Perhaps I can help!

I am a math/statistics/physics/data science/software development tutor based in Portland ME and Cambridge MA. If you are in greater Portland or greater Boston, please consider me for help with math from the basics to calculus to beginning and advanced statistics, ODE/PDEs, linear algebra, time series analysis or any other topic of applied math. I can help with high school or college level physics (I have a PhD in physics), general data science (I've made a career develo...
Great knowledge of probability, statistics, advanced mathematics, programming, data analysis, data science and more! Patient with effective teaching style. Deserving of highest recommendation. You should go ahead and hire him!

As a beginner with R, I was struggling a bit with creating complex functions. I understood how to make simple ones (converting cm to inches, for example), but I couldn't get complex, multi-step functions to work. In an hour and 15 minutes, Peter not only helped me complete the assignment that troubled me, but also helped me understand what I was doing wrong and showed me some neat tricks to debug my code when I have problems I don't understand in the future. I would recommend Peter's services to anyone who is struggling with R.
- Daniel B. from Allentown, PA
Peter helped me go over my cluster analysis and really helped me to better understand the process and results. We also had a great conversation on future academic paths and opportunities. I'd highly recommend Peter as a tutor and advisor.
- John D. from Kamas, UT
Peter demonstrates the intuition behind concepts. Solving becomes simpler when Peter is providing foundational knowledge. He helped me with my graduate school coursework on Bayesian Statistics.
- Anne B. from Los Angeles, CA
Peter has great command of the material but just as important he knows how to take complicated concepts and put them into easier to understand layman's terms.
- Michael P. from Dedham, MA
Peter is extremely knowledgeable with the subject. Very patiently, step-by-step he worked through each problem. He understood the urgency of the situation and made time the very next day. Just to have a tutor who is proficient is very reassuring. Very methodical and makes the student understand the concepts. Highly recommended.
- Jeena P. from Mc Lean, VA
Peter is my go-to guy for data science; he provides clear explanations and is very responsive. He is very well versed in both R and Python. Highly recommended!
- Simran S. from Valley Stream, NY
Quant. Peter L. is the best tutors I have ever had. I learn so much, thanks to him! He is patient and understandable. He has so much knowledge and experience. What a brave person. I am so pleased I got to know him!
- Katherine E. from New Haven, CT
I?m a Master?s international student who never had an Econometrics course before. I have struggled with the course for a while as the course?s pace was too fast for me. I met Peter twice before my midterm and he actually explained almost the entire course in two sessions! He illustrated the concepts in real life easy to understand examples. He was patient, understanding, and he was also funny. Thanks to Peter, I actually got an A+ on my midterm!
- Bashera A. from Brighton, MA
Peter helped me with Econometrics, he helped me by providing answers to my questions both by words and numbers, so I have more options to absorb the material that way.
- Rafael G. from Arlington, VA
I was taking an exceedingly difficult Partial Differential Equations class for the undergraduate-level. I started off with some other tutors which got me through most of the course, but when we started covering Fourier Transforms and Green's Functions to solve PDE's, I had to turn elsewhere for help due to the time constraints on the homeworks. I found Dr. L. and he was able to help me quickly and even offer some insight into the methods involved. After purchasing the book, he was able to help me within 1-2 days time of any request and got me through most of the problems each time we met. The one time we did not have a good session (because we met very late and he had had a long day), he waived it off as a free lesson instead. It was a very tough course but Dr. L. helped me get through the toughest parts of it, so I highly recommend him for anyone else struggling through PDEs or classes of similar difficulty.
- Justin S. from Athens, GA
Peter was very helpful in tutoring me with expectational-maximization in theory and in R. He was prompt to respond, thorough in his explanation of the concepts, and patient and kind in his teaching methods. I highly recommend Peter!!
- Alli D. from Cleveland, OH
Fantastic tutor, Dr. Leopold really explains concepts well and has a unique and understandable approach to topics in linear algebra. Extremely helpful, friendly and dedicated. Highly recommended for both beginner and advanced learners.
- Steven Z. from Roslyn, NY
Peter is highly intuitive, beyond general knowledge and able to quickly adapt to my current level of understanding, and was quickly able to provide valuable insight to the questions I had. Very much enjoyed working through all assignments with him. He easily filled the void I needed, and provided explanations I could translate in order to progress successfully with my classes. I will continue to work with Peter for the rest of this class and any future needs! Thank you so much Peter! You are a life-saver!
- Andriana F. from Portland, OR
I was well down my path and struggling with a few concepts. Peter did a great job of not giving me the answer but giving me a better understanding and putting me on a path to not just get me through the assignment but a better fundamental understanding of what I was trying to do.
- Clayton B. from Lehi, UT
I had a wonderful session with Peter. He is great. We went over how to model using R step by step. His explanations were very clear. If I have more questions about statistics, I will definitely contact him again.
- Young J. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
Peter has taken extra care in framing concepts in a way which is easy for me to understand, and more importantly, helps me bridge the gap between concepts I don't understand and being able to ask and learn more. This is the sign of a talented instructor: being able to lucidly illustrate concepts in a way that is clear to a student's unique understanding. Peter does this easily, and is my becoming my go-to instructor for learning the ins and outs of this field (though I'm still just scratching the surface). Highly recommended.
- Forrest W. from Seattle, WA
Peter is firstly a very kind person which is always a huge plus! It makes the work that much more pleasant and it makes learning material which is difficult much less intimidating. He has a really deep knowledge of statistics and let me ask all the "why's" I needed to understand the concepts in depth. Definitely experienced and has a broad understanding in addition to patient and kind. I would highly recommend to choose Peter for your statistics questions!
- Margo M. from Somerville, MA
Peter was very knowledgeable and was very patient in explaining the topic. He broke the information down piece by piece and made it to where I could understand the information. He is very friendly and I would recommend him.
- Nicole F. from East Greenwich, RI
The guy is an expert. (Period) He's able to unpack any machine learning concept I've thrown at him. He's happy explain any part of a concept, on a dime. I look forward to learning more just so I can upgrade the quality of questions! There's your 160 words Wyzant.
