About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to build key learning foundations. Our programmes will not only help your child to become a confident learner, they go one step further than traditional maths or English tuition by equipping them with the skills to learn for themselves. Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond, building independence and ability to progress without reliance on a teacher. Our study programmes provide an economical way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future.

After an initial assessment, your child will follow an individualised study programme with work set at just the right level. They complete daily worksheets building skills and fluency in small manageable steps, as well as attending tuition groups at their local study centre up to twice a week. An Instructor will monitor and guide your child’s learning development to ensure work remains challenging. Kumon study does not follow any curriculum and work is set regardless of age, enabling children to revisit topics or advance far beyond school material without restriction.

My name is Christine and I took over the Kumon Oxford, Headington Study Centre in January 2014.

I became a Kumon Instructor because I saw the difference Kumon had made to my daughter and how the programmes gave her a good foundation in maths, particularly mental maths and a love for reading. I watched her excel not only in maths and English but also in her ability to manage time.

Prior to this, I was a teacher and head teacher for 20 years in Africa, Australia and England and realised that a good grounding in maths and English was absolutely essential to the future progress of children of all abilities.

I am also a foster parent and all my foster children have gone through the Kumon programmes and have been surprised at their own abilities as they improved, became engaged at school and began to move up sets. One child made two years progress in six months and was moved out of special needs.

The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the children develop confidence and become independent learners. Together with an excellent team of assistants (most of whom have either done Kumon or are parents) we ensure each child reaches their full potential.
