About Peter

I am a recent graduate with a MS degree in mental health counseling. I have extensive background in psychology and creative writing but can also help in any academic area needed.

I have significant experience mentoring student athletes on organization, study skills and time management in a Division I athletic department.

I have experience teaching English to non-native speakers from Korea and proofreading/polishing experience from translated Chinese texts for Xi'an province.

I have recently relocated to North Carolina from Buffalo, NY.

I have a 3.98 undergraduate GPA in Psychology and in Community Mental Health (double major) which focused much course work on Sociological trends and Social casework.

I am a published and prize winning poet in addition to being the co-owner of an independent press.

I am interested in language and storytelling of all forms. I am an experienced and confident public speaker who has appeared in front of crowds of over 1000 as well as radio broadcast experience.

I am particularly adept at working with students to facilitate high level writing in both content and grammar.

Being new to the area, I have a great deal of flexibility in my scheduling currently and would love to help you or your family member achieve to the utmost of their ability.

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.

Psychology

I have a BA in Psychology from SUNY at Buffalo where I was TA for two sections of PSY 101 for a total of 900 students. I had several success stories with students attending my office hours raising their scores from C-D range to A-B range over the course of the semester. The professor I worked for claimed mine were the best attended office hours in his 20 year career. I specialized in working with non-native English speakers and helped several achieve success in a difficult and language intensive course. I have worked with student athletes on study skills, time management and organization as well, subjects that most, if not all, students can see improvement.

Sociology

During my undergraduate studies I was required to take several sociology classes to satisfy my double major of Psychology and Community Mental Health. I am fascinated by the statistical trends that sociological research highlights and what it tells us about our current society. This subject is often overlooked in many high school curricula.

Vocabulary

I am a published and prize winning poet with a keen interest in the English language and its use in storytelling. I have recently completed an MS degree in Mental Health counseling and worked with student-athletes on study skills, organization and time management. I have also edited two volumes of poetry and done polishing/proofreading on translations from Mandarin for the government of Xi'an province.
