About Peter

I am a former graduate student at UVA in the Department of Biology with extensive teaching experience as a TA. I obtained an undergraduate degree in biological sciences from Stanford University. I also have obtained certification to teach high school biology in the state of Virginia through a Career Switchers program at Shenandoah University, and have tutored elementary school children in reading and mathematics in Orange County. I am fairly versatile in my teaching methods and in my capability of tutoring in the fields of mathematics, biology, and reading and literature.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Precalculus

I have experience in tutoring mathematics and the SAT- and honors trigonometry-level, in addition to the experience I gained as a teaching assistant in the biology department at UVA, where I taught some aspects of quantitative biochemical and genetics concepts.

SAT Reading

Great Tutor! Would happily use services again — I recently met with Peter for GRE "Quantitative Reasoning" tutoring. He was patient, timely, and considerate. As I told Peter, Math is not my strong suit, and requested that he "bare with me." Spite my own self doubt in my mathematical abilities, Peter was very encouraging and reinforced my strengths. I would definitely use him again in the future. ...
