About this centre

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes aim to bring out the best in every child, regardless of age or ability, and help them to reach their potential and foster a love of learning. Through individualised programmes with work set at just the right level, your child will be able to build strong learning foundations, not only developing ability in maths and English but transferable skills that will help them achieve across all subjects.

Children learn through example questions in our worksheets along with Instructor guidance. This method of learning offers so much more than traditional tuition: it nurtures your child’s independence, developing strong self-learning skills to give them the tools to help them excel in the future. Because Kumon does not follow the school curriculum and work is set according to ability, irrespective of age, our programmes allow learners both to fill in any missing gaps in their study foundations as well as the opportunity to work ahead of their school grade level. Your local Instructor will assess your child to determine at what point in the programme they should begin their Kumon study, then through daily work coupled with twice weekly study centre visits, they will build both self-confidence and crucial skills in small manageable steps.

Hello, my name is Penelope Barlow. I am delighted to introduce myself as the Instructor of the Hull, Newland Study Centre and extend a very warm welcome to you and your child.

As a qualified secondary maths teacher, I have come into contact with a number of children who have attended a Kumon study centre to enhance or develop their learning in English and maths. Alongside well-developed study skills and academic ability, I have frequently been impressed by the independence and confidence that these children have displayed in their studies, not only in English and maths, but in other subjects too.

I love working with children, and take great pride in being able to foster enhanced learning skills and academic ability in children who attend my study centre.

By nurturing your child’s good study habits, motivating them to work a little each day and by focussing on the long-term benefits and goals of the programme you will be supporting your child on the road to success. The long-term rewards from completing the programme are the improved study skills and stronger maths and English capabilities we all want to see in our children.

I look forward to being a part of your child’s Kumon Journey.
