If there is not a study centre near you, I, Julie Tipper, have been catering for students who wish to study by correspondence since 2000, offering the Kumon Maths and English Programmes wherever you are. I live in mid Kent, but my students live throughout the UK, with contact maintained largely via email.
The study programmes that each student follows are the same, whether studying at a local study centre or by correspondence and my students make excellent progress in the convenience of their own homes.
I post all the materials that students need once a fortnight and the results are to be returned to me weekly by email.
Any questions or problems you may have are discussed either by email or on the phone and students' targets and progress are closely monitored. Maintaining regular, open communication between student, parent and Instructor is vital to make working by correspondence a success.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Fees are £55 per subject per month for students in the UK and £60 per subject per month for students in Europe to help towards the additional postage costs.
