Our daughter has been with Ms. Phillips for nearly seven years. I have never seen another teacher with the insight and enthusiasm that Ms. P exudes. She opens new educational doors with her classes and guides each child toward achieving his or her best. Over these many years, I have watched in amazement her energy and care as she teaches the varied subjects she offers and how much the kids enjoy the learning process. Ms. P is a gem! Thank you for all you do - for the honest and true love of learning you've demonstrated and the power of example that you are. We think that you are the best and feel so very fortunate to have you in our lives!
Ms. Philips has been a wonderful influence on my son throughout his years at VEG. She sets an example that anything is possible and hard work can be fun when its taught in a caring environment. Her endless energy and creativity in the classroom sets the tone for a truly unique learning experience.Every year she continues to set the bar higher for herself and her students. It is a rare gift that she generously shares with anyone who is lucky enough to know her

Julian started with Mrs. Goldfarb when he was just two. This year, he is in the early learner's program for three-year olds and he is absolutely loving classes with Mrs. Goldfarb. We travel 2 hours in one direction just to get there, but it's more than worth it! He is learning, understanding, and retaining at an advanced level. Julian is thriving and I have learned so much about how to teach Julian at home. VEG is a truly unique, enriching, foundational program. We just wish is was closer to home!
My daughter has been attending VEG for the last few years. Mrs. Phillips is an extremely creative, enthusiatic teacher who makes learning fun! My daughter looks forward to each class and comes home excited to share new ideas and experiences. Her vocabulary and confidence in her writing has blossomed and is reflected in her academics. I highly recommend this program!
Finding this enrichment program for my daughter was the best thing for her education so far. She joined the program last year in September and she enjoys coming to VEG every week...always looking forward for the next class. The Curriculum, the way very advanced information is presented to them is just amazing. It's also great to know her surrounded by children who enjoy learning as much as she does.
Contrary to what other students might think, I'm Ms. P's biggest fan. Personally, I think that the absolutely wonderful, wholly unorthodox and original approach she takes towards teaching academically advanced students more than justifies this sort of dispute. To put it simply: she's worth fighting over. I think Ms. P.'s lifelong philosophy is "thinking outside the box", a belief she spreads wherever she goes. She's always looking for new ways to impact others. Ms. Phillips never reaches the bottom of her well of ideas. Her teaching methods are, quite frankly, genius, and she is individuality's biggest fan. Many of us consider her the finest educator we've ever encountered. One struggles to define Ms. P., but the best word to sum up her multifaceted personality is: awesome.
One of the things in my life that I am most grateful for is finding Tobi Philips and her school. From day one I knew it was a perfect fit. My son Liam, left her first class beaming with happiness and excitement as he still does to this day, a year later. He will give up anything not to miss one of her classes. As a mother this is such a gratifying and reassuring feeling. She has such a unique and engaging style of teaching that ignites a child's mind with a burning love for learning that you can't extinguish. Something so simple as teaching her students Latin prefixes, suffixes and root words will stay with them forever giving them a broader vocabulary and comprehension of languages. She is a phenomenal teacher and extremely caring individual who cares for each and every child knowing their strengths and weakness' in order for them to continue to grow to their greatest potential. Her energy and creativity is endless. I feel she is making a profound impact in my child's future academic success and that to me is priceless!
When my children were little, one of the things they regarded with the utmost respect and appreciation, was going to the classes at VEG. They couldn't express with sufficient appreciation, how much they thought of their teacher, Ms P. Every class was an opportunity for exploration, understanding, and investigation. Each of these young people has grown into a young adult whose ability to explore the world at large has been tremendously enhanced by their experience in VEG. Incredibly beautiful scores on standardized test, excellent school reports, terrific understanding of what is required academically - each can lay claim to all. The years in which my children attended VEG were phenomenally busy, and extraordinarily rewarding. I can't adequately describe what a privilege they, and we, considered VEG in our lives! See whether your children, too, can benefit from this incredible program!
Village East Gifted has greatly enriched my daughter's life. Tobi Phillips' exceptional program sparks a love of learning in a relaxing and calm environment. The sophisticated and well-rounded curriculum inspires the children to learn to their highest potential. My daughter adores Ms. Phillips and her classmates. I just learned today that my daughter scored at a 12.9 (college!) reading level. Thank you for all of your hard work this year. She is very proud of the progress she has made with you this year."She is thrilled to be surrounded by other highly gifted children who encourage and support one another. I highly recommend this program.
