He?s nice and he knows what he?s talking about. He preps before each session based on my goals and we use our time wisely. He then gives a summary after each time we meet with things I can work on.

Phillip was very helpful to my son who was writing an essay on a novella. He helped him find evidence supporting his thesis and tie his ideas together in an organized way. My son reported back to me, ?he?s really teaching me how to write .? We are very impressed with Phillip?s instruction.

Phillip helped my son with corrections and improvements on one of his AP English Language essays. Phillip analyzed his writing and gave him thoughtful & knowledgeable feedback on ways to improve his essay as well as helpful advice on how to improve his writing skills. My son came away from the lesson feeling very motivated. We are very grateful to Phillip for his help.

Phillip tutored my son for one of his history papers. Phillip was not given the topic until the last minute, yet he offered great comments and stimulated thoughts for my son to go for next step. Phillip was very patient and really mastered the skill of effective commutations.
- Sophie Y. from Trenton, NJ
My son had to write an essay on the Canterbury Tales for a sophomore English class. Phillip was prepared for the session and had reviewed the tales in advance. He helped with analysis, adding supporting details, and organizing the main points. I would unequivocally recommend him.
- Lenore A. from New York, NY
We went over my AP Lang rhetorical analysis and Mr.P gave me some really beneficial insight about my writing. He also provided other prep materials to help me prepare for the test in May.

- Jaye S. from Mission Viejo, CA
My daughter got SAT reading lessons with Phillip. After 1st lesson, she already has changed her views on the SAT test. Phillip taught strategies and she can apply it to the test immediately. My kid and I are satisfied with his lessons.
- Sumun K. from Novi, MI
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.
- Olga L. from Torrance, CA
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.
- Elliot W. from Bloomfield Hills, MI
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.
- Michele B. from Brighton, MI
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.
- Lynn W. from Orinda, CA
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.
- H Y. from West Linn, OR
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.
- Paul or Holly B. from Farmington, MI
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.
- Susan R. from Franklin, MI
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.
