"Hi Geraldine, just wanted to let you know that I am very happy (and surprised) with my results! I got 9s in all the Sciences! Thank you so much for all your help over the last year. You really helped me so so much and I truly enjoyed the lessons - my love for Biology was definitely inspired by some of our conversations and I’m thinking of taking both Biology and Chemistry for A level partly because of how you made the subjects interesting for me. Thank you again for everything."GCSE Biology Student
"Tom is very patient and detailed. He is happy to explain things multiple times when needed and to go over a topic without any prior warning. Lots of teachers tend to regurgitate textbook but Tom actually knew his stuff. Like the way the class was set out with theoretical explanations followed by relevant exam questions. He arrives with a great set of notes and more importantly work solutions."Mother of A Level student
Keystone Tutors A Level Guide
Advanced Level qualifications, better known as A Levels, help students enter universities or colleges or careers related to the subjects they choose to study. Originally introduced in the UK in 1951, they are also offered in a range of Commonwealth countries, and are normally studied over the course of a 2 year period. Most students will study either 3 or 4 A Levels between the ages of 16 and 19.
