« Perfect! Peter is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my programming and even explained the parts I didn't understand, no matter how many times I didn't get it. He is super helpful and recommends some tips to make a program look more neat and professional. I am so happy with his teaching and even managed to pass the course. Would totally recommend him. »

BS Computer Science (distinction) / MS IT graduate (highest distinction) teaching Python programming to high school or uni students in Adelaide (or other states via Zoom)

Methodology

I have been teaching programming since 2015. I simply enjoy doing it. I have taught over 100 students now, most coming from zero programming background. I am a very thorough and patient teacher. I will guide you through the basics of the language step by step. Generally, I give practical tips to help you solve problems efficiently.

Perfect! Peter is an absolutely amazing tutor I know from this website, he knows what he's doing. I've been struggling with Python this semester and he basically saved me. He's very patient and can show you practical examples along with theory so you can easily understand. I highly recommend him.

Peter was my professor in Computer Programming back in university. He was always hands-on in teaching and discussing topics with us. His instructions were easy to follow and digest, given I was new to programming back then. He makes sure to give constructive feedback on our projects and assignments. He will always be one of my inspirations in changing my career related to the field of data and computer science. If I'd have another programming course back in university, I'd always look for the class where Peter will be the professor.

Super recommended! Sir Peter makes sure we understand even the complex topics. He is known to put A+ effort in providing lessons that are both engaging and interesting. He teaches with clarity and utmost patience. I'm sure that your lessons with him will be fulfilling

I have known Peter for many years now. I've sat in during his classes in his previous university post, and in other private/corporate/non-government settings where he would be invited to deliver lectures of workshops. I have also volunteered on occasion to be his "test audience" for some of the presentations or classes he was preparing for -- a practice which ought to tell you something about how seriously he takes his job.

Both on a personal and professional level, I can confidently say that Peter is by far one of the most dedicated and hardworking people I have ever met. Frankly, so few people are as wonderfully suited for teaching as he is. If there was ever such a thing as a God-given calling, Peter's calling would be teaching.

Here are some qualities I want to highlight about Peter for why students would absolutely benefit from being in his classes:

* He has a decade of real, hands-on experience in corporate and non-corporate IT settings. So you can be very sure that you are being guided by someone who knows what he is doing.
* He thoroughly rehearses and researches what he teaches. I should know this, as I've had the pleasure of reviewing some of the material he has used.
* He cares deeply about his students. Not once have I ever seen or heard of him being laid-back or falling back on rehashed ideas. He will find ways to figure out what he can do to make the learning experience better.
* He appreciates (and sometimes demands) feedback. While my assessment is that he knows much more about his material than he lets on, again he doesn't fall back on this confidence. He is always looking for ways to improve, whether it is the pacing of material or the color patterns for his PowerPoint slides -- and he is VERY good at designing presentations. I've had him design some for myself. (He has great talent for painting, just want to say.)

To end this recommendation, one of my favorite stories of him goes back to when he was still an undergrad. He was not rich by any means, and for the first three years of schooling had no computer of his own. For any assignment or project, he had to write all the code by hand and go to computer cafes (as they were called back then) to run them -- and quickly, because he had little money to spend for time in the computer cafe, and he needed to make sure he didn't destroy the computer in the process. He had to know with almost total certainty that the pages upon pages of code he wrote in his notebook would work the first time. This was not an ideal situation, but the result was that Peter can write and process code in his head, and figure out whether or not a code will run even before it is tested. And this grit really shows, not just in his professional skills but in his whole personality. He wants things done right, not for his own sake but for the fundamental reason that they need to be done right. Students can be assured of this.

Sir Peter is very pleasant, very accommodating and very helpful. I once had a coding class under him and there was not a single session that I got bored. If I were not yet set on my engineering course, I would have taken a coding course because of him.
