I offer (as with for all my courses) the unique Oxford University tutoring style for the GRE, which is one of my most popular tutoring subjects. My experience over the last 10 years is that most GRE students are accomplished in the arts, but have difficulty with mathematical analysis. I am always pleased to be able to help anyone who is ready to commit to succeed.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Dr. K Is a very competent and effective Tutor. I would not hesitate to recommend him for anyone seeking Math tutoring for their Middle or High school child. Although I am quite certain his Math capabilities would be very useful to those students who have a more advanced understanding of Math at a much higher level. Dr. K is dependable and very punctual. He was very diligent at keeping us very informed on the weekly progress of the tutoring sessions. We would highly recommend Dr. K to anyone in the area seeking help with their child's Math studies.

Very helpful

Dr. Peter was very helpful in offering different explanations. If there were something I didn't understand, he would help me examine it from different angles in order to come to a solution. Very patient, tried to help me come to the solution on my own rather than just giving it to me.

Professional Expert Tutor

Dr. K is a professional tutor. He incorporates his personal work, and life experiences into his teachings. He has a professional background in mathematics, and physics. As well, he holds a doctorate this subject. Personally, he helped me attain very high marks in both Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 (Calculus A and B). Collectively, I attained an "A" average for both courses. I received a 3.75 gpa in my college math. Individually, I was never fond of mathematics, but his tutoring sessions helped me enjoy math, and value its applications into my daily life. I would recommend him anyday as a tutor, and highly respect his professional teaching attitude!

Great, hardworking tutor with lots of patience

Peter is very hardworking and willing to go the extra mile to help his students. He also does a great job of explaining the concepts behind Calculus, which I found immensely helpful. I would definitely recommend Peter to other students!

One Excellent Tutor!!!

I have taken the GRE exam several times. The highest quantitative score I achieved on my own was in the 37th percentile, and this was after spending hours of studying for several months. With only two weeks of Dr. Peter's tutoring, I scored in the 64th percentile. Not only did he help me to understand the more complex problems, he corrected my approach which helped me to become a more efficient problem solver. Dr. K is very professional and reasonable with his time. In regards to the GRE quant section, Dr. K tutoring was money well spent!

The best!

I highly recommend Dr. Peter to anyone in need of an advanced math tutor. My daughter joined an AP Calculus AB class 6 weeks after the class had started. Dr. Peter was not only able to assist her in catching up, but he helped her to master the material. Up until working with Dr. Peter, my daughter's advanced math classes were the ones she dreaded, now she is confident and excited to take on AP Calculus BC. Dr. Peter is knowledgeable, kind, and patient, and at the same time pushes his students to work hard and reach beyond their comfort level. My highest recommendation and gratitude to Dr. Peter, a gifted teacher!

Intelligent, patient, and articulate

I came to Dr. Peter K for tutoring in the quantitative section of the GRE. I had previously taken the GRE twice, but scored only in the 56th percentile. However, my goal was to obtain a score at least in the 80th percentile. Dr. K was very good at analyzing where I was mathematically and recommending steps to take to become more proficient. And when I made mistakes, he was very good at explaining where I went wrong and how to go about answering the question. What he excels at is both telling you the mathematics and the strategy of the GRE. When I started, I was getting about half of the practice problems wrong. By the time we finished several weeks later, I was only missing one or two problems per practice test. This improvement was very noticeable and we finished our sessions early to account for my growing proficiency with the quantitative questions. Most of the work we did was using the ETS GRE book. We mainly did practice test problems. If you have trouble understanding why you get practice test questions wrong, or you just don't know how to approach the problems, I would definitely recommend Dr. K to you.

Excellent Turor

My son feels he is well prepared for Calculus this year! Thank you so much for working with him this summer.

Lu Ann, 8 lessons with Dr Peter

Excellent tutor!

Dr. K tutored my son for math SATs, including the SAT subject test, as well as AP Calculus. Dr. K is an excellent tutor who my son thoroughly enjoyed working with. Dr. K was able to present complex ideas in a way my son could easily comprehend. He helped him build a very solid basis in math and then walked him through advanced math subjects. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. K as a very reliable and excellent tutor. I know we will go back to him without hesitation.
