About this centre

The Cyncoed Study Centre has been supporting students in the areas of Cyncoed, Lakeside, Pontprennau, Pentwyn, Llanedeyrn, St Mellons, Lisvane, Llanishen and further afield, for the past 15 years.

Our aim at Kumon is not merely to encourage students to high academic ability through our maths and English programmes, but to instil confidence and independence, born of solid foundations and excellent study skills, which will benefit them throughout all their studies and beyond. 

With carefully trained and DBS checked staff, many of whom have completed the Kumon programmes themselves, we guide students with care and attention to their individual needs.

Our students range in ability from high-flyers who wish to be stretched further, those who want to brush up their existing skills and become more confident at school, and those with special needs and preschoolers. We can cater for all as each student's study is individualised, based on their own requirements.

Walking into a class, you may find three-year-olds being taught individually, a student practising their motor skills, someone practising their reading or times tables and several students working independently in the main body of the classroom.

Following a long and successful career in the civil service, I pursued a childhood dream by going back to university to retrain as a science teacher. I taught in primary schools both locally and in the Vale until, 17 years ago, when I started looking around for something different.

I attended a Kumon information meeting in Bristol, and that's where it all began! After training I opened my own Kumon study centre in  September 2001.

Convinced, after only a few months, of how Kumon was benefiting my students, I gave up teaching on the side for the local authority, and moved my centre to Cyncoed.

I am still in touch with my very first student, a very shy, autistic student of seven years, he is now a successful self-employed professional photographer. His mother, a teacher herself, maintains that it was Kumon which gave him the self-confidence to succeed.
