Teaching Philosophy:

Peter wants students to be confident and critical thinkers. He wants them to be successful learners who are able to apply skills and knowledge that they have gained to classroom situations and exams but also see the relevance and importance of those skills in their own lives. Students can only become strong, literate learners who engage and connect with the work if they develop intrinsic motivation to do so. They will not do this unless they see a purpose for learning skills, because in most cases the knowledge does not come easy, it is a lot of hard work. Students will not expend their time that they are capable of learning. Peter works hard to help students achieve this.
