About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

Kumon study aims to ensure that every child develops a love for learning. We offer maths and English programmes to help students of any age and ability to progress their skills and build key foundations for learning. Traditional maths and English tuition helps students progress, but Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher.

Students complete daily worksheet study developing ability and fluency gradually over time, progressing in small steps and building confidence. They also visit their local study centre up to twice a week for guidance from their Instructor. Your child’s Kumon Instructor will set work at just the right level to challenge and keep them engaged, regardless of age or school year. This means that they can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond school grade level without restriction. Kumon offers a cost-effective and convenient way to help your child build strong English and maths skills for a successful future.

Hello, I am Ruth Mayes and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Holmfirth Study Centre.

Having spent the last 23 years teaching in the diverse communities of North London, I have gained a wealth of invaluable experience about how children of all ages and all abilities learn. During this time, I thoroughly enjoyed being part of many children’s and families’ learning journeys.

I have experienced teaching Kumon students in school and have been amazed at their fluency and accuracy in calculations as well as the level of challenge they can tackle independently.

Not only have I experienced Kumon students in my work, but my own daughter and my friends’ children have been Kumon students and it is through them that I have seen, first-hand, the benefits of daily study. They not only gained academic success - where they were working beyond their school years - but much more. Their confidence when approaching new challenges, attitude and independence increased enormously.

As I am passionate about education and hold a similar philosophy to Toru Kumon, that all children can reach their potential, I knew that opening a Kumon Study Centre was the way forward. Now I can continue enjoying the excitement that academic success and the development of life-long learning skills bring to young people.
