Online Tutoring with Wentworth Education

We work with families across the globe, providing the highest calibre of tutoring no matter where you are based. The best tutor isn’t always the closest one, and we are proud to be able to offer valuable, engaging and creative lessons to any student who gets in touch. Online lessons are flexible, and can be easily fitted in between after-school activities, or while the student is abroad. Students often form great relationships with their personal tutor, and the sense of continuity provided by online lessons with one mentor has proved hugely beneficial when preparing for change.

It also means that we can keep working with some of our most sought-after tutors even if they no longer live in London, meaning we can be highly selective when choosing who best suits your child’s needs.

With online test formats becoming the norm across UK and US school application programs, it’s a great way to become familiar with computer-based learning.

How Online Tutoring Works

Our tutors are all practiced in giving lessons across communication platforms such as Skype and Zoom, which allow them to create a natural and accessible learning environment. They share material online, using shared whiteboards and googledocs to track the student’s progress throughout the lesson. These platforms also make homework sharing and updating instantly available, and allow the students to access their work from any device. Once they’re familiar with the interface, online lessons follow the same format as face-to-face, and have yielded fantastic results for a large number of our students!

Examples of Where Online Tutoring Works Especially Well

Areas in which online tutoring has worked particularly well for us in the past include:

  • International Students
    We serve many international families, who regularly travel between family homes across the world, and others we are based in Asia, Europe, or America, who work with our excellent London based tutors. Online tutoring also complements regular trips to other major city hubs by our senior tutors with international client bases.
  • During Boarding School Term Time
    Many of our (international and British) students attend elite boarding schools in Britain, America, and Switzerland. We regularly work with students attending these schools to complement school work during term time as well as at home during school holidays.
  • Students Based Far Away From London
    Some of our UK based clients work with our elite network of tutors and professional teachers. This is especially true for the more niche subjects and specialist exams that we offer. Examples include: STEP Maths, University Applications Consultancy, GRE, UKCAT, and so on.
  • ISEE & SSAT
    Especially for families moving to America who need to get their children into good American schools, your children will need to take either the SSAT or the ISEE. But also for families moving to the London area and want to gain admission to the US schools in and aroud London: ASL, TASIS, Cobham Ammerican Community School, etc.
  • 11+ & 13+ Common Entrance Pre-Tests
    Children are expected to sit verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests for both 11+ entrance and common entrance to UK schools at 13 which often take place on school computers. Practice with online resources is the perfect way to prepare for these tests.
  • International Students Applying to UK Boarding Schools
    We support many families each year with their applications to UK boarding schools. We provide advice, consulting, and support the application process to UK schools; but also tutor students who are taking scholarship, school entrance, and common entrance exams. We are adept at tutoring the differences betwee UK the syllabus and those of other countries.
  • A Level Subject Support
    For students at boarding school across the UK, meeting with a tutor online in the evenings is the best way of optimising their potential without having to fill their short weekends with extra lessons.
  • Oxbridge Interview Preparation
    A number of our most senior tutors currently hold positions at universities across the UK, and are therefore unable to meet students in London. Via Skype, students are able to benefit from their support when applying to Oxbridge, or for mock interviews, without having to travel.
  • Moving To the UK or To America
    For students coming to the UK from abroad, having a tutor based in London is sometimes their only chance to meet with someone who has first-hand knowledge of the school system they’re about to enter. Likewise, for students moving from the UK to the US or further afield, knowing that their tuition can continue uninterrupted can be a great way to boost their confidence as well as their grades.
  • One Off Bespoke Consultations
    Our head tutors and founders are available for one off bespoke consultations to exclusive families, for a fee. We often run these consultations over video or phone call as families are often not based in London.
  • Personal Needs
    There is a host of reasons why travel for student or tutor might be inconvenient, but this should not impact a student’s chance to learn with someone they look up to and will be inspired by. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think online tutoring is something that would suit your needs!
