About this centre

The centre opened in 1999 and has earned itself a fine reputation within the local community for its contribution to the education of hundreds of local children. Consequently, many families register their children onto one of the Kumon programmes following a recommendation from an existing customer at Halesowen.

Children of all ages and abilities attend the centre, with many making Kumon a way of life through both primary and secondary school. The longest standing student has attended the Halesowen centre for ten years and is now able to work with competence and confidence with both maths and English.

Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

I have been a Kumon Instructor since October 1999, when I opened the Halesowen Study Centre.

I read about Kumon in The Daily Telegraph and decided to find out a little more about it as I had a young child who had been diagnosed with dyslexia. The key elements of the programme - completing a small piece of work every day, with a set starting point and practicing topics until they are mastered - really appealed. So, the application was made, and the Halesowen Study Centre was born.

Since that time, I have developed a wealth of experience with the Kumon programmes and have enjoyed success with hundreds of students, each with their own differing abilities, strengths and weaknesses.

Both of my children have worked through the Kumon programmes and I also have extensive experience not just as an Instructor but as a parent of Kumon students. I know how important it is to establish a daily routine and sometimes how difficult it is to maintain that routine. I can identify with parents' joy when they achieve success and conversely can identify with parents as and when they experience a problem.

As an Instructor, I am exceptionally well placed to help and support all of my Kumon families as they progress on their own Kumon journey.
