Your Child Always Gets The Same Tutor For Each Lesson

Here at JJs Tuition Benfleet we strongly believe that each child deserves the best possible help we can give them. The first most important thing we like to give all students is that feeling of continuity. Which means each lesson each week will follow a set pattern of learning, homework set and feedback with their parent.

On top of this we make sure they have the same tutor for each lesson as we want our tutors to build a good working relationship with your child.

This means we will work at a pace that they can maintain but do it in a challenging and fun way so we get the best out of them. So, whether your child is falling behind, struggling a bit or is gifted we will make sure we work at a pace that works for them academically.

Our tutors always make sure too that your child understands all the topics we cover and if they don’t, we will keep on going through it with them until they do.
Unlike at school there’s no chance of your child falling further behind with us, they can only go on improve and gain in confidence.

As well as the tuition we reinforce their learning journey with homework which is set based on their own personal abilities and we always check to see if your child finds the work too hard or not challenging enough.

Personalised Learning Plan

We find giving each child a personlised learning plan, which initially is based on the first assessment that they have on their free trial lesson sets the pace and then as time goes on and your tutor gets to know your child it gets tweaked so we get the best out of them.

We use feedback with parents (which is held after each lesson) and a student’s performance during a lesson and on the homework that we mark to make sure they do understand each topic we teach them in as what happens too often at school is the student falls behind because their class moves at a faster pace than them and the teacher just does not have the time or the resources to get your child back up to speed.

This pattern can go on for months sometimes years before anyone picks it which is why we are so passionate and particular about getting students back to a level where they should be. It is not a quick fix but you will see your child improve once they come to us.

By having constant checks and balances in place for every student we the tutors can monitor their progress closely. We can encourage and push your child in the right way which equates to better test scores, improved confidence and we hope ultimately brighter job prospects.
Sign your child up for a free trial lesson today – it could be the best decision you ever make for them!

Our owner Craig has around 30 years’ worth of teaching under his belt. Craig is very much a hands-on owner who likes to tutor alongside his team of highly trained friendly tutors.

You will find at JJs Tuition Benfleet that Craig has a team of tutors who are all specialists in their own particular subject level. This means we have tutors experienced in different levels of Maths, English and Science which means we can always put your child with the right tutor for their ability level.

We aim to make sure that every student learning journey with us is a progressive and enjoyable one. We don’t work to strict timetables although we do try to push them in a way that they will not notice as we like to make our learning fun and engaging.

All our tutors like to build up a good relationship with our students whereby they trust us and they enjoy working with us. We think enjoyment and determination on your child’s part are the secret successful foundations to learning.

We all do better at work don’t we if we enjoy the task at hand. So, we try and make even the boring stuff sound engaging and fun at time!

So, the aim is not just enjoyment (that’s the carrot) it is to widen their skillset, make them more confident in their abilities and to ultimately improve on where there are no to where they should be.

Getting results is why parents come to us. They see their child falling behind, feeling unhappy and demotivated. Like any good football manager, we want to see results but to get their results we need to get them to start believing in themselves again, lifting their confidence levels and making them feel comfortable to ask questions when they feel they are struggling.

Our aim is to get your child on the right learning path and improve their future prospects with our caring and understanding tutors who will gently guide them through it all. Give them an engaging learning process that they respond well to. We are not afraid to push your child when needed but every child is different so some students need little or none and some need a fair bit but our aim is as always to give them the best help out there!

Reasons To Consider A Free Trial Lesson With JJs Tuition Benfleet?

Right now, if you are sitting on the fence about whether tuition is right for your child consider this: By just arranging a free trial lesson with us you are not committing to anything at this stage. Just contact us to book a time when you want to come along with your child. See how they get along and usually in 99.9% of cases those who have not made their mind up either way usually have by the end of the trial lesson. Parents just find the trial lesson makes it so much easier to make an important decision like this. Please remember we are just teachers and not annoying sales people so if you say no then we respect that decision, so there is no pressure on you the parent taking up the free trial lesson. As you probably are already aware most tuition centres do offer a free trial lesson. Which on the face of it seems great doesn’t it? All the choice for you! Well what you probably do not realise is that quite a few of them hide in the small print about the membership fees you have to pay when you sign up. We have seen some charge £50 plus! So that free trial lesson is only free if you don’t sign up with them.  You will be pleased to hear that we don’t charge rip off membership fees! The next problem is the free trial lesson itself. Now, most of the time your child will just be thrown in at the deep end with a group of other students. Instead we do a formal assessment with them to see where they are academically so if you do sign up then we can put them on a personalised learning plan.

After The Trial Lesson

Our trial lesson with us involves the personal assessment then we have a chat with you and discuss where they need to be and where we think their potential could lead them. Our first aim is to get their confidence back and then get them eventually back up to their expected level and quite often a lot of our students actually exceed those initial expectations we and you the parent had after the free trial lesson.

Now that the trial lesson is over and we have discussed your child with you this is when you either sign up with us or you don’t – as we said previously, we don’t believe in acting like annoying sales people as this is your child’s education and not a new car or sofa you are buying. We hope you sign up like thousands of happy parents have done over the years but we don’t want to pressure you as we live and die by our hard-working tutors which I hope you get to experience in one of our free trial lessons.

Please contact us with any questions you have over your child’s education and either Julie, Craig or Alice via phone, live chat or our contact form and they will happily answer any questions that you may have.

“Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.”

Maths and English In Benfleet

Here at JJs Tuition Benfleet we know why it is so important to manage each student we tutor as an individual as no one student has the same abilities and no one student learns at exactly the same pace in a classroom environment meaning many get left behind and for some even get bored as they feel the pace is actually too slow. The education system cannot cater very well for each individual that is where we step in.

In recent years there has been a huge cultural shift in people using the private industry to prop up their child’s education.

Over the years we have developed specialised programs in Maths, English and Science to help bridge the gap left behind by the Education system. Our programs are tailored to each student on an individual basis.

The programs are designed to be flexible for your child so that they are most affective at the pace your child learns and at their level of current ability at any given time during their leaning journey with us. The programs are always in line with the latest teaching methods and up to date with the national curriculum.

Tutors in Maths, English and Science available for any level your child is currently at!

Whatever your child’s level of ability they never get left behind with us, instead they improve with us and it is always done in a way they can understand and at a pace they can manage. All our tutors know how important it is to be patient with a struggling student and to show them lots of encouragement.

All our tutors are Highly trained

At JJs Tuition Benfleet our team of tutors personally put together by Craig for their expertise in a variety of areas for Maths, English and Science are assigned students of all abilities.  We like to put students in small groups of similar abilities.

When we interview for a new tutor, we make a point of hiring only tutors that are friendly to everyone especially the students and form a good bond with everyone they teach. We know sadly from our own experience as parents what can happen when there is a personality clash between a teacher and a student and that is situation, we will not tolerate with any of our tutors or indeed with the students themselves.

If there are problems in that way we will let you know and if you feel there is an issue with one of tutors (although it has never happened so far) please let us know because we want the best for your child just as much as you do which is why we have feedback with parents after each lesson so no problems get misses or swept under the carpet.

All our tutors are very passionate when it comes to education and tutoring our students. Some need gentle guidance and some students need a bit of a gentle push. In consultation with you we will get that balance just right so they get confident in their own abilities and get enthusiastic about their learning with us.

The main result for students and parents in most cases is a happy one. Those little steps, those big milestones and those good test scores are what keeps motivating us to keep teaching year after year. We don’t have the red tape and office politics that lots of teachers get at a school we just all get on so well as one big educational family here at JJ’s Benfleet.

You the happy parents and students forever thanking our hard-working tutors are what makes this more of a vocation than a business for us all.

11 Plus and Entrance Exams Southend, Chelmsford, Colchester etc.

JJs Tuition Benfleet have created unique to us an 11 Plus and School entrance exam program which was made just to help students get into local schools in their area.

Every child should be offered the opportunity to try and reach their true potentional and you can feel confident in the fact that your child’s continued progress with us will give them a strong and solid foundation for passing those big exams.

This unique program is also made flexible enough so it can be more personalised to each student’s needs. We also reinforce the program by offering intensive revision courses which culminate in mock exams at the end. The mock exams help us to identify any areas that your child may need further work on. The mock exams are also held under strict exam like conditions which means they will be more mentally prepared for the real thing and many studies back this theory up!

It also helps them learn exam technique which even though we cover this area nothing beats experiencing the answering of questions in exam format and having to manage your time better on each question and doing this all under pressure.

Exams at a young age are a big thing for students so if we can help them in any way with that part of things that isn’t really covered too much then we will.

Hopefully when the big day arrives, they will feel focused and confident in their own abilities.

School girl writing in class

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!

Beyond The Exam

After the exams
Once your child has passed and in their choice of Secondary School, we at JJ’s Tuition Benfleet have realised over the years that this is not necessarily the end tutoring wise for all students. Some students still need our support going forward.

When you start Secondary School especially Grammar School the amount of homework and higher working standards thrust on students can be quite a shock and hard to handle sometimes.  If your child has only just passed say the 11+ then they are at the most risk of struggling again and losing all that confidence they gained with us. Which is why some students find these big changes a lot easier to cope with when they have the support of a tutor.

Too often though child and parent think their child can handle the new challenges without a tutor and sometimes they do but sometimes they don’t so please bear that in mind some children do need tutoring just that bit longer to either help them adjust to their new environment or to help them keep up especially when it comes to those all-important GCSEs!

So where ever your child is in their learning journey at school rest assured our tutors are there to offer help and support to parents and students whenever they need it.

For more information and to book a free trial lesson please get in touch with Craig, Julie or Alice. You can get hold of them on the phone, via live chat or through our contact form.

We work closely with several local schools in the Benfleet Area.

You won’t find JJs Tuition Benfleet replacing what your child has learnt at school rather we here to support and supplement their learning.

That is why we like to work closely with local schools and teachers near us.
This means a child’s tuition always encompasses the national curriculum. With that kind of ethos, the enthusiasm and the time we can give your child equals a recipe for success.

Our Tutors at JJs Tuition Benfleet Believe In Giving All Students The Best Educational Advantage At A Price You Can Afford

When it comes to tuition just check out our review and rate us page to see what parents think a 5-star experience feels like. Review and review praising our tutors for all the hard work they have done to improve the abilities and condfience of thousands of students over the past 20 years.

We get our students better test scores, more exam passes, increased confidence in their own abilities, better teacher reports from school. Some students have gone from being well behind to advanced. We see in probably over 99% of cases improvements in students from when they first came to us. We try our hardest to make sure no student falls behind and doesn’t improve.

We have never been great at marketing our business because at the end of the day we are just teachers but we have never had to be thanks to the continued reviews and recommendations parents just keep leaving us all the time. We could write a book on how some parents find out about our services from others, some in the weirdest and funniest situations, like in the back of taxi!

When it comes to price as the saying goes, “you can’t put a price on education.” We as teachers have to pay the bills somehow so we try and charge what we think is a more than reasonable rate to parents. All I can say to those bargain hunters out there that like a good deal is that we are not the cheapest but we do represent the best value when you consider what your child gets out of it from us.

They get more confidence and belief in their abilities. They do better at school and they do better at exams, which at the end of the day gives them better future job prospects – money well spent we would say! So will you risk your child’s future with a cheaper less experienced tutor?

Schoolgirl Studying In Classroom

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 Benfleet

Every now and then we need tutors to either cover lessons in an emergency or to replace tutors who have left. We usually need Maths, English or Science teachers who can bring in their experience from working in schools into either our Benfleet, Basildon or Leigh on Sea tuition centres.

Also, sometimes we do have non tutor roles too.
From time to time we need tutors either to cover other tutors or to come and in and teach their own specialist subject.

We are always on the lookout for Maths, English and Science tutors who can bring their experience as a teacher into our Leigh on sea, Basildon or Benfleet centres. Occasionally we also have non tutor roles too.

If you are mad about education, like to work with children in small groups and are positive and enthusiastic about what you do and feel you would be a good fit for our family based business then please get in touch with Craig or Julie to see if we currently have any vacancies.

However, we do have some good news for you bargain hunters – we do not charge any registration or sign up fees if you join us.

 £30 or £50 to just sign your child up with some tuition centre sounds like a bit of a con to us!

What do you get for the fee? We think some places just do it to recoup the free trial lesson they just gave you – sneaky or what?!

Our fees are just £110 a month which is great value for Benfleet as your child receives lots of one-to-one tuition in small groups and always with a personalised specialist tutor (that is the same for each lesson) who provides you the parent feedback after every lesson should it be required.

For those parents on low incomes who just would not be able to afford our fees normally we do accept childcare vouchers and the childcare element of working tax credits which will help with the cost of our monthly fees. Every now and then we also offer a very small limited amount of free scholarship places, which are always in great demand.

To save even more money why don’t you recommend a friend, school mum or Facebook friend to us and if they sign up you both get £50 off your next bill.

Our Feedback On Being Forced To Go Online

When schools closed down due to Covid-19 we knew we couldn’t just sit back and accept education had defeated us tutors. That’s why we adapted our skills and went into online tuition.

Despite the odd initial glitch, it has worked out very well so much so that we expect this option to remain in some capacity going forward. We even plan once every is back to normal to offer some of the interactive features we have been using in centre!
