Like other tuition providers in the Canterbury area we offer supplementary maths and English programmes to improve academic success, but Kumon is so much more than academic learning; our outlook is to help develop the key study skills your child needs to thrive in school, putting into place skills for life.
From the moment the student sits down in class we focus on concentration, stamina, good study routine, independence of thinking, working at a good pace and rhythm, following instructions carefully and even posture; these are all aspects of learning that help a child reach their full potential.
We have had many students go on to do well in their entrance exams and 11 plus “Kent test”, having developed the complementary study skills at Kumon to achieve success.
The Canterbury centre caters for students of all ages and abilities, from pre-schoolers to teenagers. Students at the centre attend from all parts of Canterbury and other local areas such as Whitstable, Herne Bay, Margate and Ramsgate.
We use a modern and comfortable classroom within one of Canterbury’s leading secondary schools for our classes. The Canterbury Academy is comfortable, well-equipped and easily accessible by car and public transport. There is also a coffee bar area with free Wi-Fi for parents to wait in comfort.
If you are looking for extra lessons for your child we are open twice a week, including Saturday and you will be able to continue the learning at home with daily exercises for the rest of the week.
All the staff at the centre are experienced in supporting children and background checks are in place to ensure their suitability to work with your child.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
