I have successfully taught over 40 students for Osborne Cawkwell over the past five years. Since I have over 40 years of A-Level History and Politics teaching experience, I have also been an examiner in both subjects. Additionally, I have taught in leading state, independent and 6th Form colleges. I concentrate on exam technique, using previous exam papers of the relevant syllabuses and also help students with their coursework. I have fifteen years experience of tutoring for the Oxford History Aptitude Test (HAT). Furthermore almost all applicants to Oxford have proceeded to interview at Oxford on the basis of their result in that test. I have then given them interview practice and most have been given Oxford places as a result.
“Osborne Cawkwell stepped into the breach magnificently…”
Last year, we faced a bleak prospect when my daughter finished school with no higher qualifications due to illness. Osborne Cawkwell stepped into the breach magnificently, and provided tutors who both capable and willing to teach Pre-U’s in her chosen subjects: English, Philosophy and Mathematics. Three super-intelligent, highly qualified young people stepped into our lives and completely turned the situation around. She is now happily ensconced in the university of her choice and we undoubtedly owe this to the tutoring and morale boost that she received from Osborne Cawkwell.
“The quality and charm of the tutors was the best we could possibly have hoped for”
Our experiences with Osborne Cawkwell have been seriously impressive on all levels. The quality and charm of the tutors was the best we could possibly have hoped for. The standard of teaching was matched by the care and understanding, by every single tutor, towards our daughter’s mental illness. Rather than dreading the 2-hour sessions, our daughter positively looked forward to seeing the tutors. The Osborne Cawkwell experience could not have been better. We have already recommended them to many of our friends. They are fantastic!
“Our son has an excellent tutor… and… a mentor and friend.”
We were recommended Osborne Cawkwell for home tuition when our son was unable to attend regular school but needed to study for GCSEs. Although we are still relatively early in the process, the agency has been flexible, thorough and efficient about meeting our needs. Our son has an excellent tutor who is giving him more than mere academic instruction and is gradually becoming a mentor and friend. The principal of the agency is very caring and involved to the extent that she came to a lesson specifically to meet our son, something she certainly didn’t need to do.
“We strongly recommend their services.”
We have been regular users of OC for 6 years for our 4 children and have found that the quality of tutors has been uniformly high. One child needed home education, following illness, and we found in that situation the tutors and the team at OC were both effective and sensitive to a difficult situation. We strongly recommend their services.
