"We hired Owl Tutors to help our American daughter get up to speed on some UK Maths and English questions prior to us relocating from California to London. We were assigned Kelly, and she was fantastic. Our daughter was a little nervous in the beginning and Kelly was calm, friendly and patient, and our daughter warmed to her in no time.
After a couple of months our daughter took her UK entrance exam with confidence, and passed.
We highly recommend Owl Tutors and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kelly. We hope to use her ourselves again in the future.
