Our fantastic tutors get to know your child as an individual

- Strong academic achievers
- Excellent role models
- Background checked
- Ongoing Training & Development
The process of getting to know your child starts from the very first time we meet you at your free in-person assessment. This is an opportunity for us to discuss in depth your child’s educational needs, for you to see our enrichment and tutoring center in action, and to assess the level your child is working at in math, reading, and writing.
Math, Reading & Writing in McKinney
At our McKinney tutoring & enrichment Center, we believe children thrive where they can be fearless.
STAAR & Test Prep
We know that STAAR and test times can be stressful for students, teachers, and parents; but do not worry, we are here to help! At Explore, we are the only tutoring center to offer a stress-free, effective, and totally – Texas focused preparation course which is free for all members and runs from January to April.
We don’t want your child’s only learning goal for the year to be passing these tests, but at the same time, we know that these measures are essential for ensuring future academic success for our students. Our unique approach balances the development of overall student ability with developing strategies and confidence for these tests, while not neglecting or extinguishing the passion of our fearless learners.
We know that you and your child have a busy school year, and look forward to a rest during the summer vacation; but be careful not to take your foot off the gas with learning. Studies have shown that by the end of the summer vacation students perform at least 2 months behind their end of term scores – and that’s not even accounting for the 3 months of progress that could have been made!
Here at Explore we want to be your partner in making the summer an exciting time for growth and improvement, rather than regression. Our unique environment, flexible scheduling, and summer workshops make Explore an exciting place to be during the summer and beyond!

Lisa P, Frisco parent
My 8 year old daughter has been attending Explore Horizons Frisco for about 4 months for help with reading and math. She has already made significant progress in math (now above grade level!) and is making solid gains in reading as well. She was a year behind in reading and is steadily catching up.
The sessions are highly individualized, and she is exposed to many math concepts that she hasn’t even done in school yet. The staff give feedback after each session, and the director does a one-on-one written progress update every two months. This is extremely helpful in tracking progress against state academic standards and grade level performance and in identifying strengths and weaknesses. The staff are all very friendly, encouraging and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Explore Horizons Frisco.
Satvinder Bajwa, Frisco parent
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 🙂
Avellana Marie, Frisco parent
When my son began attending Explore Horizons in Frisco, he was struggling considerably in (middle school) math. He has been attending for about three months now and his grades have improved significantly. He was in danger of failing math for the year. He is currently sitting at 95 and feels a lot more confident about math!
