About Pete

Greetings and thanks for taking the time to visit my profile. I realize that hiring a tutor represents a significant investment of time, trust, and treasure, so I am honored that you are considering me.

I graduated as valedictorian of my high school class with all 'A's. I then went on to college and graduated cum laude with a double major in math and computer science. Following college, I spent 20 years in industry as a computer consultant, real estate agent and now math tutor.

But frankly, my success in high school, college or career has little bearing on your current academic situation because I cannot take the tests for you. What is relevant is my ability to take my successful attitude, approach and study habits and transfer them to you.

My upbeat, can-do attitude is contagious. My one-on-one approach allows me to zoom in on challenge areas and creatively develop keys that open up the doors of understanding. And my study habits are all about repetition - we do the math together until it makes sense and becomes second nature for you.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I bring a great deal of problem-solving experience to the table due to my college math degree, consulting career and diverse tutoring experience. In addition, I find that success on college prep exams requires a combination of aptitude, time management, and strategy. I work with the student to identify and shore up their knowledge gaps, increase their time awareness and improve their tactical approach.

Algebra 1

I have had strong study skills throughout my educational career. While in college, I tutored students in the math lab across multiple subjects. Since college, I have taught or tutored students in Advanced Placement Calculus, Algebra and Geometry.

Algebra 2

One of my college degrees is in Mathematics. While in college, I tutored students in the math lab across multiple subjects. Since college, I have taught or tutored students in Advanced Placement Calculus, Algebra, Honors Algebra, Geometry and Statistics.

Geometry

Geometry was my favorite in high school. I believe my excitement for the subject becomes contagious. Oftentimes there are multiple ways of looking at the same problem. Once we find the one that works best for you, it's just a matter of repetition until it sticks!

Probability

What are the odds? Wanna bet? With a strong math background, these are the types of questions that intrigue me. In addition to thoroughly enjoying my statistics and probability courses in college, I have also informally analyzed the numbers behind (1) horse-racing, (2) blackjack and (3) Texas Hold'em. Therefore, I bring real-life examples to the table when tutoring these subjects.

SAT Math

Due to my college math degree, consulting career and diverse tutoring experience, I bring a broad spectrum of support to the Math SAT. In addition, I find that success on college prep exams requires a combination of aptitude, time management and strategy. I work with the student to identify and shore up their knowledge gaps, increase their time awareness and improve their tactical approach.

Statistics

I have taken multiple courses in Statistics. My experience here includes tutoring at both the high school AP and advance college degree levels. I thoroughly enjoy this subject because it involves working with actual numbers and solving real-world problems.

Great match

My 13 year old son really clicked with Pete. He didn't "talk down" to my son, who already feels bad about having failing grade in Algebra I. Pete was prompt, friendly...all around a great experience.
