Our Approach

We believe that the summer is a fantastic opportunity to maintain the progress made during the school year, acquire new skills, and explore new areas beyond the school curriculum. While other student’s are forgetting what they have learned, your child will be moving forwards and getting ahead! With no school, the pressure is off, but it is important to maintain good learning behaviors, so you can kick-start the new semester in August.  Explore students are fearless learners and are ready to succeed from day 1 in the Fall.

At Explore Horizons, we help students all year round, in a unique learning environment that supports school work, but doesn’t feel like school.  Providing a motivational learning environment is even more essential during the summer, as we don’t want learning to be a drag! We maintain all that is central to the service, but we also switch it up with some unique summer offerings including our member-only workshops, our summer Book Club, and personalized summer learning goals to prepare for the new grade.

oUR Environment

Children learn best when they are engaged and comfortable.  This is particularly important during the summer months, as we don’t want our members to feel that they have traded school in for something that feels just like school.  Our centers have a fun, vibrant environment which sets us apart from other tutoring options.  Explore centers are lively,  and full of positive energy, but most importantly, they’re a safe place where our members can feel at home.

Central to our company visions and values is ensuring that everyone feels part of the Explore family: Our members, parents, staff, and communities. Our centers are welcoming homes for children, regardless of their ability, and our staff are always on hand to offer a listening ear and expertise to ensure we are delivering an outstanding, tailored service to every parent and child.

We’re confident that from the moment you step into one of our centers, you’ll see how our approach can make a meaningful difference to your child. Why not schedule a free in-person assessment to see for yourself?

Our curriculum 

Our summer learning programs embrace the increased focus on technology in education, as well as retaining effective traditional learning methods. Group work in our specialist courses also brings about the collaborative learning that makes the whole process fun and engaging.

We use a range of fantastic online tools which allow us to really tailor our service to suit your child.  Our tools offer an effective and reliable way for us to track their progress. It also means we can share detailed results, keeping you involved throughout every step of your child’s Explore Horizons journey. Our tutors also work with a group of no more than 6 students at a time, so that your child has access to immediate support but can develop their confidence and independence too.

In addition to our personalized math, reading, and writing learning plans, we also offer a range of skill-based workshops throughout the summer, focused on preparing for the upcoming grade. These interactive group classes are a great way to introduce new concepts or revise existing ones, in a way which is a break from the norm and lots of fun! We offer a minimum of 10 options for every one of our members, with everything from phonics to essay writing, shapes to probability.

At Explore Horizons we celebrate every child, not based on their peers, grade level, or test scores, but based on them as a person.

Explorer Horizons are the best learning centers in the DFW metroplex by far. My son was not his age and grade level before he started. He was also struggling to pass a private school exam to get admitted. The managers and tutors from the Garland location are the best!! They helped him so much he is now in his age and grade level. Not only that but he passed the exam with the help of the Explore Horizons team! Thank you so much you guys!! I totally recommend it to everyone..what are you waiting for? Get your free trial today! 🙂

Mr Rachid, Garland Dad

My eldest went to Explore Learning in the UK and she thoroughly enjoyed it and it really helped with her at school, so when we found Explore Horizons, which is a sister company, opened right down the street here in Frisco we had to sign up both our girls!  They are thoroughly enjoying the learning experience and the staff are just brilliant!  Each and every one are very professional and friendly and are always cheerful .  They have really helped both of my girls a great deal.  When your kids ask to go to tutoring, you know its a great place 🙂

Satvinder Bajwa, Frisco Mom

I cannot say enough good things about this place! I brought my 9 year old son here, because he was having some difficulty in 3rd grade. His confidence was down and there were some gaps in his knowledge base. The professionals at Explore Horizons were not only able to diagnose his areas of need, but they were able to focus on specific skills that he needed help with. He has actually shown documented growth in very specific areas! The programs that they use are tied to the TEKS — and so are perfectly aligned with what is being taught in the classroom. They are always very sweet to all the children that attend the sessions — and they made my son feel loved and welcomed on each visit. They actually know my son’s name and educational needs on each visit! My son always wants to go to tutoring without complaint — AND we can go at anytime we want — there are no scheduled times required! It is an awesome center run by caring and loving people with a top notch set of programs offered in all critical areas of study. I would sincerely highly recommend this program to any family with a child that needs extra help or even to just get ahead! You will not be disappointed.
