Established in 2008, the centre provides a motivating learning environment for children of all ages and abilities, with those at the centre currently ranging from nursery age through to Year 11.
The majority of students attend local schools as we have seven primary schools within one mile of the centre – Derwentwater, Berrymede, St Vincents, East Acton, Southfield, West Acton and Wendell Park. Although most of our students come from these schools because of their proximity, we also attract students from secondary and independent schools in the wider area.
There are 18 well-trained assistants from top universities at the centre, who support the student’s development by marking and recording all activity that takes place in the class. The assistants work alongside the Instructor, Ryoko Kimura and the senior assistant, who is also fully qualified in delivering the Kumon Method.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. 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.
My name is Ryoko Kimura and I am the Instructor at the Acton Central Study Centre. I have had a lifelong interest in education.
I managed English language centres in Tokyo for Japanese nationals keen to improve their skills. It was during this time that I became interested in individualised education as the range of abilities in any one class was vast. I was so impressed with the Kumon Method of Learning that I immediately applied and completed my training in 2008 to open my centre.
Helping my students develop and progress in the thriving community of Acton is challenging but always rewarding. I have directly witnessed how powerful individualised learning can be in comparison to a ‘one size fits all’ approach. The system allows me to set work for each child based entirely on their individual ability.
