About Philip


Bio

I'm Phil, I'm originally from Sydney, Australia but I've made a home in Massachusetts over the last few years and I LOVE to teach. The things I'm most passionate about in life include family, science and teaching. I'm a patient and dedicated teacher - I love to learn and I love to help others learn - but feel that both I and others learn best when education is paired with a laugh.

Since 2005, I've tutored privately in various subjects including Math, Chemistry, Biology, Genetics and more...

I'm Phil, I'm originally from Sydney, Australia but I've made a home in Massachusetts over the last few years and I LOVE to teach. The things I'm most passionate about in life include family, science and teaching. I'm a patient and dedicated teacher - I love to learn and I love to help others learn - but feel that both I and others learn best when education is paired with a laugh.

Since 2005, I've tutored privately in various subjects including Math, Chemistry, Biology, Genetics and more from a elementary to college level. From 2012-present I've designed and taught college level courses in Biochemistry, Genetics, Human Biology and Molecular and Cellular Biology. I get great satisfaction in taking challenging or abstract concepts and finding creative ways to unfold and simplify them so that they can be understood and applied by anyone.

My goal is always to meet students where they're at. I like to understand how you learn best and develop a tutoring style and plan to meet their needs and goals. If you're ready to learn and don't mind having a laugh while you do, I'm your guy!

Working in the life sciences has required I become an expert at handling large datasets. Super-scientists need super-powers; an aptitude with Excel is mine. I use it daily in my profession to sort, analyze, interpret and present data. When I'm not at work I'm often tutoring others in its use, or finding creative ways to incorporate the powerful functionality of excel into my daily life. No matter how much you love Excel, I promise I love it more. And I'd love to help you get better at it.

My scientific training has been broad and varied. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Science and a PhD in Molecular Biology and Microbiology. Throughout my education, I received numerous awards for excellence in Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology, and various speaking awards (I kinda like sharing/teaching science!). I have also published peer reviewed research in a variety of Microbiology, Chemistry and General Science journals.

Genetics

I am a trained molecular geneticist with broad experience in the analysis and manipulation of prokaryote and eukaryote DNA. My specialty is in molecular cloning and sequencing; success in this area requires a deep understanding of the processes involved in DNA replication, mutation, repair etc. which I have utilized in various teaching roles over the last 8+ years. I have designed and led lecture and laboratory-based college courses in human genetics, microbiology and molecular and cellular biology, and tutored privately in all of these fields.
