"Sam was a terrific help to my daughter - when she was dealing with the challenges of philosophy and moral arguments, he was a beacon of clarity and help. He really did encourage her too, and her confidence definitely grew. I would recommend Sam without reservation"Parent of a Year 13 student
"As our daughter started her A-levels Philosophy and she had never studied this subject 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 in making the subject understandable and showed her the different methods one works for to get the grades desired for Philosophy. In the beginning he helped her learn this subjects needs and then started to give her some homework to hone her skills in understanding Philosophy. He has always been punctual and a pleasure to have in our home."Mother of A Level Philosophy Student
