About Peter

I majored in history at Yale College and I obtained a master's degree in strategic studies, involving a deep understanding of European history, at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. I maintain a keen knowledge of the subject by constant reading.

I have several years of experience in teaching a wide range of students in different disciplines. I have worked with a professional Chinese journalist, improving her reading and writing through close reading of The Economist and The New York Times. I have also worked with Puerto Rican and Dominican-American primary and middle school school students in English comprehension and math, and with a Dominican high school student who wanted to improve her reading comprehension.

I spent several decades as a daily reporter and editor. The discipline of writing quickly and accurately, and of improving other people's writing, gives me a unique ability to understand the mechanics of clear writing. My ESL/ESOL skills come from experience in working with foreign students of all ages. My qualifications in English stem from a life of reading literature.

I am fluent in Spanish, having been raised in Mexico and Spain and having worked as a reporter in Central America for nearly five years.

Besides knowledge and teaching ability, a good tutor must be approachable. I encourage prospective students to ask as many questions about me as they wish, so they can determine if the fit feels right.
