About Philip


Bio

EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION is at the heart of teaching. A deep knowledge of the subject matter must be there BUT if all you are is good in math you're not a teacher!

I am a retired math teacher from the Rochester, New York area. I have taught at the middle school, high school and college level. My strength is being able to explain the concepts of math in everyday terms. People tell me all the time "Why didn't they just say that??".

I have taught everything from adding fractions to calculus...

I am a retired math teacher from the Rochester, New York area. I have taught at the middle school, high school and college level. My strength is being able to explain the concepts of math in everyday terms. People tell me all the time "Why didn't they just say that??".

I have taught everything from adding fractions to calculus II. At the local community college in Rochester, I was always at the top of the student surveys. One year 100% of my college students recommended me. If I accept you as a pupil, I am willing to GUARANTEE you will see an improvement in your grade.

Great tutor, great experience

Philip has been providing calculus tutoring for my son for several months. His knowledge and ability to teach are exceptional. However, what really stands out is Philip's ability to connect and engage with my son. I would highly recommend Philip.

Jesse, 15 lessons with Philip

Wonderful tutor

My daughter was reluctant to do after school tutoring. With Philip's sense of humor, energy, and patience, she actually looks forward to her Algebra 1 tutoring! He knows when to hold back if he thinks my daughter has "information overload". A passionate teacher with the ability to really get through to the learner.

Sunita, 27 lessons with Philip

Great Tutor!

Lexi's first words to me were, "I learned!" Those words are priceless. Phillip is an excellent Tutor. Thank you very much for helping lexi!

Emilie, 4 lessons with Philip

Great Find

My daughter felt at ease with him and she said he is a "math nut" , which means he good!

Victor, 2 lessons with Philip

Best Tutor.... Look no further!!!

My daughter has been with other tutors but Philip has been the most effective getting her grade up from a C to an A. She takes algebra 1 in 7th grade and it's very fast paced. He fills in all the gaps. He makes her confident and encourages her to take the challenge. I hope he will continue to take her through high school !!!

Helga, 14 lessons with Philip

Great Tutor!!!

This is the best tutor by all means. He is patient and knows how to interact with students. I was being tutored by someone else for college calculus. When they could no longer accommodate me, I reached out to Mr. P who took the time to look over all my classwork and test. Needless to say, the next three tests including my final were all A's! This tutor ROCKS!

Adrianna, 17 lessons with Philip

Cindy, 34 lessons with Philip

Best tutor ever!

I highly recommend Mr. Philip! He is an excellent tutor, teacher, and overall great mathematician. He has been helping my 17 year old daughter deal with her math phobias and helping her become an excellent math student. Thank you, Mr. Philip.

Maria, 43 lessons with Philip

Great tutor

In two sessions Phil has helped bring back my daughter's confidence, and actually given her more insight to geometry than she had. He is extremely personable and my daughter feels very comfortable. He is very knowledgeable in the subject matter. We're very happy.
