About Peter

Hey there!

My name is Peter. In May of 2012 I graduated summa cum laude from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD with a B.A. in English (concentration in creative writing) and a minor in anthropology.

While attending Goucher I worked for three years in the Goucher College writing center, a unique on-campus tutoring center where students met one on one with tutors to receive assistance with their writing assignments. In this capacity as a tutor I helped students with writing, editing, research, outlining, bibliographic citations, etc. Overall, it was a wonderful experience for an undergraduate student like myself that instilled in me a penchant for meticulously well-written and edited work.

This experience as a writing center tutor also taught me that the best way to tutor someone is to take a direct and individualized approach. We all learn differently and at our own pace, and the most humanistic and effective way in which to instruct someone, whether in the basics of the English language, the complexities of an essay on English literature or in anthropological theory, is to personalize the tutoring session to the learning style of the individual.

After graduating from Goucher College I received a creative writing grant that enabled me to travel throughout Southeast Asia for three months, ultimately resulting in the creation of a collection of prose and poetry. I have published widely in prose, poetry, journalism and academic research papers.

Currently, I have applied to Fall 2013 PhD programs in English Literature, including top-tier research schools like UC Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, Yale and Columbia.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about working with me! I look forward assisting you in the best way that I can.

Best,
Peter
