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.

We can provide Classical Civilisation tuition tailored to specific exams, from GCSE Classical Civilisation to A Level Classical Civilisation. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Classical Civilisation papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Classical Civilisation to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE Classical Civilisation students will need a solid grounding in topics like the Homeric World, Rome, and Women in the Ancient World. The Classical Civilisation tutors we represent will help your child develop a fluent knowledge of the appropriate methods and concepts, and maximise their ability to communicate their knowledge of Classical Civilisation in response to a range of different questions. We aim to build up your child’s confidence, speed, and accuracy under pressure in Classical Civilisation exams, equipping them to excel at GCSE level.
A Level Classical Civilisation is a well-respected subject and students have to master a wide range of complex topics to succeed. The Classical Civilisation tutors we work with are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them demonstrate their knowledge effectively under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
The CAT and CAAS are designed to help whittle down the number of students moving on to interview stage at Oxford and Cambridge respectively, and as such are rigorous and competitive examinations. The Classics tutors we work with can help your child maximise their performance in this assessment, building on their knowledge and helping them to demonstrate the depth of their understanding successfully, as they compete for places to read Classics at the prestigious university of their choice.
The Classical Civilization tutors we represent can benefit your child, whether the tuition is delivered in person or online.
The tutors we represent are able to deliver in-person tuition within central London. For those outside of central London we offer online tutoring.
The tutors we represent are well versed in delivering online tuition, using videoconferencing and an interactive whiteboard. This gives students, wherever they are in the world, access to experienced, high quality tutors who are familiar with the requirements for Classical Civilisation.
