From the outset Isobel hit the mark. Utterly unflappable, systematic, well paced and yet flexible and warm. Isobel has a deft hand with both the reluctant student and the anxious parent. She knows how and when to make class fun. And she isn’t afraid to highlight disappointing work when her pupils fail to try their best. She was always transparent and a strong communicator.
As a working parent I found Isobel a godsend. She went above and beyond to work around our commitments and enable tutoring when I wasn’t available. I always felt we were getting value for money, with someone who’s priority was equipping our son for success, rather than earning a salary. Isobel’s style is relaxed, nurturing and effective. She quickly deciphers her pupils and taps into what makes them tick, whilst building skills and confidence, particularly where a child is weakest.
Over the course of the early weeks Isobel recommended several schools that she thought would appeal to our son and our values. She hit the nail on the head with one of her recommendations becoming our first choice. With Isobel’s support and dedication our son achieved his goal and had the luxury of turning down a number of other offers. We will definitely bring repeat business with our second child when his turn comes.
“We were really struggling to get to grips with the amount of schools out there. In fact, we really didn’t know WHICH schools where out there! IWschoolingconsultants to the rescue!”
Half way through the first term of a school, we decided we really wanted to send our daughter to an independent school. We really had no idea which schools where out there and how one would even start approaching them.
Isobel came to the rescue! Armed with information based on some simple questions she had put to us before our first meeting, she talked us through the list of schools that would best meet our needs.
During our meeting, she then further worked out what kind of people we were and pointed us to schools which would not only suit our daughter but would fit in with our lives and world views.
Isobel also helped us with crucial tips on how to approach the schools.
All of this was done with professionalism, and humour which really made a huge difference.
We ended up with a wish list, and after contacting the schools and meeting them, we made our choice and were offered a place in the school we were hoping for.
We are absolutely delighted, and look forward to the start of the new term with our daughter in the perfect environment for her and us.
I could not recommend IWschoolingconsultants highly enough.
I first encountered Isobel when I attended her 11+ preparation course for parents. I was so impressed that I booked my son onto her summer holiday tutoring course and I cannot recommend her, and the courses, highly enough. My 10 year old son is the most reluctant student you will find and when I finally told him (the night before) that I had signed him up for a week of intensive English training he thought his world had ended! Over the week he went from reluctant student to one who couldn’t wait to go and, each day when I collected him, he was eager to show me what he had done during that day’s session and was proud of his work. Him enjoying the course was a huge relief but more importantly we have noticed a big improvement from him in terms of how he approaches his work, the effort he puts in and, thankfully, there has been an improvement in the marks he is getting. When I mentioned to him that he would be doing some more sessions with Isobel over the October half term there was none of the usual reluctance we get when we mention the dreaded study word and he’s excited to go back, this time taking some friends with him who signed up following my, and his, recommendation.

Isobel started looking after our two girls eight years ago and has remained a big part of their lives. Isobel has a wealth of experience working with children coupled with a natural ability to engage and relate to them and gain their confidence and friendship.
She has been a great support to both my girls from nursery right through to senior school encouraging them and helping them along the way.
