Featured Testimonial:

I have recently just passed my Numeracy Skills test after failing my first one and having my confidence knocked. After getting in touch with Owl tutors I attended their workshop and had 1:1 tutor sessions. I was incredibly pleased with all aspects of the workshop and my tutor. They were incredibly patient and listened to what I really needed to focus on. Would highly recommend to anyone needing some extra help with their Maths. Thank you again. Katie Weighell on the 3rd of November 2013
