My name is Carmen Garcia and I am the Kumon Instructor at the Wimbledon Study Centre. I feel extremely excited and privileged to have taken over the long established Wimbledon Study Centre and look forward to supporting your children through their Kumon journey so that they can learn to work independently and grow in confidence.
Together with my assistants, my goal for the Wimbledon Study Centre is to provide a happy and supportive environment where the children feel motivated and inspired to learn. By focusing on the core fundamentals of maths and English, the Kumon programmes provide your child with the necessary tools to succeed. Through your children’s achievements in Kumon, I hope to develop self-driven, confident individuals with a passion for learning. I believe these key skills will support your children in all aspects of their lives.
So what qualities do I bring to the Wimbledon Study Centre? I am educated to degree level and have a background in trade journalism. After having my own children I developed an interest in education and over the last few years I have been working at a local school supporting children with difficulties in literacy and mathematics. I have found that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child develop and achieve previously unattainable targets. I studied Mathematics to A-level standard and truly believe that with practice and improved confidence, everyone can develop a love and an enthusiasm for mathematics.
I first decided to train as a Kumon Instructor after experiencing first-hand the benefits of the programme as a Kumon parent. My son benefited hugely from Kumon and is now a very able mathematician who is on track to sit his GCSE mathematics ahead of schedule. I look forward to welcoming you to our centre and supporting you as a parent to help your child reach his or her full potential in both maths and English.
