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).

I grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.

Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. I've worked with students of all abilities, with the bulk of my experience tutoring Maths and Physics at A-level and GCSE standard. I also tutor Biology and Chemistry, drawing on the past two years I have spent studying Medicine. Studying Medicine has enhanced my tutoring ability, as we spend a considerable amount of time developing our communication skills. ...

I am currently studying for a Master's degree in Psychology at UCL, having already graduated with a 2:1 in Natural Sciences at Nottingham University where I specialised in Chemistry, Biology and Psychology. As part of my undergraduate degree I tutored GCSE and A-level students in Maths, Biology and Chemistry.

Between the ages of 11 and 18, I attended Manchester Grammar School where I achieved 7A* grades at GCSE and AAB at A-level. This experience has given me a very strong understanding, not only of the relevant exam specifications, but also what exactly is needed for students to achieve the top grades and go on to thrive at Russell Group universities. I am very grateful for the teachers and role models I have had, and I am very happy that I can contribute in a similar way. ...

I have worked with a diverse mix of students: from age 10-18 with wide ranging ambitions, in the classroom, on a one-to-one basis, and outdoors. ...

I have since worked at Eton College in the History department and (more recently) as the College's Filmmaker-in-Residence.

At Eton, I was part of a 3 person team working with History Oxbridge applicants three times a week, advising on every step of the admissions process. This has included advice on personal statements, marking History Aptitude Tests, and carrying out mock-Oxbridge interviews for both the Eton students and applicants from other schools.

I have also worked on the Eton Universities Summer School for the last four years running, teaching history and working as a tutor. ...

Samantha Noh Private Tutor in Central London
Originally from Seoul, Korea, I moved to the US to attend Milton Academy. After graduating cum laude from Milton, I attended Harvard University, where I studied Anthropology with a focus on Archaeology and graduated Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude, and High Honors. After working in New York for two years, I moved to London for a graduate degree in Cultural Heritage Studies at UCL. I am currently working in London.

My personal experience with numerous entrance exams (SSAT, SAT, SAT Subject, AP) and admissions applications (prep school, university) has provided me with insight into successful study skills and applications. To share these insights and help students prepare for their next big step - whether it's improving marks on a particular subject or editing a university personal essay - I have always sought to tutor or teach alongside my studies and work. I look forward to meeting new students through Wentworth Tutors and helping them build the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to be best prepared for the next stage in their academic careers. ...
