About this centre

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 Kirti Patel and I have been a Kumon Instructor for almost 17 years and a Kumon parent for approximately 20 years. I am a maths graduate and had been teaching maths at a local secondary school for quite some time before I decided to become a Kumon Instructor.

Having enrolled my daughter to study Kumon maths when she was five years old, I quickly came to see the all-round study skills she was developing through Kumon study, thus enhancing her mathematical ability. As a Kumon parent, I wanted a more active role in facilitating this opportunity to children with varying abilities in the local area.

The most rewarding aspect of my role as a Kumon Instructor is when I witness a shy and timid child blossom into a confident and independent learner, or when I see my students' faces glow with pride upon overcoming difficult or challenging work.

Furthermore, when I hear heart-warming comments such as, "my child is much more confident and happy at school with huge improvements in their school reports since starting their Kumon journey" or simply "I love maths" or "I love reading", it reinforces the reasons why I am a Kumon Instructor and will continue to be for many years to come!
