About Peter

Looking for a smart, engaging, effective tutor who loves helping students reach their potential? Look no further!

I specialize in test prep (LSAT, ACT, SAT, and more) and math (Algebra 1 and up). I have tutored other subjects like chemistry and physics as well, and am willing to work on any subject I'm confident I can help with.

As a student myself, I have had great success with both coursework and standardized testing, including: perfect (1600) SAT, 35 ACT, 173 LSAT, 4.3 high school GPA, 3.96 undergraduate GPA, and multiple 5s on AP tests. I have a proven track record of applying that experience to boost both students' test scores and their true understanding of the material.

I have helped dozens of students succeed both in person and online. I have 3 years of classroom teaching experience along with 6 years of tutoring experience, both in a range of environments with a range of student backgrounds and abilities.

My approach centers around encouraging students to share what they already know and build on that knowledge. Even if they think they don't know much, I ask them to speculate and refine their knowledge from that point. This approach helps with increase confidence, highlight and correct errors and weaknesses in understanding, and build true mastery -- and a feeling of mastery -- of the material.

I am also a firm believer in learning by doing -- natural for mathematics, of course, where we can work through problem sets. That approach takes on slightly different forms with other subjects, but always centers around the student leading the work, with me assisting and supporting.

I look forward to building your success together!

Helped me tremendously

After taking the GMAT and doing poorly on the quantitative section, I had just two months to improve before retaking it. I contacted Peter and immediately felt comfortable that he could help me. He is knowledgeable about math but more importantly, a very good and encouraging teacher. After each session, I was more confident and felt my skills were improving. I'm happy to say my GMAT score went up
