EducationI hold a Bachelor of Economics (Honours equivalent) from my country's top University. I have also worked in the Macroeconomics department of the one of the biggest investment banks in my home country for nearly two years, and have now finished my masters degree in Economics at USYD (HD average).
ExperienceI have been a private tutor since high school. Most people tell me I have the natural gift of teaching, as I'm very patient and can explain complex concepts/ideas in a rather simple way.
I have done quite a bit of private tutoring during my bachelor, both for bachelor and masters students (references upon request). So far, I have tutored over 40 students in 2015 mainly from Sydney Uni, UNSW, UTS and Macquarie Uni.
I have been tutoring for Sydney Uni over two years now and one year for UNSW (current tutor for both).
At USYD, I have completed the following units:
ECMT6002 (Applied Econometrics)
ECMT6003 (Applied Business Forecasting)
ECMT6006 (Applied Financial Econometrics)
ECMT6007 (Analysis of Panel Data)
ECON6008 (Intl Money and Finance)
ECON6023 (International Trade)
ECON6903 (Topics - Bus Cycles & Mon. Pol)
ECON6906 (Topics in Development)
and ECON6910 (Topics in Macro)
My specialities are Macroeconomics and Econometrics.
I'm not sure what's up with this website recently, but it doesn't disclose the hourly fee anymore. In my case, it's $50 per hour for undergraduate units. For postgrad, please get in touch.
HobbiesI love all sorts of music (used to be play the piano and trumpet) and I'm starting to collect music from all over the world. I also enjoy spending time with friends and learning new languages.

Felipe tutored me in Time Series Econometric. He helps me a lot for my final exam. He had great understanding of the subjects and able to explain the topics really well. He is very recommended Tutor.
Phillip was a wonderful teacher who helped me greatly to understand my econometrics and macroeconomics units. His teaching style is great and he will tailor it to suit your needs. For example, I had some issues with the maths behind some of the theory and Philip was patient and helped me to understand it. He definitely has a gift for making complex ideas more simple and applies real world examples which always helps. I couldn't recommend Philip more highly!
Felipe tutored me in Maths and Econometrics. He had a thorough understanding of the subjects and was able to explain areas of difficulty to me clearly. I'd have no hesitation in recommending him!
I hired Felipe to help me with economics and finance. These are two subjects I have never come across before and had very little understanding of. However with Felipe's help, he was able to explain complex topics and make them easier to understand and get a good grasp of, whilst being very patient and friendly. He is very reliable and always answers tricky questions you may have through email or phone very quickly. He is very intelligent and knowledgeable with the subjects that I needed help with and I would highly recommend him!
Phillip is special kind of tutor, he is patient and extremely knowledgeable across the economic spectrum from theory to econometric modeling. I work full time and have a family, Phillip was always flexible with his schedule and his communication skills are excellent, he could explain complicated concepts mathematically or with simple diagrams. What really sets Phillip apart from not only other Tutors but from other human beings is that he genuinely cares. If it is a high distinction, but more importantly confidence you require, then don't look any further than right here.
The tuition I received met my needs in every way. The lesson was delivered in a easy to understand, friendly manner, I was pleased with tutoring session with Phillip P and could strongly recommend him to anyone who needs assistance in understanding economics. Tomas
