What parents say about us

"We were recommended to Wiseowls by a friend. Our son started working with Tehseen and the team last year and it was clear from the start that they were very experienced in developing, coaching and supporting children who want to take their 11+ exam.
The team were very approachable and friendly and the way they adapted to the pandemic and to virtual learning helped my son immensely through a very difficult period, especially with no school at the time.
The pre-tests, workshops and intense revision classes a few months before the actual test were extremely beneficial and helped him become familiar with a testing environment, albeit a virtual one! I would highly recommend the investment in these additional sessions.
We’ve seen our son’s confidence grow whilst working with Wiseowls, which has had a positive knock-on effect with his schoolwork as well.
Having received his results yesterday, we couldn’t be prouder of his achievement and we’d like to thank Tehseen and the team for all the support they offered Noah throughout this last 12 months to achieve his goal." -

"My son and I would highly recommend Wiseowls Learning for 11+ tuition. Tehseen is extremely approachable, friendly and caring towards her students as well as encouraging them every step of the way. My son has grown in confidence over this past year thanks to the Wiseowls team.
The town centre location was ideal for us but then when lockdown happened and classes had to move online this was done with little disruption to the schedule and I'm grateful that Wiseowls managed to keep the momentum of learning going in what has been a very difficult year. The resources provided are excellent and on the whole my son has enjoyed his weekly lessons as well as the additional sessions over the holidays - the summer sessions were particularly invaluable this year as he had missed so much of actual schooling due to lockdown.
Tehseen always responds promptly to queries and has been very supportive. Fingers crossed my son gets the result he deserves after all this hard work!" -

"All I can say is AMAZING! We would rate them 10 stars if we could. My son passed his 11 plus with Wise Owls Learning last year and my daughter has just passed her 11 plus this time around with the help from Wise Owls. I cannot express my gratitude enough.

 

The team at Wiseowls are above the rest in terms of treating the children as individuals (not numbers) and nurturing them. The results speak for themselves. My children miss the Wise Owls team and we are all forever grateful to them for the wonderful teaching they have done." - Rebecca Hodgson

"I would highly recomend Tehseen at Wiseowls Learning. She has been fantastic with tutoring Olivia for her 11+, giving her the much needed confidence and support she needed, and teaching her all the aspects required for her test.

 

Thank you" - Olivia Dobson

"Wiseowls have a tried and tested approach to develop the core skills and techniques children require to pass the 11+ exam. The team are friendly and approachable and have made a great impact on my daughters learning journey as well as her confidence. Tehseen has a great understanding around the content of the 11+ exams and ensures all sessions address this well.

The mock exams and intensive revision further add to the experience and enable the children to become comfortable with a formal testing environment. My daughter has also picked up core study skills which extend beyond the 11+ and include things such as taking effective notes, planning revision and keeping to task timings.

Overall I am very pleased with the service and would highly recommend to anyone- a huge thanks to the wiseowls team!" - Nadia Nasir

"A very professional yet homely service provided. I was very comfortable sending my child there and trusting Wiseowls Learning with enhancing her academic skills. I believe Wiseowls delivers above and beyond expectations and cater for pupils and parents alike especially in the run up to exams. Very approachable and a service of which they should be proud of.

A great investment for any child's future." - Nasir Qureshi

"I highly recommend wiseowls to those thinking about entering their child for the 11+. My son joined very late and the team went out of their way to try and help him catch up as much as possible with the other children. Lots of helpful advice was given as to how to support him at home as well. I also recommend the pretest as this was a very authentic setting for the children and they then know exactly what to expect. The results and feedback were very useful.

Thank you Tehseen and team" - Charlotte Bartley

"My daughter got a place at her first choice grammar school and I highly believe this was largely down to the intensive revision sessions and mock tests she attended at Wise Owls. These sessions & exam settings fully prepared her and she gained that extra confidence she needed. The tutors are extremely knowledgeable with all aspects of the 11 plus and support you immensely.

Highly recommend!"- Ailish Campbell

"When Tehseen and her team took on my son from July to the 11 plus exam I thought it was impossible for him to be prepared in time for the exam, as his peers had started tuition 2 years prior. The support and effort that was put in to preparing him was incredible, the confidence and knowledge my son showed after every session was outstanding. The summer school was also superb and the after school sessions leading up to the exam were on point for the final touches. My son passed the exam comfortably and received his first choice of North Halifax Grammer School. I applaud tehseen and her team in their professionalism and end result. Thank you, I will be forever grateful to you for changing my sons life forever" - Zeb

"I would highly reccommend Wiseowls Learning to everyone I know... My son attended Wiseowls Learning and had an absolutely fantastic experience and learned so much which has helped him to be prepared for his 11 plus exam. Tehseen is passionate and committed to the children's teaching and learning experience and their welfare. Her and her team are efficient and hardworking and would go the extra mile for your child to feel confident in their learning experience. This organisation is a valuable asset to anyone who will use them for their child." - Shagufta

"I am glad that I chose Wiseowls learning to provide tuition to my child to prepare her for her 11+ exams. I have noticed exceptional improvement in my child’s learning and they have boosted her confidence that she fearlessly tackles all kind of questions in Maths Verbal reasoning and English. My daughter has attended the summer school and continues to go to booster sessions that take place daily. She looks forward to her tuition lessons and always returns home happy and shares her positive experience with me. The tutors are amazing and are really working hard to help my child succeed. I definitely recommend Wiseowls learning." - Sobia J
