Peter

I am a recent graduate of Swarthmore College where I received my B.A. in physics. I had minors in mathematics and philosophy, and chose to pursue the honors program at Swarthmore, graduating with High Honors. I have experience tutoring students in high school, community college, and students attending Swarthmore. I most enjoy tutoring math and physics, since these are the subjects I love studying most on my own time. Explaining abstract ideas as a TA, as a volunteer in local schools, and as a frequent contributor to the student science magazine were some of my most rewarding experiences in college. Outside of academia, I love the outdoors, especially camping and back backing. After graduating from Swarthmore I worked as a caretaker on the Appalachian Trail for four months, and am now settling down to tutor full-time until hiking season comes back into full swing. Next fall I hope to start my PhD in physics, with the ambition of one day becoming a professor at a university. Coming from an academic career track, I am very familiar with the frustrations of standardized testing, and am well-prepared to help others navigate the test preparation process.
