"Alice had to step in just a few weeks before 11+ ISEB began and she hit the ground running. She breezed into the house bringing tranquillity and professional calm. I have never met a Keystone Tutor who is not on top of her brief but what was most welcome was that the kids absolutely loved being with her as well. “But, lessons are fun with Alice”, said my daughter when the 11+ exams ended. Quirky, intelligent, flexible, fun and worked a treat for my kid"Parent of Year 6 and Year 8 students
"Thank you so much for helping to bring this miracle! My daughter has been successful with her interviews for both Headington and Badminton, thanks to you"Mother of a 13+ interview candidate
