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 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 at King’s College London and Bristol University graduate with a passion for a wide range of subjects. Studying humanities to A level, focusing on crop genetics during my undergraduate degree and now working to become a doctor translates well into tutoring a varied curriculum and ensures I’ve had plenty of experience in the process of learning. I'm an enthusiastic tutor; effective tutoring raises children’s confidence and gives them skills which they can take far beyond our sessions, which is my favourite aspect of the job. ...
I graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2013 in Natural Sciences (specialising in chemistry) and went straight onto the Teach First graduate programme. For the past three years, I have taught science at Essa Academy in Bolton to students with a vast range of abilities and levels of engagement and have led on engaging and challenging gifted and talented students looking to apply to the top universities.

I am a professional, enthusiastic and committed teacher who is passionate about sharing knowledge and experience with students of all ages and abilities. At Essa, I strive to instil in my students a determination to succeed and a confidence in their own abilities that allows them to maximise their potential – qualities that I have transferred to tutoring with great success. ...
I'm a final year medical student at King's College London and based in Surrey, having done my first three years and intercalated in Psychology at the University of Cambridge. I'm President of the university cycling club and have been tutoring for the last year for Wentworth Tutors. ...
I have been teaching since the age of eighteen when I worked as a classroom assistant at Guildford High School for six months. I then worked at the European School of Brussels while working as an au pair. While studying French and English at Oxford I continued tutoring a range of subjects during the vac. After graduating in 2016 I spent a year working on a research project in South Africa investigating highly vulnerable teens to inform public health policy. Since September 2017 I have been tutoring full-time. I am now living in Clapham, and particularly specialise in French tuition all the way from the age of 7 to undergraduate level. I also have extensive experience tutoring Maths, English and Spanish, as well as a variety of other subjects to GCSE level. In October 2018 I will be taking up a full-time position as a Business Analyst at Mckinsey & Co. ...
I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2015, where I studied French and Italian. Since then, I have completed the Graduate Diploma in Law with Distinction and I am currently studying for the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Moorgate. I have been working as a tutor for four years, with a particular focus on language tuition, Oxbridge applications and tutoring for the 11+. For me, tutoring is an incredibly rewarding experience. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to watch my tutees make progress not only in terms of their academic ability but also in developing self-confidence and a love for learning overall. ...

I grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.

Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. I've worked with students of all abilities, with the bulk of my experience tutoring Maths and Physics at A-level and GCSE standard. I also tutor Biology and Chemistry, drawing on the past two years I have spent studying Medicine. Studying Medicine has enhanced my tutoring ability, as we spend a considerable amount of time developing our communication skills. ...
I graduated from Cambridge University (Newnham College) with a 2:1 in Social Anthropology (and a 1st in Development Studies) in 2009. I have been tutoring private clients since 2005 in subjects ranging from English, Maths, English as foreign language, Interview Technique and Preparation, Test & Exam Preparation and Mentoring. However, my current focus and speciality is tutoring students for all levels of the ISEE and SSAT test as well as tutoring the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. As a child, I attended the Chinese International School in Hong Kong and Alice Smith International School in Kuala Lumpur and then boarded at school in the UK as an overseas student. As a consequence, I particularly enjoy working with students based in Asia applying to international schools and preparing them for the cultural and curriculum adjustment of becoming an overseas student. I am now based in Singapore and tutor students of all ages here and in Hong Kong primarily. I have an excellent track record of increasing test scores and helping tutees to have the confidence and ability to achieve the grades required for their desired schools whilst also acting as a mentor throughout the preparation process. ...
