Hi! I'm Peter, a physics teacher originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I became a teacher through a unique path at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that started with a bachelor's degree in physics, followed by a master's degree in science education. I chose this route because I wanted to be sure that I had a depth of knowledge in my subject area, as well as some effective teaching methods under my belt before I started my career.

Hi! I'm Peter, a physics teacher originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I became a teacher through a unique path at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that started with a bachelor's degree in physics, followed by a master's degree in science education. I chose this route because I wanted to be sure that I had a depth of knowledge in my subject area, as well as some effective teaching methods under my belt before I started my career. I maintained a GPA above 3.9 for both degrees, and can confidently say that I learned a lot from my experiences.

During my semester of student teaching, the chair of the science department at Lincoln East High School repeatedly pointed out small-group and 1-on-1 tutoring to be one of my greatest strengths, with communication coming in as a close second. I would spend at least an hour before and after school on most days answering questions and helping students get caught up for missed lessons. These sessions allowed me to focus in on the specific parts of each concept that students were struggling with. Throughout the semester, the students often reported this extra tutoring as one of the most helpful things they experienced in my class.

I love getting to know my students because there are often many real-life connections that can be tied to the abstract areas of math and science that I teach, which help make the concepts more relevant and memorable. A typical example of this would be using soccer analogies to help make calculations on a moving object more accessible for a student. I love tutoring because I get to tailor lessons to each individual student to make sure that they are getting the most out of every session, and because it gives me opportunities to make science fun and exciting that may not present themselves in a typical classroom.

My favorite part of teaching is answering questions, so please feel free to reach out to me with any comments or concerns you have. I'm always happy to help, and I look forward to working with you!

Great and efficient tutor

Peter really helped me understand physics. Explained concepts throughly and effectively and didn’t hesitate to answer any questions. If your looking for a tutor I’d recommend Peter for sure.

Tafara, 1 lesson with Peter

Adaptive and Clever Professional

Peter was able to help me with a work related problem. If a chimp like myself could grasp these concepts after working with him, then that speaks volumes. I will definitely be continuing to work with him.

Danny, 1 lesson with Peter

Great teacher, extremely patient

Peter K. Answered all my questions and let me watch a video so I could understand the problems better and get the correct answers

Max, 16 lessons with Peter

Very Knowledgeable

Peter did a great job of guiding me through problems when I needed help and knew exactly when to let me run through the problems on my own. Peter is very patient and understands when to go more in depth on a certain topic.

Ryan, 4 lessons with Peter

great physics tutor

Has really helped my 11th grader in AP Physics with some tough concepts - teaches thinking and concepts and not just facts

Sean, 39 lessons with Peter

A+

Peter is a great tutor! Helped me grasp concepts in physics which I didn't understand. He also allowed me to solve the problems and only jumped in to help when I was totally stuck. Totally recommend.
