Hi, I have been working in the industry for 13 years. I am an ARB registered practicing Architect and an experienced Architectural Studio teacher.

Methodology

I try to simplify and compartmentalise things for my students so that they do not get overwhelmed. I set them achievable tasks each week so that they can focus on improving each task with confidence. My focus is to build up all their skills slowly over time, so that they become well rounded Architects

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Philip will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I work for an Architectural practice in Nottingham. I am also a design studio tutor in Loughborough. I teach on the undergraduate degree course. I went to university in Leicester for my undergraduate degree and Nottingham for my post grad. I am proficient in Revit, Autocad, Sketchup, Lumion, Enscape, VR Training, Photoshop, just to name a few.

Perfect! I really enjoyed my lesson with Philip. He is very knowledgeable with Lumion and was able to help me achieve my aim. I look forward to continuing to work with Philip learning how to improve the quality of my renders.

Philip's response

Michelle already had a basic knowledge of Lumion, so we could explore some of the more advanced materiality features. It was a very enjoyable session.

R
Réka

Perfect! Philip is exactly the tutor, who I was looking for. He is giving me his best knowledge/experience and helping to improve my skills in the area. Definitely wanna work with him again in the future.

Philip's response

Reka is a determined student. She has taken initiative in learning various Architectural software on her own. She is keen to improve her technical understanding of buildings and materiality.

Phil was a former colleague of mine. Throughout my time working with him Phil demonstrated great skill at breaking down and explaining complex concepts in ways which were well structured and easy to understand for those working with him. He has a far reaching knowledge of architectural theory and is very technically adept, making him a very insightful and practical tutor.

Philip is a great all rounder and his passion for all aspects of architecture shines through. His extensive experience in both industry and academia helps bring the most complex topic to life and Phil is adept at catering to your needs, challenging but instilling confidence that will provide a solid foundation for future pursuits. Calm and reassuring, he is a greys choice for all levels of tuition, would definitely recommend Phil to give you the edge!

Interview with Philip

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Philip — I have been tutoring design studio at a number of Universities for a while now. I found that most Architecture students get thrown in the deep end, having to develop many different skills at once. I am here to assist with this skills gap.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Philip — My main teaching experience is as an Architectural design studio tutor. Rather than a teacher, a tutor is more of a mental coach, or a manager of ideas. We guide students through projects, moulding the way they think and teaching them fundamental skills along the way. I enjoy teaching those fundamental skills, such as basic sketching skills, visualising space in 3D, and properly analysing Precedents.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Philip — Yes, my old undergraduate tutors inspired me with how patient they were with their teaching. They passed on their philosophies on the subject, which I still refer to today.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Philip — Patience, being articulate, and knowing how to motivate each student. Everyone is different, so you have to be personal with your students to use rest and their personalities and tendencies.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Philip — On the day of a review, we decided to work right up to the last minute. Unfortunately there was traffic on the way into uni, it poured down with heavy rain. Once I got in, the plotters broke down. We pitched up to the review 1 hour late and got a telling off by the tutors. Moral of the story: don't leave your work till the last minute, be better organised.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Philip — A subject where the expectation is that students have to work around the clock to get a good mark. The challenge is to get students to work efficiently and keep a good balanced life.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Philip — I enjoy tutoring and talking through Architecture with students who are passionate about the subject.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Philip — I am a friendly, considerate and passionate teacher that enjoys passing on my knowledge and experience to my students.
