About this centre

The centre was established in late 2002, and is now a thriving and important part of the local community. It provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities in a friendly, relaxed but studious atmosphere.

The centre is run by Instructor Sara Bradley. Students at the study centre are from various backgrounds, with and without specialised needs, and live predominantly in the local area. Students at the centre are currently aged between four and 16 years old.

Some students study maths, others English, but a growing number of students study both subjects. 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.

Hello, my name is Sara Bradley and I have been a Kumon Instructor since 2000.

Living out in the Middle East for a number of years, I was often approached to teach English privately as well as in schools and the local community centre. I did this as a hobby; the joy of seeing students achieve was payment enough. Having a growing passion for education and an increasing awareness of its importance, I enrolled at college as a mature student to gain a teaching qualification on my return to the UK.

From my teaching experiences in primary schools, I realised that many children struggled with basic mathematics and comprehension skills so began searching for something that would offer support for such pupils. That was when I first heard about Kumon. The more I learned about Kumon the more excited I became, that yes, this was what I was looking for!

Visiting Kumon headquarters, learning about the individualised aspect to study and working through the programmes only served to convince me that Kumon could actually help children at every level, whether they were weaker students, average but with ambitions or high-fliers who wanted to excel.

It is so rewarding to celebrate my students achievements.
