Very patient and very adaptive tutor!

I was nervous about getting back into Arabic after a long time without studying it. Philip has been absolutely phenomenal - somehow he was immediately able to identify the level I'm at, and with him I've realized that I remember far more Arabic than I even realized. His instruction has been the perfect balance of challenging and relaxed, making me feel comfortable and confident in lessons while also challenging me to go farther. I've really enjoyed his friendly attitude and his incredible ability to adapt to my needs, and couldn't possibly recommend him more!
