Music Theory Tutoring with Wentworth Education

Many of the students that we teach at Wentworth Education are also highly talented young musicians. Learning how to play an instrument is one of the most common extra-curricular pastimes and a source of joy for many children. As they progress through the grades and begin to perform in orchestras and other ensembles they will gradually encounter much of the canonical works of classical music. Naturally, many such students become curious about the process of composition and often attempt to write music of their own. For these creative minds Wentworth Education is proud to offer some of the finest guidance available. We have specialist music tutors who studied composition at first rate conservatoires, Oxford, Cambridge, Trinity College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music.

Teaching children to understand the theoretical foundations of the music they play helps them bridge the gap between extra-curricular interests and academic work. Often music theory lessons can provide a student with the first signs that, if they wish to, their love for music may be turned towards a degree or even a career. Our tutors are all excellent sources of inspiration for anyone who is considering taking their knowledge of music theory to the next level or just starting out.

We offer tuition in ABRSM Music Theory, grades 1-8 and the Trinity School of Music Theory exams, grades 1-8.

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 achieving straight A*s at GCSE and A-level, I graduated from UCL with a First Class Honours Degree specialising in economics, psychology, neuroscience, French and geography.

Since then, I have focussed all of my energy on engaging with education in as many ways possible: I have become a guest lecturer at UCL (on an undergraduate course), a teacher at a secondary school in London, and an education consultant to the Times Educational Supplement (TES). I am also lucky enough to have been asked to have a role on the Board of Directors for World Education Connection, an initiative that connects thousands of students from the USA and Tanzania using technology each year.

I am currently undertaking a Master's in Education, whilst being a full-time teacher and professional musician. ...
I graduated last year with a 1st in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. My experience as a tutor extends across different levels and subjects, from teaching English as a foreign language to 11+ exams, and university entrance preparation. Throughout the years, I have worked with students on a wide range of curriculums to hone their skills and expand not only their knowledge, but also their interest and love for the subject. Having won a bursary to attend Wellington College in 2011, I studied the IB, and was one of the very few students in the world to achieve a maximum of 45 points. Some of the distinctions I was awarded for my academic performances include the Gavin Ewart Poetry Prize, the Verrall English Prize, the Music Essay Prize, and the Lady Emma Talbot Special Prize. I went on to earn a place at Oxford University where I read BA Honours in English Language and Literature. Following my Distinction in Prelims, I was awarded the Casberd Scholarship for outstanding results. ...
I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2014 with a 1st class degree in English literature and Philosophy. During my degree, I spent a year studying at the University of California, Berkeley, which has given me an extensive understanding of the US college academic system. I have been teaching for the past 4 years, both privately - with a specialisation in English literature and language 11+ to A level, and in the non-profit sector, working as an academic support worker for the educational charity Into University. Most recently, I spent 2 years living in Mexico, teaching English to all ages, both privately and in a classroom setting. All of these experiences have given me a detailed understanding of the unique learning dynamics of different students, aged 5 to 50! I enjoy tutoring immensely, tailoring lessons to my students' interests, defining learning goals together helping to realise them, and making the learning process as enjoyable as possible. ...
I am a future trainee solicitor at Linklaters LLP and am about to commence studying for my LPC professional qualification. I have a First Class degree from Oxford in Classics (Literae Humaniores), 3 A*s (English Literature, Latin, Ancient Greek) and 1 A (History) at A level, and 12 A*s at GCSE. This year I have been tutoring students for Latin and Ancient Greek A levels, and also offer tutoring in English Literature and History A levels, and most subjects at GCSE (available on request). ...
