I felt comfortable using my home as the location for the session. Will definitely be using Peter again!

Suzette, 2 lessons with Peter Kelly

Great tutor.

Great tutor. I wish my daughter's high school teachers could have this kind of impact on her. With Peter she is retaining the material studied. Came in on short notice without hesitation to help prepare for an important exam. A real privilege to have him in my daughter's corner.

Pam, 40 lessons with Peter Kelly

Very student orientated.

My son has had about six lessons and his teacher has seen positive improvements. I like how he teaches multiple ways of completing problems.

Erin, 48 lessons with Peter Kelly

Improvement already

My granddaughter sounds better on the violin after only two lessons. She had been taking lessons through the school district, but her progress was much slower. Peter is very patient with her, and very encouraging.
