Below are examples of two tutors, one on our starting rate and the other on our specialist rate to give you some insight on level of experience and expertise. We currently work with around fifty registered tutors. All of our tutors go through a three-stage interview process, and regularly attend our training sessions.
Tim has been teaching since 2007, and has over 1,000 hours of experience teaching university seminars as well as tuition. He has been with Winterwood since 2017. He has a Double First in English Literature from Pembroke College, Cambridge, an MSt from Balliol College, Oxford, for which he was ranked first in his year, and a DPhil from Merton College, Oxford. He lectured at Jesus College, Oxford for three years and interviewed prospective undergraduates, so is our resident expert for Oxbridge applications. Since leaving academia he has worked as a full-time writer alongside tutoring. He writes for the Telegraph, 1843, Apollo and Frieze magazines, and has published fiction, poetry and essays. He is also a regular lecturer on art and art criticism at the Royal Academy of the Arts, and is currently writing a novel and a cultural history of chance titled Fortuna: The Lives of Lady Luck from Ancient Athens to Quantum Physics. Alongside tutoring and writing he teaches Latin in state primary schools for educational charity The Latin Programme.
Chloe is new to private tuition as she joined Winterwood relatively recently, but gained over 4,000 hours of classroom teaching experience before finding us, and has signed up for all the training sessions we offer at which she has impressed all of us. She studied Art History with Film & TV Studies at the University of Warwick, then gained an Mst in Buildings History from Cambridge. Chloe has attended Winterwood training sessions on all entrance exam levels, but most enjoys teaching younger students preparing for the 7+ and 8+. She specialises in encouraging students to utilise a range of creative learning tools, weaving this into the more formal rigour required for exams. Alongside her tutoring she is also a professional actress, and brings the charisma and empathy needed for this into her teaching.
"Winterwood is an extremely professional and supportive agency, that offers regular training to its tutors. The students I have worked with so far have all been delightful and enthusiastic, and the other tutors are switched-on and fun."
"It's always a pleasure to see students expand their capabilities and discover new enthusiasms. It's rare that I've taught a session for Winterwood in which I haven't felt that something's been achieved, and it's even better when students' exam results back that feeling up."
"I have tutored for a number of different agencies in the past but I can say that Winterwood are easily the best that I’ve worked with. They have a true commitment to the welfare and success of their students, and are sensitive with regard to the expectations and demands they place on them. As a tutor this is fantastic since Winterwood take care to ensure that students are placed with compatible tutors who can ensure a positive working relationship, which invariably produces the best results. Communication between the agency, the tutors, the students and their families is always very smooth, which leaves all parties satisfied."
"I have taught a number of different students with Winterwood and I've found it a really positive experience. Unlike other tutoring companies Winterwood provides well-thought out training that has benefited my teaching skills across the board. Jade and Tom, too, have been supportive and insightful on countless occasions. I have worked with a number of tutoring companies in London but Winterwood certainly stand out for their professionalism and attention to detail."
