Are you looking for a tutor with a proven track record of professional and academic success? If so, you can't do better than hiring me. A one-time Oxford University scholar, I am a five-time award-nominated poet, have won various prizes for my work, have received commendations from the likes of Diane Seuss and Maurice Manning, and am the recipient of grants from major national literary organizations, including Poets & Writers, the Authors League and PEN America. Moreover, I hold a terminal MFA in Poetry and Fiction, am a former Internet-publishing executive, am an internationally published journalist and and comic-strip writer, and am the author of four books: The Day the Sun Rolled Out of the Sky (Cy Gist 2010), A Brief History of Woodbridge, New Jersey (The History Press 2019), A Plan in Case of Morning (Vine Leaves 2020), and Post Cards of McHenry County, Illinois (Arcadia 2021). As a student, I scored a 720 out of 800 on the SAT Verbal section, and I scored 720 out of 800 on the GRE Verbal section and 5.5 out of 6 on the GRE Writing section. And I can help you do all this too. The key to, for instance, scoring a 5 on the AP History, Literature and English Language exams (as I have done) is creating mental connections between the facts to form a mental picture.
This is called "Context Learning," and with me as your coach, you can learn to use this powerful tool to achieve success in whatever subject you set your sights on. What's more, I have experience tutoring junior-high and high-school students, as well as proctoring college-level classes. So, suffice it to say, I am comfortable working with both children and adults. I guarantee I can help you master the TOEFL, English, the GRE, the SAT, Reading, Writing, World History, American History, European History, HTML, French, Latin, SEO Marketing, and a host of other topics. So why not give me a try? An introductory session is economical at as low as $35/hour, and my hourly rate becomes even more affordable after the first 10 hours per week!

Best tutor ever!
We started with Phillip with just an Advanced Algebra and he also helps with my sons Chemistry class as well! He has made it so that my son understands both and will now most likely graduate thanks to him! We’ve had a lot of tutors over the years but Phillip has really taken the time to understand how best to teach my son. That’s made all the difference in the world.Kay, 130 lessons with Phillip
Phil is always patient and thorough for sure with his explanations.
We have been working heavy on Math for 11th grade and SAT preparation. The material is often complex and requires a lot of detailed explaining. He does a great job of teaching the material and making it easier to understand.Michael, 127 lessons with Phillip
Mr. Phillip has been great so far with helping my son in AP history. My son has only been with him for 2 sessions so far. I can't wait to see how far he can take him.Karimah, 5 lessons with Phillip
So far so good!
In my son's first session, Phillip’s demeanor with my son is seemingly going well. They seem to speak the same language and Phillip has put my son at ease. Off to a great start!Tara J, 4 lessons with Phillip

Phillip is a greater tutor
Phillip is a great teacher to improve your reading and writing skills. He is a nice, funny patient teacher and will greatly help your common skills. He is a great teacher in terms of personality. I do not remember him raising his voice ever, just staying calm as he ever would be. He would say something funny and we would laugh. Even if you forget your homework, he will just allow you to do your homework in class. It's like how a good cookie is crisp and sweet, except it's in human form, and he does this without affecting your learning ability. He will also improve your common core skills and teach you tips that you may never learn in school. Since he's a a tutor, not a class teacher, you will learn it more effectively. Therefore, I consider Phillip as an awesome teacher and would greatly recommend him if you want to improve your writing skills.Guoliang, 83 lessons with Phillip
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
My 15-year-old son is having weekly tutoring sessions with Phil on several subjects. We have been having him for a few months. Phil has been very knowledgeable and patient with my son and us parents. My son has been understanding more about each subject. We would recommend Phil to any parent who is looking for academic help for their teens. Thank you, Phil.Xin, 27 lessons with Phillip
