« Philippa has been one of the most open-minded and optimistic people I have ever come across. As a top-graded medical student herself, she has always been extremely helpful in both inspiring and encouraging the others (and me) to work a little bit harder and smarter. One of Philippa's most outstanding character is her ability to communicate. When I asked her some questions either academically or in life, she always showed her extreme patience and understanding while listening and is able to explain stuff in a way that's easily understandable, even though I don't speak English as my first language. Therefore, I'm 100% sure Philippa is going to make a great tutor who knows her content well and also knows how to teach it even better :) »
