History Tutoring at Wentworth Education

History Tutoring

History tutoring at Wentworth Education takes many forms. You tell us your needs; we come up with a plan of action to meet those needs. If you struggle at essay-writing, for example, we focus on strategies to help you change a liability into an academic strength. We meet you, in short, where you are. Our aim is to bring you where you want to be and indeed, beyond.

We're In The Trenches With You

Don’t see the point of studying history but you need to, simply to meet requirements? Do see the point but don’t get the finer points? Like the stories but hate the sources? Love the subject but can’t write essays? Like your course but can’t understand why your work comes back scribbled over in red, and you can’t seem to get the results you want? Whatever your interest or need, we take this as our starting point. We go into the trenches together. We seek to enable you to meet any and all challenges.

History Exam Preparation

We know that exams can be stressful times. We know that history students often have difficulty in putting what they know onto paper. So many facts, so little time. We know that it’s hard to distinguish what is relevant from what is not. We know that it’s often easier to tell the story and forget the analysis. We know that under pressure, with the best will in the world, students don’t always answer questions as they should.

Our goal is to transform the exam experience for you. Yes, it is about better results; but it is also equally about giving you excellent transferable skills – like concentration under pressure, time management, revision note-taking, planning.

For revision, we recommend focused and intense sessions held regularly. We identify the types of questions involved and the particular challenges a student faces. We review homework, practice tests and mock exams to identify issues. And then begins the task of resolving difficulties, of making a student feel confident of their own knowledge and skills going into an exam. We believe that you’ll go into an exam, marching not quivering. History doesn’t have to repeat itself.

I graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in July 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature. Throughout my school career I have balanced academic life with competitive tennis as a government funded, semi-professional player. This required huge drive and efficiency, for which I was rewarded with a stellar set of results at both GCSE and A-Level and a place at Oxford. Before starting my degree, I began tutoring part-time and have since helped children of a range of ages and abilities achieve similar academic excellence. I specialise in entrance to the UK's top schools, and have tutored students towards 7+, 8+, 11+ and Common Entrance to Westminster, St. Paul's and King's College to name a few. I am also interested in preparing students for Oxbridge entrance, and look to develop a student's passion for subjects beyond the syllabus not only immediately preceding their application, but in the years prior. I wish to help as many students as possible reach their desired academic goals and hugely enjoy transferring my own knowledge to my young protégées. ...
I am currently at King's College London, studying for a Masters degree in War Studies. Previously, I studied Classics for 4 years at the University of St Andrews, specialising in Roman Comedy and the Greek symposium. I attended Haileybury & Imperial Service College, a coeducational independent school in Hertfordshire, from the age of 11 through to 18, achieving a school record in the 11+ entrance exam. ...
I am a current graduate student based in London, studying Sustainable Urban Planning & Design. I received my bachelor's in Social Anthropology (with a minor in Environmental Science & Public Policy) from Harvard University in 2015. While at Harvard, I wrote for The Harvard Crimson and The Huffington Post, as well as a variety of other publications. I also conducted research on transportation policy in São Paulo, Brazil for Harvard's Graduate School of Design. I have worked in consulting in New York City, and in the public sector in Stockholm, Sweden.

I have tutored a wide variety of students, from college applicants to high school students in Boston to refugees in Stockholm. I specialize in English tutoring and writing assistance, but have familiarity with all subjects. I speak five languages: Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, French, and of course, English. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and am a dual Swedish-American citizen. ...
I am a future trainee solicitor at Linklaters LLP and am about to commence studying for my LPC professional qualification.

I am a current graduate student, attending the Courtauld Institute of Art where I study German Modernism. I specialise in US exam preparation, reading comprehension, Art History, English (writing and literature), History, and French language. I have benefitted from one-on-one tutoring throughout my education in order to prepare for standardized tests (ISEE/SSAT, SAT/ACT, GRE), which helped me build confidence and was a huge factor in my success. Having grown up in Manhattan and having attended boarding school and university in the US, I am intimately acquainted with the American educational system and the testing and admissions processes for US high schools and universities. Because of my background, I am well equipped to provide admission advice and counselling.

In New York, I attended a private, all-girls school, Convent of the Sacred Heart, before continuing my education at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut. At Choate, I took many Advanced Placement and honors courses. I achieved a 35 (of 36) on my ACT and attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where I double-majored in Art History and French. Before beginning my graduate studies this September, in order to improve my German, I attended the Middlebury College Intensive Summer Language Program in Middlebury, Vermont, an 8 week, immersive program where all classes and socializing are conducted in German.

After I graduated from Vanderbilt in 2018 while applying to graduate school, I worked with Curator Stephen Brown and Chief Curator Darsie Alexander at the Jewish Museum in New York City where I wrote exhibition texts, proposals, and theses, researched and conceptualised upcoming exhibitions, and conducted primary source research, translation, and transcription in French and German. This past year, I also worked at the Rubin Museum of Art, a Himalayan and Buddhist art museum, in the Programming Department under Head of Programs and Engagement, Tim McHenry, and Head of Programs, Dawn Eshelman, where I focused on lecture, meditation, and performance series. I conceptualised and created my own program that occurred on Slow Art Day in April 2019, consisting of activities to foster deeper examination of specific artworks over three one-hour long periods. ...

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. ...
