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.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Tom as a tutor." ... See Tom Johnson's tutoring profile.

A-Level Biology (OCR) | William Bennett

"This student started A-Level Biology (OCR) tutoring with me in her Lower 6th year. She was working at the A/B grade boundary and looking for tutoring to solidify her understanding and push her safely into the A boundary. Her grades have shown constant improvement, reaching an A* on her most recent end of topic test on the kidneys. We are focusing on applying her knowledge to exam questions as she approaches mocks after Christmas." ... See William Bennett's tutoring profile.

Online GCSE Biology & Chemistry During Lockdown | Nicolas Pimpare

"I was originally hiring Nico to come on holiday with us and make sure my daughter who has GCSE next year would be kept on track to revise for her final year exams. He ended-up following her and guiding her with Zoom calls [due to the COVID19 pandemic]. Nico was absolutely charming and kept me informed of her progress and her attitude towards her study. He made it very easy, very pleasant and I would not hesitate to have him again." ... See Nicolas Pimpare's tutoring profile.

Chemistry Colleague | Barnaby Martin

"Barnaby represents the epitome of excellence in the classroom. He brings a phenomenal amount energy and enthusiasm for science to all lessons, which made him one of the most popular teachers within our strong academic department at St Paul's School in London. Barnaby is adept at challenging the brightest of students as well as nurturing and helping students who find chemistry more challenging to improve and achieve their goals. Any student who finds himself or herself taught by Barnaby Martin will be very lucky indeed!" ... See Barnaby Martin's tutoring profile.

I have just returned to the UK after 20 months in New Delhi, India, where I was working as an Education Consultant and teaching the SAT and ACT. I gained my undergraduate degree from Cambridge University, and have over three years experience teaching students from Primary age up to GCSE. I am open to residential positions and roles involving travel. I love to engage my pupils in extra-curricular activities such as sports, arts and crafts, trips and days out, and educational visits. ...
I am a current graduate student based in London, studying Sustainable Urban Planning & Design. I received my bachelor's in Social Anthropology (with a minor in Environmental Science & Public Policy) from Harvard University in 2015. While at Harvard, I wrote for The Harvard Crimson and The Huffington Post, as well as a variety of other publications. I also conducted research on transportation policy in São Paulo, Brazil for Harvard's Graduate School of Design. I have worked in consulting in New York City, and in the public sector in Stockholm, Sweden.

I have tutored a wide variety of students, from college applicants to high school students in Boston to refugees in Stockholm. I specialize in English tutoring and writing assistance, but have familiarity with all subjects. I speak five languages: Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, French, and of course, English. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and am a dual Swedish-American citizen. ...
Caitlin is currently in her final year of Kings college London Graduate medical school. She has been working for Wentworth since 2015 focusing on US school and college admissions.

I graduated from Trinity College, University of Cambridge, with an MSc in Chemistry (first class) and a BA in Natural Sciences (first class, ranked 4th/102). Through studying Natural Sciences, I read Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Cell biology in my first year; Maths and Chemistry in my second year; and pure Chemistry thereafter. As an undergraduate, I worked in research groups at the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and at Harvard University and co-authored papers published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry and in Nature.

Prior to my undergraduate studies, I was a recipient of the Ogden Trust Physical Sciences Scholarship for students from financial disadvantaged backgrounds at the Portsmouth Grammar School, where I attained the highest grades in my year, with 5 A*s at A-level (top 0.1% nationally). My prior education was at a local state comprehensive school.

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. ...
