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 graduated from University College London (UCL) in 2014 with a 1st class degree in Ancient History and a Cambridge CELTA qualification in English foreign language teaching. I grew up in Sussex, England where I went to Worth Abbey boarding school and obtained my A-Levels (Maths, English, French and Music). Before applying to university I moved to London to study two more A-Levels (Ancient History and Classics) at Mander Portman Woodward sixth form college (MPW) in South Kensington. Throughout university I was an English language teacher at different international summer schools teaching teenagers of various nationalities including French, Spanish, Japanese and Russian.

After graduating from UCL I moved to the south of Spain where I tutored part-time on a one-to-one basis helping students of all ages improve their conversational English. ...
I have been tutoring in the private sector since 2007. Whilst completing my studies I had experience tutoring mathematics for ages 12-16 (including GCSE). During my gap year I worked as a cover supervisor at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar school where I had experience teaching mathematics to Year 8 (12-13 years old) and to a GCSE class. I also had experience teaching Core 1 (AS mathematics model) to a group of highly able students who were taking the exam a year early. Whilst completing my degree I had further experience tutoring GCSE mathematics.

I attended Girton College at the University of Cambridge and studied on the Natural Science Tripos. She took modules in mathematics, chemistry, material science, biochemistry, psychology, neurobiology and physiology. My specialist interest was in physiology and my final year project explored the development of the human middle ear bones. I recently completed a Masters in Clinical Neuroscience at King's College London in which I achieved a distinction and was awarded the Gold Medal for achieving the highest mark in the year. I have since returned to King's to undertake their four year graduate medicine course. I took A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics as well as a AS Level in Ancient Greek.

I am passionate about tutoring mathematics as believe the analytical and problem solving skills it develops are crucial for a whole range of academic disciplines or careers. In my spare time I am a keen cyclist and I race for King's College London Cycling Club of which I was also the 2015-2016 President. ...

After university, I taught in the Human Biology department at Stanford, teaching courses such as Human Evolution, Child Psychology and Development, and Health and Environmental Policy. For the past two years, I have been working at a customer experience tech start-up, and I am now pursuing an MA in Service Design at the Royal College of Art. ...

I have been studying with degree level students for years and find tailoring concepts and processes to an individual’s interests exciting.

During my law studies, I am hoping to fill my free time with tutoring, a pursuit that I really enjoy. Over the past few years I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring, and have loved seeing my pupils become more confident and learn to enjoy their studies.
