My experience in tutoring spans a wide variety of subjects and disciplines. I have degrees in Biology and Mathematics and am comfortable teaching any and all of the subjects in both science and math.
I have personally tutored everything from Algebra to Advanced Calculus and English to AP Biology and everything in between. I also have experience teaching to the SAT and ACT, and my scores on these exams reflect my understanding and ability to convey not only the test subjects, but test strategies as well. I scored 800 on the Math section of the SAT, and a 34 for my overall ACT score. I have also recently passed the Praxis II Exam in Math Content Knowledge while earning Recognition of Excellence for scoring in the top 15 percent over the last 5 years. I am currently teaching math full-time, and have access to myriad resources in Geometry, Algebra and Calculus and any other math course offered in high school.
My most valuable quality, however, is my ability to relate to students of all ages, and to make even the most difficult subjects easily understood.

A few lessons in and Peter is on track, on time, diligent and knowledgeable. He connects well with the student and therefore encourages learning and commitment.
I cant stress how great of a tutor Peter is. He is extremely knowledgeable and very patient in dealing with my son. I have Peter helping with both Math and Science and my sons understanding and grades are in tip top shape. 100% would recommend Peter!!!
This summer, the only way I was able to successfully get through my online college statistics course was with Peter's patient demeanor and support. He is very flexible and would always go out of his way to make sure I truly understood the subject matter. Peter is very knowledgeable about many subjects, and had a way of making such a dry class more engaging and enjoyable to learn about. He is clearly passionate about his students, and cares about their successes. Without Peter, I do not believe I would have been able to stick with such a rigorous course load during the summer months (especially online), and he gave me the confidence and ability to not only stick with it, but pass with flying colors! I cannot recommend Peter enough, and could easily go on and on as to how grateful I am for his patience, intelligence, effective teaching style, reliance, sense of humor, flexibility, and overall assistance.
Peter made huge progress with my son over 2 months. From averaging 23 in ACT practice tests to averaging 29 in such a short time. We owe a lot to Peter.
Fantastic, calm, and patient tutor. Took one look at my recent tests taken, and showed me how to make sense of it fairly easily. Would definitely recommend.
Peter came on time and started working on schoolwork my son. My son was not keen on having a tutor. They did hit it off and he wants to continue with Peter. At this point I need to see improvement to make a full assessment.
I had to take a college level calculus 2 course and I started struggling so I went with Peter for tutoring after hearing about him from a friend. He communicated the material extremely well and made even the most difficult material easily understood. He works through the material quickly and thoroughly so you get your times worth. Ended up with a strong B in the class.
Peter is a patient teacher who has helped my son understand chemistry concepts. Since tutoring with Peter, his grades have increased from C-B to A-B. But most importantly he likes chemistry.
We've only had one session so far, but it was excellent. My daughter said he was very helpful and really knows how to explain things clearly.
Definitely a 5+ star tutor. Very knowledgeable, knows his stuff, and knows how to translate so you understand. If he explains one way and you let him know you don't get it or he sees your face you don't understand he'll explain it another. Very patient and helped me a lot when he tutored me. I highly recommend Peter.
Peter has been helping my son with his Geometry. He has been extremely flexible in terms of scheduling, and always prompt. More importantly, my son's grades have dramatically improved since working with Peter. I always ask my son how each meeting went, and he always responds that he's learned a lot from Peter and that he's thoroughly prepared for the next test. And his grades are proof of this. Thanks, Peter!
Peter was just an awesome tutor for my son! This is an excellent service with excellent results! Thanks WyzAnt!
Thanks to Peter, my son is far ahead of schedule. Peter is an excellent tutor and my son is working well with him and actually enjoying the lessons.
He is excellent at communicating the concepts to my son. We are very happy to be working with Peter.
Peter B. has been a huge help to my son in Geometry. We have seen an improvement in his understanding of Geometry and his confidence level. Peter has been working with our son for a few weeks now and we have setup a weekly schedule. Peter and WyzAnt are easy to work with and schedule times.
Peter has been working with my daughter for 3 weeks and has seen improvements in her test taking. I am confident with his help she will be able to obtain a better score on the PSATs coming up and the SATs in the spring.
Peter is very knowledgeable on various subjects and he knows how to reach kids. He makes my son laugh and learn at the same time! He is always easy to reach and is flexible with times. Peter makes studying even the hardest subjects fun and is light-hearted and kind. He taught my son so much this year and helped him to feel confident going into tests.
My son's first session with Peter was great. Peter helped my son prepare for an upcoming quiz. He relates very well with the young athletes.
Peter has been a great tutor for my son. Brilliant mind, friendly easygoing style and he has an ability to explain things in a way that turns the lights on - a lot of "aha" moments. I highly recommend him.
Peter is able to explain complex concepts clearly and quickly. His sessions with my son are highly productive. We have used him for both chemistry and math and Peter deftly moves from one subject to the other, easily adapting to my son's needs. After only one session with Peter my son "aced" his next chemistry quiz, a subject he has been struggling with all year. My wife keeps asking me "why did we wait so long." I agree with her sentiments 100%.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
My Major in Undergrad, one of my strongest subjects to teach, although it is highly dependent on the student reading and keeping up outside of lessons
I have over 5 years of experience tutoring Chemistry from elementary levels, through AP and college courses. I have especially helped students over the summer to prepare for their upcoming courses to familiarize themselves with the subject beforehand.
I am able to proofread and edit essays, book reports and written projects, as well as help with grammar, usage and vocabulary, although I find that students must be proficient in keeping up with their work outside of lessons as well in order to be successful.
I have tutored 20+ students over the last 5 years in Physics, focusing almost exclusively on Honors and AP level classes.
I have tutored 10+ students in Pre-Algebra over the last 5 years, and possess a supreme mastery of the pedagogy and content of the subject.
I have helped 25+ students prepare for the SAT Math section, as well as the Subject tests, over the last 5 years. I have seen unilateral improvements in scores for every student I have helped.
I have helped 25+ students prepare for the SAT Reading Section. I am especially adept at individualizing the strategies taught by the major tutoring houses for the SAT to fit your child's particular strengths and weaknesses. I have seen unilateral improvements in scores for every student I have helped.
I have tutored 15+ students in Statistics over the last 5 years, focusing mainly on College-Level Stats and AP Stats for high school students.
I have extensive experience with vocabulary of all types, and am especially effective in passing on the techniques that translate to retaining words and definitions most effectively.
