“I’ve taken a look at Peter’s very good work” 

Chris Rawson 
Senior Educational Developer

"Peter's commitment to delivering digital content of the highest quality is underpinned by his deep understanding of online educational design, attention to detail, and his ability to learn and apply new technologies quickly.’’ 

Jessica Cheung
Digital Developer

"I worked with Peter at Deakin University. He brought valuable expertise in digital learning and higher education to our team and was an insightful and supportive colleague. I hope to work with him again in the future."

Kristen Richards
Senior Educational Developer

"(Peter) You made it possible for us to reach our targets'' 

Rachel Holt
RMIT Training

"It was a pleasure to work as Peter's co-teachers, preparing and delivering an Upper-Intermediate tertiary language course over two modules at RMIT University. Peter impressed me as is a highly-motivated, organized teacher who is always keen to develop his skills as a teacher and could develop inspiring relationships with his students. 

Indeed, Peter is tireless in his commitment to the wellbeing and academic outcomes of his students. Peter has a wonderful rapport with people of all ages, especially the cohort of late teen to adult international students. 

Peter eagerly takes up extra professional development opportunities, in particular during non-teaching days, and embraces any opportunity to share and learn from his colleagues and from external specialists. Thus it was not a surprise when Peter embarked on his Masters in Education to fulfill his ambition for professional knowledge and on-going commitment to self-improvement.

Peter has an amazingly positive attitude toward his profession. He is committed to teamwork and collaborative working relationships while displaying a strong commitment to confidentiality."

Vicki Dritsas
Senior Language Educator

"Peter and I worked together as co-teachers presenting a ten-week course of Academic Preparation skills at the Advanced level for international students at RMIT University. Peter's professionalism, his initiative in preparation, enthusiasm and particularly his skills in critical thinking and report writing helped me to deliver the course and we achieved a fantastic result whereby all the students graduated."

Marta Navales Calvera
Language Educator

"Extremely efficient, analytical and an excellent listener are the phrases that come to my mind when I think of Peter. We studied together at Melbourne University doing the MA and we also worked together at RMIT as language educators. Peter has in-depth knowledge of the English language and can be quite insightful about students' classroom behaviours. He will never say no to a conversation about big or small issues at work, which can be either in a formal meeting or over a casual coffee! Peter is a great person to work/study with and I hope that one day our paths will meet again!!!"

“(Peters) duties... included creation and demonstration of customized lessons and team-based curriculum development” 

Daniel Scott 
Director of Learning

"Through the Faculty of Business and Economics’ (UoM) Career Mentoring Program, I was extremely fortunate to be paired with Peter. Throughout our mentorship, Peter demonstrated a strong commitment to my personal and professional development. 

Above all, I was impressed with Peter’s ability to bring progressive and innovative strategies to enhance critical thinking, courage and resilience. 

Peter is a talented mentor and I highly recommend him for both personal and professional development. His precious insights into how to pursue better career choices, and result in a more aligned and satisfying career, was exceptionally valuable. 

Peter assisted me with my transition out of university into the workforce, as well as to increase my networking circle involving members of the industry in mutually beneficial relationships. I feel privileged to have shared this experience with Peter and am so grateful for the time and effort he dedicated to the program. 

Peter is an excellent mentor, coach, leader and friend. He demonstrates a passion for assisting others in their career development and expertise in his guidance. 

Anyone who has the opportunity to know or work with Peter is very lucky. And, of course, his personality gave a special atmosphere during our meetings."

Bart, P

“Peter was my student in the Master of Education and studied an Advanced subject in this course, called The Second Language Curriculum subject. His final mark was 90/100 which was an H1, First Class Honours. Peter's strengths were his ability to contribute to the class discussion and engage with other students (domestic and international). He also met the requirements for academic writing and referencing at Master's level. His final project was to design a second language curriculum in which he creatively showed his skills and knowledge of the topic and integrated conceptual, theoretical, pedagogical principles to offer a sophisticated design." 

Dr. Mahtab Janfada
Lecturer at The University of Melbourne

"Peter was in sales, he was heavily focused on developing the student experience through his passionate belief in the value of the international education experience. He was extremely dedicated to his work which was balanced with a jovial nature that warmly welcomed potential students at our college. I would recommend Peter should you require a deeply knowledgeable person with a commitment to achieving goals balanced alongside a great humanitarian."

Jason Price
