Communication with both the student and the parent are both important in this process. We found Peter to be exceptional with both of these needs.
Peter set expectations from the first introduction and exceeded them at each step along the way. He was timely and accommodative in the session and provided meaningful feedback. It was a very professional experience from a parent's perspective and an experience with meaningful results from my daughter's perspective.
Peter is very much an excellent choice.

Greg is a wonderful teacher, patient, easy-going and very knowledgeable in this subject. In 3 sessions last weekend lasting about 5 hours total, he raised my grade from a sure Fail to a B-C+. I will see him as needed all semester and maybe for other chem courses in the future. He is a real find!
