About Phillip

Hello,
My name is Phillip H. and I am a passionate science educator. I have just recently graduated from Kennesaw State University with a B.S. in Biology. While in college, I worked as a teacher's assistant in general and organic chemistry labs. I acted as a supplementary instructor to the professors and fell in love with helping students develop deeper understanding of the material. I worked in these labs for over a year and half and worked on developing methods on how to translate the information to the students in a way they would find interesting. I also volunteered at Fernbank Natural History Museum and was a intern at Zoo Atlanta. These experience also allowed me to developed better interpretation skills and helped me develop methods on how to simplify the complex science behind the exhibits.
I found relating science to everyday life and how it influences our lives tends to make students more interested in the subject. I have also been a science tutor at ClubZ for the past 5 months working with high school students studying chemistry, physics and biology. One of my main styles of teaching is using examples such as cooking and how it relates to chemistry. I am currently planing on going in the graduate school for Ecology and hope to eventually work in environmental education.
I am a very down to earth, fun, passionate tutor. I believe that the relation of interest across subjects is important in the ability to grasp the material. I don't want a student to be able to recite the material but truly understand what it is and it's importance in science. From watching cells reproduce to a powerful chemical reaction that explodes, all is fascinating and the tools found in science is what allows for us to explain these processes.

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.

Biology

Have a Bachelors in Biology, currently works as an environmental educator, and privately tutored biology for 2 years.

Chemistry

I am qualified to tutor this subject for I spent over a year and half working in General chemistry laboratories as a teacher's assistant working problems out for students. Also helping with homework and coursework problems for the laboratories. During this time I also privately tutored both highschool and college students in the subject on the side

Organic Chemistry

This was one of my favorite chemistry courses I have taken and loved both semesters. I am qualified to tutor this subject for I spent over a year and half working in Organic chemistry laboratories as a teacher's assistant working problems out for students. During this time I also privately tutored students in the subject on the side.
