We hired Peter for a few sessions during late October/early November to assist my daughter with her reading and math skills. She is not the easiest child to work with - she is on the autism spectrum and diagnosed with ADHD as well which means she had close to zero focus for any academic work. Even after disclosing this information upfront to Peter, he did not seem daunted by the task at hand. His first day was him trying to figure out where she was in terms of her reading skills - they managed to read one of her books through - slowly, but surely, and with much repetition of words. At no times did he raise his voice or lose his patience with her. With much redirection, he was able to accomplish this task. The next session was focused on her adding skills - trying to have her rote add simple math was difficult thanks to her lack of focus, but again with much repetition, they were able to go through a page of problems. Her teacher at school had begun to teach her a new way to do math and had just taught us the basic skills for simple match. Again, we saw his patience with her even when she started to drift off onto other topics. We instructed Peter on the use of this concept and he used this technique in his next session which he was pleased to see worked well with her. If Peter is able to work with her, he will be able to work with any child as he is one of the most patient people I've ever met.
Our son was behind in reading and writing when he finished kindergarten. To prepare him for first grade, we knew we had to get him professional help.
Peter has been coming to our house for over a year now; not only has our son caught up in reading and writing, but he has also gained confidence as well.
Peter is extremely patient and very calm when he explains things. Our son truly enjoys the weekly tutoring session with him. Thank you, Peter!
Our 8 year old son has suffered the cumulative effects of poor public education over the last 2 years, leaving him ill-prepared to enter 3rd grade. This required us to find professional help which is how we came across WyzAnt and Peter F. Peter has been coming to our home several times a week for the last month and we have noticed improved reading skills as well as increased interest in learning. Peter also incorporates music into his spelling/reading tutoring which serves to lighten and lubricate a process that might otherwise seem dry to an 8 year old who only likes art! Thanks Peter!
Peter has been tutoring my son for several months, and was instrumental in helping him improve his math skills so that he completed fourth grade math at grade level. Peter is calm and patient with my son, and is always flexible and responsive to our requests/needs. My son will continue to see him over the summer for math, and we will also add on writing assistance.
We strongly recommend Peter!
Peter has taken our son from hating math to feeling more confident and successful. They cover a lot more material than our son has had the capacity to complete previously. Peter is calm, patient, yet encouraging.
I am very impressed with Peter. He has been tutoring my 9 year old son in writing for just a few weeks and I have already seen a lot of progress. Peter is conscientious, well-prepared, patient, and clearly a gifted educator.
