Philip understood what I am looking for and my goals. He was easy to follow and explains the lesson well.

We just had our first lesson and Philip was great. Connected with my son and explained things in a very understandable way. Good balance between theory and practical exercises. Also was excellent at communicating with me prior to the lesson to learn more about my son and introduce himself.

Phillip is a great teacher! He customizes his approach to what you need and gives you exercises to practice at home between lessons (going out of his way)!

Phillip was very patient with me, and tried to teach me everything he knew. I could sense his passion!

Was really anxious as an adult starting something new and different but he put my mind at ease and I have learned a lot already.
