The Kumon Brixton Study Centre opened in 2012, and offers maths and English programmes for children of all ages and abilities. Currently students at the centre range in age from four to 15 years old.
The study centre is housed in a spacious venue on the ground floor of St Matthews Church, a listed building set in the peaceful gardens near the Ritzy Cinema and the central library, accessed via the imposing red doors. It is a friendly and supportive environment, which allows students to focus and complete their work.
Instructor, Yasmin Fitzpatrick, works alongside a number of assistants who help with marking work, oral reading and student support. The team enjoy working with students looking to catch up with learning, or to move ahead. They are also keen to encourage younger learners, some of whom are learning to read, write and calculate for the very first time.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Unlike traditional tuition, the Kumon programmes aim to foster a love of learning and an enthusiasm which will go on to shape the adult they become.
