Maths Tutoring

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.

General Maths and English Comprehension, Year 7 | Sophia Ohler

"Sophia was simply exemplary in her role as a tutor as she not only covered the core reading, comprehension, and math skills he needed to master but also added techniques in increasing his level of confidence and a change of attitude when it comes to problem-solving and answering challenging questions. His overall attitude to learning changed dramatically and since starting his new academic year, his grades in Math and English substantially increased. His attitude is much stronger and is filled with confidence. " ... See Sophia Ohler's tutoring profile.

GCSE Maths | Nicolas Pimpare

"Bethany was at this time, very insecure at Maths, working at a borderline C/B, and she found her school teacher's explanations very difficult to follow. Immediately she started working with Nico, her confidence increased. Nico is a very patient, calm tutor who takes the work at a pace to suit his student. Bethany found his explanations very clear and methodical - he explained processes to her in a way that made them stick in her head. She enjoyed his sessions, never felt pressurised, but made very steady progress. He is both highly knowledgeable but also able to explain methods in a way that makes them clear. Bethany achieved an A grade in her GCSE which we were delighted with, and attribute mainly to Nico's intervention. " ... See Nicolas Pimpare's tutoring profile.
