The study centre was established in 1998, and local Instructor Christine has run it since 2007. The centre supports over 100 students of all ages and abilities, from local schools and outlying areas. It is situated in a large church hall in the centre of Morningside, with on-street parking and good bus connections.
The Instructor and the team of assistants at the study centre are on hand throughout class to offer support and encouragement, and the Instructor makes sure she spends time with each student before they leave, in order to discuss their progress and provide necessary feedback.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Students across the centre have reaped the benefits of improved confidence, concentration, and study skills with Kumon’s help.
Following a free assessment your child will begin on the programme at an individually set starting point, laying a solid foundation for effective learning and thereafter the programme is tailored to individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve their potential through the daily study of the Kumon worksheets and attendance at the study centre once or twice a week.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
