We represent a team of university Spanish tutors who are graduates from leading UK universities. They possess detailed knowledge of the academic requirements of Spanish and have an outstanding ability to connect with their students, impart their subject knowledge and explain concepts.
The Spanish tutors we work with are dedicated professionals, who commit to tutoring because of their passion and skill for the job.
We go the extra mile to match you with a great tutor and ensure a perfect fit.
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 you are at, your academic ability, and your strengths and perceived weaknesses. Tutors will then devise a programme tailored to your specific circumstances.
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.
