Maths & English in Colchester

At Explore Learning Colchester we understand that your child is an individual, which is why our maths and English programmes are tailored for every child. Crucially, with all of our courses aligned to the school curriculum, you can be safe in the knowledge that our tuition is the best possible complement to your child’s education.

Tuition for every stage of your child’s learning

Whatever stage your child is at, we’re here to provide you with maths and English tuition that can really make a difference. Our tailored approach means we can support children of all abilities – whether gifted and talented, looking for a confidence boost or those with special educational needs.

Expert tutors

All our tutors are experts in the school curriculum and receive regular training on current teaching methods. Our team love their jobs and this passion creates a vibrant, positive working environment where children can thrive.

Journey to success

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 to take their next step, whatever that may be.

11 Plus and Entrance Exams

We have developed an 11 Plus and Entrance Exam offering that is tailored to suit the schools in your local area. We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school, and our tuition is the best possible support on your child’s journey into grammar school.

Our specialist course can help your child prepare for entrance to the following local schools:

Unique approach

Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to grammar school or independent school. Students on the 11 Plus course attend twice a week and also have access to a fantastic online resource, so they can practise unlimited non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions any time they want.

Tailored flexible session

The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core maths and English skills. We use technology that enables us to offer material that is exactly right for your child, and our tutors are on-hand to give individual attention so we can stretch and challenge your child to reach their potential.

Beyond the exam

We don’t believe in simply ‘teaching to a test’ – after all, the test is the very beginning of your child’s journey into their secondary career. To support your child in the run up to, during and once they have made the transition to secondary education, we can continue to support them with the new challenges they face.
