Our leigh on Sea centre is one of three centres JJ’s runs alongside Basildon and Benfleet. We set up our centres with your child in mind in order to help them reach their aspirations, improve upon their current knowledge and give them more confidence in themselves and their abilities. You will find all our tutors are highly trained and experienced in their own respected subjects and specific levels for that subject and you can be assured we work closely with most schools and make sure what they learn is what is in the national curriculum.
We focus on the core subjects at school – Maths, English and Science. Teaching starts at about the age of 5 and goes up to 18 years of age. We do all the important exams in various subjects like the 11 Plus, SATs, GCSEs, Maths A Levels and school entrance exams.

The Same Tutor Is Given To Your Child For Each Lesson
We believe in giving your child the chance to really challenge themselves whether they are falling behind at school or a gifted child that need more of a challenge. That journey of learning should involve a tutor that is there with them every step of the way and understand what they can do and how much they can be pushed to do better.
Children work better with the same tutor and all our tutors are trained not just to teach and push them to their limits but we do it in a friendly, caring and encouraging way as we find children learn better if they get on with their tutors. We also find the familiarity and strong bond that can be created by having the same person teach them each lesson really helps improve their confidence and their abilities.
Each child after their free trial lesson get a personalised learning plan that is unique to them and having the same tutor each time means they can always adapt that plan if things change and by being there each time to teach your child they will understand better when they may be struggling and with their personalised homework plan too anything missed in the lesson will be picked up again by the tutor after marking your child’s work.
We hope by having this continuity that your child will form a good working relationship with one of our tutors who will be there will them every step of the way helping and encouraging to succeed in a fun and engaging way.

Why Should You Consider A Free Trial Lesson For Your Child With JJs Tuition Leigh-On-Sea?
First let us say that even if you aren’t sure if having tuition is right for your child the free trial lesson is free, you don’t have to sign up to anything and by taking up this offer it will help make your decision an easier one whether you go ahead with us or not.
Most tuition centres offer a free trial lesson. Nothing special about getting your first lesson free is there? WRONG, we don’t just throw your child into the deep end into a group to see if they like it or not. Instead we give them a personalised assessment to see which areas need attention and which need the most.
Next, we discuss where they are now academically, where they need to be and where we think they can be potential wise. Each child has the potential not just to meet expectations but to quite often exceed it.
At this stage it is up to you the parent if you decide to sign up with us. We aren’t sales people (we loath them as much as you do – sorry if you are a sales person reading this). So, you won’t get hassled into signing up with us.
We like to think that the fact that we have a great track record in helping a very high percentage of our students improve and/or get better test scores (just check out our review and rate us page) and the fact that we offer all our students the same tutor for each lesson who is a specialist for their level of study and after each lesson you the parent can get feedback from their tutor on how they did.
As they say the ultimate decision lies with you the parent. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have over your child’s education and either Julie, Craig or Alice who will be able via phone, live chat or our contact form answer any questions you may have.
Maths and English In Leigh-On-Sea
We at JJs Tuition Leigh-on-Sea recognise why it is so vital that we manage every child we teach as an individual as one size does not fit all when it comes to educating students. Too often more individualistic needs are neglected in main stream schools because teachers have limited time and resources for bright pupils or pupils who are struggling and can’t catch up due the pace lessons at school move at.
Which probably explains why private tutoring as an industry has shot up in popularity the last ten years or so. That is why all our Maths and English programs are specifically catered for the individual child in mind. The programs are flexible in that they work at your child’s speed and abilities.
To make sure they get the best from us all the lessons are personalised for each child, we even do the same with the homework their tutor will set from them. We want to give them what they can handle but at the same time just that little bit more to see how far we can push their hidden talents out in to the open. That means are program of study are flexible and help encourage them to carry on improving and learning from our tutors.
All the work they do is naturally in line with the national curriculum and taught in such a way that they will understand how to tackle certain topics (even if it takes us a while to get there, we don’t leave them behind). We also try to give them a boost with constant enthusiasm, patience and encouragement.
Tutors for any level your child is currently at whether they are behind or are advanced!
Here at JJ’s Tuition Leigh on Sea we believe that no child should not be left behind. We always try to get the best out of students regardless of their abilities when they first come to us. With us they will get a very high standard of education which is tailored to their individual needs.
Over the years we have helped children who have come to us at all different levels from behind far behind (with or without special needs); a bit behind, wanting help with exams and those who are already a child genius. To us their initial ability does not affect how we treat them as all students are special in their own way and the best bit it getting that true potential out of them to the delight of them and their parents.

All Our Tutors are Highly Trained
All our tutors are Highly trained for specific levels in English, Maths or Science.
Our team of tutors are handpicked by owners Craig and Julie for their experience and their ability to work well with all different abilities.
When we interview for a new tutor we make a point of hiring friendly tutors who we think will form good bonds with our students as we have seen and experienced with our own children what can happen when your child has a personality clash with a teacher at school and that’s a situation we won’t accept at any of our centres.
Each student gets the same tutor each lesson who is a specialist in not only their subject of learning but also the level of learning that they need help on.
Our tutors are always up to date on any changes to teaching methods or the school curriculum. We all work in a very happy and relaxed learning environment without losing any focus or drive with the task at hand when it comes to your child’s learning experience with us.
Our whole team is very passionate about what we do and we try to get the best out of our students. Some need a gentle hand with lots of encouragement and some students need a gentle but firm push.
In consultation with you we make sure we get that balance right so they get more confident and enthusiastic about learning with us. The end result for students and parents is normally in most cases a happy one and that is what drives us all here at JJ’s Leigh on Sea is taking your child from an underperforming student low on confidence to a student who is happy, full of confidence and doing well at school.
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.
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!
Please note that all our specially designed courses are put together by ex-examiners in order to help your child be prepared for anything the exams throw at them!
We cover the following schools in the Southend and Chelmsford areas for the 11 Plus:
- 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
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?
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!
