About Wentworth

If you want to build a ship, don't start by distributing tasks and getting people to gather the wood and cut the planks, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Our Philosophy

A Letter to parents from our founder, Dr Katherine Wiles

 
Dear Parent,
 

Academic excellence is the cornerstone of Wentworth Education. We operate under a simple objective: that we find the right counsellors, teachers, and educational mentors to support students in reaching their academic potential. We pride ourselves in helping our students improve their academic results and develop confidence and resilience.

Wentworth Education - Premium Tutoring Agency in London

For the last decade I have taught privately and through nonprofit organisations. What has impressed me the most is that, with the right support, every student has the enthusiasm and interest to reach his or her potential. In today’s world, a rigorous education is an essential resource for any young mind. Fostering a love of learning and an appetite for further study is invaluable. Wentworth Education is committed to developing the curiosity that sustains a lifetime of learning.

Education is a partnership between student, teacher, parent, and mentor. With Wentworth Education, I wanted to create a business that I as an educator would want to work for. True excellence in an educator is a rare combination of intelligence, communication skills, empathy, and creativity. Wentworth Education is committed to supporting these select individuals work their magic. We have teachers who are passionate about imparting knowledge and together can teach just about anything you can think of. Furthermore, our academic mentors will support your child's intellectual development inspiring confidence, communication skills, and curiosity.

Yours Faithfully,

Dr Katherine Wiles
