Peter Cheng holds Master’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering and Education, alma maters of the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University. After earning two California Teaching Credentials in Mathematics and Science, he taught at a number of middle and high schools including Gunn High in Palo Alto. He is committed to helping students succeed in school and in life. Each of his lessons consists of two aspects of instructions. The first aspect focuses on the contents of the subjects to be taught. His lessons have a clear objective of what the students are about to embark on, well-planned and well-paced. His instructions are clear and easy to understand. His lessons consist of active engagements and are able to differentiate for all learners. Students learn how to develop critical thinking skills asking how, why, if and what else questions. A method of assessment makes sure that students learn the material and meet the objective of the lesson. The second aspect guides student behavior to foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, intellect, and individuality. This includes note taking, problem solving, test taking, and other techniques. In addition, having been in the computer industry as a vice-president of engineering and entrepreneur, he strives to inspire students to think outside the box and put the pursuit of dreams into perspective.
