About Peter

I have worked for over 20 years in the private sector in business and financial services. I currently hold a teaching certificate from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for Business, Information Technology, and Computers in grades K-12. I have used such applications as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access on a professional basis.

My bachelor's degree is in Computer Management Information Systems from Holy Family University. I also have undergraduate experience in teaching Spanish and French and am proficient in Italian, Romanian, and Portuguese. I have also studied German and Dutch and used both conversationally with friends. I have tutored in many subjects including ESL, grammar and spelling, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

I am flexible with different learning styles as I realize not all students learn the same way or at the same rate so I try to adapt my teaching to what works for that individual learner.

I have all three of my clearances to work in schools: Child Abuse History Clearance, FBI Fingerprint Background Check, and Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Records Check, which are current for the 2014-2015 school year and I have on hand for those who request these documents.
