Religious Studies Tutoring at Wentworth Education

Wentworth Education has several team members who have studied Theology and Religious Studies at either Oxford or Cambridge and are excellently equipped to help you tackle the challenging questions that studying religion so often presents.

Food for thought... We love the big questions

‘Truth, in matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived' (Wilde). This is one of our favourite quotations because it leads you to question the meaning of 'truth’. If 'truth' is, as some post-modernists have suggested, merely a societal construct, then can theologians ever claim to know anything of value? What is the point then, you may ask?

But for those of you who have decided to study Religious Studies or Philosophy at GCSE or A level, you’ll already know that studying religion isn’t about trying to provide true and false answers. Value is not found in 'correctness', but instead in its ability to shed a glimmer of possibility that things may exist differently from the way we originally supposed. Tutors at Wentworth relish the way Religious Studies strives to find answers while at the same time knowing the answers can never be found, simply because we might learn something from the striving.

Religious Studies Exam Preparation

Our Religious Education tutors can teach geography to all levels and abilities, from primary through to senior / high school. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.

GCSE Religious Studies Tutoring

As part of the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy it is now a requirement of all Religious Studies GCSEs to cover at least two world religions. Students are often relatively familiar with one religion. However, this change is syllabus has meant that often students are overwhelmed by the technical terminology that they are required to learn for the GCSE exam. Moreover, teachers now find themselves overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of material there is to cover in just two years.

We help our GCSE students by going through the syllabus that they are taking and making sure that their knowledge on every area of the two world religions is crystal clear. We then help our GCSE students with exam essay writing technique. In particular we focus on the longer ‘discussion’ style questions which require more of an argument focused approach.

A Level Religious Studies Tutoring

It is worth being aware that many schools call the A level course ‘Philosophy’ when really they teaching a ‘Religious Studies’ A level course. While there is of course overlap between the two (especially when it comes to ethics and philosophy of religion) they are two separate A levels, so be clear as to which papers you are actually taking.

When it comes to A level preparation, the sheer quantity of knowledge that students are expected to assimilate during the revision time is often very daunting. On top of this, the number of questions that they have to answer in the exam means that they are often run out of time to complete all the questions. Therefore, the key to doing well at A level is to make sure that frequently revisit old topics so that the material left to revise over the Easter holidays of your final year isn’t completely overwhelming. Moreover, it is absolutely essential to have a very precise idea of the essay structure that you are going to use of each ‘style‘ of exam question. Because of the time constraints, essay technique is more important in Religious Studies than it is in perhaps any other humanities A level. Therefore, we specialise in helping our students unpick confusing ideas, and make sure that their essay technique is stronger than it has ever been before.

I am an outgoing tutor with an enthusiasm to help students engage with and enjoy their education. I value learning as a way of coming to understand the world and what is going on around you!

My A-Levels helped me to shape a way of thinking that then led to my degree in Anthropology at UCL, for which I received a 1st. This was one of the most exciting and stimulating decisions I made, and I thoroughly enjoyed each moment of my course.

I am confident in teaching a broad base of humanities and languages, and hope to have the chance to inspire some students in doing so! ...
I was born and raised in the United Kingdom and won an academic scholarship to Sherborne School at the age of 13. When I was 16 years old my family relocated to the United States, so I completed my secondary education at a competitive high school in the Houston area. After quickly adjusting to the American system, I achieved excellent results in my AP exams and SAT tests and received a place in the prestigious Plan II Honours program at the University of Texas at Austin. I graduated a year early with high honours, a second major in History, and an undergraduate dissertation that was awarded special honours. I have years of experience tutoring for the SAT and ACT exams and experience teaching the American public school curriculum in the humanities. I specialize in preparing international students wishing to attend university in the United States. ...
I am a Medieval and Renaissance literary historian. I have a BA in Philosophy (cum laude), a PhD in English Literature, a master's in Classics from the University of Oxford, for which I was awarded the top distinction in my year, and recently held an AHRC-funded postdoc on the History Faculty at the University of Cambridge (2019-2020) to explore how cultures remembered and forgot the European religious reformations in the early modern period. An American and British citizen, I have academic and cultural experience on both sides of the Atlantic. As a teenager I also lived a few years in Sofia, Bulgaria, attending an exceptional school in Eastern Europe that offered the IB Diploma. My interdisciplinary academic background and training means I am competent to teach at the crossroads of a number of disciplines. I am enthusiastic about motivating all kinds of people of all ages to pursue knowledge. My greatest piece of advice to students is to help them see that enjoying study is the best way to mature and flourish intellectually. ...
I was educated at Reigate Grammar School in Surrey and went on to read Philosophy and Theology at Oriel College, Oxford. At Oxford I was able to study a broad array of papers ranging from Metaphysics to Ecclesiastical History, and attained the top mark across the entirety of the Philosophy Faculty in the Aristotelian Ethics finals paper. I began my teaching career in a one-year post as a Graduate Assistant at St Edward’s School, Oxford, before moving to Ardingly College, where I completed a PGCE through Buckingham University. I have been a teacher at Tonbridge School since 2015, where I have held a diverse range of sporting and pastoral responsibilities, including being Assistant Housemaster of a boys’ boarding house. Currently I am halfway through a part-time MA in Philosophy at Birkbeck, University of London. ...
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 am a home-schooling specialist and trained teacher, with a Cambridge first-class degree and experience working at a top UK boarding school. Having taught classes of students of wide-ranging abilities, I am aware of the importance of catering for the specific needs of individuals; this is what primarily draws me to tutoring. There is nothing more satisfying than having the time to sit and work through the challenges that a particular student is facing, one-to-one. As a teacher, I know the value that this can add to both their achievement and also their enjoyment of schoolwork. So often seemingly overwhelming problems are born of a simple misunderstanding which can be quickly ironed out within individual tutor time, and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the individual learning styles and interests of my students. ...
I graduated from St. John's College, Cambridge in 2016 with a first class degree in History of Art and an MPhil in Early 20th Century British Modernist Painting. I was born and live in London and attended Westminster Under School and Eton College, two of the country's most prestigious and competitive private schools. ...

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. ...
