About Peter


Bio

I've taught the GMAT and LSAT for over 25 years. My teaching experience is what sets me apart from other tutors. Nothing can substitute for the know-how that comes from years of working with all kinds of students on every part of the test. Whatever you've just discovered is a difficulty, I've helped lots of others overcome it long ago. I communicate dynamically and effectively to help you learn the substance and the skills to succeed on test day.

I've taught the GMAT and LSAT for over 25 years. My teaching experience is what sets me apart from other tutors. Nothing can substitute for the know-how that comes from years of working with all kinds of students on every part of the test. Whatever you've just discovered is a difficulty, I've helped lots of others overcome it long ago. I communicate dynamically and effectively to help you learn the substance and the skills to succeed on test day.

No matter how you feel now about the process of studying for the test, you'll probably end up enjoying it more than you thought you would.

But you don't need to take my word for it. On request, I'll put you in touch with current or past students of mine, and you can ask them anything you want about what it's like to work with me.

For new students, the first lesson is free of charge, no strings attached. I don't do this to be nice; I do it because it's an effective business practice. When you take that first lesson, you'll want more. Try me out, and you'll see for yourself that I'm the right choice to help you achieve your goals on the test.

GMAT

I've helped students get better at the GMAT for over two decades, from all starting points. I've taught people starting at 200, at mid 700s, and everything in between. Whatever the skills you need to improve, I know how to help you achieve that improvement and maybe even enjoy the process a little more than you thought you would.

LSAT

LSAT

I've taught the LSAT since 1995. After a couple of decades of doing nothing but test prep for work, I went back to school, earning a law degree with honors and passing the bar exam in 2019. But my true love still beckoned, and I answered, quitting my legal job to go back to teaching. I know the material on the LSAT inside and out, and I know how to communicate it to you. You'll be glad you chose me to help you succeed on the LSAT.

Helped Me Get a Great Score

Peter helped me to get a great score on the GMAT. We focused on the verbal section of the exam. When we went over questions that I had answered incorrectly or found confusing, he gave detailed explanations that cleared up any confusion. Moreover, he also taught me about broader concepts that helped me to understand what to look for when answering questions. Also, his teaching style was not too rigid; he was able to adapt to my needs. Overall, I enjoyed my time with him and I am satisfied with the results that he helped me to achieve.

A tutor who really knows his stuff!

Peter is an excellent LSAT tutor. His tips and suggestions are specific, not general or generic. If you're looking to improve your score, Peter is the tutor for you.

Gets You To Where You Need To Be

When I first started working with Peter for LSAT prep, I had already gotten an objectively good score - above a 160. However, I knew that wasn't where I wanted to be, so I began my sessions hoping to push my score into the 170+ range. With the LSAT, every point and every detail counts for so much more when pushing for higher scores, and Peter was always on top of every detail; even when I had a concept 90% of the way there, he was able to pick up on the 10% I was missing to give me a full understanding of the question and why I missed it. I worked consistently with Peter for months and, while there were some road bumps on the way, I saw consistent progress: after about a month of working together, I broke the 170 mark on a practice test. Eventually, 170+ scores became the norm, and anything below that was abnormal for my performance. Even after factoring in the seven or so tests I took before working with Peter, my average score over 60+ tests was almost a 171. When it comes to any performance, you don't rise to the occasion - you fall back on your day in, day out training. My consistent work with Peter is why I scored in the range I needed to come test day, and his eye for detail and thorough understanding of the material is why I improved consistently during our time working together. I know that Peter can help you get those extra 10 points, regardless of where your baseline is. Thanks Peter, appreciate all the help.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Effective Communicator

Peter has basically had to reteach me everything I thought I learned from a mass market program. I very much appreciate the amount of completely useful information that he give you for free with his first 3 hour lesson (at least 5 things that I could use to improve my score immediately). He has his program down and has mastered how to teach it to other. Warning, there is homework! I have booked weekly lessons with him - he is very much worth the investment.

Knows His Stuff

Peter taught me a way to check my answers to make sure they are correct that my prep course did not. He is extremely helpful and makes sure you understand every step of the way.

Learned a lot in a short amount of time

Great way to approach the data sufficiency questions on the GMAT that is not taught anywhere else (he made this way that's 100% correct every time).

Proficient and Effective

Peter was able to quickly assess my skills and weaknesses and tailor his tutoring to suit my needs. He is without a doubt an authority on preparing for and taking the GMAT. His guidance was paramount in my ability to achieve a score I was satisfied with on the GMAT. I recommend his tutoring service with complete confidence.

Great Tutor!

Peter is an excellent tutor who explains the material in a clear and succinct manner. We met at a coffee shop and went over math problems and concepts for a few hours a session over a couple days. He really prepared me for the GRE and gave me the confidence to succeed!
