The centre first opened in 2008 and is based in Romford Library which encourages a love of reading in the students.
The Rush Green Study Centre is unique, as every student is allocated an hourly time slot and the maximum number of students attending each hour is no more than 16. There is an excellent student to assistant ratio at the centre; there are four assistants working with 16 students and there are five members of staff including the Instructor.
There is also a special slot for younger learners under the age of six years old, where they can receive one-to-one instruction and guidance. Kumon caters for all ages and abilities, and the current age range at the study centre is from four to 14 years old; although there has also been a three-year-old student attending before. 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.
Hello, I'm Gaitry Bhogal, the Kumon Instructor for the Rush Green Study Centre. I have been a Kumon Instructor for over five years and I thoroughly enjoy my role.
I was motivated to become a Kumon Instructor as I have always wanted to do something through which I can benefit my local community; and I am passionate about helping children to develop into better individuals so that they can help humanity improve in the future!
I have teaching experience in a secondary school and I have completed a degree, a master's degree and a PGCE. My qualifications have helped me to develop teaching skills and the ability to apply knowledge. Another very important skill I have acquired is the ability to work with students of different abilities at the same time; this is very important as a Kumon Instructor.
I am also a Kumon parent. I have two daughters and will be supporting both of them on their Kumon journeys. I have learnt a lot through being a Kumon parent; I can see the challenges and the triumphs, and this has also enhanced my Kumon instruction skills.
The most rewarding element of my role is seeing the light of transformation in children's characters through studying Kumon.
