Patient, knowledgeable and friendly

Peter was great working with my son. He worked through the important concepts to help him prepare for his final. The material can sometimes be overwhelming and Peter was able to break up the information.

Great Tutor

Peter is a great teacher. He is patient and he answers any questions in a way that is easy to understand. I recommend Peter especially for those just beginning in Spanish.
