I recently graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, with minors in Chemistry and Classical Studies. I was also the Latin tutor for my university for the last three of my four years in college. I enjoyed being able to help other students with their coursework. I have the most experience tutoring Latin, but I am also qualified to teach a wide range of math and science subjects, with math all the way to upper level Calculus and Differential Equations, and with science, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. I try to motivate students to enjoy what they are studying. If a student is struggling with a topic, I explain the topic in as many ways as I can so that the material is fully understood. I believe firmly in being a lifelong learner and try to instill this in my students. In my free time I enjoy learning new languages casually, biking and watching Netflix.
I excelled in my chemical engineering studies in college while fitting in a classical studies minor as well. I received only three B's in my chemical engineering courses in my four years of college, with the rest being all A's. I always enjoyed studying with friends in my classes because I could explain many concepts and problems to them when I had a good grasp of them.
I was the outstanding senior in chemical engineering at my university. I have passed the fundamentals of engineering (FE) chemical exam. I understand things conceptually and am able to explain the concepts in multiple ways.
I have close to four years of tutoring experience in Latin. I have taken four years of Latin in high school and two semesters in college. I received a 5 on the AP Latin exam in my senior year of high school. I have experience working with translation of Ovid, Vergil, Caesar, and some Cicero. I have used the Cambridge Latin courses in high school, and the Wheelock's textbook in college.
I am able to help with translations, both English to Latin, and vice versa, and help with the language at any level (high school or university). I am also capable to help with topics in the chemical engineering curriculum. Please feel free to message me to schedule lessons or otherwise reach out!

Philip has helped me and taught me so much within an hour of our 1-on-1 tutoring session. We worked on my assignment for Java and Philip has helped me understand concepts that were in Java. I'm glad to have reached out to Philip for immediate help.Siam, 1 lesson with Phillip
Phillip taught my son son how to use methods in Java and the concept of simple objects. My son liked his use of analogies and examples to further explain the concepts. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.Rebecca , 1 lesson with Phillip

Phillip knew the material very well. He explained the concepts in detail. He was also patient and went over the concepts a few times until I understood. I highly recommend Phillip for principles of Chemical engineering concepts. I will definitely reach out to him in the future.Guido, 1 lesson with Phillip
Phillip is intelligent and could explain engineering concepts when I couldn't understand him, he also gave me some useful resources to help study for my classes! I will definitely schedule another appointment with him soon!Shinduri, 2 lessons with Phillip
Great Teacher, Great Help!
Phillip R. was nice and very helpful. I understand the electron configuration and orbital notation a lot better and Phillip R. was great at explaining that and the Principles that go along with that. I had a great 1st lesson, thanks again for helping me!Carrie, 1 lesson with Phillip
Phillip was great. He answered all my questions and went through my practice test and showed me how to read the problems. He is very knowledgeable of the content and I will contact him again for another session.Stacy, 1 lesson with Phillip
