"I thought you might like to know that my son got an A* in his English Language GCSE (and in his English Literature too). He found the tips you gave him very useful and did lots of practice papers with them very much in mind. Thanks very much for your help - I'm very glad that Owl Tutors gave us your name."

"Amy helped William to gain confidence. She quickly identified the areas where he needed the most work and then targeted them. I think Amy's tuition will benefit Will across all his subjects. She taught him exam techniques which will allow him to fulfill his potential."
