Established in 1997, the thriving centre provides the Kumon Maths and English Programmes.
Close to St Richards, Central and Kingsham primary schools, and near to Chichester boys' and girls' schools, children also come to this study centre from Emsworth, Bognor, Selsey, The Witterings and nearby villages. The centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential.
Children attend the centre once or twice a week, with some students having studied at the centre for seven to eight years, so there is always a wide range of ages at the centre.
As well as the Instructor, there are class assistants who have a firm understanding of the Kumon Method of Learning and help support students to become confident, independent learners.
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.
Hi there! My name is Patricia Dack and I have been the Kumon Chichester Study Centre Instructor since 2010.
I joined Kumon as a senior class assistant when my eldest daughter was attending Kumon to improve her maths ability and increase her confidence. She started Kumon at age six. After seeing how Kumon could change a child’s attitude to a subject they previously disliked or struggled with, I decided to train as an Instructor.
Being a Kumon parent, I can offer advice based on my own experience of the study programme. It has been really rewarding to enable so many children to progress and achieve where they previously may not have. The change which occurs in a child as their confidence grows and they begin to understand is really good to witness.
At my weekly classes, I always look forward to hearing about students’ exam results and how they have progressed at school. It is satisfying to hear that pupils have moved up a set, won a special prize or are just enjoying their learning for the first time. Through meeting each child regularly at class, I get to know them. This helps me to individualise their daily Kumon study plan to produce the best results for each student.
