The centre has been operating for over 16 years and offers maths and English programmes to students of all ages and abilities, currently from as young as three years old.
Classes are run from St James Church Centre in Stanley Avenue - just off Ealing Road. The church is just opposite Alperton High School on Stanley Avenue.
Students attend many of the local primary and secondary schools in the Wembley, Harlesden and Neasden area. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The centre provides other activities for students whilst at the centre: there is a range of books from the Kumon Recommended Reading List at the centre that students can read to complement their worksheet study and there is also a 'mental maths' area which, when used regularly, may significantly enhance students' mental arithmetic.
Regular parent meetings are held during the year in order to discuss students' progress and to share study projections. All new parents are also encouraged to attend a meeting after one month of Kumon study.
The class atmosphere is enjoyed by students and prizes are presented to students upon completion of levels and also provide other ways of motivating students through difficult times of study.
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.
