We've tried several tutors before, including Varsity Tutors. :) Phillip is outstanding. He works together with your child analyzing every aspect of the question and answers options. Unlike other tutors who spend first 30 minutes talking about how great they are, he started with introduction of strategies and techniques to be used when working on the SAT. We all are very pleased with the process, no wasted time, very encouraging and engaging studies. If you are looking for a professional to really help your child, Phillip should be your choice.

I took away tools for annotating first thing. Made great suggestion for future reads to inform my writing. Examined past writing and gave feedback. I will use P. again.

From session # 1, my daughter felt much more comfortable about how to approach the ACT test. Phillip offered her instruction but also helpful hints on how to approach each section of the test. She was so much more confident after just one session. Highly recommend Phillip.

I came to Phillip with only a week left before the AP lang exam. I had not taken the corresponding AP course, so I really did not know anything about the exam format/grading/timing/etc. Not only did Phillip provide me with helpful exam resources and thoughtful analysis of my essays, he also gave me lots of needed encouragement! The fact that he has read thousands of AP lang exam essays as an AP grader really made his tutoring excellent. After only two lessons, I felt very well prepared for the exam. Anyone who needs help with AP lang exam prep should come to Philip.

After a couple of tutoring sessions for AP English Language and Composition, Phillip has really improved my confidence for the demanding essays on the test. Having someone who knows exactly what the AP graders are looking for has been a tremendous help.

My son actually enjoyed his time with Phillip because he helped him get started on his outline & added bullet points. I feel my son felt more confident after 1 session.

Phillip is not only highly qualified but very in touch with teenagers. He is definitely committed to their success and willing to work to determine their areas off greatest need. He also takes time to touch base with parents and is receptive to their input.

First meeting with a great start. My daughters felt positive and motivated. He treated each one individually with respect and understanding. Well prepared for the first session and organized.
