Michael Peterson teaches in our Math, English, and History Departments here at Fusion Academy Oak Brook. Being a jack-of-all-trades, he also instructs in other academic subjects as well, such as art and music.
Michael received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Prescott College in Arizona and a master’s degree in education from National Louis University in Lisle, Illinois. He has gained a wealth of experience working with middle and high school students since his journey as an educator began in 2001. Most recently in 2010, Michael began working as a private tutor where he learned the joy of working with students one-on-one.
In his free time Michael enjoys listening to music, going to concerts, and playing piano. He has attended hundreds of concerts all over the country and even a few overseas. In addition to an insatiable appetite for music, he also has a passion for photography, whether it is with a fancy digital camera or simply the camera on his phone.
