About Phil

My goal is to make learning fun and productive for each student. Each student is important and should receive the best one-on-one experience possible. Therefore, the lessons are designed to suit the needs of the individual student. I am positive, enthusiastic, thorough, and patient. I encourage my students to do the best they can.

I have more than four years of experience working with high school students. The subjects I have tutored include Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Great Tutor — Phil has been heaven sent. We are so happy with the help he has given my son. He takes his time explaining the lessons to my son until he understands and will try various methods to explain the concept. We will definitely use Phil's tutorial services in the future for our other son. Thank you for being such a great help to our family. ...
