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...
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.

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
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!
- AJ J. from San Francisco, CA
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.
- Todd V. from Greenville, NC
Peter is an amazing teacher. His experience and knowledge is vast and has an amazing approach during which he tries to explain not only the specific issue but the in-depth knowledge required to truly understand the subject.
- Marek N. from New York, NY
Peter is a fantastic tutor. I've only been tutoring with him for a couple of months in Linear Algebra, but I will certainly use him in the fall for my data science classes. He is very good at making sure that you understand the material beyond just knowing how to do problems, and challenges you to think about the concepts. He also makes the material feel relevant as to why you need to learn it for future classes, and your career. He is also very personable, and makes it fun to learn the material. I would certainly recommend Peter to anyone!
- Ted H. from Chapel Hill, NC
My son was quite amazed at just how much he learned in one session and how interesting the entire session was. He is very happy that he has found a tutor who exactly suits his learning style and needs! He is looking forward to his next lesson.
- Jeyabarathi C. from Princeton Junction, NJ
Peter is working with me on statistical analysis in R- he is helping me learn R by patiently guiding me through the commands via shared screen and is providing statistical learning lessons along the way. Would highly recommend Peter.
- Nick R. from New York, NY
Out of around ten tutors I contacted, only Peter was able to help solve a tough statistics problem set. He responded fast to my queries and patiently explained each and every step of solving it.
- Dileep N. from Fremont, CA
Peter's deep grasp of machine learning and data science is inspiring to be in proximity to. I'm extremely glad to have found him to tutor me in the fundamentals of machine Learning, having not had formal training in it before. He recommend we use 'Learning from Data' by Caltech Professor Yaser Abu-Mostafa, and it has been superb.
- Chris C. from San Francisco, CA
Peter did a great job in explaining concepts and recognizes the limited time student has with all the tests and projects etc. He gets to the problem sets very quickly.
- Ram A. from Ann Arbor, MI
Peter is clearly highly educated and knowledgeable. He also listened carefully, came well-prepared, and individualized the session to provide exactly what was needed. This flexibility and insight into both subject and learning style was much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
- Elizabeth W. from Andover, MA
Peter makes super difficult topics super easy to understand. I'd recommend him to anyone. He's great! He's helping me with graduate level Bayesian Statistics.
