About Peter

I'm glad you're taking the time to look over my experience and qualifications as a tutor. With a Masters of Science degree in teaching and over 20 years of experience educating students, I'll be happy to assist your student's making steady progress. I've been teaching in a Pre-K to 12th grade school for the last 15 years and have taught Art, English for Second Language Learners, and other subjects as an Adjunct Professor at Front Range Community College in Colorado and at Genesee Community College in New York.

A lifetime of teaching really began with my registered nurse mother and my college professor dad. As the second oldest of their ten children, I grew up babysitting and training younger brothers and sisters. Guiding student's accomplishments as they master knowledge of art history, learn skills of linear perspective drawing or discover they can do what they never knew they were capable of is my work. Gaining confidence and skills , many of my students have gone on to colleges and jobs and it brings a lot of satisfaction to watch their success.

As a tutor I realize the importance of getting to know the individual educational profile of each student. Each student I teach has a differentiated learning style.
I think my own struggles in learning have given me a sensitivity to students as they strive for mastery of the challenges presented by any given learning task.
Provided with an environment in which they feel free to exercise their creativity they flourish in their art education. The teacher's observation as students work with their hands and the student's observation of hands on examples done by the teacher is also very important. Listening to the to the whole of a students being as we get to know each other, along with attentiveness to specific struggles while working on a task, creates a rapport and a trusting relationship in which learning can thrive.
