Please note that our support with EPQ is limited to helping your child in thinking about and selecting the focus for their EPQ, and in developing an effective plan to complete it. They can ensure your child thinks broadly about the subject they are focusing on, considering all angles and approaches carefully. Tutors will follow guidelines set out by the exam boards and therefore will be unable to directly review, edit or provide written feedback on the EPQ.

"Andrew was an absolute godsend when my daughter was working on her EPQ. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to guide her through restructuring the essay. He was very organised and was completely up to speed with the work she had done before the session. My daughter wrote all the dissertation herself, however, his input on where the essay needed more focus and content was invaluable. He was extremely kind to fit her into his schedule as we contacted Keystone Tutors only days before the dissertation was due. We were delighted and very lucky to find a tutor with such expertise. Thank you so much Andrew."Parent of a Year 12 student
