"My daughter got on well with Jean-Ignace and said that he made things seem less complicated. I was impressed with his professional approach (he has already sent some sample questions that my daughter hadn’t seen before) and was pleased that my daughter seemed so comfortable with him."Mother of A Level French student
"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
