"I just wanted to take a few moments to express to you how absolutely delighted we were with our French tutor, Lou. We were so pleased with our son's progress under her tutelage. She is lovely and warm to speak to, and utterly focused and clear in her teaching. We could hear, week by week, our son's growing confidence in his ability to speak French, and, by the end, he was doing very well indeed in his mock Common Entrance French Exams. Lou prepared him brilliantly! Thank you so very much for sending Lou our way. I shall be delighted to recommend Lou and Keystone Tutors to everyone"MOTHER OF 13+ FRENCH PUPIL
"Tom is absolutely delighted with his A and we are very grateful to his tutor Jill. In first taking on the challenge, Jill was quick to assess the key areas of focus for Tom and developed a tailored approach to improve key aspects of his written, spoken and aural French. Under Jill’s careful tutelage Tom made rapid progress in all areas of the subject and like him, we are delighted with his result. To Jill, our sincerest thanks."MOTHER OF A LEVEL FRENCH STUDENT
