About this centre

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes aim to bring out the best in every child, regardless of age or ability, and help them to reach their potential and foster a love of learning. Through individualised programmes with work set at just the right level, your child will be able to build strong learning foundations, not only developing ability in maths and English but transferable skills that will help them achieve across all subjects.

Children learn through example questions in our worksheets along with Instructor guidance. This method of learning offers so much more than traditional tuition: it nurtures your child’s independence, developing strong self-learning skills to give them the tools to help them excel in the future. Because Kumon does not follow the school curriculum and work is set according to ability, irrespective of age, our programmes allow learners both to fill in any missing gaps in their study foundations as well as the opportunity to work ahead of their school grade level. Your local Instructor will assess your child to determine at what point in the programme they should begin their Kumon study, then through daily work coupled with twice weekly study centre visits, they will build both self-confidence and crucial skills in small manageable steps.

My name is Tayo and I have always had a passion for children so as a result I started my own children's club at the age of 21. When my children were born, I could feel a gap in their education that I wanted to fill. Hence, I put my children through the Kumon programmes. After two years, I had seen my children improve in their studies by giving them the confidence to learn for themselves. Their achievement motivated me to open the Bearwood Study Centre.

Through running the Bearwood Study Centre, I have seen how children can improve in their studies. Students are encouraged to be independent in the centre and improve on overall study skills like concentration and focus as well as learning the core topics of numeracy and literacy. Every child's academic ability is different, but each child has the ability to move forward and progress on the programmes.

A large part of my job is motivation – helping the parents to help their children to achieve their potential. I always say to the children at enrolment that the real reward for their hard work is doing better at school and as soon as they see their improvement, they know it is true.
