The centre operates from Pollokshields Community Centre and provides the Kumon Maths and English Programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Students usually attend the centre for half an hour per subject once or twice a week.
It is based at Kenmure Street, close to Albert Drive and well connected by both trains and buses. There's ample free parking available on the streets around the centre.
This centre was established in 2008 and has grown from strength to strength. Presently, it has just over 100 students age from three to 14 years old. Most students attend schools within the area.
The centre has a study hall, of which entry is restricted to students, the Instructor and five classroom assistants. This provides a quiet environment that children can flourish and grow into, encouraging independent learning and confidence. Within this hall, there is a specially designated area for pre-schoolers who require one-to-one attention.
There's a separate parent waiting area managed by a Kumon assistant, which offers a safe and warm environment for parents, guardians and siblings, while students are attending their class. Here, parents can leave messages or feedback for the Instructor and have access to monthly newsletters and holiday forms.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
