Safe Private Education During Coronavirus Pandemic & Lockdowns

At Wentworth Education, Safety Is Our Number One Priority

Our priority during this time is keeping you, our clients, your children, our teachers, our loved ones, and the vulnerable individuals in our society safe.

During local and national lockdowns we transition all teachers, clients, and sessions to online portals and video conference facilities. We have advised teachers to absolutely NOT visit clients in person in line with school and government guidance. We ask that you respect this policy where it applies - according to government guidelines, Wentworth policy, or Tutor and Client agreement.

When Tutoring In Person, Stay Safe!

If you are tutoring in person (again), then please follow government advice as it changes from time to time, and be responsible. We advise you consider wearing face-masks and ensure there is suitable sanitation and ventilation when tutoring. If you are showing virus symptoms then PLEASE remember to isolate and protect those around you from potential infection.

Further places to get more information about staying safe include the government website - which has plenty of advice:

There are many more places online that provide advice for staying safe during this time. In particular, please check your local guidance!

Where There Is Risk, We Recommend Remote Education Via Online Systems

If you are not already working with us via online teaching, and are willing to give online video and shared whiteboard teaching a try, then we encourage you and your family to try it!

Most of our teachers use Skype and a document sharing system as there are several excellent shared whiteboard services and professional video conferencing facilities that we regularly use to work with clients across the globe. For example, our teachers often use Zoom Conferencing, which is free for 1-to-1 calls and has an integrated shared-whiteboard feature. We work with hundreds of families on these systems - and online teaching does work.

Please feel free to contact us contact us, or ask your teacher, if you would like to hear more. All of our tutors who work In Person can also work remotely via these online systems. Indeed, we work with some of our clients on an ongoing basis from across the world in this way, many of whom are in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Mainland China.

Lessons We Have Learned From Tutoring During Lockdown from Hong Kong, Singapore, Mainland China, and Europe

We have been supporting many families in Hong Kong, Singapore, China, and now extensively in London where schools have been shut since late January / early February. Our experience has been that schools move lessons online which can be effective but requires some support to ensure students are still engaged. Our biggest challenge has been boredom as students are struggling to get exercise and organise play with friends; this has been a particular issue in cities without access to gardens. Some of our clients have set up Skype play time. Our teachers can recommend books for reading, engaging games, and any other number of activities and are happy to do everything from design board games to support creative play. If you would like to discuss our learnings, please feel free to contact our Head Tutors. We will also aim to update the website as we learn more and establish best practices.

School Closures in UK due to Coronavirus

In the UK, schools have been closed and public exams have been cancelled. At Wentwoth, we are very experienced at working with children remotely and designing home schooling and remote learning programs. Please contact us if there is anything we can do to support you and your family during this time of uncertainty.

Please Bear With Us

We are experiencing a surge in demand from our existing clients and from new clients; both from the UK, but also internationally. We are expecting many schools in Europe and America to close for an extended period of time, and many families are asking for additional support and home-schooling during this period.

As a valued customer, we very much so want to be able to do everything we can to support you and your educational needs. However, with the surge in demand and as we approach the Easter holidays, many of our best teachers are unavailable. We ask for your patience as we try to meet your requests, and we do encourage you to confirm your times over the next few months with your teachers.
