Launched in 2014, the centre is based at The King’s Centre, a convenient Addlestone location easily accessible by foot, public transport or car. There is disabled access and ample free parking is available at the centre and in neighbouring streets. The study centre has a warm and friendly atmosphere and a bright, modern welcoming interior. There is a separate waiting area for families to sit whilst their children are in class.
The Addlestone Study Centre welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Current students range from pre-schoolers to students at local senior schools.
Led by Instructor Cara, there are seven members of staff, all highly trained and able to support the students’ development, both from an academic and self-learning perspective. The team includes bright, committed students and graduates, all with excellent experience.
A senior staff member is in charge of early learners to ensure direct support, developing the students’ confidence, posture, pencil skills and study skills in addition to the academic skills.
Following a free assessment, students will start studying the programmes at a point that is specific to their needs and ability. Students are required to attend the study centre once a week and usually stay for between 30 to 45 minutes.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child be 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.
