About Pete


Bio

My first love is helping people learn SQL and PL/SQL. I have been teaching SQL and PL/SQL for over 30 years! I love it so much, I wrote 2 books on Oracle SQL. I was Oracle Corporation's NUMBER ONE USA INSTRUCTOR one year, and the MOST HELPFUL instructor another. Let me help you with your college project. I am certified as an Oracle SQL and PL/SQL Developer, as well as OCP DBA, and wrote the tuning portion of Oracle's very first certification exam. I have also tutored students using MySQL,...

I am certified as an Oracle SQL and PL/SQL Developer, as well as OCP DBA, and wrote the tuning portion of Oracle's very first certification exam. I have also tutored students using MySQL, SQLServer, and PostGreSQL.

My second love is MATH. Let me help you master ALGEBRA, and elevate your MATH SAT scores! I recently had a student score a perfect score on the SAT math section! I will use my 8 years of experience as a High School and Middle School Math Teacher to help you develop strategies, and learn what to expect on tests. I love math, and hope through working with me, you will love it too! I have helped many 6th graders - 12th graders with math and Algebra. I really LOVE ALGEBRA.

Whether it's MATH or ORACLE, I will help you improve your grades, scores, and proficiency using my years of teaching experience, and create a fun environment while doing so.

I encourage you to read what my students say.

Comprehensive Oracle knowledge and great teaching style

Pete explained the queries we were working on in a way that made it understandable. He has comprehensive Oracle knowledge - he wrote the book on Oracle (literally!). Look forward to working with Pete again.

Great Lesson

Pete taught me my first song and it was perfect for my level of a very new beginner to the ukulele. I will be practicing what he taught me and hope to nail the song down soon!

Jessica, 1 lesson with Pete

Patient and supportive tutor.

Pete helped introduce me to the ukulele. He was very generous with his knowledge and worked extra hard outside of sessions to be able to teach me a song I wanted to learn. He is easy to get along with and fun to learn from. Thank you, Pete!

Kevin, 3 lessons with Pete

Patient and knowledgeable teacher

We went over prealgebra (angles relationships) topics, they did practice some questions and Pete helped my daughter to prepare for upcoming test. I highly recommend this tutor.

Highly recommend

Pete has been helping me with SQL he is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and is a fantastic tutor. He has helped me grasp the concepts behind the code as well as the actual coding. I am so thankful and lucky that I found him. Ya'll could not do better.

Claudia, 2 lessons with Pete

Best tutor ever, very knowledgeable.

PETE C. Is a great teacher, he is very patient and professional. I wish all my college Professors can teach like him. Easy to follow. He explained terminologies in the simplest forms that can not be forgotten. Pete helped me in understanding the foundation of SQL better in just one class. Thank you Pete.

Ashley, 1 lesson with Pete

passionate and prepared

Pete is very passionate about the Ukulele and this shown through. I enjoyed talking to someone who loves the Uke as much as I. He also showed up for our lesson prepared. I appreciate that! He taught me about transposing which I hadn't heard of before. He is also very resourceful, and I left with lot's of information I could use on my learning journey.

Knowledgeable and explains things in an easy to understand way

Pete helped me trouble shoot many tough areas that I likely wouldn't have gotten through without his help. Very knowledgeable, very patient, couldn't recommend more!

SQL Database programming

Pete helped me learned SQL database programming. I've had a lot of sessions with him throughout the summer. He was very kind and patient with me as I was trying to grasp the subject. I was also able to raise my grade in the course. Thank you so much Pete for your help! I wouldn't have made it without you! I've tried other tutors on here;however, Pete is the best tutor on Wyzant for SQL, for sure! Hands down! See you next year! P.S I won't be dropping any tables anytime soon. lol
