All of Philip’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Philip’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Basketball

I played basketball for more than 13 years into college and have a strong knowledge of both individual fundamentals and team play. Fitness, skill, and cooperation are important aspects in this sport and I have the ability to teach individuals how to improve in these areas of their game.

Biology

I am currently a graduate student pursuing a PhD in biology and therefore feel confident tutoring students in this subject at any level.

College Counseling

Writing personal statements and proposed study plans can be difficult for students who are inexperienced with writing such documents. Over the past 9 years, I've gained a wealth of experience writing essays/letters for undergraduate college applications, academic scholarships, grant proposals, and fellowship applications. The key is to relate your interests with what is offered by the program you are applying for, and how your experience and personality fit the program you are hoping to be accepted into. By explaining your goals and progression as a person and in your profession, reviewers can see that your thoughts are organized and you have a plan that you plan to work hard at to accomplish.

Ecology

My PhD program is in biology and focuses on the behavioral ecology of large predators, and thus I have a strong understanding of ecology and the environment.

Elementary Math

Throughout college I enrolled in math courses through Calculus 3 and therefore have a strong math background and feel comfortable tutoring students that need help.

Elementary Science

My background in biology, chemistry, and physics provides me with ample understanding of these subjects to tutor students that may need extra help understanding concepts in these fields.

Fitness

I have been an athlete for 20 years, playing baseball, football, soccer, basketball, and volleyball, as well as having a variety of active hobbies, including rock climbing, kayaking, and kite boarding. I have also been an active gym member for 10 years.

Study Skills

I am currently a PhD student and have a wealth of experience studying for exams and practicals. So many times students simply memorize material for an exam and then forget most of it days later. However, by relating material to previously learned information, students are better able to understand what they are studying and are better able to remember information for long periods and use the knowledge they gain in future courses.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
