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

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.

Hi Jan
Thank you for putting us in touch with such an excellent tutor . Steve really put himself out to come over 3 times during James' exam week and he was so engaging with a boy who had really a problem with 'getting' maths. I knew he could do it with the right help and his grade was higher than I expected. Steve was great at communicating with us on the maths and on his availability. 

Many thanks again for finding us such a fab tutor

“The service was very professional. The tutor who was suggested for AS level Chemistry was ideal, exactly what I was looking for, and managed to inspire my daughter in her study of Chemistry this year. I would certainly recommend this service to other parents.”

“Dear Jan, Yes we were very happy with the service provided. Even better, we have heard from the French and Maths teachers at school who have both said they’ve noticed a huge improvement in his confidence and motivation. ”

“I contacted Jan because my 7 year old son was struggling with literacy at school and his teachers suggested further support was needed. After a quick and warm response to my enquiry, Jan quickly booked us in for an initial assessment and we then agreed a tutoring programme to met his specific needs. My little one loves his weekly sessions with Jan - they are fun, focused and extremely productive. Jan plans the time specifcally for his needs and he soaks up all the attention and advice - perfect 121 tutoring. Jan uses a broad mix of tools -from iPad apps to board games - in her sessions, so she makes learning intuitive and fun. In just 3 months my sons literacy skills (reading, comprehension, writing, spelling) have improved by a whole year. Amazing progress. My sons confidence has grown immensely and it's lovely to see him enjoying reading, writing and spelling - he's now the champion at scrabble and hangman at home - and regularly gets 8 out of 10 in the weekly spelling tests at school! Thank you Jan, your support is invaluable.”
