Wentworth Education in London

Wentworth Education - Premium Tutoring Agency in London

Wentworth Education is one of London's leading private tutoring agencies. We supply home tutors to families all across London and the home counties. Normally our private tutors travel to their student's home for the tutoring sessions. However, for older students further out of London we often encourage students and tutors to meet at a mutually convenient location (for example a public library or a University). We also offer residential and online / shared whiteboard tutoring if you live further afield.

We are a premium agency. Since we know all of our tutors, we strive for the best possible match between our clients and tutors. If we do not think we can find you the perfect tutor immediately, we will tell you as much, but then carry on looking for you. If you are looking for cheap or mid-market tutors with little to no support from the agency beyond the sale process then stop reading now. But if you want the best tutor with the best agency in London drop us a line to discuss your particular needs.

Subjects we Cover in London

UK Syllabus & British Exams

In London we have private tutors who can teach any school or university subject. Most of our students want help alongside their curriculum, and the majority of our tutors specialise in a particular subject, supporting their students focused insights and materials. But we also have many excellent tutors who specialise in across-the-board applications, skills such as academic writing, and exam-orientated revision. We believe we can tutor pretty much any thing, so if you’ve got an unusual request, feel free to get in touch. We’ve even been asked to teach the Rubik's cube and Origami!

UK Syllabus & British Exams

In London we have private tutors who can teach any subject at any level in the UK syllabus, from primary all the way through to A Level, Pre U and IB. Each year we help students apply to Oxbridge and prepare for their Oxbridge interviews and the entrance exams, like STEP and TSA. Most of our tutors went through the British system as children and then went on to study in Oxbridge or the Russell Group. We are therefore amply qualified to advise you on applications and help you maximise your chances of getting in to your top choice University.

US Syllabus & Standardised Tests

US Syllabus & Standardised Tests

We also specialise in the US syllabus and regularly tutor children at American schools in and around London, for example the American School of London (ASL). Dr Katherine Wiles, our founder, grew up in the US system, as did many of our tutors. Each year we prepare children to sit the SSAT and ISEE exams, helping them get into their top choice schools. We also support older students in preparing for their SAT and AP exams, and with college applications in the US or the UK.

We work with families who are moving to the United States, and need help getting their children into the top schools in their new area. In the past, we’ve helped students gain acceptance into Los Angeles, Washington DC and Greenwhich Connecticut areas; for example: Harvard Westlake, Roland Park, and Brinmore. We are able to provide intensive last minute tutoring – often, British families moving to America only have a few weeks before their children need to take these unfamiliar tests. Moving from one syllabus to another can be daunting, and our team of specialised tutors help students cover gaps, gain confidence and ensure they are in an excellent position to start their new school.

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 took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students. I was also made Director-in-Residence and Master-in-Charge of Debating. Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...
Nicholas is a recent graduate of the University of Cambridge, where he studied Preclinical Medicine before moving to pursue global health projects. After a stint at the World Health Organisation Nicholas completed an MSc in International Health Policy at the London School of Economics and now works for the National Health Service in England. 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'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 grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.

Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. 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. ...
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. ...
