Established in 2008, the centre is located at St Mary’s in the heart of Acton. Based in the community centre, the class provides a motivating learning environment for children, with a quiet and calm area for students to complete their work.
The centre caters for students of all ages and abilities, with those at the centre currently ranging from nursery age through to Year 11. The majority of students attend local schools as we have seven primaries within one mile of the centre – Derwentwater , Berrymede, St Vincents, East Acton, Southfield, West Acton and Wendell Park.
Although most of our students come from these primaries because of their proximity, we also attract students from secondary and independent schools in the wider area.
There are 18 well-trained assistants from top universities at the centre, who support the student’s development by marking and recording all activity that takes place in the class. The assistants work alongside the Instructor Ryoko Kimura and the senior assistant, who is also fully qualified in delivering the Kumon Method.
The Acton Central Study Centre is located in the heart of Acton opposite Morrisons and has car parking available, as well as tube and bus routes right next to the centre.
The centre has a small seated waiting area for parents and a section dedicated entirely to our early learners who need guidance in establishing good habits from the start of the programme.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
