About Peter


Bio

I am a retired French/German teacher. I retired from Beacon City Schools in 1998 and have since substituted and tutored privately wherever my services were required and I was able to oblige.

A native German I came to the US in 1957 and attended Marist college from 1962 to 1966. I spent my first year away in Glasgow, Scotland, teaching French at St. Mungo's Academy. Returned to US to accept the French position at Beacon CS and taught there (7-12) until my retirement. Our courses ranged from...

I am a retired French/German teacher. I retired from Beacon City Schools in 1998 and have since substituted and tutored privately wherever my services were required and I was able to oblige.

A native German I came to the US in 1957 and attended Marist college from 1962 to 1966. I spent my first year away in Glasgow, Scotland, teaching French at St. Mungo's Academy. Returned to US to accept the French position at Beacon CS and taught there (7-12) until my retirement. Our courses ranged from Beginning Language to AP level.

In 1968, I attended the Goethe Institute in Montreal, a summer symposium in German literature, at the conclusion of which I was awarded the complete works of Schiller, presented by Dr. Michael Speidel. From 1974-1975, I studied at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France, at the IPFE institute, and received a License es Lettres - roughly equivalent to an American Liberal Arts Masters degree.

In the twilight of my career at Beacon, I taught German in the studio of the Distance Learning Network, a televised course with other schools on line. Throughout my career at Beacon, I organized many overseas study/visitation trips for HS students and any interested adults during Spring break. While pursuing graduate studies at New Paltz during the 70's, I attended several Summer study programs in France (Bordeaux, Vittel, Grand, Contrexeville) and was counselor/teacher at the last of these.

I have always strived to instill a reason for learning a Foreign language in my students, and have, as a result, placed a primary importance in being able to communicate in the target language.

All reviews exceptional

Peter is very knowledgeable. He has a nice teaching style and is very engaging.

We worked on grammar and then on conversation. He was trying to figure out my level and what we'd need to work on. He challenged me but was playful and lighthearted about it.

Excellent teacher! C'est un professeur de premiere classe.

Peter is an exceptional French tutor! He has the ability to structure a great learning environment, from young kids to very advanced students.
