Advantages of tutoring

What is a tutoring session and how can it support your child to unlock
their full potential?

Whether it’s in one of our tuition centres or online, your child will always be met with a warm welcome. Our tutoring services always provide a safe space for your child to work towards their academic goals and receive feedback to enhance their learning.

How to find a good tutor for your child:
Our top tips

Identify your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses

Getting to grips with the areas your child feels confident and less confident in, can help you to direct their learning with their tutor from the get go.

If you’re unsure, you can ask their teacher or look at recent school reports to get a gauge of where they’re at. Our trial sessions are also the perfect opportunity to receive honest feedback on your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses and to discuss their needs with us.

Keep your child’s learning style in mind

You know how your child learns best. Finding a tutor to complement this learning style is important so that your child can get the best out of every session.

Our tutors are experienced in getting the best out of your child and know that children learn best when they’re engaged with their learning. That’s why our award-winning approach caters for all different learning styles through interactive teaching methods to ignite their spark, every time.

Consider the tutor’s experience and certifications

Your child will be spending a lot of time with their tutor, so it’s important that you find someone you can trust.

In order to reach their full potential, children need the ultimate cheerleader, someone they can confide in, who understands them – a mentor to guide them, a role model to inspire them. With over 20 years of tutoring experience, we can help your child to believe in themselves and discover the magic of learning.

Get references and recommendations

Asking friends, family and your child’s teacher for their advice and recommendations can support you in guiding your child to the right tuition for them.

We’re trusted by parents and recommended by teachers for a reason. Our proven results and multiple awards will reassure you that we can help your child excel academically, but crucially become a fearless learner who is confident and thirsty for knowledge.

Think about what environment your child works best in

Considering what learning atmosphere is right for your child prior to beginning tuition, can set them up for success.
We operate 100+ vibrant learning centres UK wide, and have adapted our hugely successful approach to give our families the same experience online, with our online tuition service Explore at Home.

Learn what a typical tutoring session looks like and how much it costs

Understanding how your child’s tuition is going to work can support you in reassuring you that you’ve made the right decision and can support your child with feeling prepared.

We know that the dynamic between tutor and student needs to be right.

That’s why we only recruit academic achievers and ensure they are excellent tutors and experts in the National Curriculum, supporting your child to achieve their full potential. We only employ passionate educators and inspiring role models.

Ask if your tutor provides progress reports

Discovering how your tutor is going to relay feedback to you is important for you to stay on track with your child’s achievements.

At Explore, we like to involve both the student and parent in keeping them updated with academic progress. After every session, your tutor will provide tailored, real-time feedback to you and your child, and we’ll schedule regular meetings with you to discuss their progress and plan ahead.
