Lockdown and school closures means your child has missed out on lots of valuable school time this year. Yet there is a way to boost their learning, and their confidence … all from the comfort of your own home.

Explore Learning provides award-winning maths and English tuition that is tailored to your child's individual needs and delivered wherever you are, all through Explore at Home.

91% of parents would recommend Explore at Home

The online lessons and tutored sessions have proved VERY popular with our Netmums testers: 91 percent said they’d recommend Explore at Home to their family and friends.

Suitable for kids aged four to 14, their expert tuition is ideal if you want to stretch your child’s learning or catch up on their lost schooling due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Not only do Explore offer tailored online learning, their expert tutors will hold weekly one-to-one sessions with your child each week, ensuring that progress is made towards their individualised goals.

Feedback is provided at the end of each session to parents, keeping you in the loop every step of the way.

  • Three one-to-one sessions held over three weeks;
  • Unlimited access to their own individualised learning course at home, downloadable activities and parent information;
  • Access to live lessons and additional content courses such as 11 Plus/ Entrance exams and creative writing;
  • A parents meeting on the fourth week to discuss their child's progress during their time with us.
