The centre opened in 2009 and provides maths and English study programmes to children of all ages and ability. There are currently approximately 70 students, some studying single subject but most studying both subjects.
Working alongside the Instructor are a team of six assistants. The friendly and professional team runs a well organised centre with close attention to detail to ensure that each student's needs are understood and catered for as they develop through the programme.
Timeslots are allocated to ensure your child's learning is as enjoyable as possible; to keep them motivated and to achieve their long-term learning goals. The Instructor provides feedback, encouragement and a tailored plan to help each student excel.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
Once a fortnight, there is a mobile library service opposite the centre on Beechglade Road.
My name is Narjis Shah and I am the Instructor at the Handsworth Wood Study Centre.
I graduated with a politics degree in 2001 and later went on to get my Post Graduate Certificate, Post Graduate Diploma and finally my MA in Human Resource Management with accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
I first heard about Kumon in 2003 when my nephew was studying the programme. I had seen the benefits of Kumon and was excited to learn of an opportunity to become a Kumon Instructor. As a parent, I am conscious that my children feel confident and inquisitive at school and I have seen the benefits of this with the Kumon programmes.
Furthermore, as an Instructor I still get a thrill seeing children learning by examples with simple instructions, bringing their learning into action. I nurture by not telling a child what to think but how to think. I have always had a passion for education and love to see children do well not only academically but also in personality, through encouragement and support.
