East Kilbride Centre Director
We have a team of dedicated tutors made up of high achieving students and graduates from a number of universities such as the University of Glasgow and Strathclyde. Our recruitment process involves a review of their academic achievements and experience of working with children. Our staff are trained in the Curriculum for Excellence methods and concepts and possess the passion and enthusiasm required to engage and motivate a range of young minds. All staff are members of the PVG scheme.
- Our tuition centre is open 7 days a week
- Engaging individualised courses aligned to the Curriculum for Excellence
- Maths and English tuition tailored to your children’s individual needs
The process of getting to know your child starts from the very first time we meet you at your free trial session. This is an opportunity to discuss your child’s needs and discover the success of Explore Learning.
Maths & English in East Kilbride
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.
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:
- Craigholme School
- Hamilton College
- Hutchesons’ Grammar School
- St Aloysius’ College
- The High School of Glasgow
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.
How do our current members feel?
Would say after extensive research in this area, Explore Learning is in my opinion as good a standard of education a child would receive in one of those establishments. If I could send Lewis every day I would!!
