Explore Horizons is now launching its service in the US for the first time starting in the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex. Explore Horizons Tutoring and Enrichment centers provide math and English tutoring to children aged 5-14, aiming to improve their knowledge, confidence and enjoyment of learning. Each child has a tailored learning program that meets their individual needs and maps to their school Curriculum.

Explore Horizons recruits bright University graduates who want to make an impact as an Assistant Director - both on running our centers as a business, and on the lives of the members who attend.

You will gain broad business experience, learning to promote, market, and sell a new concept in education. You will also learn how to operate a business unit, and be responsible for the recruitment and development of a team of tutors as part of the Management team. We hope you will embrace the opportunity to progress to Center Director within 12-24 months where you will directly supervise staff and have overall responsibility for the Center’s development, operations and profitability.
