p.s. I don't know if Alice told you but Jude aced his 11 Plus with a scholarship so huge thanks to her and Helen

Dylan has helped a great deal and she understands more, if things change we would not hesitate to come back to you.



We would like to let you know that Maria has been a wonderful tutor for Will. She has really inspired him in his learning.

Thank you



The tutors are very good and have helped my son with his GCSEs. I hired tutors for years 10 & 11 and am very pleased with the results.


A huge thank you to Jan for providing a prompt and effective service in finding us English GCSE and Maths GCSE Tutors. Both ladies sourced were always punctual, easily contactable, well prepared and most importantly, both had a great rapport with our son, and made a huge difference to his confidence and understanding of these crucial subjects. Stella ensured he got a 7 in Language and a 6 in Literature ( from 3s in the Mocks!) Jackie took him from a grade 2 to that vital pass at 4. We are so grateful to all three of you. Using Basing Tutors was the best decision we made.


Following a personal recommendation from local educators, we approached Basing Tutors over 1 year ago to help support my dyslexic son with his GCSE revision. The tutor we were assigned (Fe Berwick) immediately put my son at ease and over the following year and half, they built an amazing working relationship resulting in my son achieving his very best in all his exams. Fe knew exactly how to motivate him to achieve! It’s had lasting effects as he is now uses the study skills Fe taught him and is no longer embarrassed to voice when he needs support. Cannot recommend Basing Tutors highly enough.


Hi Jan. 


Please can you pass on huge thanks from myself and William to John. 

With his help and guidance William managed to secure a grade 6 in the higher tier maths paper. He was aiming for a 5 which is what he needed for college so he, understandably, is over the moon. 

He knows it was johns help that got him that grade so please pass on our thanks.

We are so grateful to all three of you.

Using Basing Tutors was the best decision we could have made. 

I would like to thank Basing Tutors for helping Aaron with his English in the run up to these exam’s and especially to Sue who has been amazing, patience and supportive over this period. I would like to wish Basing Tutors every success and will carry on recommending you to others.


Basing Tutors supported us in finding a tutor for maths. When the first tutor let us down they swiftly found an experienced replacement. He was able to boost  our son's confidence and was extremely approachable and friendly. A good local service - thank you.'

Thank for your help over the past year, we have received efficient service from Basing Tutors. Simon has been  brilliant with Thomas. He clearly has an extremely detailed knowledge of the subject and he has patiently worked hard to provide Thomas with the confidence he needed. They share the same sense of humour which has been a great bonus!

I would happily recommend Simon as a tutor to other parents.


Steve was great for Tara's confidence and the way he planned the sessions. 


Can I just take this opportunity to thank Basing Tutors and Helen specifically for the excellent support offered for our son. Helen has managed to juggle tuition in two different subjects (English and Maths) with great skill and care, always arriving for a session with a plan and structure set in her mind and a path for the hour clearly defined. Her patience at times has been well tested and she has always taught with a mix of empathy and firmness – never letting a naturally reluctant teenage boy who struggles with maths ‘off the hook’. We now await the exam results with bated breath, confident in the knowledge that if he does pass – we know exactly who to thank! Should we ever hear of other parents looking for tuition for their child, we’ll happily recommend Basing Tutors to them.

We would like to thank Helen very much indeed for working with Oliver.  Oliver can be very shy and quite awkward with literacy and we truly believe Helen has made a big difference and given him a chance with his upcoming SATs


We would like to say Liz has been an amazing tutor and helped Alex get to a level where he should attain the results he wants.


The time that he has had with Monica and Will has been invaluable and is reflected in the grades he is now getting and the feedback from his teachers and both Monica and Will.


We were very pleased with our tuition from Basing tutors. Our tutor was engaging and encouraging and we saw a definite improvement in our sons grades. The tutor was flexible about changing days and around holiday times. I would recommend this type of one to one tuition. 

Thank you everyone

Astrid really liked Dylan and thought he taught her a lot of information  and helped her massively. He is friendly and approachable as a tutor and explains maths in detail in a helpful way. We would recommend him to anyone.


Hi Evelyn

Just to let you know Ryan got a B in his Maths A level, getting an A in his Stats 1 retake

He also got an A in Chemistry and B in Biology.

So he is off to Warwick Uni to study Chemistry and is very happy

Many thanks for all your help with his Maths

Best Regards

Jan and Ryan


Hi Evelyn,


I wanted to let you know that I got an A in my maths A level! Thank you so much for all your help! I am so grateful!


Many thanks,



Thank you for your help with this - I am really impressed with your service.


Hi Simon,

I spoke to Callum shortly after he came out of his exam this morning. He said he thought it went well.

Importantly, he said some questions seemed difficult at first but that he found ways to address them. Both he and I feel that this ability to better understand the fundamentals is a direct result of your tuition.

So thanks for being able to inculcate this appreciation of the subject in such a short time.

We'll be in touch when the results come out.

All the best





 I was very happy with the service we received & would highly recommend it. Monica was very  supportive which really helped Lauren’s  confidence.


With kind regards



I would like to take this opportunity to say how successful and enjoyable the tutoring sessions have been for both Tom and Olivia. I would not not hesitate in recommending your services to others.


Many many thanks to both Andy and Laurence.


Best wishes




Dear Jan,


I would like to thank Sarah for helping my son towards his English GCSEs in 2018.  He always felt supported by her friendly and relevant lessons, which seemed on topic and detailed and gave him more confidence going into the exams.  


Kind regards




Hi Jan,


Sarah was always very enthusiastic about maths and that made me more confident and believe in myself.

Sarah’s tutoring techniques made maths seem easier and Sarah was always such fun to be around.


Sarah was always very helpful and her positive confidence building approach was brilliant for Melanie.

I will make sure I highly recommend Sarah and your company to other parents looking for tuition.

Kind regards,




Simon was a great tutor and had a good relationship with Caleb. He provided the firm understanding of the subject that I think has let Caleb do as well as possible.

He was also flexible in arranging lessons to suit as the exams started.


Jan, thank you very much for your help with Henry we will certain call you again if we require tutoring in the future. (Tutor-Helen)


  •  I just wanted to say what a great experience we have had from Basing Tutors. Our son’s academic confidence has grown with the help of Helen working with him in English and Maths. Helen was always kind, supportive and effective and our son enjoyed his time with her very much. If and when the time arises where we need more support I will not hesitate to contact Basing Tutors.


'I approached Basing Tutors to help my son with a couple of mathematical areas that he needed a bit of extra help with. The one to one time with a very experienced tutor was beneficial in giving that extra targeted support where it was needed. My son also really enjoyed the sessions which were well planned and well structured.'



" Very professional, quick to respond and to locate a local tutor. Each

tutor has offered excellent service and understanding."



We have used Basing Tutors for the last 4 years to support my daughter with the English secondary school curriculum and through to her GCSE and the service provided was both professional and tailored to my daughters specific needs.


I would both use the service provided again and would recommend Basing Tutors to other parents. (Liz)


Liz was great when tutoring Grace and I’m sure her English GCSE result will reflect this. (Liz)


Good morning Jan. Just thought I'd let you know that Ben has passed his Maths exam. Thank you once again for all your help. Steve



Indeed, we have been most impressed with Liz’s approach, well planned in advance, timely, reliable and most critically, knowing her subject matter and exam regime, delivered in a style that reaped dividends in building our daughter’s confidence in the topic, measured by some most unexpected high results for her mock GCSEs - a great boost as the real thing approached. We’re feeling confident that the final results will be pleasing and definitely reflect Liz’s input over the past two years or so.


I’m so glad we were put in touch with you.



We have noticed a difference with Charlie's attitude to English his begun to pick up books and read without being asked, I am hoping that we've turned that corner, Neil and I feel that it's down to you.


July 2017

Hello Jan! Some lovely news. Max passed all SATS! Scaled scores maths 105, spag 109 and reading 115, and he's been selected as one of 5 from school to attend the gifted and talented summer school at Perins because of his attitude, work ethic and resilience! Thank you sooooo much for everything you have done, we couldn't be prouder xx


July 2017

Dave is a very high quality tutor who knows everything you need to know for maths GCSE. He was always very prompt to my maths sessions with him. His methods include using a whiteboard and 'visualisations' in certain questions to help me understand how the maths worked. He worked at my pace of learning, allowing me to stop him if I needed something re-explaining. Along with my tutor sessions he went above and beyond to help me by finding past papers and tricky questions for me to try out, then would go through with me the ones I struggled to answer. After his sessions, from a recent mock result before my GCSEs started, the results had shown he had got me from and 'ungradeable' grade to a level 6. I highly recommend him.



June 2017

I was very impressed with Charlie and his approach to Laila.  His style of teaching style has really suited her.  Whilst I am happy that she seems to genuinely understand maths as a subject matter much more than she did, I am more pleased about her new confidence relating to the subject and I hope this approach continues as she learns.  I would not hesitate in asking him to tutor again - thank you Jan! :)


July 2017

Jack has enjoyed and really improved with Fenella’s help over the last few months.


July 2017

We’ve been very happy with the support from Basing Tutors. Sue and John have been wonderful with Hayley and given her much more confidence and self-belief going into her exams. Fingers crossed for August!



May 2017

Hi Dave! Got my results today and you'll be pleased too know I got in to Loughborough! Got a B in physics, and a C/B in maths! Thank you so much for all your help, I 100% wouldn't have got there without you


August 2017

Ben and I are very happy with the contribution that Steve has made to Ben’s maths studies. At this time we do not know the outcome of the exams but irrespective of Bens’ results this Thursday, I am confident that Steve did all he could and worked hard to ensure Ben had the best chance of success in his maths A’level.


I was particularly impressed with the fact that Steve kept me well informed throughout (even though I was hard to reach on occasions) and kept in touch whilst Ben was in France and followed up with Ben without the need for me or Ben to remind him.  I think he is very reliable and conscientious and kept Ben on track when he wandered off to do something more exciting!


July 2017

Steve was an excellent choice for my child as his patience and examples boosted her confidence no end. At the start of her last year at Costello she was behind in her understanding of maths due to support issues with the school. By the time the exams started she was going into the exams in a positive mood due to having the knowledge of what was expected. The success factor for me as a father was that my daughter was looking forward to the exam challenge rather than getting up in the morning looking for any reason not to sit the exam. A big thanks to Steve and Basing Tutors and look forward to my son receiving help from Steve from this September ready for his exams next summer. Steve was always on time, polite and able to send through lots of suggestions and sample papers.



May 17

Dear Dave, You have made such a difference to Amelia, not only with the factual stuff but in her confidence and with all the hints and tips that you gave her for approaching the exams.  I will indeed keep in touch.


May 2017

'My daughter asked to have a maths tutor to help her in anticipation of her GCSEs. She was not at all confident in her understanding of the maths curriculum a year ago. Steve has gently guided her over that period and her confidence has gradually increased. She faced her GCSE without fear, knowing that she had all the tools she needed. Even her Maths Teacher noticed the positive difference in my daughter and I will be eternally grateful to Steve for what he has helped my daughter to achieve.'





May 17

Hello Jan, thank you so much for an excellent tutor and Shirley has helped with my children's education so much by helping to read and understand pieces of a passage better. Also with mathematical and science skills. I would highly recommend one to one tutoring to parents. Thx.



May 2017

Firstly, many thanks for finding Evelyn. She is a fantastic tutor and exactly what James needs. I hear many “Aha” moments when she’s here. We’re certainly looking to keep her for the rest of this college year, and probably through next year as well.


March 2017

I would have no reservation recommending Steve. He was a very patience and diligent tutor giving our daughter the best possible support for her GCSE Maths. He was always prompt and courteous and was able to work around some of our other commitments. His level of tutor was just right and he really helped to bring out the best in our Daughter.


Thanks Karen 

May 2017

Helen has been of great help  to us and the transformation in our son is remarkable.  Thank you for your services .


March 2017

Monica has been great, lovely lady and a very inspiring teacher which has had a huge impact on Kirstys love for English. Kirstys confidence and understanding has come on so much. Thank you for recommending her.
