The Droitwich Study Centre opened in November 2014. We cater for students of all ages, each of whom will complete an individual assessment and will be set work appropriate to their needs which they complete with the support of three assistants plus the Instructor whose role is to aid their development.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
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.
My name is Sacha Elsey. I have been a Kumon Instructor for three years having come from a background in mainstream education, where I taught 11 to 19 year olds for twenty years. My experience as a teacher, where I had to cater for children of all abilities in one classroom, provided me with invaluable experience and skills that I could transfer to my centre.
In the time I was teaching, I found myself teaching many aspects of the school curriculum beyond my own, including fundamental aspects of maths and English. This led me to explore other aspects of education beyond traditional classroom teaching and in doing so, I became aware of the Kumon programmes and investigated them further. Liking the idea that children of all abilities could extend their learning beyond their school age through independent learning, whilst increasing their confidence along the way, I decided to apply to become a Kumon Instructor.
The joy of success on a child’s face when they realise they have achieved something they either weren’t aware they were capable of, or didn’t believe they were capable of, for me, makes taking on that responsibility worthwhile.
I firmly believe any child can prosper, given the appropriate guidance and support in an environment conducive to their learning.
