About Philip


Bio

I am a retired high school teacher (28 years). I have a Masters Degree in Moderate Special Needs and an Undergraduate Degree in History. My specialty was helping students who were having difficulty with their history courses. I had an excellent rapport with students who did not like school or schools didn't like them. Guidance Counselors would often ask me to help these students after school. My most rewarding feed back I ever received was "I wouldn't have graduated without you."

I am a retired high school teacher (28 years). I have a Masters Degree in Moderate Special Needs and an Undergraduate Degree in History. My specialty was helping students who were having difficulty with their history courses. I had an excellent rapport with students who did not like school or schools didn't like them. Guidance Counselors would often ask me to help these students after school. My most rewarding feed back I ever received was "I wouldn't have graduated without you."

I have been a high school basketball coach for 23 years. l have coached at the Freshmen, Junior Varsity, and Varsity coaching level. I have instructed at numerous basketball camps. My passion is teaching basketball skills. I specialize in the fundamentals of basketball. My philosophy is teaching skills step by step, I believe you have to break bad habits before you can create good habits. I am a perfectionist when it comes to the basics. I would welcome several students (boys or girls) at a time which would make this more affordable and help in teaching team concepts. I am not a baby sitter, I only want students who want to learn to be better basketball players and are willing to work at it. I welcome parental involvement.
