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 JJs 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.
The learning journey to success
For each child success is celebrated here at JJs Tuition Leigh on Sea. No matter how big or small those achievements may seem to others to us seeing a child go from being unsure of themselves and their abilities to being full of confidence and doing well at school is what matters to us.
As long as they have achieved and sometimes surpassed their goals then that is a big win for all concerned. We try to emphasise that it does not matter how well others on the same level, year group have done it is how well and how hard they have worked that matter.
Over the last 20 years or so we have helped thousands of children to be more confident in themselves and their abilities and giving them huge hope that the next steps they take in life will be good ones where they can continue to challenge themselves and achieve all their expectations. We hope that the knowledge and confidence we have installed in them will be with them for life in whatever they choose to do with their lives.
Our specially designed courses are put together by ex-examiners who can help your child by being well prepared for entrance 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
11 Plus and School Entrance Exams
At JJs Tuition Leigh on Sea we have made unique to us a specialised 11+ and school entrance exam program which was created to help your child get into local schools in your area.
We feel that every single child should have the chance and the opportunity to reach their potential and you should feel rest assured that your child’s ongoing development with us will help give them a good strong base for tacking those big exams.
In addition to our unique tuition programs that are personalised to your child we back that up with intensive revision course just to make sure we have covered every topic thoroughly. We then take that an extra step by offering mock exams after the revision sessions to see if there is any particular area, they still need to revise more on. This all helps us to reinforce from they have previously learnt and improve on it a bit further by getting them mentally prepared for the big day when they take their exams.
We cover exam techniques to help them answer questions better under pressure so they are not spending too much or not enough time on certain questions. We also help them get used to the way exam questions laid out. We hope by covering every angle that they go into the exams feeling more confident and relaxed in their own abilities. Keeping students calm and relaxed helps them to focus more and not lose marks because of their unfamiliarity with exam papers and the nerves they get from the unknown so to speak.
By the time the exams come around for real we believe we will have given your child the best possible chance of getting into a school that they want to go to no matter how selective or tough getting into that school of choice may have seemed at the start of their learning journey with us.
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!
A Better Way Of Doing Things
With our course you will find that any child is welcome who has the desire and enthusiasm to gain entrance into a Grammar or Independent school.
Students doing our 11 Plus course will have fun and engaging lessons with a specifically assigned tutor at least once a week back up by the best online resources to help your child. Helping them to be able to use those resources to revise numerous non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions, especially the areas they need more revision on.

After The Exams
When everything is done and dusted, we at JJs Tuition Leigh on Sea don’t think that should not be the end of the learning journey for your child once they have got into their choice of secondary school it can be a hard transition for them which is why we are here to support them.
The amount of work suddenly thrust upon some students can feel overwhelming or the speed the learning runs at in their new school. It can be especially hard for those students who only just passed their 11 Plus. It is lot easier to cope with these huge changes when you still have ongoing support from your tutor.
Too often I am afraid to say that some folks think that once we have done our job which was to get their child into a good school then there is no need for more tutoring and sometimes that is true but more often than not students still need that additional educational support to make sure they don’t fall behind again as too often we find some students fall behind again and then need to come back to us.
We work closely with several local schools in the Benfleet Area.
JJs Tuition Leigh on Sea are not here to replace what your child learns at school but we are here to support and supplement their learning. Which is why we love working closely with schools and teachers near to us.
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. With that kind of ethos, we believe it helps s take our child that one step further to achieve their ambitions.
West Legh Junior School, St. Michael’s, Leigh North Street, Saint Pierre School and Chalkwell Hall Junior School, are just a few examples of some of the schools we work with in the Leigh on Sea area.
Our Opening Hours
JJs Leigh on Sea tuition centre is open Monday to Friday (16.00 to 18.50) and Saturday (09:30 – 12:20).
Maths, English and Science lessons usually last about 60 minutes although in some special cases particularly for very young children we advise a much shorter session for them. After each lesson there is an opportunity for parents to get feedback from their child’s tutor and maybe discuss any concerns or questions, they have about their child.

As we are teachers and have no clue about selling there is no hard sell if you don’t want to sign up with us. We think our trial lessons; what we say on our site and the hundreds of 5-star reviews parents have given us over the years are our best sales people!
90% of our business comes from the referrals we get from parents.
We look forward to seeing you and your child at the free trial lesson.
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.

Our Tutors At JJs Leigh-on-Sea Believe In Giving Your Child The Best Possible Education At a Price You Can Afford
So, what is 5-star service when it comes to tuition? Well we like to think it involves our high-quality educational services that have brought our students in well over 90% of cases improved test scores, greater confidence levels and big jumps in the improvements we seen from our students.
The report parents get from their child’s teachers after parents evening and the exam scores they get are testament to those results.
We also do it all with a smile. It might just seem like we are just getting results for your child but we like to do it with a smile in a friendly and conducive manner to them.
The price we charge is not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive. The value we provide is in the results we give your child, which helps give them more confidence, helps them pass exams and at the end of the day helps improve their job prospects.
Although we like a good deal ourselves, we cannot offer discounts for parents who wish to haggle with us, as you have already gathered the value is in the future results your child gets, so are you going to shop around and risk your child’s future?
However, we do have some good news for you bargain hunters – we do not charge registration fees after you sign up with us.
£30 or £50 to sign your child up to say they are now a student at JJ’s Leigh on Sea?
We can’t see why this fee needs to be charged, maybe it is to claw back the money they lost from giving you a free trial lesson? So maybe that first lesson wasn’t free then? Well it is free with us and always will remain that way and rest assured the trial lesson isn’t any normal lesson like other tutoring centres where they just through you in. You get a proper assessment with us along with a personalised learning plan for your child.
Our fees are just £110 a month which is great value for Leigh on Sea as we offer lots of one-to-one tuition in small groups with a personalised specialist tutor who gives you the parent feedback after each lesson which lasts for 60 minutes.
Our business has been running for over 20 years now and we are very family orientated and all about helping your child succeed more than anything else. It is that dedication and enthusiasm of all our tutors which has helped students, pleased parents and helped our business run so well without doing a lot of marketing – as they say the results speak for themselves and all those referrals from happy parents is what has kept us all in a job so to speak and for that we are very grateful.
We do this for the children, their successes feel like our successes and that is what inspires us and motivates us to keep going and to keep giving your children the best help they deserve. That is why when schools closed down due to Covid-19 we knew we couldn’t just sit back and that’s why we went into online tuition and it has worked out so much better than expected so that is why we think that option is here to stay!
Please note those on lower incomes who think they cannot afford to send their child to us for tutoring that we accept childcare vouchers and the childcare element of working tax credits to help with the cost of our monthly fees. We also offer a very limited number of free scholarship places which are always in high 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.
