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...

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.

Great!

Elena indicated you were very helpful and was a great session. Really appreciate it and in person attention much appreciated. Thanks!

Elena, 1 lesson with Peter

Great to work with!

Peter was great to work with! Not only was he exceptional in his knowledge of all aspects of math, he was also very personable and approachable. He was able to explain things in a way that was easy to understand. I would recommend him highly!

Lynne , 1 lesson with Peter

Simply the BEST!!!!!

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!!!

James, 84 lessons with Peter

Will never want to be tutored by anybody else!

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.

Julia, 5 lessons with Peter

Awesome tutor

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.

Brian, 8 lessons with Peter

Fantastic tutor!

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.

Stephan, 86 lessons with Peter

Want to continue with Peter

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.

Stefan, 2 lessons with Peter

Great tutor!

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.

Patrick, 30 lessons with Peter

Teaches topic not just to the test

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.
