"As our daughter had never studied Philosophy before, I asked Keystone Tutors to recommend a tutor in this subject for her. Andy has been helping her with her preparations for Philosophy A-level exams and I can highly recommend him. Andy is not only very qualified in this subject but he is dedicated to making the subject understandable and showed her the different methods one works for to get the grades desired for Philosophy.
