Tutor profile: Philip C.
A Writing Tutor With Unique Education, Experience, and Ability
I have a Master's degree in Philosophy and enjoy teaching, training and tutoring. I'm well versed in English grammar, style and college essay writing. I also have deep work experience with graphic design, photography, web design and development, project management, business, and technical writing.
As part of my Master's degree, I designed a curriculum for high school seniors and co-taught it with Chad Miller (2012 teacher of the year in Hawaii) at Kailua High School in 2006. I went on to teach English in Japan for two years as part of the JET Programme (2006-2008). I've also tutored/trained college essay writing and graphic design.
