Case Studies

  • Name: Adie Pascual
  • Role: Part Time Tutor
  • University: City University
  • Degree: Psychology

"Currently I am in my last year of study, it’s an incredibly busy time of the year. However, I still find the time to work at Explore because I love how the tutor role makes me feel as an individual and an employee."

"One of my passions is working with children with the belief that our investment in them is truly what matters because they are the future and I think most of us want to leave the world a better place. Explore Learning does not fail to always keep my sights on that goal to give children the best tutoring and mentoring that I could give, to make a difference in their everyday lives."


  • Name: Natasha Louth
  • Role: Assistant Director
  • Joined: July 2016
  • University: University of Birmingham
  • Degree: Music and Drama

"The idea of being part of a centre’s success within a small team and making a real difference to families and children’s education in the local community got me really excited. It was genuinely the only job I found that interested me; I couldn’t have been luckier to have landed a graduate job straight from university that I absolutely love and that makes me feel so fulfilled."

"I was particularly impressed by the development offered within the company, the fact that they’re rated in the top 100 companies to work for and by their drive to train all staff to the highest standards."
