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 group classes in London and skype / shared whiteboard tutoring if you live further afield.

We are a small but premium agency. Since we personally know all of our tutors well we can guarantee to make the best possible match between our clients and tutors. If we don't think we can find you the perfect tutor immediately, we'll tell you as much, but then carry on looking for you. If you're 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 and we can 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 with Maths or Science, and this is where most of our tutors specialise. But we have many excellent tutors who specialise in the humanities and languages. We believe we can tutor pretty much anything, so if you've got an unusual request the 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 and level in the UK syllabus, from GCSE, A Level and Pre U to 13+, 11+ and primary. Each year we help several students apply to Oxbridge and prepare for their Oxbridge interviews and the STEP exams. 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 in the American schools in and around London. Each year we prepare numerous children for the ISEE and SSAT exams and consistenly help students get into their top choice schools. We have helped students gain acceptance to most of the American schools in London and the Home Counties, for example the American School of London (ASL). We also help several older ASL students prepare for their APs and SATs. Our Founder and Head Tutor, Katherine Wiles, grew up in the US system (she went to school in Princeton, New Jersey); as did many of our other tutors.

We even work with families who are moving to the United States and can help children get into the top schools in their new area. This year, for example, we helped students gain acceptance into the Los Angeles, Washington DC and Greenwhich Connecticut areas; for example: Harvard Westlake, Roland Park, and Brinmore. We can help with very intensive last minute training - more often than not British families moving out to America only have two or three weeks before their kids need to take the tests.

I was educated at Westminster School and Oxford, and have worked as a private English tutor since the beginning of the 2016 academic year. My students have ranged in age from six to eighteen, studied a variety of different curricula, and all have specific needs that I strive to meet in every lesson.I continually work to pass on my great love of literature to every student I teach. I've been lucky enough to have experienced great teaching throughout my whole life; it is my passion and my privilege to pass on my love of learning. ...
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. ...
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. ...

After a stint working at the Cabinet Office I am now conducting freelance policy research. My timetable is flexible and essentially self-managed, giving me lots of time to tutor outside of my other work.
