Peer 2 Peer Tutors

After placing a $50 advertisement in a local paper, Peer2Peer Tutors was founded by Erik Kimel during his senior year of high school in 2004. Erik started by tutoring one student - a sixth grader in math. The only way Erik could get his student to focus was by promising to shoot baskets with him after the session. The student loved it. His mom loved it more…

When Erik went off to college at NYU, we continued to grow by building an e-commerce website and creating the Management Operational Mentor (M.O.M.) Manager position. Serving as the liaison between clients and tutors, tutoring client Ann Connelly joined as the first Peer2Peer M.O.M. Today, Ann is our Regional Manager helping to train new M.O.M.’s. We are committed to growth from within.

In January 2008, we were Voted Best Tutoring Company by Bethesda Magazine, and in September 2008, we were featured in The Washington Post. In June 2009, we set a new record by creating 225 jobs in a single school year for top high school students. Throughout our growth, our motto has stayed the same: students learn best from other students. Each year we build on our past experiences to better serve our clients, our tutors, and the community.
