Recent testimonials:

"I initially contacted Owl Turtors in a panic as my daughter was due to take the 13+ common entrance exam in 7 weeks and was feeling unprepared and was lacking in confidence. Owl put us in touch with Sobia for online tutoring sessions. As my daughter had never participated in online tutoring she was a little apprehensive about how this would work however she needn’t have worried because within 15 minutes of meeting Sobia she felt totally at ease with her. Sobia quickly identified my daughters strengths and also the areas that she needed to work on. She taught her some excellent exam techniques and also built up her confidence. The quality of tutoring that Sobia delivers is of such a high standard and it was a pleasure to observe how she would guide the child to discover the answer themselves instead of just providing them with the answer. Sobia is very personable, patient and friendly and although she is a master in her field she tutors with such a calm, kind and fun manner my daughter really did not want the sessions to end. I felt that every minute of the session was spent learning; there was never any time wasted and if I ever needed to talk to Sobia she would ensure this was done before the session started or after it had ended.

My daughter went on to pass both of her exams and has so far received 1 offer and we have our fingers crossed for the 2nd.

I would not hesitate to utilise Sobia again in future."
