About Peter

I graduated from Wofford College in 2014 with a BA in Spanish and minors in Latin American Studies and Medical Humanities. After graduation, I spent a year teaching Spanish at a private school in Atlanta and have developed as a teacher of foreign languages. In college, I worked as a tutor for the Modern Languages department and also worked as an ESOL teacher during my semester abroad in Madrid, Spain through Middlebury College.

I have studied both French and Spanish extensively and have also lived in France, Spain, and Guatemala in order to study these languages. I have formal classroom experience teaching Spanish and have also individually tutored beginning and intermediate language students. Above all, I have a passion for foreign language and the doors that it can unlock in communicating with diverse people groups.

Because my undergraduate degree comes from a liberal arts college, I have developed critical reading, writing, and thinking skills. These skills are easily transferrable to standardized tests. Additionally, I have a proven track record in standardized test performance--I scored a 35 on ACT English and have also done well with ACT Reading. In college I took several writing courses that have prepared me well to tutor SAT Writing. I am also a freelance journalist.

Please don't hesitate to contact me. I have a flexible schedule and am willing to meet your needs and ensure your success in the classroom or on the test. I have a love of learning that I hope to pass on to you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

In college I was trained in critical reading, writing, and thinking. These skills translate well to the ACT in English. In addition, I have been successful in this test--I scored a 35 on the ACT English during my junior year of high school.

ACT Reading

In college I was trained in critical reading, writing, and thinking. These skills translate well to the ACT in English and Reading, and to the SAT. In addition, I have been successful on these tests. For example, I scored a 35 on the ACT English during my junior year of high school.

Algebra 1

I took math through AP statistics in high school and took math in college as well. I received an A in all math classes that I took and have formal classroom teaching experience.

Spanish

I graduated with a BA in Spanish from Wofford College in 2014. During the last school year, I taught Spanish III and Spanish IV at a high school in Atlanta. I lived in Madrid, Spain for five months as part of a semester abroad and have visited Guatemala twice. I also tutored beginning and intermediate Spanish students during my four years at Wofford.

Writing

In college I was trained in critical reading, writing, and thinking. As an undergraduate, I wrote for the college paper. I currently write for an online publication and have had several pieces published.
