About Philip

My experience includes five of my own children, six grandchildren, and 18 years as a college professor. Knowledge of the subject is important but patience and understanding is just as important. I have the knowledge through study (BA Westminster; MA cum laude, FDU; MPhilo. NYU; and Ph.D. NYU) and the patience and understanding through a lifetime of living. Serving as a Marine officer in the Korean Conflict I was wounded severely and lost my left leg. I understand physical adversity and have overcome my handicaps through my faith and work.

In a sense, I starting my tutoring early in life without realizing. I was responsible for the training and welfare of 300 Marines. Family tutoring was easy after that.

In tutoring I give many short tests, require homework, and a give and take in conversation with the student. I would like to meet with the family and student before the first session. This would be at no cost to the family. In this way I can prepare a lesson plan for use at the first session.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies in high school and while on active duty with the US Marine Corps. Much of my tutoring experience was at Wesley College where my subject was history for college curricula but social studies for freshmen to get them up to speed. My bachelors, masters, and Ph.D are all in various eras pertaining to history.
