Winterwood takes a slightly different approach to other agencies. We believe in offering a unique, tailored service, and our clients understand and appreciate this. We manage the tuition process carefully, and ensure that tutors are introduced to families, fully briefed in advance and, importantly, provided with the training, resources and guidance that they need to achieve success.

A Winterwood tutor will always have a clear idea of their objective, and they will always be working under the close supervision of the agency, benefitting from the expertise of our account management team and managing directors, Tom Parkinson and Jade Everingham. We go to great lengths to ensure tuition is fit to purpose, and make sure that all clients benefit from an initial introductory assessment (see here for details) which sets out exactly what a student will need before the process begins.

A unique part of the process is the comprehensive training that we offer our tutors. We train each tutor in the subject that they will be teaching, and hold regular training meetings and briefings at our offices. We strongly believe in a well-trained, highly motivated and cohesive workforce. Our tutors understand and respect our values, and take the needs of the families and students they work with seriously. At every stage, Winterwood will be involved. A trained tutor, working to a clear system and with support and guidance, can offer so much more than a private individual.

We aim to offer an elite, tailored service and we are selective about the clients we work with. Many of our clients come directly through personal recommendation and understand the value we bring; in fact, our entire business was founded on word-of-mouth recommendations. If you are new to Winterwood, and our approach, please feel free to browse our site to learn more, or contact one of our managing directors to learn more.

The majority of the tuition carried out by tutors working for Winterwood involves preparation for entrance exams. Our experienced tutors have prepared hundreds of students for entrance exams at independent schools in London and boarding schools around the country.

The majority of the tuition carried out by tutors working for Winterwood involves preparation for entrance exams. Our experienced tutors have prepared hundreds of students for entrance exams at independent schools in London and boarding schools around the country.

Our method involves carefully matching a tutor to a student, ideally at an early stage so they have plenty of time to prepare. The tutor and student then work together intensively, covering all aspects of the admission process. We prefer to offer separate tutors for English/Verbal Reasoning and Maths/Non-Verbal, as we have found this to add value to the process.

Each student sitting entrance exams will also be closely managed by our administrative team and directors. They will be regularly appraised of progress, provided with reports and feedback, and re-assessed well in advance of entrance exams. We much prefer teams of Winterwood Tutors to provide all tuition, as we cannot vouch for, nor manage, tutors provided by other agencies or working in a private capacity.

Using our resources and tailored tuition process, we have guided hundreds of students to their target schools. Every year, Winterwood students are offered places at St Paul’s, Westminster, City of London, Haberdashers’, Highgate, UCS, Latymer, Dulwich College, Merchant Taylor’s and Mill Hill, along with St Paul’s Girls, City of London Girls, North London Collegiate, South Hampstead, Godolphin & Latymer, Francis Holland and more. Outside London, we help students gain entrance to schools such as Eton, Harrow, Wellington, Marlborough, Cheltenham Ladies’, Wycombe Abbey, Charterhouse, Bradfield, Millfield and many more. Testimonials, references and success stories are available here, or upon request.

DR TOM PARKINSON

Tom has been working in the tuition industry since 2007. He has thousands of hours of tuition experience, and a fantastic success rate, guiding students to target schools such as Westminster, St Paul’s, Eton, Winchester, City of London and many more. Many of Tom’s students receive multiple school offers, and on many occasions academic scholarships. Tom has helped student succeed at 7+, 8+, 10+, 11+ and 13+ level, and also guides students through common entrance and school scholarship exams.

Tom now devotes much of his time to managing existing teaching relationships and running Winterwood, and has extremely limited availability for tuition, with a two year waiting list for his services (as of 2017). Prior to co-founding Winterwood with Jade Everingham, Tom completed a PhD in the English Department at Queen Mary, University of London, teaching on the Shakespeare and Reading, Theory and Interpretation undergraduate courses.

Tom is responsible for meeting new families, managing teaching relationships, and offering entrance exam assessments and advice. Feel free to contact Tom at:

JADE EVERINGHAM

Jade worked in the private tuition industry since 2008, and has honed a style of tuition founded in an academic approach to entrance exams, pushing students far beyond their level. Jade’s students have won prestigious academic scholarships and achieved incredible GCSE and A Level grades, scoring 100% in A-Level English and GCSE Art modules, and taking an A-Level student from an overall ‘D’ to an ‘A’ in just six weeks of tuition.

Jade now rarely tutors, and like Tom has no current availability and places prospective students on a waiting list. Jade co-founded Winterwood Tutors with Tom, and was instrumental in founding Winterwood Group Limited, covering placements and tuition outside the United Kingdom. Prior to founding Winterwood, Jade graduated from Queen Mary, University of London with a First Class degree in English. She also holds an interdisciplinary MA from the same institution, in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies, and has worked as a researcher for the London Metropolitan Archives and the British Library.

Jade manages the business at an executive level, and is responsible for overall strategy and key management decisions. Jade helps manage our staff and tutors, and is the first point of contact for recruitment enquiries. Feel free to contact Jade at:
