The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Since opening in 2012, the Kumon Erdington Study Centre has nurtured hundreds of students aged three to 16, helping them develop the necessary skills to tackle work beyond their school level. We’ve seen children who lacked in confidence come running into class eager to show off their latest achievement certificates from school.
At Kumon, we realise that each child is different and learns in different ways. The free assessment we carry out provides a starting point appropriate to your child’s current level of ability and identifies any areas needing development. A study plan is then drawn up and, as your child moves through the programmes, their progress is continuously monitored, with the aim of reaching an advanced level.
Students complete daily worksheets and visit the centre once or twice a week, for about 30 minutes. When in class, your child’s study skills are observed and developed in line with the Kumon Method of Learning.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
Hi, my name is Wayne Muddiman and I'm the Instructor at the Kumon Erdington Study Centre.
When I came across Kumon, I was captivated by the idea of a programme that not only enables students to advance way beyond the levels expected of them at school, but actively promotes it. The idea that a student isn't limited by what I, their parents, their teachers or anyone else knows, is what most attracted me to this methodology.
I knew a long time ago that I wished to work in education in some capacity. Initially, I considered continuing my travels and teaching English as a foreign language abroad, or taking the relevant qualifications to teach adults at night school.
I've seen children go from being quite shy, with little confidence, to rushing into class to show me a certificate they've received at school for their latest achievements.
Seeing a child 'crack' something they didn't think they could master or simply having the confidence to answer a question in class, make it all worthwhile. Helping a child develop into an independent learner who has risen to the top of their class at school is incredibly satisfying too.
