What is online tuition?
Online tutoring at Explore Learning is a highly effective learning experience. Your child has weekly online lessons, working on a bespoke curriculum, supported by a highly skilled online tutor. It’s everything you’d expect from face-to-face private tuition just delivered via live video in the comfort of your home rather than in a classroom or learning centre. We’re delighted to support families with this option for distance learning, meaning that more families across the UK can access the benefits of Explore Learning tuition.

The benefits of online tuition
Learning without limits
We all know that people make the difference when it comes to learning. Nothing can replace the words of encouragement, support and belief that a fantastic coach can provide.
Online tuition has removed the barriers of getting our expert Explore tutors in front of your child. Distance and busy schedules are no longer a problem. We can schedule a time and with only a laptop or tablet your child can be transported into a world of learning. A place where they can build confidence at their own pace, master new skills and develop great learning habits.
What does our online learning involve?
Explore Learning employs industry leading technology to provide a smooth, safe and effective learning experience. Real time tutoring takes place using video calls and screen sharing. Learners work on an adaptive curriculum meaning that the material they see changes to meet their needs. If your child understands a concept, then harder questions are presented. If they find something difficult then more time is spent on practising that skill with a tutor’s support. Feedback for learners is instant, making learning from mistakes quick and easy, especially with a tutor on hand to explain tricky concepts. Children earn rewards, tutors celebrate their success and everyone can see the progress made each session resulting in smiles all round!
Online tutoring for primary
Online tutoring isn’t just great for older kids. Explore Learning has proven that online tutoring can be just as effective for our youngest members from 4 years old and onwards. The key factors are:
- A tailored curriculum – children stay engaged when they have content that is just right. Questions that they feel
confident to try mixed in with new skills that offer a challenge.
- The right support – Explore tutors are great at getting to know your child, making them feel special and cheering them on when things feel a bit tough.
- Seeing the results – everybody loves to succeed. It gives a boost of feel good hormones, so seeing growth every session is really important. With immediate feedback after every question, Explore members are used to seeing the results of their efforts and feeling the joy that comes from mastering something new.
Online tutoring can be a great solution if your child is easily distracted. You can control which area of your home will best suit them for their sessions. It is also great for any child anxious about meeting new people, going to new places or trying something new. This is a calm, stress free approach to giving tuition a go.
Online tutoring for secondary
Online tutoring is often the perfect solution for secondary age learners. They need something quick, accessible and easy to fit around homework and other after-school commitments. Explore Learning’s online support is industry leading. It is unique thanks to the adaptive nature of the curriculum – this means that your child is working on the material that they need to know in order to master their understanding of maths and English. By ensuring a solid foundation in these core subjects, pupils are well prepared for GCSEs or the National 5 exams in Scotland.
Peer learning is also crucial and Explore Learning’s collaborative course, Succeed in Secondary, allows secondary age pupils to extend their breadth of learning by applying their skills to projects such as setting up a charity or designing a product to market.
Online tutoring for 11 Plus
Delivering online 11 Plus tuition sessions allows pupils to gain support whenever they need it. Explore Learning sessions are unique in that they offer a bespoke maths and English curriculum that is accessible 24/7 as well as dedicated classes focused on teaching exam technique, speed and accuracy.
11 Plus exams are designed to test a child’s innate intelligence. They focus on strong maths and English foundations, verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and spatial reasoning. Our online lessons prepare students for CEM, GL or school’s own entrance tests.
Online English tuition
From comprehension to spelling to finding a love for reading again, the Explore online English tuition programme supports learners with their individual needs from the very start of their language journey through to their GCSEs. Supported by UK based tutors selected for their strong academic backgrounds and their ability to teach with energy and positivity, this is the perfect way to meet your child’s English learning goals.
Online maths tuition
Maths is often an area that children find tricky but a tailored approach with the support of expert online maths tutors can make all the difference. Whether it’s times tables, problem-solving, ratio or algebra we cover the whole curriculum in great depth so that your child builds solid foundations to tackle the subject with confidence.
Experienced online tutors
When looking for private tutors, parents tell us that they want someone they can trust. A professional tutor with a proven track record. Children want someone they can trust and also connect with. Learning should be memorable and fun. An experienced tutor can marry both these elements and those are the skills that you can expect from our fabulous online tutor team.
Positive online tutoring experiences
Explore Learning offers everything you’d expect from a face-to-face session with a tutor in a safe, online environment. Our students and tutors connect via live video and together work on a bespoke curriculum fitting each child’s unique needs.

How effective is online tutoring?
In the summer of 2020 the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) conducted an independent evaluation of 1400 learners receiving online tuition in the UK.
They concluded that:
“Learners, tutors and school leads all believed that online tutoring led to an increased enjoyment of learning, more confidence and better subject knowledge.”
Three out of four learners surveyed reported that they now enjoyed learning more than they did before they had online tuition. Additionally, nine out of ten learners felt more confident doing their schoolwork now compared to before they started online tuition. The results of focus groups also revealed that learners felt they had a “better understanding of subject knowledge and key concepts”.
This evidence highlights that online tutoring can be a highly effective way of learning. The keys to success are:
- Good internet connection – without this learning online will be a frustrating experience.
- A great tutor – someone who can easily build rapport with your child and sets out clear learning intentions, gives good explanations and provides appropriate feedback.
- Great learning materials – ideally targeted to meet a child’s individual needs.
- Video – functionality for you to see your tutor and for them to be able to share examples of how to tackle tricky concepts.
As long as you have good internet connectivity we can support you with a highly effective online tutoring experience, where your child will grow in confidence and academic expertise as effectively as they would in a traditional
