About this centre

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. The youngest student at the centre is currently five years old and the oldest is 12 years old, however the Kumon programmes are suitable for students of all ages and abilities.

The study room can be easily located by the A-frame outside of the venue and the leaflets and roll-up banner in the reception/waiting area. The study room is clearly sign-posted from reception.

Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies. The Instructor is supported by a class assistant who works with newly enrolled students and early learners. The class assistant also supports with the marking and recording of students work.

There are supplementary activities in the centre such as Numberboards, as well as a selection of books available from the Kumon Recommended Reading List.

My name is Paul Daglish and I am the Instructor of the Darlington Study Centre.

I applied to become a Kumon Instructor as I am very committed to ensuring that each and every child is able to develop their full potential. Having worked in an education background for a number of years, I have experience of working with students of all ages and abilities and have provided academic and pastoral support.

I was interested in the Kumon programmes because they offer the opportunity to every child to work at their own pace and their own level of understanding and this is something that I believe is invaluable in supporting a child’s education.

I find my role as a Kumon Instructor extremely rewarding and I love to hear how students have progressed in school through their work at Kumon. I attend ongoing training sessions that are provided by Kumon to ensure that I can fully support all students that attend the centre.

My aim for the Darlington Study Centre is to promote a nurturing environment of growth and understanding for my students. The centre enrols students all year round. For further information, an informal chat or to visit the centre, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
