Chess,

Chess

I have been playing chess since the age of 8 and have participated in multiple tournaments, gaining a medal in one of them. I mostly play online, focusing my time on building new tactics in various chess apps. I have the knowledge to teach a beginner and an intermediate fundamentals as well as tips and tricks about the game. Would not feel comfortable teaching an advanced player, but then again, I'm not sure why they would want a lesson in chess...
Table Tennis

Table Tennis

I have been playing table tennis for the past 10+ years of my life. We have a table at my childhood home and would play competitively with my Dad and siblings, as well as friends. I made it to the semifinals in an all school tournament in middle school (did not advance because I was sick for the semifinal round; lost by default). I am an avid watcher of Olympic table tennis, gaining strategy and expertise in the mental side of the sport.

Great guy and great tutor

Peter tutored our son for a few weeks this summer for a college math placement exam. Peter is a very talented, well-rounded and likable guy. Our son is not a very motivated student, but Peter's calm, friendly and confident tutoring style was a great fit, and got the most out of our son. Overall, Peter was an excellent tutor. We would definitely use him again, and would highly recommend him to anyone.
