05/21/13 - He is a very laid back teacher who doesn't go very hard on his students, most of the time. He has a weird obsession for females though and treats them way better than the males in the class. He somewhat knows what we are learning but it is very easy to go outside of class and quickly learn things that he doesn't know. He also likes to choose one or two kids in each class that he hates. The programming class is mostly fun, although APCS isn't that fun. Show More Show Less

07/11/11 - 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". Show More Show Less

05/24/10 - 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. Show More Show Less

05/24/10 - 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. Show More Show Less

05/24/10 - (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. Show More Show Less

05/24/10 - 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. Show More Show Less

05/24/10 - 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! Show More Show Less
