About this centre

The Kumon Forest Gate Study Centre caters for children of all ages and abilities, with current ages ranging from four to 17 years old. 

There is a dedicated team of approximately 15 to 18 well-trained assistants who work alongside the Instructor. Together, they work towards maintaining a safe, efficient and effective learning environment to support the students' development and to help them achieve their full potential. 

We are also extremely proud of our popular and successful library which has a wide selection of books including several from the Kumon Recommended Reading List. Additionally, we have special provision for pre-school children to study Kumon on a one-to-one basis (outside normal class times).

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Through daily study of the unique Kumon worksheets your child will strive towards studying above the international standard for their age. In addition to developing academic skills, children develop independent study skills that are needed for school, university, employment and in other aspects of adult life.

My name is Kirti Patel and I have been a Kumon Instructor for almost 17 years and a Kumon parent for approximately 20 years. I am a maths graduate and had been teaching maths at a local secondary school for quite some time before I decided to become a Kumon Instructor.

Having enrolled my daughter to study Kumon maths when she was five years old, I quickly came to see the all-round study skills she was developing through Kumon study, thus enhancing her mathematical ability. As a Kumon parent, I wanted a more active role in facilitating this opportunity to children with varying abilities in the local area.

The most rewarding aspect of my role as a Kumon Instructor is when I witness a shy and timid child blossom into a confident and independent learner, or when I see my students' faces glow with pride upon overcoming difficult or challenging work.
Furthermore, when I hear heart-warming comments such as, "my child is much more confident and happy at school with huge improvements in their school reports since starting their Kumon journey" or simply "I love maths" or "I love reading", it reinforces the reasons why I am a Kumon Instructor and will continue to be for many years to come!
