About Peter

I am Illinois certified middle school math teacher at Morgan Park Academy, a private school on the south side of Chicago. I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to.

I have taught 5th grade math for the last two years and have used all types of approaches to make learning math challenging, interactive, and fun. I have a calm, nurturing demeanor and I excel at relating the material to middle school aged kids.

It was great working with Peter! He was always prepared to review concepts using multiple methods to ensure comprehension and created a relaxed atmosphere for learning with his patience and humor. My daughter really felt confident that she knew the material for class and her improved test scores were evidence of the value of the tutoring sessions. So glad we worked with Peter!
