Explore was born out of a desire to help parents and children gain access to the benefits of a great education.

As a dad of 3 and a school Chairman, our founder Bill Mills knew that sometimes children need a little extra help to thrive academically, and that in parents, there is a deep need to contribute to their children’s education and to give them the best chance in life.

So in 2001 Bill’s vision for Explore became a reality, accessible to all young learners regardless of their means, background, or ability. Our first tutoring center opened near London in the United Kingdom in 2001 with a handful of brilliant people, high hopes, and a bagful of energy and passion. It was an instant success.

Soon word started to spread, and the demand for new centers grew.  By 2013 we knew it was time to expand internationally, and after researching opportunities across the world, we decided that the United States was the best place to continue our educational mission.  In 2014 we launched our first US center in Colleyville, Texas, and now we have over 120 centers in the UK and 5 operating across Dallas / Fort Worth.






Everyone remembers that person that inspired them, a teacher, a friend, a family member. Someone that changed how they saw things and helped them to see their potential. Our tutors are the heart of our company and what makes us unique. Everyday they create inspirational light bulb moments, motivate children to become hungry for information, believe in themselves, and pursue knowledge with the confidence of a fearless learner.

Flexibility of the membership

Parents tell us they love the flexibility of the membership, the way our learning courses are individually designed for their children, and that the feedback they receive means they know exactly how their kids are doing. Most importantly of all, children made incredible academic progress and flourish into fearless lifelong learners, which makes us very happy! For us, it’s a huge privilege to be able to work with a child and see that light bulb moment, that moment when they just ‘get it’. That light bulb moment is why we’re here, and it is the starting point of seeing a child progress.  Those light bulb moments are different for every child, and that’s why we offer individually tailored development programs that are unique to each child’s specific needs and learning style.


Explore is designed to be the best possible complement to a school education; whether they are striving for success in elementary or preparing to excel in middle or high school. Our courses map to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills framework, and our curriculum includes math, reading, writing, STAAR prep, and study skills; all of which are adapted to the individual needs of each child.

We’ve been doing this a long time, and we know how to deliver optimal results. Want to see what all the buzz is about? Come and see us for a free in-person assessment, and find out how we can nurture the fearless learner in your child.
