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 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.

Algebra 2

I have experience tutoring SAT-level math, which includes aspects of Algebra 2-level math.

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

I have extensive experience teaching students at the college level; helped them develop skills in scientific analysis, writing.

I have experience in tutoring students at honors/AP level in high school math and biology.

Patient tutor

Peter was good enough to extend the planned length of lesson to cover the problem solving skills he thought important to get to for the lesson. Real skill in teaching comes through.
