About Peter

I have extensive experience in writing in both an informal and academic setting. I have been revising and editing others' papers since freshman year at Penn State and will continue to do so throughout graduate school and likely for the duration of my career.
Reading and writing are profoundly important learning and communication tools for everyone at any age, but especially throughout the formative years in elementary through middle school. It is imperative that kids read and write as much as possible, and at the highest level they can. For these reasons, I love to tutor and teach.

Reading and writing have been ingrained in my education and recreation since I was only a few years old. I have taken AP English and Literature classes in high school, poetry and journalism courses in undergrad, and have written and presented papers in academia via research done in the field of Psychology.

I have been playing soccer since I could stand. I played throughout my life at various levels. In club soccer, playing for the Rochester Jr Rhinos and Empire Academy, I won multiple titles and played in Regionals, and I won a sectional title my senior year of high school at McQuaid Jesuit, a year in which my team was ranked 6th in the nation by ESPN. Additionally, I went on to play collegiate soccer at Penn State Behrend, where I was a four year starter, MVP of our homecoming tournament senior year, and led my team as captain to a conference title and into the NCAA tournament, where we hosted the first round playoff at home for the first time in Behrend history. I have also been a counselor at numerous camps throughout my time at both McQuaid and Penn State Behrend. I take in all forms of soccer, especially the English Premier League, and I keep up to date with the ever changing landscape of game-play and coaching techniques and philosophies.

Please send me an email if you would like any kind of help in the areas of reading or writing; there is nothing too small or too grand to help. I love the English language, and if I can pass that along to someone else, I will have done my job.
If you love soccer and want to become well-versed on the current or historical aspects of the game, or want to become a better player or coach, please feel free to contact me, discussing, teaching, coaching, and learning about the beautiful game is one of my greatest passions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I have been a stickler for grammar since middle school, which is when I began to take reading and writing seriously. I have written in MLA and APA, and have written proposals for grants (received), and had a paper presented at two conferences and published in Behrend's Psychology journal. Having done this, along with taking AP English and Literature in high school, I have needed to use proper grammar in all forms of writing.

Literature

Having taken and flourish in AP English and Literature, and scoring highly, I consider myself well-versed in the world of great American and English Literature. I have read the greats, including Fitzgerald, Tolkien, Twain, Dickens, Doyle, and Melville. I love great Literature, and it is rewarding for those who are willing to live in a different world for a while.

Soccer

I have been playing soccer since I could stand. I played throughout my life at various levels. In club soccer, playing for the Rochester Jr Rhinos and Empire Academy, I won multiple titles and played in Regionals and I won a sectional title my senior year of high school at McQuaid Jesuit, a year in which my team was ranked 6th in the nation by ESPN.
