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!

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 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.

...
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 was born and raised in Washington, D.C., attending area private schools until matriculating at Yale University in 2008. After graduating, I spent several years working in PR, Marketing, and Content Creation roles before moving to the UK in 2017 to pursue my MPhil in Film and Screen Studies at Cambridge. I have worked with Wentworth since 2018, focusing mainly on US entrance exams for secondary schools and university.

I have worked successfully with clients both in-person and via Skype. In addition to teaching the material covered in these exams, I use my personal familiarity with the tests to focus particularly on helping students get used to the stressful and strange test-taking experience so that their results can best represent their full potential. ...
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've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English literature. Before that, I took IB at Wellington College, in which I scored 43 out of a possible 45 points. I've tutored in London, Oxford and Hong Kong, worked as a nanny, and set up and continue to run a school sponsorship program in Nepal, which provides disadvantaged children with the opportunity to be educated in Kathmandu. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in something they thought they would never understand, or felt they weren't good at, turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 23 years old, but have most experience with Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+. The breath of the IB course means that I'm able to teach a range of subjects to a high standard, and have great experience balancing academic work with other areas of life, as well as finding important overlaps between diverse subjects and interests. ...
I graduated from Cambridge University (Newnham College) with a 2:1 in Social Anthropology (and a 1st in Development Studies) in 2009. I have been tutoring private clients since 2005 in subjects ranging from English, Maths, English as foreign language, Interview Technique and Preparation, Test & Exam Preparation and Mentoring. However, my current focus and speciality is tutoring students for all levels of the ISEE and SSAT test as well as tutoring the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. As a child, I attended the Chinese International School in Hong Kong and Alice Smith International School in Kuala Lumpur and then boarded at school in the UK as an overseas student. As a consequence, I particularly enjoy working with students based in Asia applying to international schools and preparing them for the cultural and curriculum adjustment of becoming an overseas student. I am now based in Singapore and tutor students of all ages here and in Hong Kong primarily. I have an excellent track record of increasing test scores and helping tutees to have the confidence and ability to achieve the grades required for their desired schools whilst also acting as a mentor throughout the preparation process. ...
Nicholas is a recent graduate of the University of Cambridge, where he studied Preclinical Medicine before moving to pursue global health projects.

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. ...
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. ...
