As the IT Coordinator at ACS Doha International School Philip has been an invaluable asset. His skills and vision helped build our school.
Philip is an inquiring and critical thinker. He approaches the unfamiliar with confidence and instills the same in his students. He is open-minded and creative, sharing this in the classroom though his skillful teaching practice. He is a good communicator and has a great deal of integrity, something I respect him for. While he has significant experience at the college and university level, his teaching stills are highly suited to middle years and high school. His key strengths would be flexibility, an active approach to problem solving and a willingness to actively engage with and embrace new learning technologies.He has demonstrated cultural sensitivity and has an open-minded inquiring intellect. Philip would be an outstanding addition to any team.
Time and again, Mr. Philip’s energy, resourcefulness and hard work have helped his students achieve a new level of knowledge and proficiency in the English language. He has shaped the course of his students in many ways. The Bank of Thailand is fortunate to have such a creative and dynamic teacher.
Philip has a way of engaging even the most reluctant students. He scaffolds lessons in ways that allows for success; his self-help guides and tutorials have been excellent to support learning.
