About this centre

The Kumon Harborne Study Centre has been running since 2010. During this time we have helped hundreds of students unlock their potential on our maths and English programmes. Kumon is a programme for children of all ages and abilities; currently students at the centre range in age from three to 16 years old.

We have a viewing gallery so parents can observe how we work with students during class. Everything within the classroom is designed to be conducive to learning and our priority always remains developing your child.

Working at the centre we have two Instructors, an office coordinator, a receptionist, one senior class assistant and a team of eight highly trained assistants, all of whom are passionate about the development of each student and strive to provide an excellent customer service to anyone who enquires at our centre.

Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.

Hello, I am Kate and I joined Kumon in 2014 after working within a variety of education roles. My previous experience in education has ranged from working as a lecturer in A-levels and GCSE to tutoring Year 5 students for the 11+ entry exams.

What impressed me most about Kumon was how central its students are to everything that it does. Kumon strives to fit the learning to the child; not the child to the learning, which I feel inspired by.

Instructing students is the most rewarding part of my role. Watching a child learn something for the first time by themselves is just as rewarding for me as it is for the student. Knowing that we have made a positive difference in so many students’ lives makes me extremely proud.
Hello, my name is Harmeet and after graduating in 2011 with a combined honours degree, I began working at the Kumon Harborne Centre as a class assistant and very quickly recognised the benefit Kumon study has on children of any age and ability.

My role as a Kumon Instructor is the most rewarding job I have ever had. Seeing students develop their confidence whilst studying advanced material is incredible and I strongly believe that every child has the potential to learn and improve.

Every child is different and Kumon allows us to offer individualised instruction, pursue the potential of every child, and instil a positive attitude towards learning, all within a highly motivating environment. I love my job and feel a great sense of achievement every day.
