The Forest Hill Study Centre opened in 1993 and offers supplementary maths and English programmes, which are suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Currently students at the study centre range in age from three to 16 years old. Some of the students are starting their A levels, and others are currently at various stages in primary school.
There is a welcoming reception area with dedicated staff who exchange homework and answer enquiries from parents.
The Forest Hill Study Centre is fortunate to have a large number of assistants. They range from students who have studied the programmes to adult staff, most of whom have had children studying the programmes. This gives us a large base of knowledge of all aspects of the maths and English programmes, which we can share with our students and their families, thus helping them to get the best from the supplementary education.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
I have been running the centre since 1993 and I am impressed with the way Kumon can help students of all abilities and ages. It is great to see students’ progress in confidence and ability as they work through the programme.
I saw an advert for Kumon when my daughter was six and thought that it would be good for her. She had attended a Montessori nursery school and I was keen that she would fulfil her potential at school – and it looked as if Kumon would fit the bill. There were no local centres at the time, so I opened one. Kumon worked well for her – she managed to obtain a scholarship to a local independent school and kept up with the other students, many of whom had attended local prep schools. She studied maths at Oxford University and now has a job in the city.
As I was a Kumon parent, I understand the joys and frustrations that this can bring. It can be hard trying to encourage your child to work daily, balance all the activities and maintain a positive environment, but I know the benefits perseverance will bring.
