About Will Orr-Ewing

Will attended Harrow School, followed by Oxford. After graduating with a 2:1 in History, he began tutoring whilst writing his first novel. As he tutored, he became more interested in learning than in writing, and founded Russell Group Tutors in 2006. This later became Keystone Tutors, a large tutoring group which is committed to professionalising and legitimising one-on-one tuition, and to providing it in way that enables and encourages the student rather than providing a crutch.

As well as running Keystone Tutors full time, Will has also set up Chalkboard Learning, an online tutoring service, and DysTalk, a website for parents of children who are looking for information on how to optimise their child’s learning by providing information on specific learning difficulties.

Will was recently featured in the London Evening Standard. To read the article, please follow this link: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/lifestyle/article-24025406-the-dollar-1000-an-hour-super-tutor.do
