We have had the great pleasure of knowing Isobel as teacher at our daughter’s primary school, as private tutor to our daughter and now as senior school educational consultant. In each of these capacities, Isobel has been able to provide experienced and thoughtful support both to our daughter and to us as a family.
As tutor, Isobel has gone well beyond helping our child consolidate key areas of learning. She has also worked to build her self-confidence in all academic areas. Following just one term of regular tutoring, we could see our daughter’s approach to her school life become increasingly enthusiastic, and her academic results soared. We look forward to continuing with Isobel, whose encouragement and teaching talent have been of such benefit to our child.
As educational consultant, Isobel has brought the very same thoughtful insight to helping us navigate the complex route to senior school. Isobel’s deep understanding of our child’s personality and learning style as well as her understanding of us as a family has kept us focused on finding a school that will be the right fit for our child, a place where we know she will thrive.
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.
“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.

We contacted IWSC when my daughter was deeply unhappy at her secondary school. Isobel, along with her team, were fantastic. Her eagerness to empathize was so reassuring. She was very understanding and dedicated to identifying with the bigger picture. She was completely honest about what was realistic and where we stood. Being based in Zambia and having Isobel there with her kindness, fantastic knowledge and advice when no one else was being very helpful was such a support. Isobel also provided regular tutoring to keep my daughters focus academically in the short time it took to find the right school. She is now in her new boarding school and everyone is more understanding of her feelings and needs but best of all she is happy. Thank you Isobel, you have made such an enormous difference.
