Established in 2007, Keystone Tutors is one of the UK’s leading private tutoring organisations. Here is a sample of the IB History tutors that we represent. They are predominantly based in London and work online with families based outside of London or overseas.
Alice is an Oxford-educated tutor who has taught over 7,600 hours through Keystone with more than 340 families. Her independent sector teaching experience enables her to provide a high level of support to her tutees.
Geoffrey is a passionate tutor with a wealth of academic experience. At his interview we were struck by his professionalism and drive.
Leo is an Oxford History graduate and has a wealth of experience of teaching the subject, as well as English, Maths, Science, Geography and RS up to the 13+ level. He has worked with Keystone since 2011 and has taught over 1,000 hours since he started.
Jacob has been working as a private tutor for a number of years. He works with GCSE and A Level students, as well as having experience preparing tutees for the 16+ examinations.
Nigel has a wealth of teaching experience and has spent many years as an examiner. He is passionate about history and continues to research different periods alongside his work as a teacher.
Liz is a Cambridge graduate who has been tutoring since 2017. She covers a range of subjects and read Japanese and Sociology at university.
"I just wanted to write to say an enormous thank you for all your hard work with my son on his Politics and History revision. I know he found the sessions hugely beneficial and from my perspective, you were a steady rock throughout the process. We could not have asked for more in a tutor — your commitment and attention to detail were second to none"Mother of A-level Politics and Pre-U History student
"He has been absolutely brilliant. He is always very patient and kind. He has provided excellent lessons and the children have learned a lot. My son got an A* and an A in his History papers, without a doubt he would not have achieved this without Josh’s help"Mother of 16+ candidate
Preparing for the Oxford History Aptitude Test (HAT)
All candidates for Oxford degree courses involving History must sit the History Aptitude Test (HAT). Students can often feel a little uneasy about the test at first, because its format has changed over time, and it is very different from A-level exams. To help make the test a less daunting prospect, I have created an introductory guide to what it entails and how best to prepare.
The Rise of the IB
The International Baccalaureate is now on offer at 194 schools across the UK, educating over 5000 students. The UK has happily ambled through the last half of a century with dreams that the A-Levels are the best assessment for eighteen year olds. Whilst most of us would have agreed, clearly others have been left wondering if there is a better option.
