The centre was established in 2014. Located at Cosmos Community Centre, close to the town centre in St Andrews, the study centre is easily accessible by car, public transport or on foot. There is a waiting area for parents and siblings on the lower floor. As the class is located on the upper floor, please contact the Instructor, Christine Proudfoot, should your child require disabled access.
The long-term Kumon Maths and English Programmes are suitable for all ages and abilities and, working at their own pace, enable all students to achieve. Progression through the levels is tailored to suit individual needs and begins with a free assessment to set an individualised starting point and lay a solid foundation for learning.
Committed daily study of an appropriate amount of work boosts the confidence and self-esteem of students, as well as helping them to develop good study habits and independence. Your child will strive towards studying above the international standard for their age, enabling them to realise their potential both at school and beyond.
A time-slotting system has been set up for classes, which students may attend up to twice a week. In class, there is an area for new and younger students, where they are observed and encouraged to develop the study skills to allow them to work independently.
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.
