Greetings all, I’m Peter. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and Aeronautical Engineering. Since graduating, I have had the pleasure of both working on real world engineering problems (mostly related to aircraft repairs) and being able to teach high school. and college level math. While I was still in college, I came to realize the courses I appreciated most were taught by the professors who made the classes the most enjoyable; the instructors who were the most engaging and easiest to engage with when teaching the material, and the professors who were willing to go the extra mile when I asked for additional help or clarification. I have and continue to enjoy bringing this approach to my tutoring; I do all that is in my power to make the learning experience pleasant and positive for the learner. I have at my disposal many lesson plans designed to introduce the topic in a fun or creative way, which then pivot into explicitly teaching the material. Afterwards I always ensure time for students to practice the material on their own. This method can be adjusted based on subject and the student’s individual needs.

I have several years’ experience teaching Algebra 1 and 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calc, and Calculus in both a classroom and one-on-one setting. Frequently, students in my classes would seek me out during non-class hours for extra assistance, of which I was quite happy to provide, so as to make sure they did not fall behind. Frequently, I found myself giving them in their other STEM related courses.

I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible, and therefore welcome any new resources students, parents, or otherwise can point me to. The journey of learning never stops, for any of us. I pride myself on providing prompt responses and being straightforward to contact, please reach out with any questions you have or to schedule a lesson.
