Throughout academic study, Tim has continually set himself high expectations: he achieved nine A* grades at GCSE and performed well enough in the International Baccalaureate to meet his offer to study English Literature at the University of Exeter. He fully applied himself at degree level, enjoying the diverse and challenging modules (including a year in Canada where he focused on North American literature), and he was very pleased to graduate with First-Class Honours.

"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. "
