Over 5,000 happy students
What Our Peer Clients Are Saying...
“By the way, I really love tutoring! Emily is my first client and I can't put into words how great things are going. I love seeing and hearing that I am helping her out a lot and that she really appreciates me as a tutor. The best part is, I helped her get a strong A on thelast test of 1st quarter, which determined her grade that was a borderline B to A. With that test grade, her grade raised to an A! I'm really happy I helped her receive an A in that class. She is a smart girl, and we work very well together."
-Parisa D., Montgomery County, MD
Jake is consistently on time and John is happy ... Jake appears to be loosening up and as of late has helped himself to the candy bowl--this is a "good thing" in our house...there is a routine for homework and then if time allows there are back up drills...all in all we are all doing well. On the other hand, Chad is a "star" He is personable. He is totally motivated and John is learning by Chad's example. Chad is a self starter and rarely needs direction. As of this moment John is feeling a sense of success in school for probably the first time in his academic life.

Over the past year, I've had the opportunity to work with and partner with Aristotle Circle Peers. The regular tutoring help we received from high school students in math and in language arts has made an enormous difference in the achievements of our students. We cannot put a price tag on how valuable they are. Their tutors are top notch and we are consistently impressed with their quality and resourcefulness. I highly recommend AC Peer as they make such a positive difference in the achievement of our students.
-Carolyn, PTA President in Arlington, VA
“I'm Sarah, and I was in the 10th grade last year when I experienced Aristotle Circle Peers Skype Tutoring. I was taking a challenging AP course in computer scienceand for help in understanding the material for my exam I used AC Peers. My tutoring experience was really great especially since it was all on Skype.This way I was able to have classes from anywhere. During my one month of tutoring I even went on vacation overseas and I was still able to have sessions! Further, I found it much easier to learn things from the comfort of my own home, and it saves on gas!!! In the end, Aristotle Circle Peers paid off as I got a 5 (perfect) on my AP computer science exam! If I ever need help again in any other AP classes I will most definitely use the P2P Skype Tutoring Program because of the versatility and great results! I absolutely recommend that anyone needing any tutoring at all should try the AC Peers Skype option!!!!"
-S.A. from Fairfax County, Virginia
“I was at the local pool the other day with my daughter and her friend. I proceeded to tell her about Aristotle Circle Peers, recommending she visit the website peers.aristotlecircle.com; my daughter over heard us and she gave her testament to both her friend's mom and her friend. The parent will be calling AC Peers sometime in the next two weeks to gather more information about the programs."
-Ellen C. from Howard County, Maryland
“Chris L. has been tutoring my son in Honors Geometry. He just got a 92% on his math summative test (he had an E on the first one). This is wonderful and Chris has done a super job helping him. Once we get the unit 3 objectives we will contact him to set up another session so my son stays on track. Just wanted to share the good news and let you know how great Chris is."
-Connie I., Mongtomery County, MD Parent
“Allie was wonderful-- a big help to James. He's been working hard all weekend to continue studying for the test...a continuation of what he was doing with Allie. Thank you for providing such a wonderful service. I wish we had known about you earlier in the year."
-Gerri L., Westchester County, NY Parent
“Brian is the most successful NSL tutor I've had so far. I am especially pleased with how he helped me prepare for the writing portion of the test. He gave me extremely helpful pointers to write a top-scoring BCR (Brief Constructed Response). He explained each and every aspect of A-grade writing. For example, he got me to significantly improve my organization. In past BCR's, I threw out ideas left and right without thinking about how to structure my writing. He taught me to start with a broad topic sentence, narrow it down into specific examples and details, and finally sum it up with a strong conclusion sentence. He also showed me how to clearly state my opinion on "Do you think...?" questions and provide powerful support with specific events in history and their consequences, and then to tie everything back to the question. I am so happy with Brian! Thanks for sending him as a tutor."
-Annie A., Mongtomery County, MD Student
“I wanted to thank you and Angela B. Lauri got an amazing 2110 on her SATs! She was in the 1700s with the practice! I will continue to brag about Aristotle Circle Peers. This was beyond anything we could have hoped for. I've used P2P since Lauri was in 6th or 7th grade for mostly math and have loved every experience. This SAT tutoring experience has surpassed anything we could have hoped for and we have to give Angela and P2P so much credit. Thanks again for everything and Lauri will continue to use P2P for math until high school is through."
-Susan M., Mongtomery County, MD Student
“I cannot say enough good things about Michael and the worders that she has worked with my son Sam. He is now receiving 3/3 on his BCRs. His teacher has praised his improvement in reading comprehension, as well as his effort and strength now seen in his writing. I would like for Aristotle Circle Peers to know that I have used After School Programs, Resource Teachers, and Teachers to tutor Sam, but nothing seemed to work. I am not saying anything against them, but what I am saying is that Michael is truly a God send."
-Dawn H., Howard County, MD Parent
“After helping Mike with his application to get into the theater program at Churchill, he was accepted! And, Alex has gone up from a D to a B in math, after getting an 88% on his last unit test and 100% on his last quiz! I was just excited by the news and wanted to share it."
-Ali W., Mongtomery County, MD Parent
“I thought you'd like to know that Henry's latest report card was significantly improved and he made honor roll for the very first time! It's clear that Kevin has played an important role in Henry's progress! This has been a good match!"
-Susan S., Westchester County, NY Parent
“David began tutoring my son last week. It's taken a few sessions to figure out how to make the best use of their time together, but I think we're there now. David is EXCELLENT. He clearly knows his stuff and is able to communicate it clearly to Chris. David is every bit as good as the tutor we've been using who is currently a FCPS high school teacher. Thanks for responding so quickly to my request, and for sending us someone so good. I will gladly recommend your service to others."
-Linda H., Fairfax County, VA Parent
“Alex has been absolutely terrific. He has helped our son gain much needed confidence and did so in an engaging, relaxed manner. Alex made our son laugh AND learn. He was great and I would highly recommend him. If we decide to have a tutor again, Alex would be our first choice. You have a winner in him!."
-Patty W., Mongtomery County, MD Parent
“I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how great Kevin Lynch has been for Alex. Kevin is conscientious and responsible. Most importantly, Alex really likes Kevin and finds him to be very helpful with French. I know it took some work to find the right fit but it was well worth the experience. Thank you again for finding a wonderful tutor for Alex."
-Deidre D., Westchester County, NY Parent
“Jay R. is an excellent tutor. He has connected with my son at a peer level which has helped my child to be open to working with him. Jay has really helped to keep my son focused on his homework and does a nice job teaching him concepts he does not understand. He is always punctual and very polite and kind! Nice job selecting such a fine student as a tutor! I would recommend him to others!"
-Dawn G., Howard County, MD Parent
“I was working with my son Ben on his Geometry last night. I was asking him this morning if it helpful to have someone work with him to study for exams. His response was, "I don't really like working with you, dad or aunt Lily because you don't know the curriculum. I really only like working with Maggie, because she knows the curriculum and how it is taught at school." I went on to ask - did he like working with the other adult tutors I had used for him before Maggie and he reiterated - not really because they did not know the curriculum and is was not as helpful. Just thought you would like to hear his take on tutoring!"
-Karen B., Montgomery County, MD Parent
“Danielle said she received a 45/50 on her movie poster report. Boy, was that stressing her out, so thanks for your help. Danielle also reported she received quite an excellent grade on her A-Z Dictionary of Exploration. We couldn't be happier."
-April K., Westchester County, NY Parent
“Annie is fantastic! Jill really liked her. She has a great teaching style and made Jill feel very comfortable. They work well together. Annie was able to present the problems in a way that makes sense to Jill."
-Regina F., Westchester County, NY Parent
“Daniel arrived promptly and got right down to work with Sam. Sam says that Daniel really knew his math and was helpful. I was impressed with his poise. Our other tutor Alex is a really good tutor. He has helped Sam stay organized and seems able to offer assistance in all Sam's subjects. Sam has not complained once about being tutored!."
-Susan S., Westchester County, NY Parent
“I would like to thank you for the excellent service that Aristotle Circle Peers is doing. Due to excellent coaching, Katie got 'A' in English GT (Humanities stream of Centennial HIgh school) and she got a GPA of 3.71. She is quite well rounded."
-Sundar K., Howard County, MD Parent
“I wanted to reiterate what an outstanding job Kyle's tutor did this past year. I would like to request that if I have a remaining balance credit on my account, I would like to pay $500.00 to Mary as a gift for her college expenses in the upcoming year."
-Bo W., Fairfax County, VA Parent
“: I just wanted to say that the tutor we had this year was absolutely supurb. We have had other tutors through Aristotle Circle Peers and they have always been great but Jamie is by far the best we've ever had. She made my son so comfortable and she was great at explaining how to do something without doing it for him. We are bummed that she will be leaving for Cornell University but she is such a smart, kind, warm individual that I know she will go on to great things. All our thanks."
-Susan M., Montgomery County, MD Parent
“Thanks so much for all your help and for being such a nice and helpful person. Aristotle Circle Peers was a big help to my daughter who has now graduated. I will recommend your service to friends in the future."
-Jack J., Mongtomery County, MD Parent
“My son will be graduating but I’m recommending your service to everyone I know and I’m sure I’ll utilize Aristotle Circle Peers again, either for myself or older son at Montgomery College. Thank you for all your valuable assistance."
-Marjorie V., Northwest High School Parent
“First of all, we are very impressed with Jinchi, my son's biology tutor. Justin had a solid B for 3rd quarter and has improved confidence in regards to the class. His teacher actually asked me about your company to refer to another student in her class. She too has commented on Justin's "new attitude" in her class."
-Kim M., Reservoir High School 10th Grade Parent
“Chris & Michael are REALLY enjoying working with Vinny. Especially Michael who, after getting a 100% on his last science test, now looks forward to his meetings with Vinny for that extra assistance with studying. Please let me know when you have a tutor who might be able to assist in “Mandarin” – seriously!"
-Angela T., Albert Leonard Middle School Parent
“I am so glad we discovered Aristotle Circle Peers. I passed on this great program to my friends. We love the tutors that have been assigned to us. My daughter needed extra help in GT math. The tutor they sent is smart, patient, kind, and they laugh together too! He has made homework easier and more interesting. Her test scores improved after the first visit! She also has a cello tutor, and she is great too. My daughter really likes her and is now playing 2 new pieces very well. She loves practicing for us. We will continue to use Aristotle Circle Peers in the fall to jump start her entrance into middle school. "
-Brenda T., Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School
“Congratulation to Thomasina! I had the pleasure of using her services for math for my son. Great Job!"
-Shelly F., Springbrook High School 12th Grade Parent
“I have been very pleased with Ben and in the past...Karishma too. My son is not wanting to have a tutor every week but we still ask Ben to come when needed. Again, I am very pleased with the help he( Ben ) has been giving my son. I also didn't think to acknowledge Karishma for her work last year with my daughter Anna. She was an excellent tutor too. I know she is doing well in college now. If by chance, you have her address, I would like to send her a "hope you're enjoying college/thanks" card. Thanks for your help in finding them for us."
-Carla R., Magruder High School Parent
“Thank you so much Aristotle Circle Peers! Eli and Margarita both worked with my daughter. After each session she was actually smiling. She said they were both so nice and explained the math to her in a way she could understand. Katie just sent me a text from school...she got an 85% on her math unit exam. Her teacher congratulated her! AC Peers is priceless!"
-Holy Cross School 9th Grade Parent
“Alison was jubilant when she got home from school today regarding her Math test!! She said it was easy and that Jessica had given her confidence and that she wanted her to help her with all her subjects. This is a 180 degree turn from when she came home last Monday from her science test (same type of test as the one today for math). She said she failed it and was in tears and has been all week, along with being down, nervous and obsessing negatively, even had sleep problems, not herself at all. This is what prompted her to be willing to accept tutoring (thinking she failed the science test and so badly wanting to get in the advanced classes next year) because she has been totally resistant to tutoring up until now, something I've thought she has needed a bit of here and there since 2nd or 3rd grade."
-Westchester County Parent
“I can't thank you enough for offering the great Summer Enrichment Camp. I don't know how you do it but in just 5, 1/2 day sessions, your tutors manage to get the kids through the daunting math packets give to MCPS students for summer work. Not only do the kids complete the work and clear that worry off their summer schedules, but your tutors make the camp so much fun, they actually enjoy doing the math! You guys are the best! Thank you!!"
-Karen C., MCPS Parent
“You were checking in to see how the tutoring is going. Zijin is wonderful. My son and him get along. He is prompt. He is flexible with his schedule so he can come the day before a quiz or a test. My son is more confident now and he tell me his grades have improved."
-Quince Orchard High School, 12th Grader
“I just wanted to take the time to tell you what an outstanding tutor Jung-Duk is! She is energetic and my son says she explains everything so well."
-Whitman High School, 11th Grade Parent
“I wanted to let you know that Lawrence has been a tremendous help to my daughter! He is kind and helpful and has helped my daughter a lot in Math. She got an A on the test which is great but more importantly helped her self esteem! Lawrence is a great ambassador for your program. Thank you very much!!"
Churchill High School, 10th Grade Parent
“He also asked good questions that pushed my son to think about the way he’s studying and attacking problems, so we’re delighted. Once again, Aristotle Circle Peers has proved a great resource, and we look forward to seeing our tutor again Tuesday at 8 – and hopefully for many months to come!"
-Whitman High School, 10th Grade Parent
"Somi turned my day around with her encouragement, enthusiasm, and clear explanations. She then followed through by making up problems for me to solve to make sure I understood the concept. I was so happy and relaxed when she left because, due to her excellent tutoring, I had a great understanding of the material. I also want to thank you for being able to find me a tutor the same night my mom called. I'm so glad I can enter my math classroom tomorrow feeling like I know what I'm doing."
-9th Grade Student (& future tutor) of P2P.
"Max B. came today for the last time. He has been awesome. The best tutor ever and a really nice kid. Thanks so much for sending him our way! Have a nice summer."
-Green Acres School Parent, 8th Grader.
"Stacy is a very unique individual!! She is great with my daughter, jumps right in to the session and is completely focused on her the entire time. She has also provided testing strategies that have proven very helpful. I told Stacy she needs to take a year off before going to college to stay and help us. Just kidding. She will be a wonderful physician and do great things with her career choice. I am so grateful to her and your agency!!"
-Winston Churchill High School Parent, 9th Grader.
"More important than improving grades, however, is the way our tutor mentors our son, helping him look at school and studying in a new way. This will help my son more in the long run."
-Janet F., Whitman High School Parent
"I am very, very happy with your service - my son really likes his tutor, and his grades have improved. What great service - no wonder your company is successful!"
-Lisa L, Wootton High School Parent
"We just started with Aristotle Circle Peers, and VERY happy with first results. Lynn is super to work with."
-Aloka D., Pyle Middle School Parent
"After my daughter was put in a class with perhaps one of the worst math teachers MCPS hired, we had no choice but to call Aristotle Circle Peers. If not for them and the wonderful tutor they provided, our daughter would have failed algebra. They also run a great math packet camp."
-Anonymous Posting on Washington Post website
"Just wanted to let you know our tutor is delightful. He arrives quite prepared and organized. I think my son felt very comfortable with him. The tutor kept my son engaged for the full hour. I think this will work out well!"
-Rebecca F., Wood Middle School Parent
“You provide a first-rate service that has the rare quality of also having the wonderful ‘personal touch’ that you add to it.”
-Sharon B., Cabin John Middle School Parent
“This is by far the best tutoring program. We love our tutor: she is smart, gracious and engaging. My daughter is literally getting PERFECT scores in honors geometry.”
- Holly H., Walter Johnson High School Parent
“Our tutor has helped to make chemistry very enjoyable and a relatively easy A with her homework well in hand. But in addition, and this is where the peer angle comes in, our tutor has been a real friend to my daughter. Our tutor is a junior and my daughter is a freshman and so it has been a helpful relationship all the way around.
-Laura M., Churchill High School Parent
"As a parent of a sixth grade student, I am very pleased to have your services. Your tutors have been very polite, understanding, and knowledgeable and have provided the much needed outside help that my daughter needs. It's nice to know we have the resources and the willingness of our young adults to come forward to help others in their community. I am happy to spread the word."
-Ann W., Cabin John Middle School Parent
"I just wanted to let you know that Jane’s HSA score came today. When you consider where we were last year, this score is fantastic. She never would have done it without Anna and she has already posted a message on Anna's Facebook wall. We haven't used you this year because Jane has been getting A’s and B’s in geometry. I am always telling other parents about your company.
-Judy L., Churchill High School Parent
"Stacy just told me that she just received her English paper back that Alexandra had helped her with and Stacy was the only one in her class to receive 100% . Stacy pointed out that she had not received 100% on any English assignment that required writing in a very long time. She was quite proud of herself. So thanks very much to Alexandra."
-Laura L, Hoover Middle School Parent
“Thank you for all you have done for us for the last 3 years! We depend on you and you deliver! We wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.”
-Tomye S., Hoover Middle School Parent
"Jonathan made the honor roll the last 3 quarters of the year and I don't think he could've done it without Aristotle Circle Peers."
-Rohda A., Hoover Middle School Parent
"I have a 9th grader at Seneca Valley High School. My son has ADD and it is very hard for him to understand how important it is to do all his homework everyday. I was looking for a tutoring program that would help him understand this idea. I received a leaflet in the mail from Aristotle Circle Peers and I decided to give them a try. It was the best decision I ever made. They matched Michael with Cindy, a junior at Seneca Valley. But amazingly enough I think this was the best choice. Cindy is able to relate to him in a way that I have never seen anyone else do. Thanks to Cindy and Aristotle Circle Peers for helping Mark understand how important homework is."
- Pamela C., Seneca Valley High School Parent
"Carrie did get an A in PreCal W/ analysis for the 1st Q. She said NOBODY gets an A in that class!"
-Betsy D., Churchill High School Parent
"The program offers exceptional value and exceptional service. The tutors are great; they are high school students themselves who have gone through the system and have mastered the subjects that they teach. They can really relate to the kids, plus they understand the curriculum. And it's totally hassle-free, they come to your house. It's really worked for us."
-Joanne E., Hoover Middle School Parent
"We had our first tutoring session last night with Michael B. from Churchill High. Michael was great, very kind, smart and focused. Greg was able to complete most of the work without much assistance this week, but just having Michael there to check his work, give him encouragement, and pointers on organization were very helpful. Greg actually did another 20 minutes of work after Michael left because he was feeling so good about getting caught up with his back log of work. Just wanted you to know that Michael was top notch."
-Celia H., Westland Middle School Parent
"Sam had a fine tutoring experience with Mark. They were a good match and Mark helped Sam through his required Algebra 2 semester. He got a B and an A for the 2 quarters and a final grade of A for the semester. Thanks again for your services. I will refer friends to Aristotle Circle Peers with high praise."
-Janet C., Ridgeview Middle School Parent
"My son is doing so much better - a C to an A. And the teacher wondered what happened?"
-Linda G., Churchill High School Parent
"I would like to tell you that we are very pleased with Mark. He was the perfect match for Jordan. Mark is always on time, very professional, very polite, and they seemed to hit it off as peers. Jordan got an A in his Statistics Class! Great service and great results! My only regret is that we didn't know of Aristotle Circle Peers last year!"
-Shelia L., Seneca Valley High School Parent
"The tutoring went great! Rachel managed to pass the final with a much better than expected grade. Rachel said that Jane was very helpful and really knew her stuff. He was very hesitant about having a tutor; but after the fact was very appreciative. We will definitely use you again if needed; as well as recommend Aristotle Circle Peers to others. Thanks again for finding us someone on such short notice."
-Les W., Magruder High School Parent
"Ridgeview Middle School has an awards assembly for the end of the grading period. Phil was one of 4 or 5 students to receive an award for the most improved student for the grading period. I attribute a lot of Phil's success to Lauren!"
-Sidney M., Ridgeview Middle School Parent
“Jessie was very good. She engaged Andrew in the hour activity. She encouraged him to write slower so his handwriting is more legible. They are working on writing organization. I would like to continue the sessions over the summer. Thank you again for your personal touch."
-Alice C., Wayside Elementary School Parent
“You're already doing everything. Your tutors are better than any of the adults we've used before we learned about Aristotle Circle Peers. Do you have tutoring for high school seniors? I know Natalie will still be needing tutoring even then. Could an AP student help a non-honors student in a subject area, even if they are both seniors? Incidentally, Susan Clarkson has really gone above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf and we couldn't ask for a better MOM. She's a 10!”
-Joanna W., Wootton High School Parent
“I think your service is great - the tutors are very professional, in addition to being good tutors! Alongside the tutoring, I see some mentoring happening too.”
-Ravina M., Walt Whitman High School Parent
"Most importantly, he is not delaying doing the work. Now he starts early in the evening so he spend more time on it if he doesn't get "it"."
-Pam B., Churchill High School Parent
"I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge what a great tutor we have, Jed N. He is great with our son. and I am very impressed with his maturity, ability and commitment to help make a plan for our son to succeed."
-Cyndi S., Patapsco Middle School Parent
"It is a blessing to me and to my son, Josh, that we found you. He is doing great! We love both of his amazing tutors, Kevin B. and Jonathan R. They are both patient, bright, kind, and creative mentors and role models. I am having some scheduling changes and both the tutors have been great in trying to work out a schedule to allow Josh to continue working with both of them."
-Chris C., Burleigh Manor Middle School Parent
