“Philip came to my house to help my daughter improve the scores on her SATs. He also allowed her younger brother to sit and listen in. Her overall scores did improve the next time she sat for the SAT exam. Instead of trying to cram vocabulary words and math formulas into a short lesson, Philip taught her tips on how to take standardized tests. The children were very comfortable in his presence.” -Stephen, Glen Head Parent

CONGREGATION EMANU-EL. ONE EAST SIXTY-FIFTH STREET. NEW YORK 10021
I am writing on behalf of Mr. Phil Becker who has proven himself to
be a prized member of my faculty for 3 years. Each week Phil brings to
his 7th grade history class a unique curriculum from inception to
conclusion. In between the class's 2 hour time frame, his students are
completely engrossed in the class material and have even been known to
continue talking about the lesson throughout their busy week.
It is clear in every way that Phil cares enormously about his
students and they about him. His planning is meticulous, thoughtful,
dedicated, and requires enormous amounts of energy to prepare.
Moreover, he has even attained the distinction of having 7th graders
forgo family events in order not to miss his classes. Indeed, the
parents of these students understand why this is, as they too, as
guests, have attended a few of Phil's classes and have come away
enlightened and enthusiastic. In fact, one parent requested that Phil
write a high school scholarship recommendation for his son.
It may sound as if my praise and fondness for Phil are a bit too
fantastic-but this is not the case. He is truly all I have mentioned.
I am thrilled to have him on my staff and recommend him highly for a
teaching position for grades 7 and up (the material may be too
sophisticated for children younger than 13).
