About Peter


Bio

As a retired Physics Ph.D. from the University of California (SD), I've been tutoring math and physics for over 3 years. My AP Math and Physics students regularly score 5 in SAT AP tests or in the top 5% tiles! I enjoy seeing students' eyes lighting up when I show them how to work out succinct and clear solutions for deep learning. For over 10 years at community college, I taught calculus, statistics, algebra, business mathematics, engineering mechanics, physics and lab classes to evening...

As a retired Physics Ph.D. from the University of California (SD), I've been tutoring math and physics for over 3 years. My AP Math and Physics students regularly score 5 in SAT AP tests or in the top 5% tiles! I enjoy seeing students' eyes lighting up when I show them how to work out succinct and clear solutions for deep learning. For over 10 years at community college, I taught calculus, statistics, algebra, business mathematics, engineering mechanics, physics and lab classes to evening and summer students, receiving many high reviews and with a higher student enrollment among the same concurrent classes. My goal is to help students improving GPA, establishing good study habit, and cultivating problem solving skills.

Can't resist solving good Kakuro, KenKen, Sudoku puzzles and have my own published Sudoku mobile apps in iTunes store and Android markets (Google, Amazon, NOOK) since 2009. Always ready to learn and expand technical know-hows to stay current with latest technological needs and challenges so I can better broaden students' horizon and prepare their journey ahead. My decades' programming experience ranges progressively from Fortran, C/C++, Java to Python in scientific computing.

I tutor students at public places such as SF Public Library study rooms or coffee shops. In-home tutoring option is available only after several tutoring sessions. Please feel free to reach out for questions.

Peter L: Superlative Tutor in All Regards!

Outstanding knowledge of Python, Physics, and calculus at a post doctoral level. Just brilliant and meticulous. Enjoyed all the interactions. Pleasure to work with.

Mike, 3 lessons with Peter

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor

Peter taught me how to do medium Sudoku with a great deal of enthusiasm. He was very knowledgeable and made me feel that it is not hard (though I had been really struggling with it before). The day after his lesson, I solved a hard Sudoku for the first time ever on my own!

Python tutor

Peter is teaching my son how to trouble shoot to solve Python assignments (Coursera Univ of Michigan Python for Everyone). Peter has an impressive command of Python and is teaching my son methods for creating short cuts and increasing visibility so as to identify coding errors. Peter is accessible and eager to help!

Amazing tutor

Python data science content. This time we worked on apis, learning about the json library, and also using panads data frames. Patient and always there to help. Seriously the best tutor!

Jaylene, 5 lessons with Peter

Excellent tutor who is patient and knowledgeable

Peter is an excellent tutor who is patient and knowledgeable with coding. Besides being patient and accommodating, Peter is also quick to respond to his students' questions. He went beyond and above the call of duty in helping me with my class assignment with Phyton. My intention is to continue to work with him in the future when I need assistance with navigating complicated coding issues since he has been very helpful thus far.
