About Peter

I lived for several years in Southern Italy and have taught Italian to beginners to advanced students for three years. I scored a 34 on the ACT and love explaining math concepts in a simple way. I have years of experience as a guitar teacher. My method is: find what the student wants and needs, make it simple enough to understand, and let them do the learning. I believe that teaching in a fast pace, simple way with lots of practice and review is the most effective. In terms of language learning, I believe that speaking almost exclusively in Italian is the fastest and best way to learn it, although I can be flexible according to your needs and wants.

If you are struggling with science classes or preparing to take the MCAT or DAT, I am your man. I scored in the 99th percentile on the DAT and spent time preparing for the MCAT as well, which has some similar sections. I have a 3.90 GPA and I have taken Organic Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Microbiology. I'd be happy to help you out. I know how precious your time is and I will do my best to maximize your investment.

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 Math

Peter scored a 34 on the ACT.

Bible Studies

I am a lifelong student of the Bible. I spent 4 years studying in seminary and continue to read regularly. I also spent two years as a missionary preaching from the bible in English and Italian every day.

Guitar

I have played guitar for 18 years and taught guitar for several years. I emphasize chord patterns, scales (including major, blues, and minor) and song composition. I help people pursue their interests in music as quickly as possible.

MCAT

I prepared to take the MCAT and ended up taking the DAT, which has many shared topics and sections. My DAT score was 23 overall (99th percentile). I have a practice-based teaching style.

Organic Chemistry

I took organic chemistry at BYU. On the O-chem section of the DAT, I only missed one question. I enjoy visualizing and helping people understand basic concepts.

Songwriting

I have been writing songs for 18 years now. I have attended several songwriting workshops and enjoy explaining songwriting theory in simple terms. In 2008 I released an album of original songs. I continue to add to the 30 or so songs I have written in my lifetime.

Study Skills

I have tutored college-aged adults in study skills for three years. I believe both an overview (the bird's eye view) and the moment-by-moment details (the worm's eye view) are important in organizing study. I emphasize memorization by repetition and mnemonics. These skills have helped me gain admissions to one of the most competitive dental school programs in the United States, and I am happy to share what I have learned with others.

Peter is an excellent tutor. He senses what my particular needs and objectives are and tailors his tutoring to meet my objectives. He instructs at the pace that is appropriate for me; while teaching me skills and concepts that will expand my progress as much as possible. I would recommend him to any student desiring to learn Italian.
