About Peter


Bio

Hi - I'm Peter. I've always had a preference for math and science, which explains my undergrad choice in engineering. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I received my MBA (Industrial Management) from the Wharton Graduate Division at U. of Pa. My primary work experience prior to teaching was in business planning and finance (more math). I started teaching because I enjoyed helping students at Baruch College prep for graduate school...

Hi - I'm Peter. I've always had a preference for math and science, which explains my undergrad choice in engineering. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I received my MBA (Industrial Management) from the Wharton Graduate Division at U. of Pa. My primary work experience prior to teaching was in business planning and finance (more math). I started teaching because I enjoyed helping students at Baruch College prep for graduate school entrance exams (GMAT, LSAT, GRE). Later on, I aided community college students to break through their difficulties in basic math, algebra, quantitative literacy and statistics/probability (remedial math courses). Many of these students were the first in their families to attend college.

I've been teaching math for 25+ years, both in a classroom setting and, more recently, on-line. I prefer to use a whiteboard and other visuals to present the problems and explain the methodology and steps that lead to the solution. If you are my student I would encourage you to first think through the problem and work it through on your own whenever possible, as it helps to foster self-confidence. Then I can step in and assist where I can to guide you to the correct solution.

I like to put myself in my student's place in order to understand what hurdle(s) they need to overcome to solve the math question. I can explain approaches to the solution in several ways until it makes sense to you. I am available pretty much during the week or on weekends from late morning until early evenings and can make exceptions when necessary. I would be happy to hold an initial exploratory session at no charge just so we can get to know each other and agree on what we can accomplish together.

I've been teaching basic math for many years: whole numbers, fractions (!), decimals, percents, signed numbers and algebra. Also, those pesky word problems. I know where the difficult areas are and how to help students work through them.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I've taught algebra for many years and know the areas where students have difficulty. Subjects included algebra basics. signed numbers, solving one- and two-step equations/inequalities, graphs of linear functions, systems of equations, polynomials, exponents, rational expressions, radicals and, of course, those pesky word problems.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have many years of teaching algebra I and II, from the basics through factoring, graphs of linear and exponential functions, systems of equations, logarithms, trigonometry, operations with exponents and polynomials, complex numbers, rational expressions and operations with radicals. I can help with word problems as well.
