About Phillip

I have over 30 years teaching experience, and I have found that most students do not care how much I know, until they understand how much I care. My students will find I care very much. My approach to most opportunities is to determine where we are, then jointly agree on a goal or destination. As leader of an adventure, I am responsible to devise a workable plan of action, and to provide feedback on our progress. If we are to share success at the end of the journey, all parties must do their part. I have high expectations, and I know we will get out of it what we have put into it. Before I became a teacher, I was, and will forever be, a learner. I submit I can no more teach what I do knot know, then I can come back from where I have not been. If I were to try, it would be like the blind leading the blind. Having said that, I am open to your questions and concerns.

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.

Algebra 1

Not everyone knows how important algebra is in learning and understanding many other subjects, for example electronics. Of the many courses I have taught in the past, it was and still is amazing to see how much easier it is for the students to grasp necessary concepts. I believe algebra along with an application make it more comprehendable. I plan to find out what other interests your student has in order to show how algebra applies.

Criminal Justice

I held a part time job at the Hastings Youth Accademy. I went through an intencive training, where I was schooled in PARR, a defencive Stradegy. I learnd to defend myself in such a way as to avoid any injury to our clients. We were coached in the psychology of our clients, how to defuse a volital situations. Gangs and drugs were a significant part of their former lives. This did stop just because they were behind bars. First aid was an important part of our overall traing pragram. State law was covered throughly, as to what coud and could not be done, depending on the circumstances. Our clients were there for rehabilitation and education. Their health and well being were of the utmose importants. For all that is done for these boys, more will return to the system than those who will benefit and move on. Most return to the same environment from which they came. I like to think that I was a positive influence, but once a student left the institution he was not to have any contact with any of the employees(state law). I was a mentor to more than a few, and I would like to know what became of them.

DOS

I had a computer Long before there were any Windows operating systems. All the commands had to be typed on the command line. Every thing had to be according to the rules or you did not get what was expected. Managing files was a real chore to say the least. Today most people are not aware that Microsoft DOS runs just below Windows and is live and well. Some may even be surprised to find out that DOS still works and still be useful in solving many computer problems. I believe that how things work in a computer is more than just an interesting part of history. A working knowledge of DOS helps in a deeper understanding of information processing. Programing is still well paying occupation. Yes DOS lives!

Electrical Engineering

I have served as an Electrons Technician in the United States Navy. Electronics was covered under my Industrial Arts Certification, and before my teaching certificate elapsed, I was certified as a Vocational Electronics Instructor. Basic electricity and electronics were a part of my teaching assignment both in Ohio and St. St. Augustine High School. I recommend that a student complete an algebra course before taking on electricity or electronics, even though it is more difficult without I have had students succeed.

Elementary Math

Math is without a doubt one of the most important subjects to master. I could not imagine teaching drafting,electronics,general science, or industrial arts without a firm math foundation. In my thirty years of teaching, I would be hard put to think of a time when a knowledge of math was not applied.

Football

I played football in high school and as result received a college scholarship at the University of Cincinnati. I would really enjoy passing along my knowledge skills as a personal trainer.

General Computer

Hindsight is 20/20. I missed my chance to take typing(and to learn key boarding) when I was in high school. I deeply and daily regret this missed opportunity. Time moves on, and the last ten years of my teaching in high school, computers were placed in my classroom. I was forced to learn, usually just one step ahead of my students. Since then, it is difficult to think of a day when a computer has not been an important part of my life.

Photography

Photography was covered under my certification as an Industrial Arts Teacher. I taugh Photography as part of my teaching assignment while at St. Augustine High School. Amoung other topics covered, I taugh darkroom skills in processing 35mm film and printing and developing enlarged prints. Even though most photography today is digital and usually involves computers. I believe knowledge of the history and these techniques is still useful and benefical. Other areas suchas lighting and optics have never changed. Knowledge beyond point and shoot can be very rewarding not to mention profitable.

Study Skills

My last seven of thirty three years of teaching was in ISS and PASS type Courses. In-School Suspension was the last stop before being tossed out of school. Every morning I received all the assignments from all my students teachers; and returned the same at the end of the day. As you can see I was the substitute teacher for any and all courses offered at the school at any given time. In addition to helping students with course content, study skills were also an important part of the learning process.
