Stephen P. helps me understand concepts on a deeper level than simple memorization. He makes me really learn to understand the information and connect it to previous things I've learned. He's taught me the bigger picture of physiology and he applies each individual concept to a bigger understanding of WHY something would happen how it does rather than just teaching me that something happens. This lesson, he talked me through a multitude of practice questions that he prepared and we discussed each answer in depth together. Then at the end of the lesson, he let me take the questions home in order to use them as yet another study tool for the test. He is a great tutor and has helped me raise my grade in my physiology class from a 61% (on the first test) to an 88% on the second, and I know I'll do even better on the third test and the final because I truly understand the inner-workings of the material now.
I would recommend Stephen P. to anyone even remotely struggling in anatomy & physiology.

"Art enthusiast "
After I graduated from college I taught art classes at Camp Med-O-Lark, a summer camp in Maine. There I worked mostly with students aging from 11-15. I absolutely loved my job and thought it was amazing how quickly students learned and grew individually.
Since then I have been working as a nanny watching younger children. With them I help with homework and do art projects. I still read, write poetry and paint when I am not at work and find every opportunity I can to go look at artwork in ... ... More

"Experienced Teacher and Jeopardy Contestant Specializing in Writing"
I'm a career changer--from publishing to middle school teacher--and the idea to become a teacher came to me after my experience of volunteer tutoring. From my first day at the center, I loved the personal interaction with students and the feeling that I could share some of knowledge and myself with my students. Now I get to do that every day, and I enjoy it so much I still want to tutor individually!
The majority of my teaching/tutoring experience involves English literature and writing, sk... ... More
Peter tutored my son as he was preparing to take college entrance exams. My son has a tendency to clam up when taking these tests. Peter was very patient and taught him test taking techniques that will follow him through his college years as well. Not only did Peter tutor, but he mentored him as well. Peter is very accessible and provides excellent feedback in the appropriate time frame. My son has really enjoyed working with him and I will keep him in mind for future tutorial needs!
