About this centre

The centre has been opened since the beginning of 2012.

Kumon is suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Currently, students at the centre range in age from four to 18 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident learners through individualised, advanced study. Many Fenham students study both maths and English, although some just concentrate on one subject.

Although the majority of students live in the Fenham area, many travel from areas such as West Denton, Elswick and Westerhope, and other surrounding areas.

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.

Hi, my name is Gill Park and I run the Fenham Study Centre. I have been a Kumon Instructor since 2005 and I am also a Kumon parent myself. My students never fail to amaze me and I love seeing them develop and grow with confidence with each class they attend.

I understand that your child's education is one of the most important things that you will ever consider. At class I cater for many different types of children and with Kumon it really is an individualised programme set at each child's pace based on ability not age or year group.

If your child is bright and keen to study, then I can guide and inspire them through the programmes – some of my students study well above their school level. If your child is struggling at school I will take them back to a point where they are comfortable and confident, and we will work together step by step, tackling each topic as it comes along.

After a number of years on the programme, students are often working above their school levels (even those once struggling) – but remember, Kumon is a long-term programme nurturing the whole development of the child. There is no quick fix.

My role as a Kumon Instructor is very rewarding and my students are an inspiration to me.
