About this centre

Kumon study aims to ensure that every child develops a love for learning. We offer maths and English programmes to help students of any age and ability to progress their skills and build key foundations for learning. Traditional maths and English tuition helps students progress, but Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher.

Students complete daily worksheet study developing ability and fluency gradually over time, progressing in small steps and building confidence. They also visit their local study centre up to twice a week for guidance from their Instructor. Your child’s Kumon Instructor will set work at just the right level to challenge and keep them engaged, regardless of age or school year. This means that they can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond school grade level without restriction. Kumon offers a cost-effective and convenient way to help your child build strong English and maths skills for a successful future.

Hello, my name is Sophia Mekuria and I am the Instructor of the Sheffield, Hillsborough Study Centre.

I have two children of my own who both study the Kumon programmes. Their education has always been important to me and I witnessed first-hand the crucial benefit of Kumon in ensuring that they are fully supported with their school work. I found this really rewarding and it instilled a passion in me to want to support children in my local community. Becoming a Kumon Instructor has enabled me to offer this support to both children and their families.

I took a career break with the birth of my two children and have worked as a volunteer in a local school where I participated in educational activities and school trips. I have also given many presentations to the students on several topics relevant to their educational development.

It is really rewarding for me to be able to motivate the students at my centre and see them grow in confidence and develop as they master a new topic. It is also important to me that students have a strong support network both in the study centre and at home as this really helps with their confidence and the progress that they make.
