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, from mathematics and the sciences; to english and the humanities; to exam preparation for all ages, subjects, and curricula. 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.

I grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.

Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. I've worked with students of all abilities, with the bulk of my experience tutoring Maths and Physics at A-level and GCSE standard. I also tutor Biology and Chemistry, drawing on the past two years I have spent studying Medicine. Studying Medicine has enhanced my tutoring ability, as we spend a considerable amount of time developing our communication skills. ...
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. ...
I am a graduate from Cambridge with 6 years teaching experience at some of the best schools in the country, including St Paul's School, helping students of all ages and abilities understand and appreciate chemistry. I take great pleasure finding the best way to approach difficult topics with students and try to make all of my lessons as relevant and engaging as possible. ...
I'm originally from New York, and have been living in London for a bit over a year now. After graduating from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Creative Writing (Cum Laude), I received my Master's degree from the London Film School. I've been privately tutoring for years, as a peer tutor on Harvard's campus with the Bureau of Study Council, as well as with private agencies. I also have extensive experience as an Admissions Representative in the Harvard Admissions Office. I specialise in the American curriculum and US College Counselling, but know and work with the English curriculum as well. ...
I have experience teaching a range of ages, both privately part-time and in full time employment as a teacher at Hurstpierpoint College, where I worked for a year before starting my degree at Oxford University. I have a particular interest in entrance into the UK's top schools and Universities, teaching 11 plus, Common Entrance, and preparing students for Oxbridge. I am aided by a detailed understanding of UK independent schools as well as experience preparing for the American education system at ISEE and SSAT level in particular. I have delivered private tuition to children between 5 and 20 years. I find tutoring immensely rewarding and particularly enjoy the focused nature of assisting an individual with their academic goals. ...
I studied Natural Sciences at Pembroke College, Cambridge graduating with a II.I in my Chemistry Master’s and with a first in my Bachelor’s in Natural Sciences. Throughout my four years at Cambridge University, I was awarded the BP prize for Chemistry as well as three Foundation Scholarship awards. Before Cambridge I attended King’s College School, Wimbledon where I completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma, achieving 45 points. Prior to that, I studied at The Tiffin Girls' School where I went on to achieve straight A* in my GCSE's.

I have tutored Chemistry HL & SL, Biology HL and Maths HL to students attending revision camps as well as privately in person or over Skype. Additionally, I have taught A level Biology and Chemistry for five years, with students all achieving fantastic grades and ending up in their chosen University. Lastly, I have been tutoring GCSE Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics for the past five years so am well versed with the syllabus. ...
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.

Nicholas is a recent graduate of the University of Cambridge, where he studied Preclinical Medicine before moving to pursue global health projects. After a stint at the World Health Organisation Nicholas completed an MSc in International Health Policy at the London School of Economics and now works for the National Health Service in England. With a mother as a teacher, and many other family members working in education, he was exposed to the world of education at an early age, and has experience in working with children of all ages covering a variety of subjects. He has also spent time teaching in China and Kenya during university holidays. ...
My name is Sasha and I'm a junior doctor working at Homerton University Hospital, in North-East London. I completed an undergraduate degree, and Masters, in chemistry (with chemical biology) at Magdalen College, Oxford, and then went on to study Medicine (Graduate-Entry) at King's College London. I have been tutoring for the past 7 years, across a range of subjects and levels; my aim is always to broaden and develop my students' understanding of their subject, before going on to develop exam technique and build confidence. ...
I am a home-schooling specialist and trained teacher, with a Cambridge first-class degree and experience working at a top UK boarding school. Having taught classes of students of wide-ranging abilities, I am aware of the importance of catering for the specific needs of individuals; this is what primarily draws me to tutoring. There is nothing more satisfying than having the time to sit and work through the challenges that a particular student is facing, one-to-one. As a teacher, I know the value that this can add to both their achievement and also their enjoyment of schoolwork. So often seemingly overwhelming problems are born of a simple misunderstanding which can be quickly ironed out within individual tutor time, and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the individual learning styles and interests of my students. ...
