About Peter

I have loved and enjoyed mathematics since at least elementary school. I desire to help others come to enjoy or at least not hate their experiences with mathematics. I enjoy tutoring students whether they are just trying to successfully fulfill a requirement or desire to pursue a career in mathematics. Seeing student improve is quite rewarding.
Past experience tutoring includes coordinating the math lab at a four-year university. I tutored subjects including high pre-algebra, calculus I, II, & II, college algebra, statistics, contemporary mathematics, linear algebra, and upper level math classes. I graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics in less than 3 years with a 4.0. My undergraduate research was in the area of Discrete Mathematics. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in mathematics at Baylor University.
I have experience taking numerous standardized tests and am glad to help prepare others to excel in these.

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.

Discrete Math

My bachelor honors thesis was on a question from graph theory which is a portion of discrete mathematics. Completing this thesis required a considerable knowledge of discrete mathematics. I carried out consider research of the existing literature in the field using online resources, inter-library loan, and visiting half dozen university libraries. After this I wrote proofs hoping to expand the field.

I also tutored topics from the field of discrete mathematics while math lab coordinator at North Greenville University.

Linear Algebra

In college I took linear algebra and obtained an A. I have also obtained an A in Abstract Algebra which comes after Linear Algebra. I tutored students in both these classes while a math lab tutor (later coordinator) for North Greenville University.
