Hi! I'm Peter, a physics teacher originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I became a teacher through a unique path at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that started with a bachelor's degree in physics, followed by a master's degree in science education. I chose this route because I wanted to be sure that I had a depth of knowledge in my subject area, as well as some effective teaching methods under my belt before I started my career.

Hi! I'm Peter, a physics teacher originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I became a teacher through a unique path at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that started with a bachelor's degree in physics, followed by a master's degree in science education. I chose this route because I wanted to be sure that I had a depth of knowledge in my subject area, as well as some effective teaching methods under my belt before I started my career. I maintained a GPA above 3.9 for both degrees, and can confidently say that I learned a lot from my experiences.

During my semester of student teaching, the chair of the science department at Lincoln East High School repeatedly pointed out small-group and 1-on-1 tutoring to be one of my greatest strengths, with communication coming in as a close second. I would spend between 30 minutes and an hour before and after school on most days answering questions and helping students get caught up for missed lessons. These sessions were heavily student guided, and allowed me to focus in on the specific parts of each concept that students were struggling with. Throughout the semester, the students often reported this extra tutoring as one of the most helpful things they experienced in my class.

I love getting to know my students because there are often many real-life connections that can be tied to the abstract areas of math and science that I teach, which help make the concepts more relevant and memorable. A typical example of this would be using soccer analogies to help make calculations on a moving object more accessible for a student. I love tutoring because I get to tailor lessons to each individual student to make sure that they are getting the most out of every session, and because it gives me opportunities to make science fun and exciting that may not present themselves in a typical classroom.

Physics often relies on the tools found in both Algebra and Calculus to accurately and precisely describe the natural world. Throughout my bachelor's degree, I became extensively familiar wit

A+

Peter is a great tutor! Helped me grasp concepts in physics which I didn't understand. He also allowed me to solve the problems and only jumped in to help when I was totally stuck. Totally recommend.
