About Philip


Bio

My tutoring experience first began in high school junior year. I would sometimes tutor my friends and classmates on concepts of algebra such as solving quadratic equations, adding and subtracting algebraic fractions, and graphing linear and quadratic equations. This early experience with tutoring teaches you that anyone can learn math, but you have to find a way to communicate with them and adapt to their learning approach.

My tutoring experience first began in high school junior year. I would sometimes tutor my friends and classmates on concepts of algebra such as solving quadratic equations, adding and subtracting algebraic fractions, and graphing linear and quadratic equations. This early experience with tutoring teaches you that anyone can learn math, but you have to find a way to communicate with them and adapt to their learning approach.

I also tutored my reading teacher's adopted son in intermediate algebra during my days as an Estrella Mountain Community College student. I would help him with adding and subtracting algebraic expressions and fractions. The algebraic expressions confused him at first because he was intimidated by letters being mixed in with numbers. I told him don't worry, just think of one these letters as apples and the other set as oranges. He was still a little slow, but started to come around, this I did back in 2003.

I am currently spending the fall semester of 2013 as a Estrella Mountain Community College math tutor. I am tutoring in algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus I-III. I very much enjoy what I am doing, using my knowledge to help other people, and it is proves to be a profound learning experience for me in terms of my listening and communication skills. Before hire and after the interview, all tutors were put through a two day training course. The course covered how to give positive reinforcement, identifying the students learning style, and engaging the student by asking them how much they know and work from there.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I first learned Algebra 1 through a software disk program that my dad got me in high school. It was not easy for me to learn it but I kept practicing and started to get the hang of it. Gradually, mathematics became second nature to me.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

When I was in high school, my father bought me disks with math programs on them. The math content on the disks were Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. I practiced and mastered them all during my downtime after school. This attributed greatly to my understanding of mathematics today.
Calculus,

I completed calculus 1-3 while earning my associates degree.
Geometry,

Geometry

I learned geometry when I was in high school. Took it during the summer between my freshman and sophomore year. It was very fast paced but I got through it.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I first learned precalculus in high school. It was easy for me since I could apply all the complex algebra to it. It also goes back to back with trigonometry, which I studied straight out the text book during my down time.

I taught myself how to do trigonometry by studying it on my down time while in high school. It wasn't easy for me to begin with but I kept thinking over concepts and refering back to what I was reading, and it started to make sense.

Down to earth and friendly

1, I have been taught and coached by Philip for a while now. One thing I like about him is that he is very much down to earth and friendly. Furthermore he knows his maths, brings it in different direction and he knows how to go about it. He does come on time and is trust worthy. 2,just finish my class with Philip, he is wonderful person with good personality , will recommend him for any persons wishing to have a private math teacher .

Reliable, courteous and smart!

Philip has been working with my high school junior and has helped increase his grade from 64% to 71% and climbing. Philip teaches with patience and is very relatable. I am very pleased with Philip and the results were are seeing and I even plan on using him again as my own personal tutor. Thank you Philip!

Extremely great tutor

We went over some problems from my homework for calculus and Philip really helped me out on them. He has multiple ways of explaining his steps which really helps! Very easy to talk to and I definitely recommend him!

Robert, 1 lesson with Philip

Great Tutor

Phillip is very knowledgeable and very patient. I would highly recommend him. My son has benefited much in geometry from his tutoring sessions.

Monica, 8 lessons with Philip

Very knowledgeable and patient!

Had my first lesson with Philip yesterday and I got to say the guy knows his stuff!! Incredibly smart and explains things well! He answered all my questions. I would recommend him to anyone!

Jessica, 1 lesson with Philip

Available and Knowledgeable

Philip has been great. He is generally available on short notice, which for us, is when we know we need help. My daughters have stated that Philip will explain how to perform the work in one way and if it doesn't click, he explains it another way. They have really appreciated his flexibility and ability to understand not only the math, but how to explain it so that they can understand.
