Hello and welcome to Bright Stars Education!

Bright Stars Education is owned and run by Victoria Carlin and Rachel Atkins and is a tuition company based in Hockley, Essex. We specialise in Key Stage 1, 2 and 11+ tuition as well as Key Stage 3 & 4 Maths, English and Science. Bright Stars Education also run a variety of clubs and workshops as well as a wide range of English and Maths workshops for parents.


We are both experienced primary school teachers and between us have over 30 years’ teaching experience covering Reception to Year 6. We have been key members of senior leadership teams with Rachel holding an Assistant Head position for 5 years.

As well as being teachers, we are also mums.

This has put us in the privileged position of being on the other side of the playground.  We have both found in our teaching careers and as mums that parents have a real desire to be able to help their children and sometimes need to look beyond the classroom to do this.  We want parents to feel confident in their choice of tutor and that we will all work together to help your child fulfil their potential.

Bright Stars Education was formed in 2013 from our kitchen tables and allowed us to go back to our roots of teaching children: helping them to progress, develop and grow in confidence as well as having fun in their learning. We now have a team of experienced, qualified and dbs checked tutors all working towards the same goals.

At Bright Stars Education we strive to make our tutoring sessions and workshops fun, relevant and up-to-date. We use a range of different teaching styles and resources to match your child’s identified needs.
