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.

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. " ...

I recently graduated from Oxford University with a first class degree in English Language and Literature. Before that I attended Eton College on a full bursary, where I was awarded an Oppidan Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement. I left Eton with three A*'s and an A at A Level.

My passion for teaching started when in my penultimate year at school I volunteered at a local special educational needs school. I found it immensely rewarding to instill in my students an enthusiasm for learning that led to understanding and success.

My educational background means that I have a thorough knowledge of the private educational sector in the UK, from scholarship exams, to writing personal statements, all the way through to preparing for decisive Oxbridge interviews.

My teaching experience has helped me become a non-judgemental, patient tutor, who understands that making learning enjoyable is key to anyone's academic success. ...
I graduated from Durham University in 2012 with a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biology and Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I moved to London to begin work as a Medical Writer. This involved writing a variety of medical papers for the pharmaceutical industry for new, or developing, medical drugs.

In 2015 I made the change into teaching. I undertook my teaching degree at Goldsmith's University and specialised in Secondary Science. I am now a professional Science teacher based in South East London, teaching pupils aged 11-18 Chemistry, Biology and Physics to GCSE and Biology A-level. I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and am passionate about helping young people to understand and enjoy science. I encourage pupils to think on their own, scaffolding their learning and slowly taking away training wheels so they have the confidence and self-belief to make progress on their own. Tutoring allows me to have for the 1-1 teaching contact that young people so often need in order to reach their potential. ...

After finishing high school I joined the Estonian National committees of physics and mathematics olympiad and I have been tutoring current high school students for international olympiads in the training camps. ...
I have taught at 3 major UK boarding schools: Eton College (current); Harrow School and St Edward's School, Oxford. I have also taught in the state sector, and therefore have experience working with students of all abilities. I have over 10 years of experience as a private tutor.

I have a degree in PPE for the University of Oxford, and a PGCE in Mathematics. I have 7 A Levels (all A grade) including Mathematics and Further Mathematics, which enables me to teach a broad range of subjects and give a balanced perspective.

My tutoring philosophy: It is essential for the student to spend as much time as possible thinking and answering questions during tutorials. A good tutor will ask the right questions at the right time to allow the student to make connections. I provide them with the necessary structure and careful prompts to guide them towards better understanding.

I am passionate about giving young people opportunities to improve. I love seeing students experience "lightbulb moments". I have taught all of my adult life in some of the best schools in the world.

I am a very keen sportsman. I have represented Wales at hockey and earned multiple Oxford Blues whilst at university. I also enjoy playing the piano to relax. ...
