Behind every successful Kumon child is a supportive parent and a dedicated Kumon Instructor.
Our students succeed through their own efforts, but that success is made possible by a partnership between the student, their Instructor and their parent(s)/guardian(s).
The work your child studies at home is integral to their success on the Kumon programmes. Therefore, outside of the centre it is important to encourage your child to stay on track and pursue their goals.
By demonstrating your long-term commitment to their learning, so too will they. You can aid the development of their study skills by creating a quiet and motivating environment with minimal disruptions for your child to work in each day.
You will also be required to mark your child's worksheets every day, enabling them to do any corrections immediately so they can learn from their mistakes. You will be provided with answer books to support you with this.
A lot of your child's motivation will come from the success they experience as they become an independent learner, though praise from you will go a long way to keeping them on track.
As with any partnership, communication is key. Ensure regular dialogue with both your child and your Instructor.
Your child's Instructor will set work at the right level of study in order to pursue their potential.
At the centre they will observe your child working, paying close attention to the development of their study skills, their approach to new work, their ability to self-correct and the improvement of their maths and English proficiency. By providing feedback based on these observations the Instructor will build your child's academic and self-learning skills.
The Instructor and your child will work together to set medium-term and long-term goals, with the aim of achieving the greatest results in the shortest possible amount of time.
