The centre was established in 2012 and provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Although relatively new to Lisburn, the centre has already established itself as a key part of the local community, with excellent links with local schools.
Kumon is for all ages and abilities, and the Lisburn Study Centre currently has students enrolled from three to 15 years old. Within the class, there are supplementary maths activities for children to enjoy, as well as a separate reading area. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
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.
The centre hosts regular events like 'family fun days' and competitions to reward students for all their hard work. There are also four assistants who work at the centre alongside the Instructor to support the students' development.
My name is Jennifer Coulter and I have been the Instructor at the Lisburn Study Centre since it was established in 2012.
Before becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked as a teacher for over five years. I have taught history, politics and learning support in a wide range of secondary schools in both Scotland and Northern Ireland, so I have ample experience in working with young people in a wide range of different schools. Developing confidence in children outside of the classroom has always been a big part of my life.
I was motivated to become a Kumon Instructor because I believe in the potential of children, and I have a desire to work with pupils of all ages and abilities. I love being a Kumon Instructor because I get the opportunity to work with younger students as well as those of secondary school age.
The most rewarding elements of my role are watching the children develop and improve, not only in academic ability, but also in confidence. When I hear from a parent that their child has progressed onto a higher reading group in school, or when I see the child being able to tackle a new concept in class with conviction, then I recognise how much that child is benefiting from the programme.
