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

English

I have worked with college students, high school students and middle school students on clarity in writing, organization in writing, word usage and grammar.

ESL/ESOL

I am endorsed to teach English in Virginia. I have taught ESL in Fairfax County Public Schools. I can assist with word usage, grammar, pronunciation, writing organization, and writing fluency. I can find appropriate reading material that matches your interests and needs and set up a program to facilitate your advancement.

Government & Politics

I worked for almost 20 years doing political and policy work in Washington, D.C. on both the state and federal levels. This included work at political committees and for associations.

Public Speaking

I have taken two classes in public speaking (one each in high school and college). I have written remarks for public officials speaking at events. I have delivered speeches at government affairs conferences. I have also worked with students in Fairfax County in helping them improve their public speaking.

Social Studies

I have passed the Praxis II exam for middle school social studies. I also taught social studies as a long-term substitute for Fairfax County Public Schools. Prior to my teaching, I worked with national political committees which gave me a sound grounding in the history and process of our government at the local, state and national levels.

Writing

I have worked with students in Northern Virginia in middle school, high school and college to improve their writing. I can assist with grammar, spelling, word usage, organization and clarity. I think it is important to work hard to determine what a student wants to write. "Brainstorming" techniques may be helpful in unlocking the best ideas!

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.
