Wentworth Tutors in London
Wentworth Tutors is one of London's leading private tutoring agency. We supply home tutors to families all across London and the home counties. Normally our private tutors travel to their student's home for the tutoring sessions. However, for older students further out of London we often encourage students and tutors to meet at a mutually convenient location (for example a public library or a University). We also offer group classes in London and skype / shared whiteboard tutoring if you live further afield.
We are a small but premium agency. Since we personally know all of our tutors well we can guarantee to make the best possible match between our clients and tutors. If we don't think we can find you the perfect tutor immediately, we'll tell you as much, but then carry on looking for you. If you're looking for cheap or mid-market tutors with little to no support from the agency beyond the sale process then stop reading now. But if you want the best, the best tutor and the best agency in London drop us a line and we can discuss your particular needs.
Subjects we Cover in London
In London we have private tutors who can teach pretty any school or university subject. Most of our students want help with Maths or Science, and this is where most of our tutors specialise. But we have many excellent tutors who specialise in the humanities and languages. We believe we can tutor pretty much anything, so if you've got an unusual request the feel free to get in touch. We've even been asked to teach the Rubik's cube and Origami!
UK Syllabus & British Exams
In London we have private tutors who can teach pretty any subject at and level in the UK syllabus, from GCSE, A Level and Pre U to 13+, 11+ and primary. Each year we help several students apply to Oxbridge and prepare for their Oxbridge interviews and the STEP exams. Most of our tutors went through the British system as children and then went on to study in Oxbridge or the Russell Group. We are therefore amply qualified to advise you on applications and help you maximise your chances of getting in to your top choice University
US Syllabus & Standardised Tests
We also specialise in the US syllabus and regularly tutor children in the American schools in and around London. Each year we prepare numerous children for the ISEE and SSAT exams and consistenly help students get into their top choice schools. We have helped students gain acceptance to most of the American schools in London and the Home Counties, for example the American School of London (ASL). We also help several older ASL students prepare for their APs and SATs. Our Founder and Head Tutor, Katherine Wiles, grew up in the US system (she went to school in Princeton, New Jersey); as did many of our other tutors.
We work with still more families who are moving to the United States and can help children get into into the top schools in their new area. This year, for example, we helped students gain acceptance into the Los Angeles, Washington DC and Greenwhich Connecticut areas; for example: Harvard Westlake, Roland Park, and Brinmore. We can help with very intensive last minute training - more often than not British families moving out to America only have two or three weeks before their kids need to take the tests.

ISEE | Caitlin Rea
"You have captured our imagination with your methods ; I have to confess this was very much an eye opener for me, so much so that I have been inspired to learn more about what [student] knows and doesn't, how he copes and how you go about it.- From parent " ... See Caitlin Rea's tutoring profile.
SSAT/ISEE | Catriona Ramsay
"We are back from our US school trip. Everything went well and I’m optimistic the girls will get into both schools and then have their choice of where to go. Their ISEE results are in and they are strong (99th percentile and mostly stanine 9). Thanks so much for all your help." ... See Catriona Ramsay's tutoring profile.
STEP Maths | Samuel Channon
"From the beginning of 2017, I started to prepare for my STEP exams under the supervision of Sam. He is absolutely a good tutor, precise, logical and clearly explained the questions I have problems with. He also provided me many exam techniques which I feel were particularly useful." ...

GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics | Ilya Levantis
"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for tutoring Nile. He achieved an A* in Chemistry, Biology and Physics. In Chemistry which was his weakest subject he achieved substantially above the A* grade boundary which I think is largely down to [Ilya's] excellent teaching!" ...

Chemistry (A-level) | Sasha Mottaghi-Taromsari
"Sasha was always polite and punctual. He quickly ascertained My daughter's preferred style of learning and asked her to explain topics to ensure she had understood them before they moved on. Sasha was able to challenge her and asked her to think things through to offer an explananation/answer to his questions." ... See Sasha Mottaghi-Taromsari's tutoring profile.
US College Applications | Kylie Gilchrist
"Kylie was a remarkable help with Michael's college applications. She approached the process holistically, helping him understand which schools best suited his interests and strengths and how to achieve his goals. Her help with SAT preparation raised his scores by 275 points across the various subjects — after several months of tuition, he approached the test calmly and with success." ...

Anna Harrison – Private Tutor in Central London
I was brought up in Central London where I attended Glendower and St Paul's Girls' School. After that, I went on to read Engineering at Trinity College, Cambridge, before working at Goldman Sachs for the past two and half years. Earlier this year I left the City in order to pursue a long standing interest in Medicine. I have always loved Maths and Science and truly believe that we need to encourage students to continue with their STEM subjects. Having had some fantastic teachers throughout my education I really understand the importance of engaging with students, and ensuring that sessions are fun and in context. Having gone through the UK private school system myself, I am very familiar with the quirks of the British education system, from picking secondary schools at 11 or 13 plus, to navigating the university application system. ...
