The Kumon Loughborough Study Centre has been open since 1998 and is located in the United Reformed Church on Frederick Street in Loughborough.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Students at the centre currently range in age from three to 18 years old and are of all abilities.
Kumon provides long-term benefits to give students the best chance to succeed both at school and in life. Many of the students who have studied at the centre have used the skills they have gained to prepare them for entrance to local schools, achieve good GCSE and A level results and gain entrance to the university of their choice. Other benefits include improvements in confidence, mental agility and stamina.
Kumon students can come to class at any time during the opening hours. There are currently seven assistants working alongside the Instructor, to make sure all the students are fully supported whilst in the centre. A receptionist is on hand to greet parents and students and, there is a comfortable waiting room for parents to relax in whilst their child completes their class study.
There is a work skills table where assistants work more closely with the younger students, and also an advanced maths study table where students have the responsibility of marking their own work (this is overseen by the Instructor).
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
