Make an important investment in your child's educational future by hiring THE BEST TUTOR IN THE WORLD.

I am a friendly, patient tutor with over twenty years of experience working with grammar school, high school and college students in the liberal arts. In addition to instruction in the specified subject area, I also work with tutorees to improve study skills and cultivate a positive attitude toward learning that will build their confidence in and out of the classroom.

I collaborate with students and their families to create an educational program tailor-made to address his or her needs. Whenever possible, I guide and encourage students to build on their current knowledge base and talents to help them develop new skills and strengthen old ones.

My subject areas include reading; composition; American, European and world literature; American, European and world history; natural science; music history and appreciation; art and architectural history; and film history.

For clients of all ages, I offer coaching in public speaking, term paper development, and managing the application process for private and parochial secondary schools, college and graduate programs.

I hold a BA degree with honors in Classics from Brown and a JD from Harvard Law School.

Successful and Happy Experience

I highly recommend tutor Todd P. He is extremely intelligent, professional, accommodating, understanding, and affordable. Todd tutored me on public speaking. In an hour he taught me how to give a confident, organized, and successful speech. The day after our session I gave an enjoyable, educational, and well received speech. I can not thank Todd enough for his ability to teach me how to focus on the best way to produce successful results in any situation.

Todd is an excellent teacher.

Todd is passionate and he truly cares that the student will see results. Everything Todd explains sticks. Todd teaches how to think, analyse and produce a great paper. He teaches a life long skill of writing and this is priceless.
