'We have a huge amount of admiration and gratitude for the care Phil takes in tutoring our daughter. He customises the work to suit her exact needs and teaches her in a way that she can absorb the information. He has taken the time to understand our daughter and set realistic and helpful goals. Phil is wonderful at growing with us and we see him as a major part of our daughter's education.
“Small Steps Learning has helped my son to engage with School again after a period of missing school. The tutors are respectful, patient and supportive and have helped him to be more confident in his abilities. The sessions start with setting of goals and ends with a review from tutor and student. The one-on-one face-to-face session format in the comfort of our home have been a success for our child”
"To connect with a 13 year old is harder than university level quantum physics. But to connect, build trust and engage is what makes Phil truly unique. A super nice guy that has not only helped our child immensely but become a regular familiar friend around our living room on Saturday mornings"
“Phil is a unique individual. He is a teacher, a mentor, a guide – not just for my son Max, but for me as his parent as well. From the very first time he walked into our home, he brought a sense of peace and understanding, and I felt hope that my neurodiverse son had finally found someone who could not only teach him, but nurture him to capitalise on his unique talents. My hope was proven correct. Max has been working with Phil for a number of years. Phil adapted to Max’s learning needs and preferred ways of interacting. He brought a routine into Max’s life that Max enjoys and looks forward to daily. Max has flourished. And I have benefited as well – from Phil’s wisdom and guidance when I struggle with parenting a neurodiverse son, and from the regular ‘tidbits’ that Phil sends – helpful courses, or books, or articles, or equipment – things to help Max and myself improve our daily lives. I highly recommend Phil to anyone who is considering a tutor for their neurodiverse child. He has been a godsend, and I am grateful every day that he helps us.”
