About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes offer what traditional tuition gives to your child and more. Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher. Our aim is to help any child of any ability to progress and develop a curiosity and love for learning.

Your local Instructor will set work for your child at just the right level, enabling them to build confidence in their abilities and progress their maths and English skills in small, manageable steps through daily study. They will visit their local study centre twice a week for sessions with their Instructor. This allows the Instructor to tailor and adapt each child’s study plan to their abilities, through observing their progress and fluency at each level. Our study programmes are individualised to each child to help them establish strong learning foundations and a positive learning experience, to build skills and confidence for their future.

The rewards that I have gained since becoming a Kumon Instructor in 2001 are immense.

After graduating with an honours degree in maths and entering a career in finance, I felt a desire to do something more fulfilling. I returned to university to study a post-graduate certificate in education at Cambridge University and started teaching maths in a secondary school. Sadly, I felt that this was not making the difference that I wanted to make to all students and after some investigation decided to train as a Kumon Instructor. Having taught in a wide range of schools from nursery to sixth form as I grew the centre, I have developed a deeper understanding of students of all ages and abilities, what is expected by the national curriculum and how Kumon study supports this.

From hearing that a student who was 'afraid of maths' has moved up to the top group, to seeing a student already strong in a subject thrive at an exceptional level, whilst developing the life skills to help them through school and beyond is more satisfying than I could have imagined. I am always delighted to hear of students' progress at school, but am no longer surprised by anything I hear.
