About Philip

I am an experienced teacher of adults and young people, with several years experience as an instructor at the high school and college levels. I am comfortable teaching groups or tutoring one-on-one with young people from high school age onwards and with adults of all ages. I can adapt to whatever level of technology the student is comfortable with, from paper textbooks and notes, to computerized learning via web-based instruction.

I speak four languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Sena (an African language). I can help groups or individuals who want to begin learning English or to improve their English reading, writing, and speaking skills (ESL-ESOL, high school, and college English).

I can teach groups or tutor individuals who want to learn to speak Spanish for personal or business use, from beginning through advanced levels. And I can teach those who want to learn Portuguese for personal or business use, from beginning through intermediate levels.

I have lived overseas for 15 years in three countries in southern and western Africa. I have extensive experience working with people of other cultures, and adapting to living overseas. So I can tutor business people individually or present seminars to groups about Intercultural Communications, Cross-cultural Relations and overseas living.

I have done master's studies in Christianity and doctoral studies in cultural anthropology and world religions. So I offer seminars about the major religions of the world, especially those with significant numbers of followers in the United States today. I can teach church groups, club meetings and business people about Christianity and Islam, in seminars that are balanced and objective, not partisan or antagonistic.

Thank you for considering me as your tutor, teacher, or seminar presenter. I look forward to collaborating with you to help you reach your learning and life goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humankind in all its historical, cultural, and social dimensions.

Cultural Anthropology in particular studies the ways humans have learned to survive and thrive around the world and across the millennia, while developing a huge variety of kinship and family systems, languages, and ways of organizing human society and its institutions.

I have lived overseas for 15 years, and speak four languages. I've done doctoral studies in cultural anthropology and world religions, and taught these and other subjects at the college level. Let me help you investigate our world and the fascinating people we share it with by tutoring you or your group in Cultural Anthropology!

Bible Studies

The Bible is arguably the most influential book ever written. More than 2 billion Christians seek truth, comfort, wisdom, and God's will for their lives in its divinely-inspired words.
I am a committed Christian with a Master of Divinity degree, doctoral studies, and 20+ years of missionary and pastoral experience. My theological heritage is Wesleyan-Holiness, but I call brothers and sisters all those who acknowledge Jesus as Lord and the Bible as God's Word.
Let me lead your church group, club, or other seminar group on a journey into the Word of God and the theological traditions that shape our Christian faith!

English

English is a subject that most students dislike, but one which every student must master. If you need help with your English, I can teach you to speak, read, and write well.

I have two earned degrees, and am currently finishing doctoral studies. I have taught English classes overseas and done private tutoring in the U.S. I am well-versed in current English grammar and usage, as well as the APA and Chicago/Turabian reference systems. As a native speaker of English who also speaks several foreign languages, I understand English from the inside and the outside too.

ESL/ESOL

¿El inglés te está dando dolores de cabeza? No te desesperes, pues ¡te puedo ayudar!

Is English giving you a headache? Don't worry, I can help you!

I can help you learn to speak English like you were born speaking it! I have taught English to high school students in Africa, and tutored Korean graduate students in English at a seminary in the U.S. I am a native speaker of English, but also a fluent speaker of Spanish and Portuguese. I therefore know what it is like to struggle to learn a language. I also know how to help speakers of other languages understand the way English works.

Grammar

English grammar is this system of principles that describes how we form words and organize them into sentences which clearly communicate meanings to others who speak English.

Many students find grammar study difficult, but this is often because of the way it has been taught. Instead of giving them lists of rules to memorize, I teach grammar by helping students discover its principles in action in real-life spoken and written English. In this way, students can see how "grammar makes sense."

I have two earned degrees and am currently finishing my doctorate. I am a native speaker of English, but also speak several other languages. I understand "how English works," and can teach your student to understand it too.

Portuguese

Portuguese is the seventh most spoken language in the world, with some 220 millions speakers on four continents. From Rio de Janeiro to Lisbon, to exotic places like Luanda, Maputo and Macau, Portuguese offers a rich mix of history, culture, business opportunities, and fun!
Let me help you learn to speak, understand, read and write Portuguese. We'll work together moving at your pace, on your schedule, using interesting and challenging learning materials that target the kind of Portuguese you want to learn.
With practice and commitment from you, and skilled tutoring from me, we'll have you speaking Portuguese faster than you would have thought possible!

Proofreading

Do you need someone to help you find and correct spelling, grammar and usage errors in your essay, term paper, thesis, or business document? Do APA, MLA or Chicago style leave you mystified?

I can help! I have experience proofreading papers and dissertations at the graduate level, and experience teaching and grading essays at the undergraduate level. I can help you find and correct your writing mistakes. And I can help you learn to proofread your own work, so you won't turn it in full of errors in the future!

Let me give you the proofreading help you need. Together, we can make you a better writer and communicator. And that means better grades in school and better performance in business!

Public Speaking

Does the idea of speaking to a group send shivers up your spine? Do you get tongue-tied when you have to give a presentation? I can help!

I am a skilled, professional speaker, college teacher, and seminar presenter, with nearly 30 years of public speaking experience. I have addressed groups of as few as 10 people and as many as 1,000. I have spoken at fundraisers, preached at church services, and presented workshops on college campuses.
I'll help you get over your fear, learn to organize your thoughts, show you how to prepare effective notes, and deliver your speech or presentation like a pro.

Religion

Around the world, people search for and find meaning in life through their religious and spiritual beliefs. In the United States live people who practice virtually every religion in the world — Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, African Traditional Religions, and hundreds of others.

I am a committed Christian with real empathy and deep respect for all peoples and their cultural and religious traditions, gained through 15 years living in Africa and refined by my doctoral studies.

Let me lead your church group, club, or employees as we explore one or more of the world's religious traditions in well-planned seminars tailored to fit your group's needs and interests.

Spanish

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States today, and the third most spoken in the world. Let me help you learn to speak, understand, read and write Spanish. We'll work together, moving at your pace, on your schedule. We'll use interesting and challenging learning materials that target the kind of Spanish you want to learn. With practice and commitment on your part, and skilled tutoring from me, we'll have you speaking Spanish faster than you would have thought possible!

Writing

From high school essays to college term papers to business reports, everyone needs to know how to write well. I can help you learn to write clearly and concisely, so you can say exactly what you mean in that paper or report.

I have earned undergraduate and graduate degrees and done doctoral studies, which together have developed my writing skills to a high degree. I have taught college courses which put a premium on written work.

Through my studies and teaching, I have gained an excellent grasp of current American English grammar, syntax, vocabulary and usage, and I can teach them to you.
