If reaching this goal confidently means you want us to help you, that is the time you should email Matthew and discuss your situation and dreams.

Is ProgramPrep a new service?

Peter Strube, DNAP, CRNA, MBA, FAANA taught under the name of CRNA Tutor for 12-13 years.
Peter tutored nurse anesthesia residents for 6-7 years, helping hundreds of nurse anesthesia residents on his own, before he partnered with Matt in 2017. Matt brought his passion and wealth of knowledge about mindfulness and hypnosis to the tutoring service. Together they have helped 500+ nurse anesthesia residents pass the National Certification Exam.
In the fall of 2023 Peter partnered with Michael Storm, DNAP, CRNA to bring Michael's online courses and printed books to his tutoring service. 
Since the untimely death of Dr. Peter Strube in 2023 Michael Storm and Annette N Storm, MNA, CRNA have stepped in as the didactic partners with Matthew Zinder. Michael has been teaching nurse anesthesia residents since 2006 and Annette joined him in 2013. Together they own the business Storm Anesthesia.
Matt, Michael, and Annette renamed the tutoring service ProgramPrep.
