I am a highly experienced 13+ Geography teacher (PGCE, Institute of Education) and tutor (over 60 clients) who has taught in both England and New Zealand. Currently I reside in Mozambique and subsequently offer Skype tuition to students of a range of abilities. In addition my school experience includes leading a Geography department at a top London state school, being head of year in a top Auckland grammar school and most recently teaching in an academic girls independent school.
Finally, I have extensive experience tutoring students for Common Entrance and scholarship, including for Eton College.
You guys have been fantastic over the years; thank you for getting me the perfect matches with clients. I really enjoyed the tutees I’ve had since the beginning of the academic year and am looking forward to carry on tutoring through you.

“A combination of warm professionalism and unfailing integrity”
I have worked for Osborne Cawkwell as a tutor for the last 11 years and in that time they have happily won my loyalty and commitment with a combination of warm professionalism and unfailing integrity. Throughout the years, they have presciently picked the most suitable clients for my skill set and matched me with those families that have most benefitted from what I could offer. Some tutors work for many agencies. I don’t need to, because I work for the best.

“Friendly professionalism and efficiency”
I joined OC in 2007 after having worked for a number of different agencies with whom I was dissatisfied. I was quickly won over by the friendly professionalism and efficiency of Lucy and her team, who have worked tirelessly to provide a broad range of interesting tutoring opportunities for me over the years. Since then, the thought of working through a different agency hasn’t crossed my mind.
Tom – Science tutor
Osborne Cawkwell are the only agency that I work with; the commitment they have to finding and care they take in briefing the right tutor inspire a level of trust in the tutor and client alike that makes for productive and worthwhile lessons.

“Other agencies pale in comparison.”
I’ve worked for a few different tutoring agencies, but the one I always recommend to friends who are interested in becoming tutors is Osborne Cawkwell. Lucy and her team are friendly and helpful, and they treat their tutors with respect. They are also seriously professional, organised and effective at what they do. Other agencies pale in comparison.

“Lucy and her excellent team are extremely organised”
I have been a tutor with OC for 8 years and I cannot recommend them highly enough: I have never found another agency where I am as happy with the personal service and with the relationship that I have with the team. The parents of the children I tutor also feel the same. Lucy and her excellent team are extremely organised, reliable and efficient with timetabling, planning and scheduling. They have always dealt with me in a kind, open and respectful manner, and they always consider my personal needs and requirements as a tutor, alongside those of their clients.

“In-depth knowledge of the British education system”
Lucy and her team are all dedicated to one goal: matching students and tutors to produce the best results possible. One on one sessions work beautifully when a bond of trust is established and everyone at OC always aims at creating the perfect match of student and tutor in terms of skill set but also personality. Every member of the team has in-depth knowledge of the British education system and all the exam boards in place and a great appreciation of students’ needs, thus always putting together the right working pairs. OC is a caring and highly professional agency that I warmly recommend.
Murielle – French tutor
“Always approachable and incredibly supportive”
I have been working as a tutor with OC for ten years, and have taught over 150 students – from KS1 to undergraduate level. I initially chose OC because of their high level of professionalism and because they were so friendly and I’m still here! I have the utmost respect for their ethos and how they work. The team in the office have an immense understanding of the individual needs of each student, and their tutors. They are always approachable and incredibly supportive. OC also invest deeply in their tutors, from the interview process onwards, through on-going training and social events. They are a truly excellent organisation; both to work for and to employ.
Joe – Science and maths tutor
“Professional, efficient, conscientious”
I would recommend Osborne Cawkwell without hesitation! I have worked with them for five years now, and have tutored over seventy students with whom they have matched me. I have always found them to be professional, efficient, conscientious and considerate in their dealings both with myself and my clients. I would also have to say that they have been fantastic at ensuring that I’m paid promptly for the work I have done. In all then an outstanding agency for tutors and tutees alike.
