"I was unsure how productive online tutoring would help my daughter, as she is very capable but her main issue is confidence, Sobia's kind and positive approach as well as an outstanding knowledge of maths, science and english has helped my daughter immensely. Sobia also held my daughters interest which after spending all day online learning could have been a challenge. My daughters knowledge has increased and her confidence soared. Sobia was very accommodating of our families busy schedule and often change things around to help us. In a nutshell we are very happy and couldn't have asked for more and feel every penny worth spending."

"Sobia is an excellent tutor. I got her in very last minute but my son improved a lot, and I strongly recommend her for anyone, her teaching methods are very good and communicate with me as a parent excellent. She was able to find out about my son weak area in few lessons. I wish her every success. But regret I didn’t know about her from before."
