Wentworth Education is one of London's most prestigious tutoring agencies. Read more about our tutors, or simply give us a call! We would love to discuss your particular ambitions and how we can help you achive your goals.

Our Tutors

Our network of tutors is truly invaluable and what sets us apart from other agencies. We only accept the best. All our tutors attended world class universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. Many are qualified teachers, teaching in some of London's top schools, such as Westminster and St Pauls. We closely interview all of our tutors and our founders can personally vouch for all of them as superb role models. Our tutors are high achievers and all have plenty of experience in the subjects and exams that they teach. But we make sure they balance fun and engagement with targetted and focussed work to ensure their students cover the syllabus and achieve their goals in a stimulating way.

Subjects

We can teach all subjects for all ages. We truly excel in mathematics and the sciences, but we love a challenge and have been asked to tutor everything from the Rubik's cube to McKinsey interview tests. So please contact us if you have an unusual request. We regularly prepare students for all UK school exams: 11+, 13+, Common Entrance, Scholarship, GCSE, AS, A level, Pre-Us and some of the worlds most challenging maths exams (STEP and IMO). We also specialise in the US syllabus, US standardised tests, and US High School exams, including: ISEE & SSAT, SAT I, ACT, SAT II Subject Tests, Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.

Academic Mentoring

Our bespoke service supports students, guides them throughout the academic year, and supports their academic progress. Our student mentor is a trusted older sibling and takes on the role of director of studies, overseeing their academic success and progess at school. Our service is engaging for the student; we students in their key decisions and academic strategy; motivating and encouraging students them to succeed. Communication is key, and we make sure that everyone stays on top of the student’s academic status, providing an all important liaison between school, teachers, parents, student, and tutors.

University Applications

We can provide full and experienced guidance in how to apply to university in both the US and the UK. Our US college consultants are experts in advising on strategies to ensure that student’s tell a consistent and compelling story in their US early decision and common app. Our team of UK university consultants has a wealth of experience in mentoring students through UCAS, university and course selection, and even Oxbridge interviews. Applying to university alongside the challenge of getting good grades is stressful for any student, and Wentworth can help ease pressure by guiding students step by step along the way in the admissions process.

School Placements

We know that applying to schools in the UK and schools in the US is a complicated and time consuming process. For this reason, Wentworth has a dedicated schools team motivated to help your child win a place at a school of their choice. Our team know the admissions process and timelines of each school and can guide you and your child in how best to ensure that their application is successful. Our tutors can help strengthen your child’s academic profile and give them interview tactics, as well as communicate with our consultants on what more needs to be done to be a competitive applicant in this current time when top schools are all over subscribed.

Wentworth Education in the News

Pro Bono Education with Wentworth Education

Here at Wentworth Education, we work with students from all backgrounds. Our pro bono initiative focuses on students applying to university who have not necessarily had the support and resources they require. We work with academies and schools based in and around London, and are very proud of making a difference to students at one of the most critical times in their lives.

We are currently running a programme to support students through their university applications, with a particular emphasis on those applying to Oxbridge. This involves our excellent tutors delivering workshops on interview preparation and carrying out mock interviews with the students, thus sharing their expert knowledge with individuals who will really benefit from it. Over the last three years we have partnered with several Teach First schools in London.

Watch this space – as we will be adding more details soon. We look forward to sharing our stories of success with you!

Dr Katherine Wiles Speaks in TedX ASL

Dr Katherine Wiles, our founding director recently spoke in the American School of London's TedX Talk. Katherine adressed everyone's nightmare interview question: "Describe a time you faced adversity and how you dealt with it." There are many variants of this question, "Describe a time you failed," "Describe a time you took a risk," and so on, but they're all assessing the same ideas.

Katherine diagnoses the question and explains what it's asking, why interviewers ask it and how to think about answering it. She also dives into some case studies from British and American History and Bob, the naughty schoolboy. So if you're a Junior or a Senior in High School preparing for college interviews, applying for your first job in the milkround, or even an experienced interviewer, we hope you'll enjoy listening to and learn something from Katherine's talk.

Having studied in a boarding school in West Sussex, where I was a deputy-head of house and School prefect, I studied Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. At university, I encountered a wide variety of disciplines and ways of thinking; from politics, to psychology to history. I completed an MSc degree in Law and Anthropology at The London School of Economics (LSE), during which I worked as an administrator for a legal research network and organised conferences for a international think tank, most notably a conference at the European Union parliament in Brussels.

Following my studies, I worked for the Department for Education in Westminster, where I advised schools on how to progress and collaborate with each other. I also began volunteering with a grassroots educational charity that mentors children from underrepresented communities through organising sports coaching and workshops.

I then went on to teach History at Rugby School, a top-tier boarding school in the Midlands, where I taught students between the ages of 13 to 18 years. I was also a pastoral tutor in a boarding house, where I was responsible for helping the sixth form students with their university and UCAS applications. From September 2019 I will be teaching part-time at South Hampstead High School in London, as well as being Scholar in Residence at Wimbledon High School.

I see learning as an integral part of my life and enjoy learning with others to help achieve their goals. I frequently go to museums, exhibitions and galleries and write about these experiences. In October 2018, I started a part-time PhD in Education at the University of Cambridge, focusing on how Artificial Intelligence can help create learning dialogues through the use of chatbots. ...

I took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students. I was also made Director-in-Residence and Master-in-Charge of Debating. Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...
