We had a handful of sessions with Josh but they were very helpful with good guidance and teaching. Thanks Josh!

Finn helped prepare my son for secondary school interviews. The outcome was excellent! Finn took the time to listen to our aims in advance, he discussed and prepared him for a wide array of questions and lifted his confidence. He also provided constructive feedback that we were able to address prior to the interviews. The interviews went really well and I am pleased to say that he got offered a place! Finn was professional and high-quality – I would highly recommend him for interview prep.

Our son has just completed his final lesson with Josephine before his 13+ entrance exams. He has been having weekly online lessons since August and has thoroughly enjoyed them. Jo has stretched his brain and encouraged him to view texts differently, often using art as a way to encourage him to verbally analyse things. This has helped him to approach critical thinking more confidently, especially when analysing poetry which can be daunting. Jo has given our son much more confidence with his comprehension as well as his essay writing, encouraging him to use his own brain rather than spoon feeding him information. This will stand him in very good stead, not just for the upcoming exams, but also for his future learning. Jo’s enthusiasm for English is infectious.

Charlotte is organised and clear and my daughter has found her to be thorough and extremely helpful both in cementing knowledge and assisting her with more difficult areas. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Rachel has worked wonders with our summer-born, state school DD to secure a place in some of the most competitive schools in London!

She built a wonderful relationship with DD almost instantly and somehow turned the demanding tasks of 7+ into fun activities for her. This made the past 6 months as enjoyable as possible for DD.

The mock exam she organized was very useful for parents to understand areas for further improvement, as well as DD’s time management, highly recommended!

Feedback from our daugher is very good, she really feels like it is helping her. Nicola prepares well for the sessions with worksheets ready before hand that they work through.

Amy is excellent. She somehow has inspired my son in just a couple of sessions and he feels confident and likes writing stories. I wished I had found her earlier.

Our daughter has quickly built a good relationship with Claire and is gaining confidence. Claire is reinforcing parts of the syllabus that she finds difficult and things are going well. Claire is reassuring and good on a one-to one.

Our daughter enjoyed her lessons with Ria the last few weeks. She had her final lesson with her on Wednesday. Ria was great in teaching her in the areas she struggled with and set her appropriate homework. I would highly recommend Ria.

Sarah is a wonderful person and was very supportive through our journey. She really got to understand the children and used methods individual to each child’s strengths and weaknesses. I would definitely recommend her and use her again. I wish her all the best in the future.

She was amazing, very prompt and our son enjoyed his sessions with her, she was throughout a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would be happy to be a referral for the program. Oliver was accepted into the three schools we applied to and was offered 2 sports scholarships.

It went well with Jacqueline! I think in person would have worked better but it was a strange year and that is not down to Jacqueline at all, we think she is absolutely brilliant. Our son was offered places at 2/3 of the schools he sat for.

Ally was a brilliant tutor for our 10 year-old son - despite the limited time, she prepared him beautifully for the 10+ examination and although he did not get an offer for an advance place, she has really improved his (and our) confidence in the whole process. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a patient, thoughtful tutor who is able to tailor each session to the specific needs of the child, and who is able to engage with and build a strong relationship with her pupils.

I simply cannot recommend Josephine highly enough! We started working with Josephine in Dec for a series of sessions to bring my son up to speed on 13+ exam and to plug some gaps in his knowledge due to school absence.

Josephine immediately gauged my son's ability and needs, and it was clear that she was effective from the very first session. She built a very good relationship with my son from the first session - and he has really enjoyed working with Josephine as she certainly stretches him, but is also extremely supportive, providing lots of praise and encouragement.

My son and I have both felt that Josephine is exceptional - and I have know doubt that we are working with an outstanding educational professional.
Our need has been to get up to speed on 13+ and plug some learning gaps in a relatively short amount of time - Josephine has understood this and set the pace accordingly. My son has come on leaps and bounds, developing new skills and ways of thinking - he is able to tackle English text analysis questions with a new level of confidence. He also enjoys the discussion.

As a parent the communication has been excellent, Josephine uses Whatsapp to communicate with student and parent at the same time, zooms links are sent through early, any relevant work is sent in advance - not a minute is wasted.

As said Josephine is an outstanding English tutor, who has had a hugely positive impact on my son in a period of only 6 weeks. It has been a very great pleasure working with her - and my son is also really please. She is brilliant.

Feedback for Owl Tutors:

I have been thrilled with Owl tutors who quickly understood my need to find 2 tutors to support my son across Science, Maths and English to boost his ability and confidence prior to 13+ tests. Wow did Owl Tutors deliver! I was very quickly offered a hand picked range of tutors to meet my son's need - and it was clear they were all very accomplished. I chose 2 tutors and could not be more happy with the fit and how effective they have been with my son. Having had no previous exposure to 13+ type papers - they helped him get orientated with the kinds of questions, they have plugged knowledge gaps and worked intensively with him to get him confident and up to speed. He has frankly enjoyed the sessions - and it hasn't felt like a slog in any way (which it so easily could have without such outstanding tutors). He has really enjoyed working with both tutors, relishing the challenge and the discussion - I can see him enjoying the very real feeling that he is improving after each session. I contacted Owl Tutors on a Thursday end Nov. My son had his first lessons early the following week. Now 6 weeks later my son is in a much improved place across Maths English and Science - and he has enjoyed the learning experience with our two marvellous tutors. I have absolutely felt that we are in the hands of extremely professional learning specialists. I am delighted with my experience of Owl Tutors and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Sobia is an excellent tutor. I got her in very last minute but my son improved a lot, and I strongly recommend her for anyone, her teaching methods are very good and communicate with me as a parent excellent. She was able to find out about my son weak area in few lessons. I wish her every success. But regret I didn’t know about her from before.

Alanya is quite knowledgeable and was helpful in teaching our daughter during the preparation for her 11+ exams. We are very happy with our daughter’s progress.

Sobia came to help our son with his 13+ assessments just after the summer. She was able to make what turned out to be a very accurate assessment of our son's calibre and pinpointed specifics on those bits that needed to be developed. Sobia understands the child's personality and works with him to get the best out of him. She is calm, has a mildly cajoling manner and yet can be very subtly firm when it demands (which was needed for our son can get distracted very easily)!

He passed his ISEB, was called for interview to all of them and we then engaged her for a handful of sessions on creative writing and interview techniques. For a child who wasn't keen on essays, the very clear yet few tactics on obvious areas to improve on helped tremendously to enable our son to clear Eton! We cant thank her enough and will happily recommend to whoever it is needed.

We entrusted Efe with helping our nine year old son build up confidence In creative writing. We have been really impressed with quality of the supports brought to work on every session. (These) varied in themes, types and targeted to our child year level and interest. It really felt like he knew exactly what to do and our son has really progressed as a result.
