Our Tutor Guarantee to Parents
Our select tutors have demonstrated a passion for teaching either by choosing it as a profession or entering a profession that demands an extensive high level of teaching (postgraduate education, medicine, and music education). The majority of our tutors are Oxford and Cambridge educated and have considerable experience in the subject area that they teach. All of our tutors have been vetted with the relevant documentation and have passed a 1-on-1 interview with one of our Head Tutors. See below for some short profiles of a few of our tutors and our tutor guarantee to you.
- We Know Them Personally: We personally know all of our tutors and can personally vouch for their commitment, enthusiasm, professionalism and expertise. This means, unlike other agencies, we have personally assessed each of our tutor's teaching abilities. We can therefore hand pick which tutors we believe will be the best fit for you and your child and which ones will be the best tutors to help your child achieve their particular goals. We never mass-market email your request out to all our tutors.
- Great Academics: All our tutors have attended world-class universities including Oxford and Cambridge and have always achieved top grades through their whole academic and/or professional careers. Nonetheless, our tutors aren't stuck in an intellectual ivory tower, they know what it's like at the coal face and understand how to help their students learn.
- Extensive Teaching Experience: Many of our tutors are full time or retired teachers from Britain's top schools; our teachers really are second to none and bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the tutoring-table. Our tutors who aren't qualified teachers have all been tutors for years and have a proven track record.
- Highly Selective: To become a tutor with Wentworth Education you don't just need to have a excellent academics and extensive teaching experience. Once potential tutors apply with a CV and cover letter they need to pass our rigorous selection process. We reject well over 90% of all tutors who apply to us. Tutors must have two references (one teaching specific, one academic) and pass a 1-on-1 interview with our Head Tutor, where they need to teach us a mock lesson.
- Supportive & Collaborative: We stay in regular contact with our tutors and clients and check-in with them every month to make sure everything is going well and if there's anything we can do to help. Our tutors also keep you and their students up to speed and will provide you with regular feedback (like a school report card).
- Always Looking To Improve: We support our professional tutors, providing educational improvement opportunities and always ask our clients for extensive feedback - so we can be better.
- DBS Check & Right To Work: All our tutors have the necessary DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) documentation and have the legal right to work in the UK as a sole trader (it is impotant to check this when using a tutor - most foreign students can't legally be self employed tutors).

Helena Wells – Private Tutor in London
Prior to studying a degree in Anthropology at Cambridge (BA Hons 2:1), I went to Oakham School where I studied an eclectic mix of A-levels (History, Geography, Biology and Fine Art), and achieved top grades in all four subjects. This range of subjects, and the degree that followed, reflect my interest in people and why we behave as we do. Indeed I am continuing to pursue this interest, and am currently studying an MSc in Psychology at the University of Surrey.
Before studying at Surrey, I worked in the advertising industry (J Walter Thompson) and for a behavioural consultancy as a Project Manager. Whilst on the graduate scheme at J Walter Thompson, I won the Chrissie Barker award for Top Graduate in my year, achieved a Distinction in my IPA (Institute for Practitioners of Advertising) Foundation Award, and completed the IPA Effectiveness, and Legislation and Regulation awards. I also spent a month working and travelling in Japan, which was utterly fascinating.
Throughout my professional career I built a reputation as someone people turned to for support and I enjoyed helping develop new starters. I also have a wealth of insight when it comes to CV’s, personal statements and interview techniques – all of which are front of mind for me having just applied to university again myself. ...
