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.

Gary was excellent from the get go. He is professional and thorough and my son really benefitted from his one to one hour sessions with him going through the more complex questions in detail. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Emily has been tutor to our two primary school-aged children for almost 3 months now, as they sit entrance exams for prep school.

We selected Emily after setting up trial lessons with several tutors, and found her to be the most naturally engaging as an educator and communicator, both with her pupils and with us as parents.

Our children see Emily weekly and describe her as very warm and friendly. They enjoy her lessons as she keeps their attention by mixing things up and using different approaches.

In terms of entrance exams, Emily is not only covering the written paper elements including sample papers and homework at stages, to assess their progress, but she also provides interview practice. Our daughter had a very good mock interview recently, the evening before her actual first one, and it was particularly useful since with COVID, the real interview was also via video. Emily covers all aspects of the interview including body language and behaviour as well as content. This was incredibly useful.

As a parent of young children, Emily- both as a teacher and as a parent herself- has provided invaluable tips regarding the approach to learning. She explains things very well, is extremely patient but also knows when to be firm if needed.

We would highly recommend her.

Our 13 year old was greatly helped by having maths sessions with Isabelle. She was clear, consistent and patient, making sure he understood each task before moving on and always revising the work covered at the previous session at the start of each new lesson.

Sobia has been amazing and provided a friendly and constructive approach to my daughter's tutoring. With her help and advice, my daughter was able to get accepted into her school of choice. We worked mostly on Biology and Chemistry, working on how to answer entrance exam style questions and how to not miss out on key marks. Sobia helped my daughter work through practice papers and she found the lessons enjoyable and useful. Sobia also provided tips for English questions and resources to use. She has been very professional and a pleasure to work with, we are very happy. No doubt in recommending her.

Alan has been a great help and a pleasure to work with. He set regular homework after each lesson and was good at recognizing my daughter's weaknesses and gaps in knowledge. He was very professional and easy to contact. My daughter found the lessons enjoyable and useful. The use of OneNote was great, she could go back and see all the notes and practice papers in one place and Alan provided diverse resources. She was able to get accepted into her school of choice and now also has a better foundation in Mathematics. We are very happy with Alan and would definitely recommend him to others.

Finnian was a great tutor for our son. They quickly built a strong rapport and Finnian provided great support in unlocking new approaches to problem solving. Finnian was also terrific at encouraging our son and it was clear he instilled a deeper sense of confidence for the learning road ahead.

Josh was absolutely instrumental in guiding (my child) in how best to develop her English and Math skills. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and seamlessly handled the switch to virtual teaching this past Spring. We asked Josh to not teach (my child) specifically for the exam, but to help her develop foundational skills over this past year, and he managed to make the learning fun and engaging for (my child).

We would have no hesitation in recommending Josh to other families.

Thank you, Mike, for all your help and support during the past year. We didn’t know what it would be like working with Owl Tutors a year ago, but you have made it a very supportive experience. As we head into the Christmas holidays, I wish you and the team at Owl Tutors a relaxing close to a most exceptional year!

Sobia was great to deal with from a parent point of view. More importantly, my son admitted that his lesson with Sobia was helpful preparation for his exam and enjoyable!

Charlotte has been a revelation for our daughter and her French studies. Prior to starting tutoring our daughter was trying hard but struggling. Since starting with Charlotte she has progressed steadily and consistently. Now she will happily answer questions in class and is scoring very well in assessments. Charlotte has been patient, encouraging and able to work with our daughter’s learning needs, dyslexia and dyspraxia, and helped her grow in confidence week after week.

(Student) was accepted into Ardingly but unfortunately not Brighton. We believe the exams went well and that she did not present the picture they were looking for at interview stage.

Jay proved to be an outstanding Maths tutor for our daughter - he prepared her within the space of three short months for challenging school entrance exams. From the very first lesson he identified her strengths and weaknesses and she was quickly on to learning new topics which Jay knew would be potentially covered in the entrance exams Scarlett was sitting.

Jay is encouraging, knowledgeable, full of tips and alternative ways of addressing questions. He is firm on the basics and effusive and very genuine in his praise. Our daughter went from believing she was struggling in Maths to being very confident and actually finding it is one of her strongest subjects.

She looked forwards to every session, essentially working through past papers at several levels and targeting areas of difficulty, she found them fun and bounced out of them full of news on what she had learned and how intriguing the topic was.

I would without hesitation work with Jay again and highly recommend him, I am only sorry that he is not a teacher at our daughters school !!

Kind Regards

As a result of a late decision to return to the UK from abroad we enlisted the support of Michael to support our daughter in preparing for 13+ style exams in English in order to gain entry to our choice schools. As a result of having been in the international education system for the past five years her ability to respond to more advanced English Comprehension questions was lacking and this was identified very early into our sessions. Michael was incredibly supportive particularly at introducing her to the concept of analyzing a piece of literature in order to interpret the writers intentions as well as identifying literary devices through quotes which are key parts of any English Exam.

Michael was always encouraging and kind yet insistent when it came to ensuring she had truly understood the question and provided an appropriate response to merit the number of marks available. He set relevant homework and past paper practice at each session and always followed up on this in the following session to ensure continuity of effort.

We as parents found him very professional and focused as well as being a pleasure to deal with.

I only have positive things to say about this, my first experience of engaging tutors for our children. The choice of tutors excellent, billing clear, monthly reports valuable. Should we need tutoring in the future for our other children we know where to come!
