About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The centre has been running with the same experienced Instructor since 1994 and offers maths and English study programmes.

Kumon is suitable for all ages, and the students at the study centre currently range from as young as three to secondary school students up to 17 years of age. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

All of the students in the centre are well supported by the fantastic team of nine class assistants who work alongside the Instructor. The early learners' assistant focuses on the development of these younger students on every class day. There are also different areas in the centre for English and maths study, as well as a quiet assessment area for students who are taking tests.

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.

Parents enjoy the nearby parking area at Asda, which is just next to the study centre and free for up to three hours.

My name is Satomi Shikayama and I am honoured to have had the joy of being a Kumon Instructor for more than 19 years, and to also have had experience as a Kumon parent for seven years, when my son was younger.

I was originally referred to Kumon by a friend who worked for the organisation when it first came to the UK, and I have not looked back since. The prior experience I have as a private maths and English tutor in Japan stood me in very good stead for my Kumon Instructor journey and I have always thoroughly enjoyed working with children and each class day. As they achieve the goals they set out to achieve, they bring a smile to my face.

The biggest joy I feel in my job is when I see the smiling faces of children who have achieved success through independent work at the centre and through being developed by my instruction of the Kumon Method and the support of our team.

The beauty of Kumon, therefore, is that each student learns every day, and I learn as they learn.
