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 year after year after year of working with all kinds of students on every part of the test. 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...

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 year after year after year of working with all kinds of students on every part of the test. 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.

At the first lesson, I let new students try me out, free of charge, no strings attached. I don't do this because I'm such a nice person; I do it because I've found it to be an effective business practice. You'll see for yourself that I'm the right choice to help you achieve your goals on the test.

I highly recommend him.

I am so grateful to Peter. I had tried the self study route for over a year and it wasn’t until I found Peter on Wyzant that I made real progress towards improving my GMAT score. Peter was very kind and patient and more affordable than most tutors I had encountered. He taught me some strategies that helped me raise my score by 70 points in 3 months. Most of all, he believed in me. I did not think a T15 was achievable, but thanks to him I am now headed to an M-7 school. You’ll get real value out of your sessions with him. I highly recommend him.

Highly recommend

I have worked with Peter on the GMAT. He has incredibly extensive knowledge on each section, as well as all of the testing tips and tricks. He teaches in a manner that is both easy to understand and is patient every step of the way. After working with Peter, my GMAT knowledge improved greatly, and I understood broad concepts much better. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!

Got me from a 650 to a 750 - HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

I worked with Peter for around 7 months and cannot recommend him enough!! When I first contacted him, I had been getting mid 600's on my practice tests and was shooting for a 750. I was having a hard time mastering certain QUANT sections on my own and Peter also suggested working on Sentence Correction together because that's where I was missing the most Verbal questions. Over the next 8 months, we would end up working on every section of the test together and in hindsight, there is no way I would have gotten to a 750 without him. What I loved about Peter's tutoring, was rather than just tech me formulas or rules, he really took the time to teach me the concepts behind them. This was crucial for me because I had a lot of test-day anxiety and having a really deep understanding of the material was absolutely essential for me to calm my nerves to get through the test. I took the test four different times while working with Peter and I got a 660, 720, 740, and then finally a 750. Peter stuck with through the entire journey and really adapted his tutoring style to exactly what I needed at the time (for example, I needed to learn the concepts at the beginning, vs later on when I needed help with time management, vs the end when I just needed someone to help me fine tune certain skills). Once again, I cannot recommend Peter enough! Update : I wanted to update this review because after working with Peter to get my GMAT score up, I was accepted into one of the top three MBA schools with an almost full-ride scholarship, and I know that this would have never been possible without Peter's help. For any prospective students reading this review, please keep in mind that, although tutoring can be expensive, a high GMAT score can play a huge roll in getting more scholarship money. The amount of my scholarship ended up being six times the total amount I spent on tutoring sessions, so think of this as not money lost but as an investment that you will often get back later.

LSAT - Extremely knowledgeable and a phenomenal communicator

I started working with Peter shortly after my first attempt at the LSAT in August of 2021, where I scored a 157. He helped me dissect the portions of the test I had been struggling with (Reading Comp and Logical Reasoning) and taught me new methods for approaching these problem areas. I immediately improved, both in my practice test scores and in my comfortability with these sections. It was clear from my first lesson that Peter has a commanding grasp on the fundamental concepts tested on the LSAT, and he was able to communicate these concepts so simply and clearly that they soon felt intuitive. After about two months of working with Peter weekly, I raised my score to a 165 (Oct '21), and after resuming our sessions in 2022, I am PTing in the low-mid 170's. Simply put, Peter's mastery of this test and effective teaching style will get you scoring where you want to!

Your search for a tutor has ended.

It would be very difficult to find an LSAT tutor more dialed in to the preparation for the Law School Admissions Test than Peter. Peter has an incredibly strong grasp on the core skills that make a difference on the LSAT, and is excellent at knowing when and how to teach those skills to you. Without Peter I would not have scored in the 92 percentile on the LSAT, period. While the other test prep materials allowed me to get a grasp on the LSAT, Peter's tutoring is what allowed me to see the material from an entirely different perspective and take my abilities to the next level. As as soon as you have your first lesson with him you will understand the level of experience that Peter brings to tutoring, and if you are serious test preparation, I couldn't recommend him more.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Peter helped me with both Quant and Verbal sections of the GMAT. He has extensive resources and clearly understands the material covered in the GMAT to be a supportive and dedicated tutor. After taking lessons with Peter, my quant and verbal scores jumped up drastically!

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.
