Personal Statement

Hello !

My name is Peter. I am currently a first year medical student, and I graduated from UCSD with a Bachelor?s degree in Human Biology major and Psychology minor. I love and enjoy talking about all sciences and share my knowledge with other aspiring students. I have taken the MCAT and scored in the 90th percentile.

I have been a tutor for the past 4 years. I began my tutoring journey at my local community college where I was a TA for General chemistry. I loved seeing students benefit f...


Peter helped me better understand concepts of second semester general chemistry stuff; mainly involving solving for much of the different types of equilibrium constants. I had sent him a bunch of practice problems from class and he had solved them all before meeting up with me, which shows how prepared he comes for any session! He cleared up a lot of confusion I had with certain problems. He was even willing to stay to help longer when I needed him to. I am SO appreciative of his help and I?m sure I will continue to work with him as long as needed! He?s super patient, explains things well, and wants to make sure you end up with a strong understanding.

Peter was very prepared and took a real interest in my son. Peter had a whole lesson prepared. We will definitely be using him again as my son said he was very helpful.

Peter tutors my son for AP Biology. My son wasn't fond of biology, but he wanted to study for the AP exam anyways. After the first session with Peter, he told me, "AP biology is fun, mom!" Peter was well-prepared for the lesson and was able to answer all of my son's questions clearly. Now my son is excited to learn more - I couldn't have asked for a better tutor than Peter! He is professional and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend Peter.

Peter promptly responded to our initial inquiries to coordinate an online session. He was able to accommodate for a last minute session. My daughter learned a good amount of information during her review session with him. He was courteous, knowledgeable and made the session interactive.

Peter is very supportive and really knows how to teach. He is different from any other tutor I have had on Wyzant so far; he prepares materials/notes outside of class and thoroughly explains all the concepts and doesn't mind repeating himself when I don't understand something. His drawings are super detailed and allow me to connect concepts with tangible diagrams. Furthermore, Peter has been super flexible with his time schedule and really cares about teaching. My experience with Peter has been great so far - hope to continue more sessions in the future. Peter is a must-have tutor for anyone studying Biology.

Peter made many things clear in our one session such as which element groups form covalent bonds and which form ionic, understanding how compounds dissociate in water, and many other things in a short amount of time. There's a lot I still need to learn but Peter was very patient and engaged, and made me feel like a partner in my learning.

Peter did an excellent job reviewing the material in my upcoming test. He gave me some helpful tips to understand acid-base chemistry and thermodynamics. He is very patient, kind and wanted to make sure that I understood the material before we ended the session. I look forward to more sessions with Peter!

Peter was amazing he helped me understand so much material in a remarkable time span. Peter was very patient and kind with his explanations. Peter has so much information regarding biochemistry that every topic we did he did he had the solution to. I would recommend Peter to those in need of biochemistry help.
- Hodo H. from San Diego, CA
Peter was great. He was very generous, patient, and very knowledgeable. He even takes time out of sessions to do some more research and help. Ten out of ten, would recommend for any of the subjects he specializes in - you won?t regret it!

Peter was very patient with all the material he was teaching me. He had no problem going over all the slides from my Physiology lecture!! You could tell he loves Physiology because he had an answer for all my questions.
