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).

Cecilia March – Private Tutor in London
I am a current graduate student, attending the Courtauld Institute of Art where I study German Modernism. I specialise in US exam preparation, reading comprehension, Art History, English (writing and literature), History, and French language. I have benefitted from one-on-one tutoring throughout my education in order to prepare for standardized tests (ISEE/SSAT, SAT/ACT, GRE), which helped me build confidence and was a huge factor in my success. Having grown up in Manhattan and having attended boarding school and university in the US, I am intimately acquainted with the American educational system and the testing and admissions processes for US high schools and universities. Because of my background, I am well equipped to provide admission advice and counselling.
In New York, I attended a private, all-girls school, Convent of the Sacred Heart, before continuing my education at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut. At Choate, I took many Advanced Placement and honors courses. I achieved a 35 (of 36) on my ACT and attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where I double-majored in Art History and French. Before beginning my graduate studies this September, in order to improve my German, I attended the Middlebury College Intensive Summer Language Program in Middlebury, Vermont, an 8 week, immersive program where all classes and socializing are conducted in German.
After I graduated from Vanderbilt in 2018 while applying to graduate school, I worked with Curator Stephen Brown and Chief Curator Darsie Alexander at the Jewish Museum in New York City where I wrote exhibition texts, proposals, and theses, researched and conceptualised upcoming exhibitions, and conducted primary source research, translation, and transcription in French and German. This past year, I also worked at the Rubin Museum of Art, a Himalayan and Buddhist art museum, in the Programming Department under Head of Programs and Engagement, Tim McHenry, and Head of Programs, Dawn Eshelman, where I focused on lecture, meditation, and performance series. I conceptualised and created my own program that occurred on Slow Art Day in April 2019, consisting of activities to foster deeper examination of specific artworks over three one-hour long periods. ...
