About Peter

I have been a teacher of AP Chemistry, Physics and Biology at some of the nation's best private schools for 30 years. Previous employers include both Baylor and McCallie Schools in Chattanooga, TN for a combined total of 19 years. Over the course of my career, my AP students have averaged 4.8+ on their AP exams as 90% of them have scored 5s. Only one student in 30 years has scored a 3 (none lower). Two dozen of my chemistry students have regularly made the top twenty in the nation on the ACS chemistry Olympiad. Two have placed 1st and 2nd in the country, later placing 5th and 6th in the world in the international competition. If you want a very experienced instructor to prepare you well in any subject, if you bring the motivation, I'll deliver the results you seek.
