I have enjoyed tutoring since I was in high school, when I was in the tutoring squad. I became a teacher with New York certification in Spanish. In seven years I have taught Spanish to students in college, special education, and honors programs. I believe that the teacher must understand the student's talents and needs and adjust instruction in as personalized way as possible. My favorite part of teaching was always the individualized and personalized interaction with different students in a way that incorporated their personalities and learning styles with a variety of materials and presentations. I have left the classroom and have begun pursuing theology, but I still love tutoring and languages. I prefer the one-on-one individualized attention over the classroom dynamic, but the classroom has really helped me to understand how diverse the phenomenon of learning is. I love learning new things, as well. I have finished my PhD coursework in Hispanic linguistics. I have enjoyed tutoring since I was in high school, when I was in the tutoring squad.

Our son just got his best grade in Spanish this year. He had been struggling in this one subject. I find Peter to be a good fit for our son. Our son's school is a tough place but he is finally getting caught up. I think Peter is doing a very good job and I recommend other families in West Roxbury, Roslindale, Jamica Plain, etc to use him.
Thank you for the kind words, and congratulations! It is a pleasure to work with this young man.
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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have graded many papers and have been a proofreader for a pharmaceutical company, and so I can help with grammar, spelling, consistency, and detail-oriented looks at papers. I can offer some strategies for comparing proofs as well.
