About Peter

I understand that academic improvement in a student seldom occurs spontaneously, instead it is attained through deliberate effort. It is for this reason that I am a constant source of information, support and encouragement for all my pupils. I never underestimate the potential of my pupils and monitor them very closely for any signs that may demonstrate their ability or interest in a particular subject.

Since July of 2007, I was teaching at the Rockdale County High School in Conyers, Georgia, where apart from my typical duties, I also coached soccer, conducted after-school tutoring and went out of my way to talk to pupils about acceptable and appropriate behavior. My duties include; designing interesting study material for pupils, formulating good questions for discussion and inspiring students to study hard and learn more. In class I always have the welfare of my students in mind, and do everything possible to be admired and trusted by them. At work I am renowned for my ability to integrate old teaching methods with new technology and techniques.

I possess in-depth knowledge of math, chemistry, biology, botany, microbiology, cell biology, research methodology, anatomy and physiology, genetics, biotechnology, environmental science and molecular biology subjects I teach and am very good at explaining things to others.

I taught high school level algebra for five years and completed college level algebra, trigonometry, calculus l and calculus ll.

Experienced (15 years) and certified science educator who taught Agriculture Science, Forensic Science, Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Physical Science, Chemistry and Environmental Science. Additionally, I completed college course work with Lab activities all mentioned subjects with graduate/ advanced level course and lab work in Applied Microbiology and Analytical Chemistry and Contaminated Site Remediation.

Proven track record of assisting students succeed at passing standardized exams that they have failed multiple times.
