The mathematics tutors at Veritas have not only demonstrated their success in Mathematics by completing advanced coursework in the subject, they have also had to demonstrate their ability to teach these subjects through a rigorous interview and continual evaluation. We have tutors prepared to help in every field of mathematics and quantitative analysis offered at the high school and college levels. Our tutors begin by assessing each student's unique learning styles and adjust their approach to the tutoring accordingly. Whether the student is learning the difference between different types of numbers or is doing complex mathematical modeling, we have mentors who are skilled at making these concepts accessible to their students. Our tutors are also very familiar with common standardized subject tests such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and the SAT II’s and help their students learn how to master not only their subjects and their classes but also these often tricky exams that can determine college course placement and credit.

Peter graduated magna cum laude from Cornell University (class of 2011). His official major was in chemistry but he was only a few courses away from majors in math and physics. After getting accepted to every PhD program he applied to, Peter now happily resides at MIT. He works with Professor Arup Chakraborty at the interesection of physics, chemistry and biology to apply models from statistical mechanics and machine learning to discover new methods in computational immunology. Peter has always loved teaching. He tutored Organic Chemistry at Cornell, and enjoyed a full year of TAing at MIT in general chemistry and bioengineering.
- Graduated Magna Cum Laude (Cornell)
- Phi Beta Kappa (Junior/Senior year)
- National Merit Semifinalist
- Graduate student at MIT
