"We put our son for St. Paul’s 8+ entrance exam at the last min of registration, basically left us three months till the actual exam. As we have no any previous knowledge or experience for these type of highly competitive exam and interview to the elite school. We approached Owl Tutors for some advice and they recommend Gary. Gary was absolutely fantastic! Not only he is so good with teaching and our son loved him very much, but also nothing is too much trouble for him, he always there ready to help, answer our all kinds of questions, give advices, so supportive and helpful! At the end our son overall did well on the exam and successfully gained a treasured place at this top school! We can’t thank Gary and Owl Tutors enough, they are really fantastic!"
