Phillip is the best tutor ever. He is really funny, he knows his stuff and he is a good motivator.

at Menlo School

He was always helpful and did his best to explain the content to me. He was extremely knowledgeable about all topics and could relate his knowledge into teaching. I would definitely do another tutoring session with Philip! He was also hip and cool.

at Walter Johnson HS

Philip is an extremely energized and upbeat tutor! He guides you through all the basics, throws in his own experiences and techniques, and leaves you feeling 1000x better about the material than at the start of that day's lesson! Great tutor!
