Euan completed his Economics degree at the University of Leeds in 2020. He tutored during his studies and it has now become his full-time focus.
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.

"Thank you so much for helping me out this year with my economics. I have be accepted into my 1st choice uni, and I couldn’t have done it without your help."A Level Economics student
"I was performing at a D grade in Economics when I asked my father to employ a tutor to help, so that I had the required grade for moving on to University. My tutor Rose has made me a more confident and analytical student when it comes to applying my economic knowledge down to paper, where she has helped me become the A grade student I have always been aiming for. She has been able to cover every aspect of my Economics syllabus and more. Rose is very positive and she is concise in her explanations yet with a broad outlook, making our Skype sessions very engaging. I could not ask for a better tutor and will miss her classes very much!"Year 13 Economics Student - Dunottar School for Girls
What is the difference between IGCSE and GCSE?
GCSE and IGCSE are certainly very similar. Both qualifications are at the same level: they are designed to test the completion of the UK National Curriculum's "Key Stage 4". They are usually sat at the end of UK Year 11, in the year a student becomes 16. They have no age restriction, though - and have been sat by many students younger and older. By most higher education institutions and employers, they are seen as equivalent qualifications.
Top Tips for GCSE (and iGCSE) Exam Technique
Some of the most common mistakes that Keystone’s tutors see relate to exam technique. So many marks are lost by students who have not read the question properly and answer the question they thought they read, or wanted to read.
