The centre was established in 1995. The current age range of students at the centre is four to 16 years old, however, Kumon is suitable for all ages and abilities. Many students at the centre have gone onto gain scholarships, pass entrance exams, go on to study A-level maths and go on to use the skills they have learnt at Kumon in further education.
The classes run throughout the year including school holidays and children are expected to study every day and to do their corrections daily too.
Whilst in the centre, children will be observed, guided and if necessary, helped with their work. There are five excellent assistants at the centre who work alongside the Instructor to help mark and assist with these aspects of class.
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.
Hello, my name is Carole Coulson-Gilmer and I am the Instructor at the Haslemere Study Centre.
My attention turned to education when I had children. I saw it as the most important aspect of their lives and felt that helping them to do their best would give them opportunities in the future.
I worked on a voluntary basis at my children’s primary school and found that I really enjoyed helping children develop academically and personally through encouragement and support. This was when I first came across Kumon. I could see how it would help my children reach their potential. Kumon taught my children how to study and gave them extra confidence in mathematics and English.
My assistants and I keep the atmosphere at the centre friendly, and hope that children enjoy coming and find it a rewarding and positive experience. My role is to guide and motivate students through the programmes, and to set goals and targets with them so that the children take some ownership of their own learning.
Progress is always celebrated and certificates are awarded when children move up to the next level. Children get a real sense of achievement as they realise that what they have found difficult today will become easy tomorrow.
Kumon is well worth the investment.
