Meet the Team
Keystone Tutors was founded in 2007 by Will Orr-Ewing. Will began tutoring after he graduated from Oriel College, Oxford with a degree in History and couldn’t believe that he had stumbled upon a way to make a living that was at once so enjoyable and so rewarding. He was soon joined by one of his oldest friends, Josh Pull, who also studied History with Will at Oriel College, Oxford. Josh had begun a career in investment banking at Lazard before coming and running Keystone with him. Since then, Josh and Will have grown the company together, alongside a wonderful team of talented and dedicated individuals, now headed up by Managing Director Ed Richardson.

Ed read Zoology at St. Andrews University before completing a Secondary Science PGCE at Oxford University. He has since undertaken a Masters in Teaching and Learning at Oxford too. Prior to joining Keystone, he taught all three sciences to GCSE as well as A Level Biology at an outstanding state comprehensive academy in Oxfordshire.
As our Director of Education, Ed is primarily responsible for leading our client management team, the tutor recruitment process and generally overseeing our employed tutors' professional development. Ed also advises our families on a wide range of educational issues; he has particular experience with schools and university advice as well as home-schooling.
More broadly, Ed firmly believes that providing tutors with the appropriate levels of training better equips them to support the individual needs of their students. He recognises the value of educational literature and spends time researching current publications, in particular the nature of personalised learning and its benefit to students of all abilities. Outside of Keystone Ed is a Trustee for the Temple Grove Schools Trust and speaks for The Parent Company at a range of different companies on ‘The Importance of Parents in a Child’s Attainment’ and ‘The British Education System’.
