Tutor in math, writing, history, psychology, computer science, Ph.D.

Hi, my name is Philip. I am a professional tutor because I love helping students of all ages gain knowledge and skill in subjects of interest to them. But I am more than just a tutor. I am also an independent scholar with three published books, along with four websites that present my books. And I have a Seattle meetup group, where I have been presenting ideas and leading discussions for more than five years. I have a knack for making complex ideas seem intuitive and easy to understand thro... [more]

Writing

I have published professional research papers. a doctoral dissertation, and several scholarly books. I am a perfectionist in all aspects of writing. If you would like to hone your ability to write clear, coherent, compelling prose, I would love to help you!


Statistics

In my statistics tutoring, I am currently focusing on data science, which is a combination of programming and statistics.


Java

I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. Although my specialty was computer architecture, I studied all facets of computer science in the process of pursuing my degree. This study included extensive computer programming in a number of programming languages. I am currently tutoring students in the following C-based languages: C, C++, C#, Java, and Python.


English


Government & Politics

I have been fascinated with understanding the purpose and the nature of government, and I have published a theory of this topic in a book. In the course of developing this theory, I studied American history and American legal history in substantial depth.


Psychology

I spent a number of years in doctoral studies in cognitive psychology at U.C. Berkeley before I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. Since then, I have continued pursuing my passionate interest in understanding how the mind works, and I recently published my theory in a book.

Proofreading


SAT Writing

I have published professional research papers, a doctoral dissertation, and several scholarly books. I am a perfectionist in all aspects of writing. I help students hone their ability to write clear, coherent, compelling prose. I have developed a set of guidelines for writing the SAT essay, and these guidelines include a set of six steps for writing the essay efficiently and effectively.


Physical Science


Probability

The theories of discrete probability and continuous probability provide the basis for relevant theories in statistics. But probability is a fascinating topic in its own right, and I enjoy it even more than I do statistics! I used the theory of continuous probability, as employed in queuing theory, in my doctoral dissertation in computer science.


Discrete Math

I have a Ph.D. in computer science, and discrete math is a basic subject in computer science.


C++

I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. Although my specialty was computer architecture, I studied all facets of computer science in the process of pursuing my degree. This study included extensive computer programming in a number of programming languages, including C and C++.

Computer Programming

I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. Although my specialty was computer architecture, I studied all facets of computer science in the process of pursuing my degree. This study included extensive computer programming in a number of programming languages. I am currently tutoring students in C, C++, C#, Java, Python, assembly languages, and the xv6 multiprocessor operating system. If you would like help with another language or system, please let me know, and I'll see if I can help you!


Computer Science

I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley. Although my specialty was computer architecture, I studied all facets of computer science in the process of pursuing my degree. As a graduate student, I took an avid interest in teaching. I applied for and obtained a grant to develop lecture notes for the year-long upper division class in computer architecture.


Linux

I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from U.C. Berkeley, and Berkeley Unix was the operating system on our computers, so I became highly conversant in using it. Linux is compatible with Unix in its user interface and in its functionality. I have installed Linux on one of my hard drives, and I boot to it when I wish to run Linux.
