Philip M Russell Ltd was formed in 2011 after I left full time teaching and went freelance. The company follows my two passions. Making Videos and teaching. So now I do both. Being a Science and Maths teacher I have tended to make science videos and currently we have over 300 of them covering much of the syllabuses of Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology from GCSE to A Level. Over the past 10 years or so I have collected most of the science equipment to teach and demonstrate all the science experiments carried out in schools and colleges and a lot more.
I started making videos when I was 10 borrowing my fathers VHS colour camera, now 50 years later my sons and I make all types of videos. Now we use some of the latest digital video cameras and Blackmagic Da Vinci Resolve to achieve professional quality colour graded films.
I have been a scientist all my life and my Sons have followed me. We are all keen environmentalists and share this passion with others through aour weekly podcasts on Going Green. As well as making the Podcast we also video this creating a video of the Podcast at the same time. Each week we look at a different issue and what you can do about it.
I have now been a teacher for forty years, teaching in that time in a Junior School several secondary schools in a College and at University. A have additionally taught in industry and training the armed Services.
I teach and have taught science from year 4 up to University. Since my teacher training I have taught Maths and science to A level. When I arrived in schools to start my teaching I arrived at the same time as did the computers. I started and ran the largest computing night school in Hampshire for a few years. This is a skill I have kept up with , teaching programming, database design and Website design and management.
I love playing the organ. I might not be very good, but I enjoy playing.
I currently own an Eminent Alpha 32 organ with full pedal board, this is a very realistic sounding church organ. Next to it I have a Ringway 1000 organ which I want to upgrade into a theatre organ also with a full pedal board.
Prior to this I owned a Yamaha HS8 for many years.
