About Peter


Bio

Hi- I'm Peter. I love to teach and I love to make teaching enjoyable and entertaining. Helping people learn should not be dry and mundane. If you require assistance in learning something, in which you are having trouble, the last thing you want is for the material to be dull and boring.

Hi- I'm Peter. I love to teach and I love to make teaching enjoyable and entertaining. Helping people learn should not be dry and mundane. If you require assistance in learning something, in which you are having trouble, the last thing you want is for the material to be dull and boring. In my teaching and tutoring experience, I spend some time getting to know you - your likes and dislikes, your preferences and goals and what interests you. When I get a sense of that, I incorporate these inclinations and preferences into my tutoring so that you may feel comfortable in learning a new subject. When someone feels that the tutor knows them as an individual, you are apt to learn more quickly and have that newly acquired knowledge remain with you, longer.

As far as my educational and academic background goes, I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and Counseling. I have successfully run my own business as a psychotherapist, supervisor, lecturer, test administrator and crisis hotline participant. I have also minored in geography, American and European history, creative writing, philosophy, music and the art of humor. I am a published author and continue to write creatively. I will be having a full stage production of one of my plays in 2015. I am also in negotiations with a literary agent regarding a new novel I am writing.

The bottom line for me is that I enjoy imparting knowledge. But I also learn from the people I teach. I believe that learning is a two way street. I view tutoring as a sensitive area for those being tutored. You are allowing a stranger to know that you need assistance to make your life better and richer. This type of self-disclosure is brave and courageous. I understand this and admire it. I see my responsibility as a tutor as not only mentoring you in the area in which you are having difficulty, but in making the act of learning, pleasurable and exciting so that learning in the future will not be a negative encounter.

I hope this helps you in understanding a bit about me. I sincerely hope to be given the

Poker is a game that is certainly entertaining as well as possessing the ability to be educational.
