What to look for in a maths tutor



Meet our expert maths tutors


Meet Casey

It is amazing to see each child make positive relationships with the subject and build upon their skills to complete tricky questions they never thought they could.

I bring my own passion for maths into tutoring by engaging children and making sure they are having fun too!

Meet Kim

I love teaching maths to kids.

When you see them glimmer with understanding and you hear ‘I get it!’ It can be the most rewarding. That’s what teaching is all about.

How to help your child with maths


Be their biggest supporter

First comes confidence, then comes success.  Encourage your child to overcome challenges and to see them as an opportunity to learn something new!

Understand the curriculum

Understanding the curriculum and what your child needs to master at each age can support their progress. We can support you with that!

Encourage independent
thinking & learning

Support your child to revise and go over newly learnt skills solo, then ask them to show you their work after. This method encourages children to take control over their own learning.

Promote applied maths

Once your child has the basics mastered, focus on working on applied skills, putting their core knowledge to use in real life scenarios such as baking or reading bus timetables.


Benefits of maths tuition for children


Encourages self-belief

Children thrive when they have self-belief.  Our maths tuition encourages a growth mindset which can support your child in accomplishing great things. 

Creates long-life skills

Our award-winning hands on approach combined with our engaging digital tools help your child to build life–long skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking.

Improves concentration

Our membership provides unlimited access to your child’s engaging, tailored learning program, giving them the opportunity to learn independently and without limits.

How effective is tutoring?

We may be a bit biased when we say… incredibly effective!

We believe learning starts from a place of self-belief. What have our students achieved? Well, it’s so much more than just good grades. They developed confidence, positive thinking, and a good attitude to learning new skills.

My daughter has improved in maths so much since the tutoring has started.  The tutors are friendly and make you feel very comfortable and I’m overall very happy.

Parent from our Cheltenham centre

They have excelled in giving my son confidence to tackle difficult maths questions and have really empowered him to converse with both children and adults.

Parent from our Hampton centre

Pre-Covid my daughters had both lost their confidence in maths.  Kathryn now loves even double maths and Lucy reports much improved test scores from school maths tests.

Frequently asked questions
about our maths tuition


Does tutoring improve grades?

Change doesn’t happen overnight, but tutoring can significantly increase children’s maths skills, social skills, confidence levels, and help them reach their full potential, which are all correlated with achieving better grades.

Generally, students who practice more and have more confidence in their abilities tend to perform better for their class. You can read more about the impacts of tutoring and its efficacy on children’s development in our recent study with The Institute of Education and The University of Reading.

How much do maths tutors cost?

We offer a diverse range of memberships for maths and English tutoring to meet different families’ needs.

Membership prices typically differ based on their frequency per week. Our memberships start from £99 per month.

How long should a tutoring session last?

All of our tutoring sessions last for one hour. At Explore Learning, we believe it is important to integrate both maths and English in the tutoring sessions for children to practice both skills during their lesson. This teaching method has proved successful with children who are less or more confident with certain skills over the others, since it gives them a chance to take breaks from focusing on one subject for too long.

How do you assess maths ability?

Our brilliant learning tool, Compass, is designed to assess students’ maths and English abilities and adapt the curriculum to suit their needs. The tool is not meant to have certain standards that students need to attain, but rather create a bespoke learning programme to meet the child’s needs.
