Why Study Languages?

Language Tutoring at with Wentworth Education

English speakers often overlook the importance of studying other languages. The ability to speak multiple languages is in fact a highly sought after skill. In an increasingly globalised world, languages students are among the most employable university graduates!

Beyond finding a job, learning another language can provide you with lifelong opportunities. It allows you to develop the skills needed to study, work and live abroad. You also get the opportunity to learn about and immerse yourself in other cultures.

Knowledge of another language can transform your travel experiences. You can discover the art, music, literature, film and food of another country; meet new people and develop life-long friendships around the world.

Studying languages can also help build confidence and, according to new research, even improve brain function!

11+ English | Elisa Mitrofan

" “Elisa didn't work with our son Oscar for a long period, however, she achieved great results in a short space of time. She quickly picked up where the previous tutor had laid off. She built a great rapport with him during the very first session and understood immediately why we were tutoring. Our goals were to increase confidence and encourage Oscar to challenge himself, rather than coasting through. He attends an excellent state primary, however, we just felt that some one to one attention would be a huge benefit. Elisa used Oscar's love of reading to inspire him and helped him to organise his thoughts when transferring them on to paper. She was careful not to overwhelm, but definitely hit these targets. We were always left with a sensible amount of homework and this clearly complimented the lesson that had just taken place. Elisa also suggested books that he might like to read and made the vocab tasks a lot of fun. Oscar always looked forward to his tutoring sessions, a true indication of Elisa's skills and enthusiasm! I would thoroughly recommend Elisa and can't thank her enough!” " ... See Elisa Mitrofan's tutoring profile.

I am a Cambridge University graduate, with experience tutoring a broad range of subjects. Before starting a career in Management Consulting, I studied Education with English and Drama (BA Hons, 1st Class), and am passionate about understanding how my students tick, finding ways of engaging them, and helping them achieve their goals.

I started tutoring at the age of 18, in Manchester where I grew up. I helped family friends through their 11+ exams, Spanish/English/Music GCSEs (As and A*s achieved). After University, I moved to Madrid for a year, where I tutored English, while studying to achieve the Instituto Cervantes DELE C1 qualification, giving me Undergraduate Degree level Spanish. ...
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 am a friendly, encouraging teacher with over a decade's experience, particularly with students aged 11-13. Since graduating from Cambridge 13 years ago I have taught students of all sorts of abilities and ages (5-58) anywhere from Notting Hill to Nairobi. My curiosity about the world has drawn me to journalism as well as teaching. I worked at the Telegraph for two years and now I write about arts and culture for The Economist’s 1843, The Spectator and Apollo magazines. I am also the co-author of 'What on Earth is Going On? A Crash Course in Current Affairs' (HarperCollins, 2009 - Sunday Times 'Stocking Filler of the Year'). Both my teaching and writing are informed by a desire to understand the world, and to help others do so too. ...
I have a first class degree in French and Latin from University College London, with Dean's List honours. This involved a year teaching English as a foreign language in two schools in Nantes, France. Before university I attended Brighton College with a top academic scholarship, where I achieved A levels in French, Latin, English and History. I enjoy teaching languages at all levels from beginner to degree level. I particularly enjoy literary analysis and theory. As a tutor I tailor lessons to the particular goals and needs of the student, and often learn a great deal from my students about their particular passions. When not tutoring I am a detective in the Met Police. ...
I have been teaching since the age of eighteen when I worked as a classroom assistant at Guildford High School for six months. I then worked at the European School of Brussels while working as an au pair. While studying French and English at Oxford I continued tutoring a range of subjects during the vac. After graduating in 2016 I spent a year working on a research project in South Africa investigating highly vulnerable teens to inform public health policy. Since September 2017 I have been tutoring full-time. I am now living in Clapham, and particularly specialise in French tuition all the way from the age of 7 to undergraduate level. I also have extensive experience tutoring Maths, English and Spanish, as well as a variety of other subjects to GCSE level. In October 2018 I will be taking up a full-time position as a Business Analyst at Mckinsey & Co. ...
My name is Josephine and I am currently completing my Masters degree in History of Architecture at the UCL Faculty of the Built Environment (MA), The Bartlett; prior to which I studied History of Art at the University of Cambridge (BA): 2:1. During my undergraduate degree at Cambridge University I received a grant to spend six months in Mexico City researching Mexican architectural modernism and the development of the urban landscape, working towards an undergraduate thesis that I am currently extending at a postgraduate level. During this time I worked closely with the university of Mexico in their archives department.

I attended a comprehensive secondary school in north London, and achieved straight A* - A qualifications in both my GCSE and A Levels. For the latter I studied History of Art, English and History, and received full marks on both my final History and English A Level exams. My specialities lie in urban, social and aesthetic history, philosophy and socio-economic and socio-political critical theory. I am fluent in all humanities and social science subjects. I have ambitions of becoming an academic, and hope to impart this passion and enthusiasm onto the students I teach, despite any lack of confidence they may have.

I have extensive experience working with children, having worked as an au pair in Madrid, Spain between my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, and as a regular childminder for a family in central London. ...
After finishing two degrees from Stanford and Kingston Universities (covering a range of topics from philosophy of religion and mathematics to critical theory) I am now preparing to teach philosophy in prisons and studying to become a psychoanalyst. ...
Prior to studying a degree in Anthropology at Cambridge (BA Hons 2:1), I went to Oakham School where I studied an eclectic mix of A-levels (History, Geography, Biology and Fine Art), and achieved top grades in all four subjects. This range of subjects, and the degree that followed, reflect my interest in people and why we behave as we do. Indeed I am continuing to pursue this interest, and am currently studying an MSc in Psychology at the University of Surrey.

Before studying at Surrey, I worked in the advertising industry (J Walter Thompson) and for a behavioural consultancy as a Project Manager. Whilst on the graduate scheme at J Walter Thompson, I won the Chrissie Barker award for Top Graduate in my year, achieved a Distinction in my IPA (Institute for Practitioners of Advertising) Foundation Award, and completed the IPA Effectiveness, and Legislation and Regulation awards. I also spent a month working and travelling in Japan, which was utterly fascinating.

Throughout my professional career I built a reputation as someone people turned to for support and I enjoyed helping develop new starters. I also have a wealth of insight when it comes to CV’s, personal statements and interview techniques – all of which are front of mind for me having just applied to university again myself. ...
I was brought up in Paris and moved to London to study at Imperial College, where I obtained a Bachelor’s and Master's degree in Theoretical Physics with High First Class honours. My research focused on the way in which alternative logic systems can help us bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and relativity. I was awarded Associateship of the Royal College of Science.

Although I am a science specialist, I also have a strong background in English and Verbal Reasoning. I sat the GRE in 2016 for entrance to US Grad School and got exceptionally good grades (Verbal Reasoning - 99th percentile, Analytical Writing - 93rd percentile).

Since 2011, I have offered private tuition for all major examination boards as well as working for the Imperial College summer schools. ...
I graduated from Cambridge University (Newnham College) with a 2:1 in Social Anthropology (and a 1st in Development Studies) in 2009. I have been tutoring private clients since 2005 in subjects ranging from English, Maths, English as foreign language, Interview Technique and Preparation, Test & Exam Preparation and Mentoring. However, my current focus and speciality is tutoring students for all levels of the ISEE and SSAT test as well as tutoring the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. As a child, I attended the Chinese International School in Hong Kong and Alice Smith International School in Kuala Lumpur and then boarded at school in the UK as an overseas student. As a consequence, I particularly enjoy working with students based in Asia applying to international schools and preparing them for the cultural and curriculum adjustment of becoming an overseas student. I am now based in Singapore and tutor students of all ages here and in Hong Kong primarily. I have an excellent track record of increasing test scores and helping tutees to have the confidence and ability to achieve the grades required for their desired schools whilst also acting as a mentor throughout the preparation process. ...
