Rebekah grew up in Switzerland and so has been exposed to multilingualism from an early age; as a child, she spoke English at home, French at school, and started learning German at the age of seven. She is passionate about languages and convinced anyone can pick them up—with just a little time and commitment!
Rebekah went on to study French and German at Southampton University where she achieved a First.
After graduating from secondary school in Germany, Maggie attended classes at the University of Stuttgart where she studied English, French and Politics. She graduated with the first state exam (equivalent of a bachelor’s degree of honours, 2:1) in English and Politics.
"Due to the pandemic year, UK boarding school exams were delayed and in lieu of a spring exam, a September date was ascribed in the middle of the summer holidays so it was a bit of a scramble. As such, and as we reside in Switzerland, I reached out to Owl Tutors UK and the team was incredibly responsive and swift, and sourced my son a math tutor so he had three intensive weeks of online tutoring with Phil. Phil is an incredibly talented teacher and uses whiteboard techniques to cover math problem solving and techniques so all notions were clear to my son. Moreover, he is full of energy and great ideas and my son loved meeting him for bi-weekly lessons. He was also incredibly flexible and amenable to my son’s school schedule as they met during the week and over the weekend. Phil would assign prep homework so my son was able to carry on learning autonomously and Phil would then review the work prior to the lessons.
Phil is a rare gem of a teacher as he holds the superb qualities of breaking down complicated math concepts into digestible bites. He is patient, kind, and encouraging. He positively reinforces a pupil under immense pressure as these entry-exams are not for the faint-hearted and my son is still a pre-teen so a fairly young age to work under such duress. Moreover, my son was not familiar with the British system as he is schooled in the French National Curriculum so Phil made the test preparation very enjoyable. My son still asks whether he can continue learning math with Phil, a testament to how much he enjoyed his time with math tutoring."
