The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes offer what traditional tuition gives to your child and more. Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher. Our aim is to help any child of any ability to progress and develop a curiosity and love for learning.

Your local Instructor will set work for your child at just the right level, enabling them to build confidence in their abilities and progress their maths and English skills in small, manageable steps through daily study. They will visit their local study centre up to twice a week for sessions with their Instructor. This allows the Instructor to tailor and adapt each child’s study plan to their abilities, through observing their progress and fluency at each level. Our study programmes are individualised to each child to help them establish strong learning foundations and a positive learning experience, to build skills and confidence for their future.

Hi, my name is Yoko Kaji-McLaren and I am the Instructor at the Finchley East Study Centre. My experience with Kumon started a long time ago as a Kumon student when I was a child in Japan.

When my children started Kumon, they were studying worksheets according to their ability and not their age, which allowed them to catch up at school and boost their confidence. After several years in the programme they are no longer struggling but excelling and studying at levels a few years ahead of what is expected of them according to their school ages. This happened because their self-learning skills have been developed through the daily worksheet study and their tailored learning.

My motivation has been to make a difference to the future of as many children as possible. I really enjoy watching my students become more confident individuals and independent in their approach to their work. I have seen many students enjoy reading much more and a lot of parents are delighted by the big improvement in school reports and exam results.

I hold progress meetings annually, but parents are welcome to contact me at any time outside of class by email or telephone to discuss their child’s progress and pose any queries they may have about their development.
