Recent testimonials

In the first year of GCSEs my daughter struggled with some of the sciences, chemistry in particular. She started lessons with Isabelle at Owl Tutors a year before the final GCSE exams as we didn’t want any last minute panic. I liked the fact that Isabelle was not only highly qualified in her subject but also had training in education. She also did some biology lessons with my daughter for some of the trickier subjects. Because of the pandemic all tutoring had to be done online. It quickly became clear that Isabelle has all the required qualities to make an excellent tutor. Every lesson topic is planned and agreed in advance. She is well organised and punctual. Even more importantly, she is extremely patient, calm and went over past material as often as necessary without making my daughter feel awkward in any way.

Isabelle’s steady and kind approach proved invaluable in what has been a tough year for students. Her monthly progress summary is detailed and comprehensive.

We could not recommend Isabelle more highly and are very grateful for her hard work and dedication.
