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.

In my spare time, I am a contributor to magazines including The Spectator and Prospect Magazine, and am currently writing a television series on free schools at the NFTS. ...
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 graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2013 in Natural Sciences (specialising in chemistry) and went straight onto the Teach First graduate programme. For the past three years, I have taught science at Essa Academy in Bolton to students with a vast range of abilities and levels of engagement and have led on engaging and challenging gifted and talented students looking to apply to the top universities.

I am a professional, enthusiastic and committed teacher who is passionate about sharing knowledge and experience with students of all ages and abilities. At Essa, I strive to instil in my students a determination to succeed and a confidence in their own abilities that allows them to maximise their potential – qualities that I have transferred to tutoring with great success. ...
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 am a recent graduate of the University of Oxford, where I received a first-class MPhil in Politics. At Oxford, I was a Rhodes Scholar at New College, and I served as Tutor in politics at Keble College. Prior to my arrival in the United Kingdom, I attended Brown University, where I double-majored in history and economics, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. Following graduation in 2014, I spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar at the Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I am fluent in both American and British education systems — and have a passion for education, more broadly. My areas of expertise are maths, history, Spanish, College Counselling and preparation across the board. ...
Having boarded and studied at the King's School Canterbury, I then went on to graduate with a first class BA and an MPhil from St John’s College Cambridge in July 2017. I was then employed as a Philosophy and Theology teacher at Rugby school. Here I underwent teacher training for the PGCE and also functioned as a full time tutor to ten GCSE level boys, as well as choral assistant and shooting coach. Having worked closely with the head of Oxbridge, I am in a very strong position to advise on applications to leading universities worldwide. Balancing work with a competitive rifle-shooting at a semi-professional level requires huge drive and efficiency. I now work as a full time tutor, and bring this drive to each of the pupils that I work with in the hope that I can help them to realise their own passions and potential. ...

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. ...
