Kumon is suitable for all abilities and ages, and most of our students attend schools within the area and live in the local community. We currently have students aged between three to 15 years old. Some students have been here for four years or more and some are new. Younger students benefit from the dedicated early learner area and assistants where one-to-one support is available if needed.
There are six members of staff who are passionate about each child’s individual needs and specialise in different roles supporting early learners, or marking and recording class work.
Our students have access to a wide range of books (many of which are on the Kumon Recommended Reading List). 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, my name is Sharon Carlin and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Urmston Study Centre.
Before I became an Instructor I was a primary school teacher and was fortunate to spend five years at Urmston Junior School, which is where I first heard of Kumon. After taking a break from teaching to raise my family, I contacted Kumon and the rest is history!
The Kumon programmes suit all levels of ability and I have seen first-hand how children develop their confidence, concentration and focus as they develop independent learning skills. My role as an Instructor is to help nurture students into confident, independent learners.
The most rewarding part of my role is when I see students, who at first may lack confidence, have poor study skills, poor posture or poor focus, realise they can improve their abilities in maths and/or English. It is extremely satisfying when a child tells me they have moved up a group at school or that they got top marks in their mental maths test. I have students who hated reading and now they always have their head stuck in a book! I have other students who want to study beyond their year group. Moments like this, really make my job so rewarding.
