Isabelle Waring

Independent School Expert

Isabelle is an independent school expert and one of the UK’s most sought after private tutors. With over 10 years’ experience, she has helped students gain entry to the UK’s best independent schools, such as Westminster, St Paul’s, St Paul’s Girls’, Godolphin and Latymer and Eton College. She has also successfully prepared several scholars, including Queen’s Scholars (Westminster) and King’s Scholars (Eton).

Isabelle is a member of British Mensa and studied French and Philosophy at university, including a year studying Metaphysics at the Sorbonne, Paris. She was called to the Bar of England & Wales as a barrister before making education her full time occupation.

Isabelle believes that the most efficient way for children to perform confidently in exams, as well as their wider academic work, is to develop their fundamental skills and abstract thinking abilities before testing with practice questions. Her unique method has meant 100% of Isabelle’s students achieve at least one of their top three schools, and 98% achieve all three.

Isabelle works with parents and children to identify target schools, create a bespoke learning plan that fits seamlessly into family life and advises on every step of the admissions process. She works with students from nursery through to senior school. She also has an intimate knowledge of the US school system and helps students transfer between the US and the UK.

Isabelle has travelled extensively with her clients, including to the US, the Maldives, France, Portugal and Italy. She has worked with many prominent families and is known for her discreet, under-the-radar approach.

She can meet via Zoom or in person.

Isabelle operates an extensive waiting list and early communication is strongly recommended.

Isabelle has worked magic on my son. She is clear and engaging, and her industry knowledge is unparalleled. We had a carousel of tutors before Isabelle but once we met her we knew that we needed nobody else. My son went from a struggling 9-year-old to a confident and successful 11-year-old. She was there for us at every step and we could not have done it without her.
Isabelle took my son to an entirely new level.
Isabelle made my daughter so confident! It was a joy to watch and I cannot recommend her enough. She manages to be both lovely and efficient. She has an enormous knowledge about all the schools as well as what to expect from the process. More importantly though, she has made her focussed; she is a different student.
