We are a bespoke provider of private tutoring in the greater London area and beyond.
Our goal is to find the right tutor for each student to foster academic excellence and critical intellectual curiosity. Our tutors are world-class educators from Oxford, Cambridge, and similar high-calibre institutions.
We offer a full range of subject tuition and preparation for UK and US schools and universities. We pride ourselves on excellence in science and mathematics tuition and American (SATs, ACT, and ISEE) and English entrance exams.
Academic excellence is the cornerstone of Wentworth Tutors. We operate under a simple objective: that we find the right tutors to teach our students to an exceptional standard. We pride ourselves in helping our students improve their academic results... Continue reading about our philosophy in this letter to parents from our Head Tutor.
Wentworth Tutors is one of London's most prestigious tutoring agencies. Read more about our tutors, or simply give us a call! We would love to discuss your particular ambitions and how we can help you achive your goals.
We can teach all subjects for all ages. We truly excel in mathematics and the sciences, but we love a challenge and have been asked to tutor everything from the Rubik's cube to McKinsey interview tests. So please contact us if you have an unusual request.
We regularly prepare students for all UK school exams: 11+, 13+, Common Entrance, Scholarship, GCSE, AS, A level, Pre-Us and some of the worlds most challenging maths exams (STEP and IMO). We also specialise in the US syllabus and standardised tests: ISEE & SSAT, SAT I, ACT, SAT II, etc.
Our network of tutors is truly invaluable and what sets us apart from other agencies. We only accept the best. All our tutors attended world class universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. Many are qualified teachers, teaching in some of London's top schools, such as Westminster and St Pauls. We closely interview all of our tutors and our founders can personally vouch for all of them as superb role models.
Our tutors are high achievers and all have plenty of experience in the subjects and exams that they teach. But we make sure they balance fun and engagement with targetted and focussed work to ensure their students cover the syllabus and achieve their goals in a stimulating way.
Private Home Tutors
Most of our private or home tutors are based in London and they usually tutor face to face at their students home address (all across Greater London). However, we also provide group classes and Skype-based lessons.
First our Head Tutor will discuss your particular needs, often face to face. Once we understand exactly what you need we will offer to introduce you to a selection of our best tutors, and send you their profiles. We always stay in contact with you and your tutor to ensure everything is progressing smoothly and provide you with detailed feedback (like a school subject report) at the end of each month.
Problem of The Month
Imagine that you live in a 4D world. You are asked to make a wire model of the 4D cube (called hypercube) of size 10x10x10x10 cm. How much wire is needed? Wire is only used to make one-dimensional edges of the hypercube.
Wentworth Tutors in the News
Katherine Wiles Speaks in TedX ASL
Katherine, our Head Tutor and one of our founders recently spoke in the American School of London's TedX Talk. Katherine adressed everyone's nightmare interview question: "Describe a time you faced adversity and how you dealt with it." There are many variants of this question, "Describe a time you failed," "Describe a time you took a risk," and so on, but they're all assessing the same ideas.
Katherine diagnoses the question and explains what it's asking, why interviewers ask it and how to think about answering it. She also dives into some case studies from British and American History and Bob, the naughty schoolboy. So if you're a Junior or a Senior in High School preparing for college interviews, applying for your first job in the milkround, or even an experienced interviewer, we hope you'll enjoy listening to and learn something from Katherine's talk.
