Hello, my name is Philip S. and I hold a Master's in Math Education from Georgia State University and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Morehouse College. I have been tutoring students K-12 for the past 15 years as well as some adults here and there. I originally started tutoring when my college roommate and I bought a Japanese math and reading franchise. The franchise's teaching techniques were based on a Japanese style of teaching that focused on guiding students in a way that allo...

Philip helped my son with graphing parallel and perpendicular lines in the coordinate grid. He is also helping him understand how to examine an equation and predict what the lines should look like when graphed. My son also expressed how patient and effective Philip is at teaching him these math concepts. I look forward to seeing my son continue to grow from Philip's instruction.

Phillip was able to hit the ground running with my daughter during their tutoring session. He explained some of the ACT Math concepts that she didn't understand. He also explained how to use her calculator properly to calculate Math problems. I would highly recommend him.

I would like to say Philip was a very nice and patient tutor. Prior to setting up an appointment. He answered all of my questions about the session.He was on time and provided feedback about the tutoring service after the tutoring. Thanks

My son was pleased with the tutoring provided by Philip. Provided key assessment on skill level and helped reinforced skills previously acquired. Looking forward to future lessons to achieve success in mathematics.
- Joseph B. from Lithia Springs, GA
My daughter was reluctant to get tutoring for the SAT. Philip broke down the benefits of scoring high and I think my daughter was impressed. He's super relatable and was easy to talk to. My daughter got more out of our first session than she thought she would. Thank you Philip, looking forward to next week.

Philip has been great with my 5 year old son so far. We?re doing a series of ongoing tutoring, and the morning after the first lesson my son asked if he?d have class with Mr Smith again that day and was upset he had to actually wait another day until the next session. Philip is making the lessons fun while also challenging, and is able to point out ways to improve without making my son feel upset or frustrated like he is when I point out the same thing! He says ?5 stars?, and that his favorite part of the lessons is ?everything!?
- Alex P. from Boston, MA
Phillip was very patient and engaging. He gave substantive feedback that can be quickly applied. The session went well and I will definitely work with him again. Thank you!

Philip tutored my son in Geometry. He was patient and knowledgeable. My son has struggled with Math and has often been discouraged. I was happy to see that he was paying attention and catching on to the material covered. Philip was kind and not judgmental. I know that helped my son to settle down and engage in the lesson.

Phil has been great and does a wonderful job challenging our eight grade son in his Algebra lessons. We began with in person lessons but when COVID-19 forced us to move online Phil handled the transition seamlessly and is now getting our son prepared for his Geometry class next year. I highly recommend him!
- Amber A. from Lawrenceville, GA
Philip gave me the insight and confidence I needed to study for the GRE. He was patient and validated the necessary skills I need to practice to be successful on the rest. I would highly recommend him, for children and adults! He knows all the math tricks needed to avoid math pitfalls.
- Charlett H. from Fayetteville, GA
Another great session with Phillip. Amara spoke very highly of the fact that he showed her things her teacher had not shown her and said it made doing the problems make sense to her.
- Shevetta M. from Douglasville, GA
Philip S. made a great first impression with me and my high school junior. My son has struggled with math for many years and he was excited after the first session! Philip was able to help him better understand his Algebra 2 and Physics homework. We plan to continue working with Philip with hopes of helping my soon become more confident and successful with math, science, study skills, test taking and SAT help. Sounds like a lot ... but we checked out the Wyzant reviews and that?s why we chose Philip!
- Araba D. from Atlanta, GA
Very impressed with Philip?s approach and delivery. Directs session and provides constructive feedback. Optimistic about the new year and my son?s preparation.
- Claudette G. from Powder Springs, GA
My son has been applying Phillip's testing techniques and we have seen his practice scores increase by 5 points. He's really enjoying the sessions.
- Stephen S. from Douglasville, GA
Mr. Phillip is a wonderful math teacher. He has been helping me prepare for the math portion of the GRE and I like how patient he is. Mr. Philip is willing to try different methods that works best to help me understand the math problems we have been working on. Without a doubt, Mr. Philip is professional and knowledgeable about the subject he tutors.
- Misha B. from Austell, GA
Mr. S. is as advertised...a knowledgeable and inspiring teacher who's able to connect with our son, and get him focused and engaged with the material. My son said his Algebra II tutoring session flew by and he was psyched to do the practice problems Mr. S. assigned for his next session. Could not have asked for more from a first session. He's definitely a keeper!
