How have you represented PTP? I think I’ve represented Peer tutoring pretty well. When I’m not tutoring, I’m usually preparing for tutoring by chatting with professors or looking up things. It’s very important to me that I be able to explain concepts as thoroughly as possible so I always try to incorporate physics into my explanations.

How has PTP impacted you? Before I started tutoring, I was an avid Pokemon player.  At my peak, I was ranked top 3 in the world on Pokemon Showdown. However, my newfound passion for tutoring has cured my addiction to Pokemon. That said, if anyone is willing to learn, I offer free pokemon lessons.

Student Testimonial: “Julian is super helpful and came with a worksheet and everything to help me with orgo [Chemistry]. Great tutor.”
