About Peter

I am a Massachusetts certified chemistry and math teacher. and have taught high school chemistry, both honors and college prep. In addition to teaching chemistry, I have taught high school physical sciences, general engineering, MCAS biology tutoring; and laboratory sections of college geology courses. I have a strong background in math and sciences.

I graduated from Dartmouth College with an A.B. in Earth Sciences, and from University of Illinois with an M.S. in Geology.

I realize that chemistry can be difficult for many high school students. Often students are often confused by the notes in class and the text, and need to hear the subject matter in a one-on-one or small group environment. In addition to being familiar with the general chemistry curriculum, I am also familiar with many of the laboratory exercises performed in the class. I have found that students often have difficulties with understanding the teachers expectations, and how to apply what they have covered in class into the lab report.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I hold a Massachusetts educator's license to teach both high school math (grades 8-12), including Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I am certified to teach high school math in Massachusetts. I passed the test with a score of 95 with a minimum permissible score of 70. While I have not taught math, I have 4+ years experience teaching high school chemistry. Chemistry includes a lot of math including: dimensional analysis, algebra, and geometry. If I could attach my math certification test score, I would. I scored in the highest grouping all categories, including.

I would like this request to apply to prealgebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry, precalculus, SAT Math, and ACT Math.
