Peter was an excellent tutor. I had him help me prepare for the SAT. He showed me all the tricks there are to get the highest score possible. It took a few tries to set up an appointment with him unfortunately. Overall, I would give him four out of five stars, he is very nice and tolerant, but it is difficult to schedule appointments with him.

"Top-Tier SAT/ACT | GRE/GMAT | SSAT/ISEE"
I have been a full-time tutor for about 2 years now, almost exclusively focused on standardized test prep. In many ways the ISEE and SSAT are miniaturized versions of the ACT and SAT, which were the first two tests I taught.

Even scores in the Mathematics Achievement section can be improved by adopting test-taking strategies that students will use again when they take the SAT and/or ACT, as well as ... More

I had a great experience with John. He actually explained every line to me in Python, and seemed to know what he was doing. He is amazingly patient as well, and a cat lover, which is a bonus. He is also from Harvard, which is a plus.

"Stanford Engineer For CS, Coding Interviews, SATs/ACTs, college apps"
Hello parents and students,
My name is Simon and I am a software engineer at Peloton Cycle (and have previously worked at places like LinkedIn, Bloomberg, and Palantir). I tutor because I enjoy simplifying complex concepts and I love seeing the "aha!" moment when a student makes a breakthrough in understanding a new difficult concept. Too often, we tell ourselves that we're "not math people" or "aren't engineers" or "aren't smart enough" and I enjoy challenging those negative ideas. I prima... ... More
