Simon was actually very good and our son found him very helpful and liked him. He was organised and good at getting in contact/punctual/making arrangements etc. - I hope that is helpful!

We had recently relocated to the UK and wanted our daughter to prepare for entrance tests to a few independent schools of our choice. She had barely a week to prepare for the tests - Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. Since each of the schools had different type of tests and as parents we were clueless of the UK educational system, we decided to take help from Owl Tutors. We accepted Jay's proposal and we are very happy to say that our daughter was offered in 2 of the 3 schools so far she had tested with and we are awaiting the results of the 3rd one.

Jay spent 2 hrs each day (total of 10 hrs) prepping our daughter on different topics, and gave her many question papers to work offline. They built a great working rhythm in these few days and our daughter really looked forward to these sessions. Additionally Jay also prepared her for interviews with the School Heads and most importantly gave her the confidence that she can ace the tests. Jay was very flexible with his hours as we had to reschedule a few lessons when our daughter fell ill.

I would recommend Jay any day to anyone who is looking for a good tutor.

I am happy I came across Owl Tutors that helped my daughter get admission to the school of our choice. Mike from Owl Tutors is also constantly in touch to check on the progress.

Andrew is a very approachable tutor and has a very structured and organized approach to his teaching. He has in depth knowledge of his subject and I’m very pleased you put him our way.

In three short weeks of working with Rachel over Zoom my 3-and-a-half-year-old daughter grew in confidence and learned to love rhyming and phonics. She passed the 4+ at our preferred school and we're over the moon! Holding a little one’s attention over Zoom is not an easy feat but Rachel was a real professional- she put in a lot of effort before each session to make sure I had printed alternatives of exercises and gave me feedback after each session. We thoroughly recommend Rachel!

Ally quickly got to the heart of the matter - creative writing - so the bulk of her work was in this area.

Ally took our son from a standing start to a fluent essay writer, providing guidance on types of writing, structure and planning. She was kind flexible and patient when dealing with a some time less than enthusiastic student.

We were delighted when our son was offered a place at MCS which we have taken up. Without Ally this may not have happened.

After we had spoken to a short list of tutors to understand their approach we went with Ally. The opportunity to speak to two or three tutors was very useful.

Ally has helped my son achieve his first choice school during the 11+ process. She was professional, kind and patient with my son at all times even when he was fatigued after a day of distance learning or school. She calmly led him through the rapid changes to the usual 11plus system due to the pandemic and quickly got him up to speed on the ISEB test. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Due to the pandemic year, UK boarding school exams were delayed and in lieu of a spring exam, a September date was ascribed in the middle of the summer holidays so it was a bit of a scramble. As such, and as we reside in Switzerland, I reached out to Owl Tutors UK and the team was incredibly responsive and swift, and sourced my son a math tutor so he had three intensive weeks of online tutoring with Phil. Phil is an incredibly talented teacher and uses whiteboard techniques to cover math problem solving and techniques so all notions were clear to my son. Moreover, he is full of energy and great ideas and my son loved meeting him for bi-weekly lessons. He was also incredibly flexible and amenable to my son’s school schedule as they met during the week and over the weekend. Phil would assign prep homework so my son was able to carry on learning autonomously and Phil would then review the work prior to the lessons.

Phil is a rare gem of a teacher as he holds the superb qualities of breaking down complicated math concepts into digestible bites. He is patient, kind, and encouraging. He positively reinforces a pupil under immense pressure as these entry-exams are not for the faint-hearted and my son is still a pre-teen so a fairly young age to work under such duress. Moreover, my son was not familiar with the British system as he is schooled in the French National Curriculum so Phil made the test preparation very enjoyable. My son still asks whether he can continue learning math with Phil, a testament to how much he enjoyed his time with math tutoring.

Thank you Owl Tutors! My son reached high and applied to two very competitive all-boy UK full boarding schools called Radley College and Harrow School and got into both thanks to your superb tutoring by Phil and Michael!

Due to the pandemic year, UK boarding school exams were delayed and in lieu of a spring exam, a September date was ascribed in the middle of the summer holidays so it was a bit of a scramble. As such, and as we reside in Switzerland, I reached out to Owl Tutors UK and the team was incredibly responsive and swift, and sourced my son a math tutor so he had three intensive weeks of online tutoring with Michael.

As my son is schooled in a bilingual French-British School, the English subject was taught as a second language and my son lacked some key notions, notably in reading comprehension and writing composition as well as vocabulary. Michael reviewed texts with him and forced him to think critically and creatively and my son experienced an a-ha moment and to use his words, "Michael gave me the key which unlocked the necessary door.” My son's ideas flowed and he was able to organise his thoughts and his writing compositions more carefully. Michael would send poems and excerpts from passages for my son to analyse ahead of their online meetings and my son really grasped the general meaning as well as the more subtle nuances, even in old English!

Given that he had limited time to prepare for the big test day, Michael encouraged him and gave him the confidence needed for my son to give his best. Michael lent my son as much time as he needed in those critical three weeks and was a testament to how positive reinforcement and great teaching can inspire a young mind. My son performed phenomenally well on his exams and his online interviews and received two offers to his top two choices, so he is elated. Thank you ever so much, Michael!

Just a quick feedback note - Alanya having helping particularly with maths is really building her confidence. We are both so pleased with the structure, content and approach you are taking with our daughter.

Thank you so much for your lovely note! Our son finds your sessions and support extremely helpful. Your comments around his planning style of really resonated and will help him beyond economics! I am incredibly grateful your help!!

We have been so grateful to Alexander for his patient and consistently professional coaching he has delivered in the past few weeks. Alexander’s enthusiasm and excellent tuition, has really busted our son’s performance and he has helped him to unlock his potential.

Alexander is a very passionate teacher and has assessed our son’s level accurately, putting in place a plan of action that has helped him to increase his confidence in English and improve his writing. This has been achieved in a very short period, just 5 weeks before the exams, that shows the level of commitment and the excellent teaching approach Alexander had applied.

Our son has achieved excellent results in his 13+ entry exams and he has passed to the school of his first choice with flying colours. Few weeks before started with Alexander, this was looking as a very remote prospect.

We are immensely thankful to Alexander and we look forward working with him in the future.

We were recommended to Gary by Owl Tutors as our son was aiming to secure a place at Hampton School. Gary was calm and thorough and our son found his sessions incredibly useful in tackling the more difficult questions that he might come up against, particularly in maths. Our son has successfully attained the place he wanted at Hampton and we are very grateful to Gary for his calm and wise tuition. Highly recommended.

Isabel was an excellent guide for our daughter in her 11+ preparations. More than the whole preparation aspect, what I was really thankful for was she helped our daughter build a strong foundation in the English language which I believe will go a long way, especially in her secondary education. Also, as our daughter was naturally very creative, she was able to channelise that skill by giving it more structure and format. I was just amazed and blown away by some of our daughter's recent creative writing pieces. Isabel's guidance definitely made that difference. She also taught our daughter the art of precision which was handy in her comprehension exercises. Most importantly, she made the whole process fun and engaging and our daughter loved her classes with Isabel. She worked with our daughter for over a year and at the end of this engagement, I can confidently say that our daughter has a strong hold and a genuine love for the language. Our daughter made it to many top schools in London including CLSG and Godolphin & Latymer that we are having a tough time choosing. Overall, we really appreciate her efforts and are thankful to Isabel especially as we are not native English speakers.

Josh was incredibly helpful in building our son’s confidence ahead of his 7+ assessments. This was in 2020 and Josh helped build online sessions from 30 minutes up to one hour. We received offers from all 4 schools we applied for and definitely think that Josh’s tutoring contributed to this.

Rachel worked with my son ahead of his 7+ exams. She has a wonderful way of making learning enjoyable for young children, successfully guiding them through complicated concepts in bite-size chunks. Her teaching approach involves sharing memorable terms which my son still references in his school work. She is well versed in online tutoring and all lessons were conducted this way, very successfully. She also offered me guidance on additional learning resources I could reference to support my son’s learning and was always very responsive to ad-hoc questions.

Gary has been a fantastic maths tutor for my nine year old son. He has a lovely manner and really helped my son understand some tricky maths concepts, stretching his learning where possible. Very grateful for all the work Gary has done with him and would recommend him unreservedly!

Jacqueline helped us through the unknown changes to assessments due to the lockdown / pandemic. She worked with our child to prepare them for the online assessments and interviews. Specifically, she advised with regards to book choices, questions and worked on development areas. We were delighted to receive two offers at 7+.

Rachel was fantastic in building a strong rapport with our slightly quiet boy from the get go. Her primary focus with our son was to help him improve his creative writing skills for his 7+ assessments and she very patiently helped him with several frameworks and toolkits that really helped him structure his already very imaginative mind. We could certainly see a stark difference in how his stories were structured once he started with Rachel whilst completing them in the given timeframe - in fact one of the top school’s feedback was that his story writing was most impressive compared to his peers (and I would attribute that to Rachel’s guidance and help).

She was also quite willing and flexible to give us further guidance on what we needed to do home to complement her sessions, and on various other queries about which schools to apply, their process, where our son fit in his peer group and what would be most suited to his personality.

Finally, she ran a mock test which really helped my son build further confidence for the assessments and the interviews that would follow. Thank you Rachel!
