About this centre

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. The centre offer maths and English study programmes and welcomes children of all ages and abilities. People from all walks of life are attracted to the centre.

The youngest student is under three years old and the oldest is 15. Many of the children have been with the centre for several years and have grown to work independently and confidently. 

There is an excellent team of assistants at the centre, who are regularly trained so as to enable them to do their best for the children. They work closely with the students and join the Instructor in observing and assessing every student at the centre and providing feedback.

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.

My name is Alagu Chidambaram. I was a Kumon parent before becoming an Instructor, as my daughter started doing Kumon when she was two years and nine months old and today, she has become an independent self-learner, with a passion for learning and growing.

As a Kumon parent, I have found that the most important tool in enabling students to achieve their best is to provide relevant and genuine praise for good work. It is very impressive to see how confident they become.

My main goal is to develop in every student the love and passion for learning and knowledge. I make sure I see every student before they leave the class. This gives me an opportunity to appreciate every student for doing good work and also a chance to talk about their goals and areas that they need to focus on. This also allows the student to raise any concerns they have and also for them to share their joy of having overcome their challenges.

Through running my centre, I have seen how much children can improve in their studies. It is very impressive to see their progress when they begin to show commitment towards their work.
