"Great tutor! He really knows the ins and outs of the SAT/ACT exams."
Angela from Westlake, OH on 11/19/13
Pete met with our daughter several times before her SAT, and then again before her ACT. He did a really great job of identifying the appropriate areas on which to focus for her. If you are looking for a tutor for SAT/ACT type tests I think that Pete's past experience has helped him really know what areas will help students when taking the exams. Most of the time it isn't about academics, it is about knowing what to expect on the test, how best to utilize your time, where to focus, where to skim, how to identify what the questions are really asking, etc etc and Pete really knows the "tips" to help a student be more successful. As for his personality, my daughter felt very comfortable with Pete. She tends to not be very talkative in new situations and yet she seemed very comfortable talking to Pete and asking him questions. Her tutoring sessions definitely helped boost her confidence and she felt better prepared when taking her exams.

Worked with my son who highly recommends him. Gave good insight and strategies to the tests. Found weaknesses and worked on them as well as improving strong suits.
"Great Tutor - Provides help with ACT content as well as strategy"
Carl from Independence, OH on 12/9/13
Pete helped my daughter prepare for the ACT. When she started she could not complete the sections and score around 25. After working with Pete she is completing the sections within the time limits and scoring around 30-31. She said when she is taking the practice tests and gets stuck she uses the Pete's techniques and normally gets the correct answer. Pete is very positive, personable and is a great tutor.

Pete tutored my son before taking the ACT and it was the best thing I did to help prepare him. He ended up raising his score 5 points! Pete was very flexible, patient and easy to work with. He was very prompt getting back to me. I would highly recommend Pete as a tutor.

"Pete is awesome"
Lisa from Westlake, OH on 10/8/13
My daughter tutored with Pete and she found his guidance to be very helpful. She managed to raise her ACT composite from a 29 to a 32 which was a great achievement. Pete is patient and very specific in the tasks he assigns and materials he uses. Very helpful!

We can't say enough about our 17-year-old son's ACT tutoring experience with Pete. He engaged our son in the process and gave him some very practical and relevant tips that our son used during the second time he took the test. The final outcome was a three point increase in our son's score from the first to second test.
"Great Tutor! "

Pete is a fantastic SAT math tutor. He teaches many different test taking strategies and ways to interpret problems. Pete places a focus on the quality, not quantity of work. He doesn't make the assumption that everyone loves math. As someone who has a stronger background in English, Pete's approach to explaining problems is very helpful.
"Excellent tutor - highly recommend!"
Kathy from Rocky River, OH on 3/3/13
I would highly recommend Pete for ACT/SAT tutoring. He was prompt to every appointment and very professional, yet easy going to work with. He quickly developed a good rapport with my daughter and was able to focus on her specific needs in a very patient and encouraging manner. He gave her many strategies to use in approaching both of the tests that only comes with years of experience. Overall, as a result of working with Pete, my daughter was much more confident in taking the tests and her scores reflected it!
"Highly recommended for ACT prep"
Lisa from Strongsville, OH on 2/27/13
Pete worked with my son for approximately 2 months prior to taking the ACT. My son had previously taken the ACT and did well on Math and English, but wanted to improve his scores especially in the Reading and Science sections. Pete provided some excellent strategies, and kept our son focused on what to work on each week by setting realistic weekly goals. His overall score increased with significant improvement in both reading and science. Pete was prompt, professional and provided good feedback following each session. I would not hesitate to recommend Pete for ACT test prep.

Pete is very personable and he has a good approach with teens. He is calm and insightful and very encouraging.
"Very fine tutor"
Freda from Beachwood, OH on 1/8/13
Pete was very smart, realistic, and strategic in his tutoring. Honed in on content areas with greatest needs. Patient and good explainer. Very pleasant and professional to deal with. I absolutely recommend him, without reservation.
"Worth every penny"
Pat from Hudson, OH on 10/3/12
My son worked with Pete for about two months leading up to the SAT. Our goal was to have Pete help my son improve his already very good score - esp. in reading. WOW is all I can say. Pete knows how to drill into the subtleties of questions and explain it back in a way no study guide could ever achieve. My son actually looked forward to Pete's sessions! Pete was enormously helpful in so many ways: insightful, challenging, courteous, punctual, flexible, fair, etc. Do you and your child a favor - hire Pete!
Corrine from Chagrin Falls, OH on 7/31/12
We found Pete to be very professional, patient, and willing to work around a very busy student schedule! Pete does an excellent job teaching methods and not just giving an answer. Not only did my daughter's ACT score increase, she also did extremely well on 3 AP exams which she felt were related to her tutor sessions. She said, and I'll quote, "I could hear Pete's voice telling me how to interpret this question before giving my answer". Great results, well worth it, and very satisfied with the WyzAnt service in general!
"Great Tutor! Highly recommend"
Cathy from Olmsted Falls, OH on 6/4/12
Pete was very positive, direct and was wonderful to work with. We looked for another tutor after the first highly and sought after tutor was not working out well at all. He jumped right in to address the areas that needed the most attention, set up assignments that were realistic considering the very crazy schedule our daughter has and a timely review of the materials. Our daughter is taking her ACT in June and is has seen a very nice improvement in all of her practice tests. Pete is very professional and gives great tips and tricks along with the learning!
"great so far"
Tammy from Westlake, OH on 2/15/12
My daughter finds Pete very easy to follow and to understand. He is very flexible with his time, he schedules his time to revolve around her sports, which is difficult at times.
