Phil has been working with my daughter for a few weeks now, and she absolutely loves him. He has a very mild demeanor and is very patient with my daughter, who can at times be hyper and talkative when she is supposed to be working. Phil has a wonderful way of channeling her energy into the work and finding new ways to get her involved in the assignment. He makes up fun games that keep her engaged and make the work fun. I would recommend Phil to anyone who would like an extremely intelligent and efficient tutor. My daughter's work has improved and she looks forward to her tutor sessions and learning more in class. She is progressing at a wonderful rate thanks to Phil's help.

Mr. Philip is a very patient tutor he is helping my daughter who's having problems with math and Mr. Philip explains to her how to solve the problems and she is happy to have him helping her.

Philip has been very understanding with my daughters' needs. He addresses the issues she is struggling with the most in a way she can easily understand. He is also very patient with her.

Philip and I went over some Algebra stuff and I think by the time I had it down. He also seems very cool and I look forward to more meetings in the future.

My daughter feels a lot more confident and knowledgeable in her Algebra 2 class after her tutoring sessions. Philip is patient, helpful and really teaches the material thoroughly to her!

This was my son's first session with Philip. Philip was able to get through all of the material that my son needed to go over. Philip made my son's first session an enjoyable one so he is looking forward to many more.

Daughter learned a lot from tutoring sessions, was able to understand Algebra 2 much better with Phil's help. And most importantly, she did much better in her algebra class.

Mr. Philip is a very great tutor. My son had two lessons with him and he gives him high marks.

We had our first session with Philip yesterday and were very impressed with his ability to connect with our 14 year old son. Philip really seems to care about his students and ensuring they are really understanding the math concepts that are being covered. We are looking forward to additional sessions with him.

This is the second school year we have used Philip. He helped my son gain the knowledge and confidence with algebra. He is now helping my 8th grader with geometry. Sean has improved his classroom assignments as well as test scores. Thanks for all you do.

Mr. Phil is great with my daughter even when she can be a little unfocused at times.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have a degree in Physics from the University of Maryland with a strong background in mathematics, including calculus, analytic geometry, differential equations, linear algebra, boolean algebra, complex variables, and vector functions. I have also taken graduate-level math coursework at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. I have worked for over 40 years as an engineer applying math to the solution of real-world problems.

Algebra is the abstraction of basic arithmetic, using letters to stand in for specific known or unknown numbers. The abstract notation of algebra often gives new students difficulty, but the concept, when properly explained, is not difficult. A good working knowledge of algebra is essential to fields like science, engineering, math, economics, and finance. It is also useful in real life, from figuring out how to expand a recipe, to computing your batting average, to determining how many gallons you'll need to paint a room.

I truly enjoy working with young people, and have been a baseball and softball hitting instructor for many years. My experience has taught me to work at each studentâ€™s level until the subject matter is understood and the student becomes proficient at the skills he or she is trying to master.

I have also taken graduate-level math coursework at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. I have worked for over 40 years as an engineer applying higher-level mathematics to the solution of real-world problems.

Algebra 2 is the springboard for the more advanced mathematics that a student will encounter in college. Having a firm grasp of polynomial operations, graphs, systems of equations and inequalities, matrix operations, logs and exponents, conic sections, and complex numbers is essential for succeeding at linear algebra, calculus, and advanced statistics. It is also essential to fields like science, engineering, math, economics, and finance.

As an engineer, I was often called on to explain complex technical topics to non-experts. I learned to minimize the jargon and get to the underlying idea so everyone on a project could understand the technical approach. I bring that skill to my tutoring and can help make difficult topics accessible to the student. If algebra 2 is a struggle, I can help.

Having command of basic elementary mathematics - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, exponents, roots, etc. - is essential to mastering the higher-level math disciplines that a student will encounter in high school and college. But 40 years as a working engineer has also taught me that math is a useful tool for solving real world problems, no matter what profession a student chooses in life.

Geometry can be a difficult subject because there are many theorems and definitions that the student has to learn and apply - and each topic, be it parallel lines, triangles, polygons, circles, or areas and volumes, has its own unique set of theorems. In addition to the personal help, I provide each student with a number of study guides that I have written that summarize the key theorems and definitions. Together, the student and I use these guides to solve problems. I also use the IXL on-line math program to give the student extra practice at solving problems. But most importantly, I let the student know that I am there to help and will work at their pace to help them master each topic.

Having a good understanding of basic elementary and middle school mathematics is essential to mastering the higher-level math disciplines that a student will encounter in high school and college, and is a useful tool no matter what profession a student chooses in life.
