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 8,300 hours through Keystone with more than 350 families. Her independent sector teaching experience enables her to provide a high level of support to her tutees.
Rachel is a qualified History and Politics teacher who has a wealth of experience both in the classroom and a 1:1 setting. She has a positive attitude and uses a range of learning techniques to support her students.
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.

Geoffrey is a passionate tutor with a wealth of academic experience. At his interview we were struck by his professionalism and drive.
"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
The Oxford History Aptitude Test (HAT)
Students often feel a little uneasy about the Oxford HAT at first, because its format has changed over time, and because it is very different from A-level exams. To make the test a less daunting prospect, I have created an introductory guide for candidates as 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.
