My son was recently diagnosed as dyslexic and Oli has been an invaluable support to him, helping him settle into his academic studies and working tirelessly to build his confidence. Oli has been instrumental in helping him with effective study strategies giving him the tools to plan and produce essays and revise for end of module exams. Oli relates so well to my son and and has offered patient and caring moral support as well as outstanding academic teaching. Oli is always on hand to help and is totally committed to my son's academic progress and wellbeing. We are delighted with the service which he has provided, not only my son but us, as parents"Mother of University student
"We are coming to the end of the school year and I just wanted to say a big thank you for teaching and supporting my daughter who cannot praise you enough. Most amazingly, she has discovered her joy for creative writing and reading. As a direct result of all your work with my daughter her grades and her confidence have shot up and I can see that you are motivating her to go way beyond her school work. Her new school has noticed the change in her as well. She has received excellent and very encouraging feedback from both her English teachers and her writing is often used as examples during class."Parent of Year 12 student

Many of our tutors have received enhanced training to work with students with dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia, autism and other learning difficulties. The 1-to-1 tutoring environment allows students with educational needs more time to access, process and reinforce their learning, and, importantly, to ask for support.

When you request a tutor through Keystone we spend a significant amount of time learning about your circumstances. Priding ourselves on how well we know our tutors’ specialist strengths, we ensure that we put forward the very best tutor for your requirements.
During the first session the tutor starts by assessing where the child is at, their academic ability, their strengths and perceived weaknesses. Tutors will then devise a programme tailored to the specific circumstances and needs of your child.
After the first lesson, one of our dedicated client managers will contact you to find out how the lesson went. Our client managers are always available at the end of the phone and they are frequently praised for their efficiency, dedication and responsiveness.
