Who’s behind

Square Peg?

Square Peg is the result of Peter Edman’s passion to provide a service for students who would otherwise struggle in the normal scheme of schooling.

After 20 years of teaching, feeling frustrated by the trend to a one-size-fits-all approach driven by the need for results, Peter resigned to pursue other options.

25+ Years Teaching

Peter’s background includes time as secondary teacher, primary and secondary teacher-librarian, small school principal and distance education teacher across both primary and secondary.

He has also worked as an online education mentor for teachers, providing one-on-one assistance and running workshops.

Prior to teaching he has been an historical researcher and writer and worked in hospitality in the kitchens.

More about Peter

Peter loves to cook, read and watch movies. He likes fishing, restoring older European cars and woodturning, but has still got a lot to learn.

He keeps up to date with global current affairs and is passionate about technology and how it can be used in learning.

Peter grew up in Papua New Guinea and along the east coast of Australia. His family is a blended “crazy train” of three stepsons and a daughter and son of his own.  His home experience of Asperger’s/ high-functioning autism as well as ADHD and dyslexia has well equipped him to understand these issues and what it means for families.

Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

“My 13-year old son was struggling last year organising and understanding what was required in his school assessments and the heavy workload in high school. We decided to get a tutor to fill the gaps where the schooling system could not. I am amazed at my son’s maturity with Peter and how well he is now doing. I am so impressed with how Peter is with him and how they work together.”

Jennifer

Parent

“For the past six months Peter Edman has provided extra tuition for my children aged 10 and 7. Peters’ knowledge of ASD and other special learning needs, combined with his acumen for providing innovative learning methods, have been instrumental in improving their grades. I feel that with Peter’s continued assistance Hayden has the best chance at succeeding at school. We have also retained Peter as an educational consultant to help my wife and I navigate through the complexities of the Australian Curriculum and the sometimes-complicated jargon.”
