Our Maths Programmes
At At JJs Tuition our Maths programs are designed to make sure that every student can progress at the optimum rate.
Although we are results driven in our aims, we like to approach learning in a more fun and engaging way that makes your child want to learn and improve their abilities and confidence with us.
Any initial lesson with us is always your free trial lesson. We don’t just jump into a lesson to begin with. First, we discuss with you your concerns about your child’s current situation and what you or their School think needs to be improved upon.
Now if you don’t have any or only a small amount of information for our tutors that is not a problem as their first lesson is more of an assessment where we ascertain where they are and what areas need addressing.
We then put a personalised plan together that we will think help benefit your child the most. At this stage we hope you then signup with us but there is no pressure to do so – we fortunately aren’t sales people but the fact that you are reading this proves you care about your child’s education and that you want the best for them. All our tutors are passionate about helping all the children we tutor.

After each lesson we offer parents feedback on how the lesson has gone; what they are doing well with; what needs improving and discuss any other concerns or feedback that you have.
We also give your child homework after each lesson which we expect them to do each time and hand in the following lesson for their tutor to mark.
The homework we give them helps reinforce what they have learnt in a lesson and is tailored to their ability. We also encourage them and parents to give us continuous feedback on how they are finding the lessons and the work to make sure we can give the maximum benefits that they deserve.
You may have noticed that Maths is a cumulative subject. This means that without the basics in place, students are storing up problems that will almost rear their ugly heads at some point during their learning journey.
Most of these issues that we see crop up are because a student has missed a topic, or just “didn’t get it” and, in a classroom setting, there is seldom a second chance particularly when teachers are under time constraints and as we know students learn at different paces and a teacher cannot usually accommodate that but our tutors can!
Our job is to fill any gaps in learning, so that every student progresses quickly and sustainably.
We use a large number of computer and paper-based resources, many written for us or by us, to cater for every student’s individual needs. For example, our 11+ maths resource is based on questions all of which have featured in the Essex 11+. Our 11+ students will have no nasty surprises when they see the exam paper!
Speaking of exams like you we believe that they are important in ones learning journey. That is why we offer 11 Plus, SATs and GCSE revision sessions to help them prepare better for their exams.
We go through all the topics we have learnt particularly the ones they have found tricky or have already forgotten about. This is usually done over 3 days lasting 2 hours each day and on the 4th day we put all that learning to the test with a mock exam which we hold under strict exam like conditions to make it a realistic as possible experience.
Their papers are then marked and feedback is given on how they need to improve next time.
Our outlearn Program
Our Outlearn program is paper and computer-based, it’s unavailable anywhere else in the area, and it is fun! It caters for ages 5-12.
For the older students and those preparing for GCSE Maths exams, we use Dr Zargle (past papers with worked solutions) Conquer Maths and Kerboodle, as well as our own expert knowledge and resources. We make many of our tutorials available to our students to work from home as well.
At some point in your learning journey your child will reach their goals and either have caught up at School or have excelled. This is the stage where some parents think our work is done and that is the end of tutoring for their child.
Unfortunately all too often a child needs our continuous support as some can fall behind at School again and without our safety net they can repeat the process of falling behind again as their pace of work or understanding can be different to the speed and resources their class teachers have.
Finding JJs was one of the best things we have ever done. Ellis has come on leaps and bounds with his maths in a very short time and we are so pleased!

Maintaining Higher Levels
So we are firm believers of maintaining their hard earned higher levels of abilities rather than having them fall behind again and then having to build them up and their abilities again.
We have Maths tutors in our Leigh on Sea, Basildon and Benfleet centres all highly experienced and trained in their own specific area of Maths from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5 which includes the 11+, SATS, GCSEs and A level exams. Due to the Corona Virus we had to move all our lessons online. We hope once you read this things will be back to normal or at least heading that way.
Whatever happens we will continue to offer online tuition to those that want it as we realise it can be more comfortable to learn in your own home and more convenient for parents who don’t want to be driving around due to their busy schedules.
Whether it is online or in one of our centres the standard our tutors bring to the table when it comes to learning will be the same exacting standards, we expect our tutors to give your child.
To get started on with us here at JJs Tuition please give Craig, Julie or Alice a call or you can contact us on live chat or through our contact form.
