Biography & Interests

I was educated at Westminster School, and read PPE at Oxford, graduating in June 2016. As one of three brothers, I’m very used to being in a boisterous atmosphere and being around lots of young people. After graduating, I did a brief 6 month spell in the House of Commons before starting my own company in March 2017. I tutored consistently for 6 months, until raising a Seed Round for my company. I have been working on the company since, which has grown and improved. I have some more time on my hands, as we are re-building for a London launch before raising another round of funding - and thought I could use the time to provide some tutoring. I’m also training to gain my black belt in Karate, in which I have been training for many years.

Experience & Approach

I believe the role of a mentor is to engage a student in a way that a school teacher can’t – through going beyond the school curriculum and showing the value in learning, I am to instil others with the passion for academia that I was given by my tutors. Self-motivation is critical for success, and I believe that through the energy I bring to the role, I can help show how learning is more than about jumping through hoops – through recognising its value, students are far more likely to work hard at their studies. I have previously taught Maths up to 18, though I tend to focus on essay-based subjects. In particular history, RS, and economics up to A level. I also particularly enjoy preparing for entrance exams to Schools and Universities.

Testimonials

“All great with Keelan thanks so much actually I would like to adopt him. Hopefully Ed’s exams went well they obviously went miles better than they would have done without Keelan and of course the whole experience was fun and achievable rather than a worry and a battle.” Mother of Ed, April 2018

“WOW! What a FANTASTIC kick start to philosophy with Keelan yesterday! Bash already feels more confident even after two hours with his teaching, so glad we have finally found someone who I think is going to able to support Bash. Bravo!!” Mother of Bash, March 2019
