I am an experienced physics teacher (27 years of public school teaching at all levels). I've taught AP Physics C for 11 years, as well as AP without calculus. I've been a reader (grader) for the Advanced Placement exam, including the 2019 exam. I've been an item writer for ACT. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, and have been nominated for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching. Most of all, I love helping students get to where they'd like to be and learn what they would like to know.

Definitely would recommend

Mr. Phil was great! He was patient, came prepared for the lesson. My son has a much better understanding of the the addressed concepts after his class. We will for sure be doing more classes with Mr Phil.

Knowledgeable physics teacher

Phil is teaching my 12-year-old son Physics. We were looking for some one who can teach not just theory but also some one who can come and do some projects wilts him. We are glad that we found him.
