About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The centre provides a motivating learning environment for students of all ages and abilities. At the Crystal Palace Study Centre, there is a bright spacious classroom, which lends itself to a good learning environment for the students.

Meetings with the Instructor on student progress, work allocation, enrolments and any general issues take place at the centre outside of class hours, by appointment only. There is a strong community approach within the centre and it accommodates students of all ages and abilities, of which many attend a wide selection of the local schools.

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.

Hello I am Helen Sims; I made a very big career change from being a Marketing and Business Development Manager within the professional service industry to become a Kumon Instructor. I decided to utilise my experience and qualification in business along with a diploma in Coaching and Motivation to work for myself and provide a worthwhile opportunity to the community.

I am very keen to be able to work with children of all ages and abilities and I strongly believe that with just a little bit of the right support a student can be nurtured to reach their potential. Some students just need more time to go back over the basics, something which Kumon excels at.

The programme is suitable for all ages, at all levels, from gifted children who want to go further, to children with learning difficulties who need a little bit more help and all those in between. From pre-schoolers to secondary school age and even adults!

For further information or if you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact me for an informal chat.
