The Kumon Kingswood Study Centre opened in 2012 and offers study programmes in both maths and English for all ages and abilities. The youngest student currently studying at the centre is four years old and the eldest is 14. Many of the students at the centre attend local schools and live within the community, although some travel from nearby neighbourhoods.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each student by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Each session is staffed by the fully qualified Kumon Instructor and specialised assistants, who undergo regular training to enable them to do their best for the students. The staff work together to observe, assess, praise and provide feedback to encourage and guide the students. Feedback is also communicated with parents by phone, email and during face-to-face parent communication meetings.
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.
