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 youngest student currently studying at the centre is three years old and the oldest is 17 years old, however Kumon is for students of all ages and abilities.
There are a team of seven to eight class assistants that work at the study centre alongside the Instructor. Many of the assistants are A-Level students and some have studied the Kumon programmes. The assistants support the Instructor and the students with maths and English, oral reading, times table practice and working with early learners.
Newsletters are regularly placed in the waiting area to keep parents up to date with current class news.
My name is Kathleen Wilkinson and I am the Instructor of the Kumon Scunthorpe Study Centre since 2011. When the opportunity came to take over the study centre in Scunthorpe, it was a natural step forward for me to combine my experience and enthusiasm in maths, English and in development and learning with a well-established and effective supplementary education programme. While I was training with Kumon, I worked closely with the previous Instructor in the centre to ensure that I became familiar with the students and parents.
Being a Kumon parent also gave me experience of the Kumon programmes as well as understanding the benefits these programmes can bring. This also gave me a parent’s perspective on studying Kumon which is invaluable in understanding and communicating with the parents at my centre.
And so, with my knowledge, qualifications and experience, combined with my belief in the benefits of the Kumon programmes, makes me an enthusiastic Instructor. I am keen to ensure that all students at the centre experience these benefits for themselves.
