May 21, 2013 He is very easy on most students, but hard on others. He is good at teaching basic programming concepts but he doesn't know more advanced ones. Flag Rating

Jul 11, 2011 He knows his subject well. Some of the projects were really mundane but I did well in his class. Sometimes made me feel uncomfortable when he called me "pumpkin" or "sweet pea". Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 I do not enjoy his teachings that much, although I think much of my opinion derives from the class skill level. If you have a question, he will try to answer it but you might now get an answer. Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 he doesn't give out As even when you deserve them. he doesn't understand that this should not be a very difficult class until you choose to take it after freshman year. Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 Mr. Phillips is a good teacher, but is not very helpful with questions, probably because he rushes questions to try and help so many students. Overall, I enjoy his class and he knows his subject well. Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 (Programming '09) Explains things well but the examples took too long and some of the projects were annoying. Should let advanced students use their knowledge in their programs. Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 The examples we did took a long time, but we had a lot of fun this year. i like being able to go off on our own to make games. i wish we could do that a little more often. not just at the end of year. Flag Rating

May 24, 2010 He teaches easy concepts but is tough when it comes to grading. He's very helpful and fun, though. I enjoyed when he would play some of his instruments in class as background music. --Love, Batman! Flag Rating

Jul 02, 2008 His class can get boring at times, but you definitely learn a lot and can have fun. He is a really smart guy and a great teacher. However, computer science is not always the most interesting subject. Flag Rating

Dec 01, 2006 The previous posters must have gotten on his bad side (didn't do great in class). Mr. Phillips is awesome, I only had his class once, did great in it, great guy, great musician, good applet coder. Flag Rating
