The Kumon Marton Study Centre opened in 2007 and is run by Jayne Moffat, an experienced Instructor. The majority of Marton students study both the Kumon Maths and English Programmes, though some concentrate on one.
The study centre is based in Marton Community Centre, in light and airy rooms with appropriately sized furniture for both older students and younger students alike. There is a waiting area for parents and a free car park.
The Instructor is supported by a team of five classroom assistants who undertake a number of duties to support students' development. Two of these assistants have studied the Kumon programmes themselves to the higher levels. A dedicated assistant also works closely with our early learners to provide guidance and support at all times. All students are observed closely and given support as, and when, required.
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 centre offers individual, worksheet-based study programmes in maths and English for children of all ages and abilities. There are currently over 100 students studying at the centre with an age range of four to 16 years. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
