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 believe that teaching is about listening and observing how the learner is reacting to what is being said and adjusting your communication to their learning style.

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 believe that teaching is about listening and observing how the learner is reacting to what is being said and adjusting your communication to their learning style.

I am a retired math teacher from the Rochester, New York area. I have taught at the middle school, high school and college level. I also taught student teachers how to be effective educators. 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.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the foundation for the math courses that follow. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 delves deeper into the concepts and skills introduced in Algebra 1 and introduces the beginning of analysis skills using the skill set mastered in Algebra 1. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus I is primarily concerned with understanding the idea of a derivative, techniques of derivation and applications of derivatives. Calculus 2 covers integration in the same manner. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry uses some different skills from those used in algebra. Some of those skills are memorization and presenting concise arguments. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts and the logical flow of thought in any argument. I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra is a basic skills course which includes factoring and set theory. I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way. You’re never too old or too young to laugh while learning math!
Precalculus

Precalculus

Precalculus reviews concepts and skills introduced in Algebra 2 and introduces students to exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences, series and other topics continuing to build on the student’s analytical skills. In order to do well, students must UNDERSTAND the concepts presented not merely “get the answer.” I have had great success teaching the concepts as well as the mechanics in a fun and interesting way.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry requires familiarity with the unit circle along with skills used in algebra. However, teaching trigonometry should be tied to a functional analysis approach in order for the students to do well.

Algebra

Excellent! Made my son feel comfortable. Seems very knowledgeable. Will be having more lessons so my son is back on track. He is very flexible with the times and will come to you.

Phillip is an amazing tutor. He has a gift to get the student to understand the information. In the sessions he’s had with my son for precalculus, I already see an improvement. Highly recommend him to anyone.

Thally, 3 lessons with Philip

Excellent Teacher!!!

Philip and my son got off to a great start. My son said that he is able to identify his mistakes and is able to see and better comprehend the problem and with the techniques that he learned, just on this day alone, is going to help him moving forward. We highly recommend Philip and we believe that his individualized and structured approach will help any student.

Medy, 3 lessons with Philip

Very knowledgeable and explains in a way that’s easy to understand.

I completed an online Calculus class with Philip. I could not have done it without his help. I’m highly recommend him! His availability was great with my schedule. Thank you, Philip.

Kristen, 5 lessons with Philip

Fun and patient tutor

Phil does a great job with my son. He is knowledgeable, engaging, and seems truly invested in how my son is doing. My son’s confidence in geometry has greatly improved since meeting Phil!

Diane, 24 lessons with Philip

Great lesson with Phillip

Philip was able to accommodate us on short notice to help my daughter who is taking Pre-calc over the summer and was having difficulty with a topic. The lesson went well and my daughter thought he was very helpful!

Daniel, 4 lessons with Philip

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.
