The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to develop key foundations for learning. Our unique study method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop ability and fluency before moving on to the next topic. Kumon study is not based on school curriculum or age, allowing children the flexibility to revisit and build skills where they need to and progress beyond school level where their ability allows. Unlike traditional tuition, Kumon study fosters students’ skill in self-learning, building confidence and lessening reliance on a teacher.
Your child will be assessed to enable their Instructor to set work at just the right level for them. Through daily worksheet study they develop ability and fluency. Your child will visit their local study centre for study sessions up to twice a week, where their Instructor will observe their learning growth and set work accordingly. Kumon’s aim is to develop each child into a confident, independent and enthusiastic learner.
My name is Ann O’Neill and I have been the Instructor at the Kumon Bridgend Study Centre since 2013. Previously, I spent 12 years working in education as a teacher and teacher trainer in the UK and abroad.
I first came across Kumon whilst teaching in Thailand with students in my class who were on the Kumon Maths Programme. When I came back home to Wales, and found out that Kumon was also established in the UK, this interested me to find out more about Kumon and become an Instructor.
I found that so many aspects of the Kumon Method of Learning appealed to me through the instant feedback the child receives on their performance every day, how each child works at a pace and level appropriate for them and how they develop the thinking skills to self-learn.
The most rewarding element of my role as an Instructor is being able to see my students grow in self-confidence and sureness in their ability. It’s wonderful hearing stories about how they have been moved onto the ‘top table’ in their class, or even started studying with higher year groups than their own.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child to my centre.
