Peter grew up in Princeton, New Jersey where he was immersed in the academic culture of the town. For as long as he can remember, he has been fascinated with how everything works, and this scientific passion followed him all the way to Connecticut College in New London, CT.
Peter graduated with a degree in chemistry/biochemistry and was awarded the American Institute of Chemists Foundation Award for excellence in biochemistry. During his summers, Peter conducted research on dark matter at Princeton University. He is currently working as an EMT in Boston and will be starting med school at The Larner College of Medicine at The University of Vermont next fall.
Peter first started tutoring in college as a peer tutor for both organic chemistry and biochemistry. His strengths include chemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and test preparation for the MCAT, where he scored a 525 (100th percentile). Peter enjoys guiding students through the toughest pre-medical course work and tests because he understands how stressful and overwhelming the whole process can be.
Aside from tutoring, Peter enjoys cooking, skiing, playing ice hockey and squash, and working out.
