Dr. Peter K., Oxford University PhD, has tutored more than 150 students over the last 20 years, from 4th grade to graduate level, including students from various private schools such as Princeton Day School, Lawrenceville School, the Hun School and Vassar, as well as from several local public High Schools. At college level he has tutored students from the Universities of Princeton, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, Drexel, Temple, Phoenix, and the College of New Jersey. Dr. Peter offers assistance with algebra, pre-calculus, SAT, AP calculus, college calculus 1, 2 and 3, GMAT and GRE.
He is a retired Engineering Vice-President of an international Aerospace company. His industrial career included technical presentations and workshops throughout North America and Europe, to multinational companies, to NATO, and to trade delegations from China and Russia. In particular, he was proud to be part of the NASA Space Shuttle program and the development of new-generation jet engines by the General Electric Company.
Dr. Peter is always willing to offer flexible scheduling to suit the client's needs. He is also prepared to be responsive to any budgetary concerns.
My qualification for tutoring GMAT is based upon (1) my academic record and (2) my workplace experience. Academic achievements include a BS (with honors)in Applied Physics and a Doctorate in Engineering Physics from Oxford University. This academic background requires considerably more advanced mathematical and analytical skills than are required for the GMAT. On the management front, I moved from a staff position at Oxford University to industry in 1974 as a section manager for the aerospace division of a privately owned instrumentation company. In 1982 I set up a subsidiary company specializing in aerospace products, with the position of VP/General Manager. Subsequently I became Engineering Vice President for the entire company. Over the last 20 years I have given technical presentations and workshops throughout Europe and North America, to delegations from China, Russia, and to NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). I retired in 2004 to pursue my strongest interest - a career as a personal tutor.
I offer (as with for all my courses) the unique Oxford University tutoring style for the GRE, which is one of my most popular tutoring subjects.
My experience over the last 10 years is that most GRE students are accomplished in the arts, but have difficulty with mathematical analysis.
I am always pleased to be able to help anyone who is ready to commit to succeed.
