English Literature Tutoring

At Wentworth Education we see great English teaching as the hallmark of a talented tutor. This subject, alongside Mathematics, forms the essential academic foundation of any student at any level. As such it is perhaps our most carefully cultivated department. Our English tutors are selected for their exceptional qualifications in this subject. They are Oxford and Cambridge DPhil researchers, trainee Barristers, Ivy League graduates and even heads of department from some of England’s most prestigious schools.

English Books

However, a dazzling array of academic credentials is not enough to secure a place as a top English tutor on our books. Our tutors are, first and foremost, lifelong readers. Nothing motivates a student more than the company of a teacher who radiates intellectual curiosity and a passion for reading. We select tutors who set an example in this regard and can demonstrate to students what a love of literature can do for their minds as well as their career.

Our approach to English tutoring is based around the core skills that make up most of the examination questions a student will encounter. We look at a new pupil’s reading comprehension, textual analysis, creative writing and essay technique. The broad applicability of these skills is what makes really good English tutoring so beneficial. If a student can learn to read with a sharp eye for detail, and write with insight and clarity, they will flourish in every academic discipline.

English Literature Examinations

As a result of the breadth of qualifications that our tutors possess we are able to offer tutoring of the highest calibre across the complete range of both British and American schooling. We can provide specialist tuition in English Literature for:

I am an empathetic and enthusiastic tutor with over 1000 hours of experience and a member of the Tutor’s Association. Parents have consistently commented on my ability to inspire and build excellent rapport with their children. In all my tutorials, I endeavour to cultivate the untapped potential that is can be difficult to unlock in the very formal and hierarchical school environment. What is more, my experiences as a tutor and observations in schools have also given me a strong insight into how to develop a form of pedagogy that is congenial to tutorials but not irreconcilable with classroom teaching. ...
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 am a graduate of Durham University, where I completed a BA in English and Philosophy. Although I went to university in the UK, I grew up in New York, and completed all of my schooling in America. I attended one of the top boarding schools in the country, Groton School, on an academic scholarship. I took the SAT and AP exams, earning some of the highest scores in my class for both. I have been tutoring since the age of 15, as part of a tutoring program at Groton. I continued at university for English and Philosophy students, and post-graduation, here in London. Having attended both US and UK education systems, I understand and can work with both curriculums, especially with school and university entrance exams and processes. ...

I specialise in the American curriculum and US College Counselling, but know and work with the English curriculum as well. ...
I graduated from Durham University in 2012 with a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biology and Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I moved to London to begin work as a Medical Writer. This involved writing a variety of medical papers for the pharmaceutical industry for new, or developing, medical drugs.

In 2015 I made the change into teaching. I undertook my teaching degree at Goldsmith's University and specialised in Secondary Science. I am now a professional Science teacher based in South East London, teaching pupils aged 11-18 Chemistry, Biology and Physics to GCSE and Biology A-level. I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and am passionate about helping young people to understand and enjoy science. I encourage pupils to think on their own, scaffolding their learning and slowly taking away training wheels so they have the confidence and self-belief to make progress on their own. Tutoring allows me to have for the 1-1 teaching contact that young people so often need in order to reach their potential. ...

I have spent time working in a private children’s therapy clinic, and my career has lent itself to working with students with a diverse range of learning styles, including working with students with special learning needs (i.e. ADHD, autism spectrum, dyslexia / dyspraxia / dyscalculia etc).

I hold an MA in Clinical Psychology, and a BA in Sociology from the University of Toronto. I believe in recognising the unique potential in each of the students I work with. ...
