Your child is an individual, that’s why our courses are different for every child. There’s no ‘one size fits all’, no magic approach, we just work hard to ensure that we get to know your child and support their growth from the second they step through the door.

Whether that’s stretching and challenging or consolidating core skills, your child will work at a level and pace that’s right for them. No top or bottom groups, no needing to rush to finish or wait for others to catch up; only individual interactions with tutors whose primary aim is to help your child to be more confident, engaged and happy.

Our formula is simple:

Inspiring Tutors

Everyone remembers that person that inspired them, a teacher, a friend, a family member. Someone that changed how they saw things and helped them to see their potential.

Our staff create those inspirational light bulb moments everyday, and inspire children for life.  They are the heart of our company and what makes us unique.

All of our tutors are experts in the school curriculum.

They receive regular training on current teaching methods and are supported by highly skilled centre managers who are often graduates from top universities. Our teams love their jobs and this passion creates a vibrant, positive working environment that children thrive in.

Unlike many other tutoring companies, Explore does not operate a franchise model and directly recruits and trains all staff, which ensures we can provide the same award-winning service across every centre.

Our Curriculum

We know how important it is to get exactly the right balance of resources that will enable a child to grow in their learning and understanding. Our learning programmes embrace the increased focus on technology in education, as well as traditional learning methods.

We value the benefits that paper-based working can bring, such as practising the neatest handwriting or working out your long division.

We use a fantastic online tool called SuccessMaker ®.  This is what allows us to really tailor our tuition to suit your child and offers an effective and reliable way for us to follow their progress. It also means we can share detailed results, keeping you involved throughout every step of your child’s Explore journey. You can even try it yourself at a free trial!

Your Journey To Success

Alongside our teaching methods, our tutors are essential to making your child’s learning a success. They work with a group of no more than six children at a time, so that your child has access to immediate support.

Our tutors also develop each child’s confidence and independence, which directly benefits them back in the classroom. This gives you all the benefits of 1:1 tuition and group tutoring combined.

At Explore Learning we celebrate every child, not based on others, year groups or levels, but based on them.  That’s why we’ve managed to support over 175,000 children to become confident learners who are ready for their next step, whatever that may be.

Don’t just take our word for it, our proven academic and attitudinal results show the difference we make to children. What’s more our awards recognise us as the number one tuition provider in the UK and an outstanding place to work.

How do our current members feel?


I want to commend you and the team at Explore Learning Urmston for the impact you have made on our children’s learning. The girls have made tremendous progress in both their numeracy and literacy skills since joining. They recently started creative writing course and i think this is a masterpiece. Not only are we delighted to see our girls imagining and expressing their thoughts and ideas on paper but also pleased about the improvement in spelling and increase in vocabulary. You guys are tops! Much, much appreciated.

I have been taking my 9 year old son along to the Ashton centre for some time now and I am delighted with the benefits. Shane has difficulties at school and often finds himself distracted and discouraged. The Explore Learning tutors and their methods have the hugely beneficial effects of making learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience which boosts Shane’s flagging confidence. He absolutely loves his sessions and I would recommend this process to anyone, whatever their child’s level of ability. Anna and her team are unfailingly pleasant, supportive and welcoming, both to children and parents and the parents meeting, in addition to the individual session reports, keep us in the loop. 10/10 from me.

Anna Whittington, parent

Before starting at Explore my son was worried about going to school on days that maths was being taught. He had no confidence and wouldn’t raise his hand in class for fear of being wrong. Since starting explore 18 months ago, and having tutors who have time to listen and explain clearly, in a friendly and welcoming manner, he has grown into a confident, well rounded young man who now loves maths lessons in school. He got great marks in his sats, and has worked his way into the top maths class in his year, using the strategies taught to him by the tutors at Explore. His latest report, and expected attainment level is now way above average, across the board. I would recommend Explore to anyone who asked and need to say a huge thank you to the wonderful tutors who work there.They make learning fun and exciting, the way it should be.
