Philip Bonneville

My name is Philip Bonneville, and I offer private tutoring in mathematics, my specialty, at and above the high school level, as well as in computer science, physics, and chemistry.

I studied math at Washington University in St. Louis and will be staying in the St. Louis area until eventually beginning PhD studies in mathematics. In the meantime, I am excited at the prospect of helping students in the St. Louis area better understand their math and science coursework, while I also work on some research projects with professors at Wash U part-time. Please see the tutoring page for detailed information on the types of courses for which I am available as a tutor.

At Washington University, I challenged myself with coursework far exceeding the normal requirements for a math major, taking, for instance, a total of nine graduate mathematics courses as well as a number of undergraduate and graduate courses in other fields like computer science and economics. Knowledge of advanced math allows me to think like a mathematician and impart this more sophisticated perspective on the subject to students, and my knowledge of fields like computer science, physics, chemistry, and economics gives me an understanding of which mathematical concepts are most essential for applications.

I also have experience serving in a variety of instructional roles. In high school I worked on occasion as a mathematics tutor and also led a science club, in which I explained topics and conducted some basic experiments in chemistry and physics for a group of middle-schoolers, for the length of four years. Since enrolling in college, I have graded for one math course, graded and served as a teaching assistant for another (holding a well-attended weekly office hour for students), and held, starting this past spring, a position as graduate resource in calculus for the Deneb STARS program at Wash U. This coming year I am looking to reach out to the broader St. Louis community.

Whether your student is struggling to make it through Algebra II or yearning for more challenge than his or her school can provide, I would love to play a role in helping make your child's education as successful as possible.
