US College & Ivy League Consulting with Wentworth Tutors
We know that applying to College is a daunting time. It can be difficult to know what programmes are strong in particular areas, and how to select the perfect fit. At Wentworth Tutors, we provide a bespoke service to assist families with these difficult decisions and to support them through the process. We provide a complete service: support from the very first attempts to create a College List through to Wait List support and school selection.
We have helped many students gain admission to the schools of their choice, in particular the Ivy League. Students from previous years have gone on to attend:
- Harvard University
- Princeton University
- University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business
- University of Pennsylvania Huntsman Programme
- Stanford University
- Cornell University
- Yale University
- Chicago University
- ... And Many More
