Meet Frankie Owen
Part Time Tutor
They say if you choose a job you love you will never have to work a day in your life. Explore learning has certainly delivered; I love my job and feel honoured to be part of such a motivating and supportive team. With very little experience, I was attracted to Explore Learning for the regular training that the company provides, allowing me to not only grow in my role as a tutor but also as a person. As a child who often underestimated their own ability; the idea of helping children to unlock theirs was very appealing and something I now do every day. Helping children to accomplish difficult concepts such as time and learning to read is the most rewarding aspect of the job and seeing a child’s face after achieving their goal is unforgettable. Building strong rapport with the children in your centre is my favourite part of the job as not only do you then see progression in their academic ability but also socially. Being a role model is really important and by making learning fun and exciting, the children can flourish and achieve their goals.
Explore Learning is a positive and energetic environment where everyone strives for the best; not only for themselves but also for each other. Having a managerial team who are invested in their employees as individuals as well as tutors through regular support and tutor socials allows us to become a strong team who provide excellent service to their customers. Some of my key achievements throughout my time so far as a tutor are delivering additional content courses such as the 11+ and Creative Maths as well as going outside of the centre to provide community workshops to children in the local area. Throughout my time at Explore Learning, I have developed my communication skills, being able to communicate ideas to children as well as providing feedback for parents. Explore Learning has unleashed a new found sense of confidence within me and I am looking forward to what my future at the company entails.
