Tara contacted Keystone when her family unexpectedly relocated to Portugal and her children needed support preparing for this educational transition.
Her son in Year 7 needed advice and support for applying to top UK boarding schools after the deadline, as well a full timetable of tuition for the child including English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, French and Latin to prepare for school entrance examinations.
Her younger son was in Year 5 and Keystone provided English, Maths, Science and SEN support for two terms before he was able to join his preferred international school in Portugal.
“Keystone was invaluable in ensuring that our children’s education did not suffer due to our move to Portugal. My sons have very different educational profiles and respond differently to different teachings styles. Poppy patiently worked with me to choose the right tutor for each child for each subject and I was thrilled by the calibre of all of them. Both sons not only thrived academically during their homeschooling period, they also rediscovered a love of learning due to the encouragement and challenge of the tutors. Ed was absolutely fantastic in providing advice and introductions to schools which he thought would suit my oldest son – listening to what we thought we wanted whilst also providing frank and objective insights. I could not be more grateful.”
