Our Approach To Teaching Mathematics

We LOVE maths at Wentworth Tutors. We love studying maths, sharing maths puzzles, and teaching maths, but most of all we love to see students begin to share our enthusiasm and passion for the subject. Mathematics is the subject that we are asked to tutor most often, and one of the subjects that we take particular pride in teaching. We know how daunting maths can be, and we take great care to ensure that a blend of student-tutor chemistry, reassurance, support, and excellent teaching all help even the most mathematically disinclined student to develop an interest in the subject.

Our tutors have enormous experience and can tailor their teaching to all abilities and levels. The majority of our maths tutors studied maths or science at university. Some of our tutors are studying for their PhDs, and our most exclusive are post-doctorate researchers and lecturers.

We recommend to parents private one-to-one tutoring as maths is a subject where being able to scribble and draw diagrams is of the utmost importance. However, we can offer maths tutoring at a distance online through a shared whiteboard and VoIP call so that student and teacher can share notes, draw pictures, and write equations on screen. Thus, we can connect you to any of our best tutors, the world over.

We also often hold group classes in London, particularly just before UK and US exams and university interview periods. We recommend that students sign up for these classes to brush up on their skills and get their minds focussed before important examinations.

US Math Curriculum Tutoring

One to one private tuition

We teach math at lower school, middle school, and high school levels. In particular, we have tutors that can teach Algebra I, Geometry, AB Calculus, and BC Calculus.

At Wentworth Tutors, we also prepare students for the ISEE, SSAT, PSAT, SAT I, SAT II, ACT, and GRE math standardised tests. These tests present a challenge of learning and exam technique, and we pride ourselves on focused and rigorous exam plans for students.

UK Maths Curriculum Tutoring

At Wentworth Tutors, we teach maths at primary school level, 11+, 13+ Common Entrance and Scholarship, GCSE, A level, Further Maths, STEP, IB, and Advanced Placement levels. So if you are going around in circles trying to understand the circle theorem or are tied in knots trying to untangle the chain rule, we will be able to help.

The majority of our maths tutors studied in the UK system themselves and achieved top grades in GCSE, A Level, and Further Maths and then went on to study maths, one of the sciences, Engineering or Economics in University.

STEP Tutoring For Cambridge, Warwick & Other UK University Entrance

Due to the difficulty of STEP, most students receive extra support for STEP. Competition is stiff, but at Wentworth Tutors we can help level the playing field for your child – increasing their chances of them meeting the grade requirements for their first choice university. We will pair you and your child with your own private STEP tutor; a tutor who has firsthand experience taking STEP as a student and who then went on to study mathematics at university.

If you are a parent or a student thinking about taking STEP, and are unsure what it entails, please see our dedicated STEP webpage for our brief guide to STEP, to read more about our STEP tutors, and for a useful resources section where you can download a pack containing the STEP syllabus, past papers, solutions, and more. Alternatively, please contact us if you would like to hear more about our tutoring options and what tutors we have available.

University Level Maths Tutoring

We have an unrivalled network of qualified tutors who can teach degree level maths, all of whom have graduated with a degree in maths from one of world’s most prestigious universities. For undergraduate teaching, we can connect you to PhD students and professional academics with research and lecturing positions across the globe.

We can offer tutoring at all levels and fields of undergraduate maths, from first year courses to highly specialised final year courses. We have tutors who are experts in every area of maths, from pure maths to statistics to theoretical physics.

We can organise online tutoring through shared whiteboard and VoIP systems or, in some locations, one-to-one tutoring in person.

I have been tutoring in London ever since I graduated from the University of Oxford in 2013 with an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences. ... See Ilya Levantis's tutoring profile
I was brought up in Paris and moved to London to study at Imperial College, where I obtained a Bachelor’s and Master's degree in Theoretical Physics with High First Class honours. My research focussed on the way in which alternative logic systems can help us bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and relativity. I was awarded Associateship of the Royal College of Science. Although I am a science specialist, I also have a strong background in English and Verbal Reasoning. I sat the GRE in 2016 for entrance to US Grad School and got exceptionally good grades (Verbal Reasoning - 99th percentile, Analytical Writing - 93rd percentile). Since 2011, I have offered private tuition for all major examination boards as well as working for the Imperial College summer schools. ... See Nicolas Pimpare's tutoring profile
I took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students. I was also made Director-in-Residence and Master-in-Charge of Debating. Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...

I'm a Postgraduate Medical Student and Oxford University Graduate with a passion for adventure and learning from every opportunity that life offers! I’m a tutor with a broad academic background who has a particular interest in helping kids who lack academic motivation or generally could do with an extra role model. ...

I recently completed my Natural Sciences degree at Christ's College Cambridge, where for my first two years I read maths, physics, and chemistry. In my final year I received the second highest First in the university in history and philosophy of science. Before Cambridge I went to Oundle School, a private boarding school in Northamptonshire.

After a stint working at the Cabinet Office I am now a studying for my Graduate Diploma in Law. My timetable is flexible and essentially self-managed, giving me lots of time to tutor outside of my legal studies.

I started tutoring my friends and peers while at school and have now been tutoring for around 7 years. In that time I have mostly taught maths, english, physics, chemistry and history at GCSE and A level, but have recently begun more intensive tutoring for the UK's 11+ and 13+ exams.
