Hi, I'm Peter! I am a certified middle school math teacher who is currently teaching on the island of Islesboro, Maine. I have taught every subject in middle school throughout the course of my 10 year career but have the most experience with social studies and math. I've tutored from 5th grade math to pre-algebra here on Wyzant.

I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to.

Please reach out if you think I'd be a good fit. I have an easy going and relaxed tutoring style that makes my students feel confident to ask questions and be themselves. I look forward to hearing from you!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Peter is an excellent teacher for my son who struggles with comprehension. That applies to multiple assignments in social studies and also very helpful in math area. My son feels more confident to turn in the school work because online learning is very challenging for him. Thank you Peter!

Knowledgable, prepared and skillful!

It was great working with Peter! He was always prepared to review concepts using multiple methods to ensure comprehension and created a relaxed atmosphere for learning with his patience and humor. My daughter really felt confident that she knew the material for class and her improved test scores were evidence of the value of the tutoring sessions. So glad we worked with Peter!

Great tutor

Peter is very patient with our 5th grade son, Alex. In the 2 months he has been helping Alex, we can see that Alex is more confident in math and now looks forward to math rather than dreads it. Peter gives us great feedback on how Alex is doing and is very flexible with regards to scheduling.

Very patient and approachable tutor for senior struggling with basics

Peter has been assisting our student, a senior in high school, with a review of the basics in math for nearly three months now. Our student loves his time with Peter who is patient and nonjudgmental when it comes to our student's struggles. Our student looks forward to his lessons with Peter and has come to look up to his tutor. We are grateful for his help and feedback.
