Maths & English in Murrayfield
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 independent or private school.
Our specialist course can help your child prepare for entrance to the following local schools:
- Clifton Hall School
- Fettes College
- George Heriot’s School
- George Watson’s College
- Merchiston Castle School
- St George’s School for Girls
- Stewart’s Melville College
- The Mary Erskine School
Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to private school or independent school. Students on the Entrance Exam 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 entrance exams 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?
Freya Cowan, Parent
The kids have been going for less than a month, but their school teachers have already noticed a marked improvement in focus on their work. Very flexible and friendly.
This is a great place! My kids have been so much more confident since attending!
T. Hardy, Parent
My children have both excelled at school and I have no doubt that Explore Learning is one of the main reasons. Even my children have passed comment on how Explore Learning has helped with their work in school.
