The Kumon Bath South Study Centre first opened its doors in 2002, and provides maths and English programmes for local students of all ages and abilities.
The centre runs from the Claverton Down Community Hall, next to Bath University. The study centre is spacious and has a calm, friendly atmosphere conducive to study. In addition to a bus stop just outside, there is also a free car park facility for 24 cars. There is also a separate waiting room for parents to use while their child is in class, with a small toy table for younger siblings.
The class layout and structure is designed to suit every aspect of the student’s learning. There is a separate area for English, a section for early learners and an area with a range of books to encourage reading. There is a team of trained assistants on hand who work alongside the Instructor to support each student, ensuring they settle in well and make optimum progress.
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.
The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
