Hear more from the team
I came across Explore Horizons when I started to research further opportunities after having taught third grade for two years post-bachelor degree from The University of Texas. Explore Horizons was exactly what I was looking for; somewhere to enrich my skills in content and curriculum, plus an opportunity to learn and be a part of a growing business through sales, customer service and managing a group of people.
As Assistant Director of the Colleyville location, I work with the local community, schools and the members of our center to build lifelong learners. In the future, Explore will provide me the opportunity to pursue my passion in providing a bridge between local communities and schools.
Being a tutor at Explore gives me so much joy. When I first heard about Explore Horizons and their mission I was drawn to the company. I loved that Explore’s service revolved around helping children to enjoy learning. I have worked at Explore for nearly two years now, and I still look forward to going to work each and every day.
Before working at Explore I had participated in a program called ‘Ready, Set, Teach’ at my High School. ‘Ready, Set, Teach’ is a student teaching program for high school students. The experience that I gained convinced me that I wanted to work with children and that I was good at it. The skills I developed through this program have served me well since joining Explore.
I have become an effective and passionate tutor. I take huge satisfaction from watching the children succeed academically and hearing that their grades are improving, when at the start of their membership they might have felt that things would never get easier in the classroom. As well as tutoring kids, one of my responsibilities at the center is to be the first person that the children and their families meet each time they attend; this has allowed me to develop customer service and relationship management skills. In addition to these responsibilities I’ve been able to get involved in some of the work we do in the community and developed sales skills. I’ve even supported my management team by booking families in for free trials at the center. That is one of my biggest achievements as I feel like I’ve gone from being a tutor who barely knew anything about Explore, let alone sales, to becoming someone who isn’t afraid to approach people and who recruits families to join our service. I can see the way I’m developing amazing skills for the rest of my life.
I have recently set myself the goal of continue my career with Explore as an Assistant Director. When I first started I saw this as a part time job that I could do after school and that I would be good at. But after being here for so long, I still find myself striving every day to improve, both as a tutor and a role model to both the other tutors and the kids. I can see the positive impact Explore is having on me and I don’t want that to end. Explore is definitely a company I want to continue working for. Explore has what I have always dreamed of; a way to help kids every day in their learning and really getting them to enjoy their academics, whilst giving me the opportunity to develop as a professional.
I love working at Explore Horizons because every single day is different. Daily tasks can vary from discussing a child’s progress with a parent, to attending a Chamber of Commerce meeting or Parent Teacher Organization event. The diversity of the role allows you to build on, and acquire new skill sets that are seemingly unique to Explore.
I started as an Assistant Director in August 2013 in our Peterborough center in England, and from there was promoted to become a Center Director in October 2014. That year, I was interviewed to help with the international expansion of our sister company in American, in none other than Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. I have now been a Center Director in our Alliance Town Center location in Texas for 9 months and am enjoying the challenge of growing our center to a new client base and demographic.
As a Center Director, I am responsible for developing two Assistant Directors and aiding the performance of the center through motivating and developing them both. Explore Horizons as a company holds true to its family value, which prioritizes the training and development of our staff. With Head Office based trainings and in-center trainings, the professional development plan that each employee is assigned helps to build skills and knowledge to aid with your successful career pathway at Explore. It ensures that everyone feels confident with the curriculum offerings, and delivering great feedback to parents among many other things.
One of the things I love most about my job is the interactions with people. I enjoy watching a child master a new concept after having been challenged by it the day before, and I love seeing the smile that appears on our tutors’ faces when they are the one to help that child break down the strategy to get to that result. Knowing that my job has impacted both of those lives is an incredible feeling.
Explore Horizons is not only about the people employed, but it is about the people you meet along the way and the contacts you make. This is what gives the company its family feeling. Explore Horizons is about being part of a community and being recognized as education professionals, working alongside schools to help build learning plans for children and constantly adding value to the lives of those we touch.
