Your Child Gets Assigned The Same Tutor For Every Lesson
Whether they are falling behind at school or a child genius who is finding school not challenging enough, their tutor will create a personalised learning plan based on their initial free trial lesson assessment and feedback their school has given you.
Not only are their lessons personalised to them but so is the homework we set them after each lesson which reinforces what they have learnt in the lesson and can pick up on areas they are struggling in more than they actually realised during the lesson.
In time this will help them gain confidence in their abilities, make learning feel like fun to them and improve their learning journey with new skills.
Meet Julie - Owner of the Basildon Centre
Our owner Julie and our team of highly experienced tutors who have been by Julie’s side all these years will do what they do best and that is to teach your child in a positive, caring and encouraging way which makes your child want to learn and to of course enjoy their time with us.
Every child is different so we make sure all our learning programmes of study are personalised to them according to what is needed to get them reaching their potential and we also try to tailor their learning to their personalities so some students need a gentle hand and lots of praise and some need a more firmer push.

Free Trial Lesson
Their first lesson (the free trial lesson) is where we at JJ's Tuition Basildon first get to know your child and to see which areas we need to help them on.
We do this with a thorough assessment of your child’s current academic abilities and then make a learning plan that is personalised to them.
It is also a great way for you the parent to decide if tutoring with us is right for them as we do understand this whole process is probably new to you and your child and if you are in two minds about us then this is the perfect way to help you decide if you want us help your child or not.
If you decide not to continue, there is no charge and we are tutors not sales people so we won’t bug you to change your mind as our business model is 90% on parent referral.
Maths and English In Basildon
Here at JJs Tuition Basildon we realise how important it is to treat and teach your child as an individual something main stream schools find hard to do at the best of times.
All our Maths and English programmes are designed with your child in mind as they are flexible enough to accommodate your child’s educational needs which means they get a personalised learning plan with us. We are also mindful enough to make sure all that your child learns is heavily aligned to the school curriculum. So, you can be rest assured that our tutors will provide the best possible help to your child’s educational needs.
Tuition for any level of ability no matter how behind or advanced they are
There is no such thing as a child that cannot be helped just one that is not being helped in the right way or not at all. Our job is to provide a high standard of educational assistance that is tailored to a child’s educational needs – whether they are gifted and super talented, looking for a boost in confidence or have special educational needs.

Highly Trained Specialist Teachers
All of our tutors are experienced and highly trained in the school curriculum and always keep their training up to date when there are changes to teaching methods and the school curriculum.
Julie and her team of tutors work in a very happy and relaxed environment while remaining focused on your child’s educational needs. We are very passionate about what we do and what motivates us the most is seeing your child improve and blossom under us.
The Road To Achieving Success
Over the years we have cherished every child’s accomplishments regardless of what others have achieved, year groups or levels, instead we appreciate them reaching and exceeding their own goals which they have worked so hard to get.
We have supported over the last 20 years thousands of children in being more confident when it comes to those own abilities and taking that forward into feeling that whatever their next steps in life are, they can achieve those challenges with the confidence we have instilled within them.
11 Plus and Entrance Exams
We have created an 11 Plus and School Entrance Exam programme which are designed in mind with the local Schools in your area.
We feel that every child should be able to reach their potential and you should feel confident in your child’s continued progress with us that when needed can specifically prepare them for those all-important exams.
As well as giving the them the best possible tuition we can provide intensive revision courses and mock exams to reinforce what they have learnt, improve on it further and get them mentally prepared for exams with exam tips and techniques which will help minimise marks that are lost due to exam stress and anxiety.
By the time we have finished you child will be given the best possible chance of getting into the school they and you want them to go to whether that is a grammar school, a selective school or a private one on scholarship.
I booked my daughter in for tuition approx 9 months ago. She has come on leaps and bounds since! Small groups (2 or 3 others) so plenty of one-to-one attention which simply isn't possible in school.
Julie's approach has been excellent as she focuses on areas of weakness - we started to see small improvements straight away. During lockdown, Julie has been giving the lessons over Zoom. This has worked better than I expected.
My daughter has gone up 2 or three grades since she started so I couldn’t be happier at this stage. This has given her confidence a big boost. The communication and feedback are also very good so I don't have any hesitation in recommending!
Our uniquely created courses are made by ex-examiners who can help your child be thoroughly prepared for getting in to the following schools in the Southend and Chelmsford areas:
- Westcliff High School for Girls
- Westcliff High School for Boys
- The King John School
- Southend High School for Boys
- Southend High School for Girls
- King Edward VI Grammar School
- Chelmsford County High School for Girls
A Different Approach
Tailored to their individual needs
The key to doing well in 11 Plus is to have already developed a strong understanding in core maths and English skills.
Our tutors use their experience coupled with technological aides that help us to offer learning material that is specifically tailored to your child, and because your child will work in a small group, they will receive plenty of one-to-one tuition with their tutor to help encourage and push them further.
Beyond The Exam
We at JJ’s Basildon don’t think we should just be teaching children to pass a one-off exam that leads them into secondary school.
We believe in supporting your child through and after their transition into secondary school. Many students still need our help adjusting to their new lives in secondary education.
Some find it hard and that can be for a multitude of reasons one being that they worked hard to pass and get in so there was a feeling that tuition was not needed anymore but that is not always the case unfortunately so you can be rest assured that we are here to help should your child still need our help and support.

We work closely with a number of local schools in Basildon
We are not here to replace school education but to compliment and support it. That is why we like to work closely with all the local schools and their teachers in the area. Which means your child’s tuition perfectly mirrors their school’s curriculum.
We aim to complement and support school education, which is why we work closely with local schools and teachers, ensuring our tuition is in line with your child’s school curriculum and backing that up with the best results for your child.
Lee Chapel, Anne Line, Marylands, Millhouse, Noak Bridge, Lincewood and Northlands are just an example of some of the schools we work with in the Basildon area.
Our Opening Hours
JJs Basildon tuition centre is open Monday (16.00 to 18.10 and 16.00 to 19.20), Wednesday (16.00 to 18.10 and 16.00 to 19.20) and Saturday (09:00 – 12:20).
Maths, English and Science lessons usually last an hour although in some special cases particularly for very young children we advise a much shorter session. After each lesson there is a short period where parents can get feedback from their child’s tutor after each lesson and perhaps discuss any concerns or questions, they have concerning their child.
FREE trial lessons can be arranged and booked with Julie at our Basildon centre. Before you book a free trial with us if there are any questions you have Craig, Julie or Alice all highly experienced teachers can 100% help provide you with the answers you seek.
And remember if you still are not sure about giving your child regular tuition then the free trial is an ideal way to help make your decision either knowing that there’s no initial financial commitment on your part and we as we are teachers and not sales people there is no hard sell. You just make your mind up based on what you see or read on our site and on what you and your child experiences from the free trial lesson. We look forward to hearing from you.
Matilda’s confidence in both English and Maths has grown significantly whilst attending tutoring with Alice at JJs since year 4. Alice keeps the lessons fun which results in enthusiastic children and a happy learning environment. Since the lessons have been conducted via Zoom, Matilda remains engaged by Alice’s teaching and always looks forward to her classes. Alice gives us regular updates on Matilda’s progress and is always been happy to adapt Matilda’s learning around any areas where we feel she needs extra support. Whatever Matilda does in her education going forward she will have benefited enormously from her time in Alice’s classes. We would have no hesitation in recommending JJ’s and Alice to other parents and hope our other children have the opportunity to learn from Alice in the future.

Jobs in Basildon

We at JJs Basildon Believe In Giving Your Child the Best Possible Educational Advantage at a Price You Can Afford.
That’s why we offer our 5-star rated service at a price that is affordable and most parents agree that it offers great value when you consider how much it can improve their confidence, their educational needs and their future job prospects.
Unlike some of our rivals we don’t charge a registration fee which usually is more than an actual lesson! – we think that’s just a sneaky way of earning more money out of you and clawing back the so-called free trial lesson they have given you.
Our fees are just £100 a month which represents fantastic value when you consider your child is getting lots of one-to-one personalised tuition with a tutor that has been specifically trained for that area of Maths, English or Science in which they need help on.
Your child is also monitored closely and you get that feedback after every single lesson to keep them on track and motivated. Our business has been going for nearly 20 years now and we don’t have huge advertising budgets or have the nerve to give you the hard sell.
All our success has been based on the successes of all the children we have taught over the years and their parents giving us referrals. You can therefore be assured that you are making the best possible decision for your child’s future.
We are also happy to accept childcare vouchers and the childcare element of Working Tax Credits to help with the monthly fees and we also offer a very limited number of free scholarship places which are usually in very high demand. To save even more money why don’t you recommend a friend or fellow school mum to our ‘Refer A Friend’ scheme which gives you £50 off your bill and £50 off their initial bill when they sign up with us.
