My name is Peter and I want to be your next tutor.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences with a physics education concentration. I student taught at Ralston Valley High School where I taught Physics and Earth Science. Upon graduation I received a secondary science education teaching certificate and I am a certified AVID tutor. During my student teaching I realized that I preferred a one on one or one on two teaching scenario as opposed to the traditional classroom.
I have been tutoring Calculus 1/AB, Physics and Chemistry for 6 years now and I love it. I am also able to tutor other math and science classes both high school and college. I am enthusiastic about math and science and I cannot wait to be your math or science tutor. I am a visual learner so If I can see or visualize it I tend to learn better, so that is also how I teach! I do my best to explain things using visuals: pictures or graphs. I also like structure so I try my best to do step by step processes and I make sure the student understands before moving on. I hope this helps you choose the best tutor for yourself or your student!

Very patient!

I had a difficult assignment in Algebra, and he broke down the difference between point slope and slope intercept so that I had a more precise understanding. I will use him in the future.

Lisa, 2 lessons with Peter

great session

Peter was very patient and explained things in a way I could easily understand! Will definitely use him again in the future!

Jason, 1 lesson with Peter

very helpful

My son felt that in just 2 tutoring sessions with Peter he was starting to understand the calculus that has had him confused since the beginning of school.

Connor, 2 lessons with Peter

Very Positive Results

We were very happy with the help our daughter received during her tutoring in Chemistry and Algebra. Peter was always on time and my daughter's grades improved. I highly recommend him.

Melanie, 7 lessons with Peter

Very helpful!

My student has had two sessions with Peter so far and is finding the time so helpful. One specific thing she mentioned is that he helps her see the big picture, which then enables her to understand the smaller concepts.

Joan, 11 lessons with Peter

A Great Experience thus far

Peter is very thorough and extremely patient with me. At 41 it's not easy to be working with a tutor to begin with but he keeps the scene comfortable and I'm greatly appreciative to have his help. I'm so glad that I found him. It was the math class that kept me from getting my Associates at ACC but now I know I will get my Bachelor's from UCD and be able to go onto graduate school. I really don't know how I will be able to repay him. Thank You so much Peter!

Peter was so helpful!

Peter was really patient and made sure I understood the concepts before we moved on. He walked me through every problem and helped me raise my grade in chemistry. Really great tutor!
