About Peter


Bio

I have been a teacher of AP Chemistry, Physics and Biology at some of the nation's best private schools for 30 years. Previous employers include both Baylor and McCallie Schools in Chattanooga, TN for a combined total of 19 years. Over the course of my career, my AP students have averaged 4.8+ on their AP exams as 90% of them have scored 5s. Only one student in 30 years has scored a 3 (none lower).

Two dozen of my chemistry students have regularly made the top twenty in the nation on the ACS chemistry Olympiad. Two have placed 1st and 2nd in the country, later placing 5th and 6th in the world in the international competition. If you want a very experienced instructor to prepare you well in any subject, if you bring the motivation, I'll deliver the results you seek.

Thorough and explained things very well

He was very patient and thorough, and efficiently covered the all of the topics I needed review on to get caught up to my class.

Phenomenal!

Peter was on time, ready to teach and didn't waste a minute. He arrived with sample test questions and used his laptop as a visual aid to supplement his teaching. My daughter has a passion for chemistry but was getting very discouraged with her AP Chemistry teacher's method of teaching. Peter was able to break things down in a way that brought chemistry back to life for her. On our way to the car after the session, she said "I'm back!" I could not ask for better results than that.

Excellent tutor

Peter did an excellent job!!! My son had never had tutoring before and wasn't sure this would help. This first session confirmed that it would more than help. My son actually thanked me for finding Peter M.
