Trish

Amazing. He showed up on time. Very professional. I will admit I wasn't as prepared as I would have like to have been but he helped me jump right in and did an excellent job explaining every problem along the way. Can't wait for the next lesson!

Patricia, 5 lessons with Pete

Very nice and knowledgeable

Pete worked with Sam on geometry. He is struggling with some of the concepts and Pete was very patient and positive. Sam was able to focus and complete his assignment. Pete is a true professional!

Marla, 4 lessons with Pete

Algebra 1. Great First time with Tutor

My Daughter liked working with Peter very much. She felt at ease and comfortable asking him questions. He also showed her things she didn't know how to do on her calculator. We are very happy with Peter.

Cindy, 10 lessons with Pete

Excellent high school math tutor

Mr. P. has been working with my daughter on Trigonometry for about 6 months. During that time she went from barely passing to receiving solid grades on each test, and her confidence has increased drastically. In her words "math just flows out of him and the way he shows me how to solve problems lets me actually understand them." He is an excellent tutor and I have nothing but positive things to say about him.

Joel, 16 lessons with Pete

Great tutor

Pete is a treasure! I'm so glad we found him. He makes geometry so much easier for my daughter. He's better than pricier tutors we have used in the past.

Gwendolyn, 13 lessons with Pete

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My 16 yr old son was very apprehensive about having a tutor but when it was all over he was very happy, said he learned a lot and actually asked me when his next session was!

Gogi, 4 lessons with Pete

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Pete breaks math down easily and explains it calmly. Looking forward to future sessions! I've been out of touch with math for many years and he helps me get right back into it.

Cati, 1 lesson with Pete

Expert Math teacher and tutor

My son had a very positive experience with Pete. He learned new ways to complete complicated math problems that made it easier for my son. We have another appointment already scheduled.

Lisa Joy, 62 lessons with Pete

Extremely knowledgeable, patient, and reassuring

Pete had our child with ADHD sitting still, focused on math, for the entire hour. Truly amazing. In this first lesson, he covered a variety of material to assess her knowledge and asked personalized questions to identify her strengths and weaknesses. He will be invaluable in assisting our child.

Marni, 25 lessons with Pete

The greatest and most patient tutor in the world.

Pete has the patience and the competence to teach the subject matter. I have chosen him because he surely could help me and provide me everything that I need from a tutor.
