About this centre

Welcome to Kumon Small Heath Study Centre which was established in 2013. The venue is easily accessible from both Coventry Road and Hob Moor Road.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. We have been privileged in that time to help develop students of all ages and abilities using the Kumon Method of Learning.

Students currently range in age from three to 16 years old, and are supported in their learning by a well-trained team of up to nine assistants and the Instructor. The class is a focused learning environment with an emphasis on the development of each students’ study skills, independence and resilience in order to take full advantage of their learning at all stages of their learning journey.

My name is Saika Ismail and I am the Instructor at the Small Heath Study Centre. I was a science teacher and subsequently Head of Science in the secondary sector with experience of teaching to A level standard and an examiner for 20 years. Having achieved a master’s degree in Education, my passion for teaching grew.

I was so impressed by the structure of the Kumon programmes that I decided to enrol my son. I saw him grow in confidence with each month of study and become more motivated and focused to learn independently. As he matured, he became less reliant on his class teachers and saw himself as a successful student. His achievements motivated me to become a Kumon Instructor.

I watch students develop their stamina, speed and accuracy in the context of the Kumon Maths and English Programmes. The light bulb moments where a student is able to resolve a difficult question or when the students report back “I think that’s so easy now” is a big achievement.

I feel so fortunate to be able to offer Kumon to so many local students and watch them develop and grow through the programmes, just as my own child has done - I actually can’t think of anything that is more satisfying professionally.
