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.

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.

Botany

I have taught AP Biology for 20 years. Consequently, I am knowledgeable about a broad range of topics related to botany including plant life-cycles, reproduction, structure, phylogeny, hormones, etc.

Chemistry

I have been a teacher of advanced placement chemistry, physics and biology for three decades at some of the nations best private schools.

Genetics

I have been a teacher of AP Chemistry, Biology and Physics for 30 years. I know genetics very well. I am a Phi Beta Kappa graduate for Lake Forest College in Illinois with a 4.15 GPA in Biochemistry.

Physics

I have taught advanced placement physics and chemistry for 28 years at some of the nations best private morning schools. My students have met with exceptional success on their AP exams averaging 4.8+ out of five. Additionally, I have had two dozen chemistry students place among the top 20 in the nation on the annual international chemistry Olympiad. Two of those in addition to placing first and second in the United States ended up placing the fifth and six in the world.
