About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The Kumon Garston Study Centre was opened in summer 2017. 

Our aim here at the Garston  Study Centre is for each and every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to study.

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 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.

Hello, I'm Mary Phung-Wells and I am the Instructor at the Garston Study Centre. After 12 years of teaching physics in a secondary school, an opportunity arose to start up a new Kumon study centre not far from home. I have always loved working in education and Kumon allowed me to continue that with the focus on developing children as self-learners, at a pace and level that suits them.

My own children are studying the Kumon programmes and they will start secondary school with an advanced level of English and maths which will enable them to excel in all subject areas. They will enjoy school and have more time for extra curricular pursuits because the academic requirements will be met without difficulty. Working things out for themselves will be second nature, and as a parent I know that they will be equipped with the tools needed to be a success at whatever they one day choose to be.

What I believe is most powerful about the Kumon Method of Learning is that it is designed to ensure that children become life-long self-learners, able to deal with the challenges that school and work life will bring so that nothing is ever perceived as impossible or too difficult.
