About Peter

I’m Peter! I graduated from The College of the Holy Cross in 2014 with a Bachelor’s in math. I absolutely love math and helping others to enjoy it also! I try to impart my enthusiasm on my students so that math isn’t so intimidating for them, but rather a fun challenge. I also try to not make the lessons so serious and incorporate some humanity and humor, rather than just be an authority figure.

I usually introduce a lesson with some instruction and why it’s a useful skill to have. Generally, I’ll go over an example or two and then have the student work some out on his or her own, giving one example that goes a bit beyond the “together” examples. This way it gets the Student thinking on his or her own and solving the problem his/herself, boosting confidence. I’ve found that boosting confidence in math has been the number one contributor to better understanding it, so I try to get students to feel better about math.

I’ve taught at a few high schools in DC (and currently do so) as well as private tutoring for clients. I also graduated with a math degree and continue to hone my math skills while I’m getting an engineering degree.

I’m so excited to help make math more enjoyable and less intimidating for you, and I hope through my tutoring you can learn to have fun while doing it. Looking forward to hearing from you!
