Our Science Tutors

Wentworth Education originated from a group of tutors who studied maths and natural sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge (UK). We take great pride in the ability and the calibre of our science tutors. They all studied the sciences or mathematics at university and many are PhD students and supervisors at top tier universities. They employ the supervision style system to give one-to-one instruction in the most rigorous, efficient and thorough way. Our tutors not only help their students develop the study skills to internalise laws and facts, but also work to instil an understanding of the underlying science. We find that with this combination, students discover that science is fun, rewarding, and tractable.

The majority of our tutors teach all of the sciences up to A Level / high school level. However with our broad reach of high flying scientists and PhD students we can also provide highly specialised and very experienced tutors for any particular topic or subject. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.

For our younger scientists, our tutors provide the perfect balance of education and enjoyment. For example, a human circuit powered by M&Ms can help explain the flow of electrons through resistors. We combine fun activities like this with some basic scientific theory and problem solving to introduce budding young scientist to the natural world.

Science Tutoring At All Levels

We offer tutoring in all of the sciences at all levels and for all ability levels. Simply contact us for a consultation, or follow the links below to read more about what we offer.

Physics

Whether explaining rotational momentum using the movement of an ice skater or coming up with visual representations to help students grasp vectors, our tutors are experts at breaking down concepts for students.

Chemistry

Our chemistry tutors are experts at explaining the complexities of this subject which can be one of the most conceptually challenging that a student encounters.

Biology

Much like the world around us, biology can seem a vast and incomprehensible subject; our tutors help students to distill the important facts and concepts.

Computer Science

We can teach computer science from school to university level and can help with everything from the fundamental principles of computer science to algorithms and how the internet works.

If you have a special request please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs. We can connect you with specialists in any scientific field, from Medecine to General Relativity.

Early Years/ Educational Play/ Pre-school prep/ Literacy/ Numeracy/ Science | Chloe Myerson

"“A few months before he started school, Vafa was struggling with reading and counting, and had many issues with confidence and behaviour because of this. We engaged Chloë to work with him on the basis of her strong reputation and experience. Chloë helped him hugely - he found confidence and was able to make a very strong start at school, impressing his teachers with his advanced skills. Through educational play, Chloë was able to bring out his natural talent and creativity. Unfortunately, Chloë had to work abroad for a few months. But upon her return we immediately re-engaged her services as Vafa’s permanent tutor - no other tutor was able to cope with Vafa’s exuberant energy and transform it into academic success. She continued working with him for two more years and was consistently charming and punctual. I would have no hesitation in reccomending her wholeheartedly.” Vafa is now successfully studying at the prestigious Trevor-Roberts Preparatory School in Hampstead. " ...
