"We were really happy to have Sobia tutoring Zayn over the past few months. She is fun, patient and encouraging and my son has enjoyed his lessons with her.
She explains difficult concepts clearly and is excellent at identifying both the strengths and weaknesses of the student. Her feedback has been invaluable in working to fill in the gaps as well as to challenge and stretch Zayn and I would recommend her highly to any parent looking for a tutor for their children."
