The centre was established in 1993, with the current Instructor taking over the centre in 2013.
The Instructor is supported by six class assistants who are all graduates and support with the marking and recording of students work, working with early learners and newly enrolled students. The assistants are all currently studying the programmes and are, therefore, able to support students with their Kumon journeys.
The youngest student currently studying at the centre is three years old and the oldest is 14, however Kumon is available to students of all ages and abilities. 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.
We have a parent communication book and a post box for any comments to be placed in; any queries or questions that are placed in the post box are followed up after class.
Hi, my name is Yemi and I became the Instructor of the Kumon Wakefield North Study Centre in April 2013.
My nephew has been studying on the Kumon programmes for a number of years and this has given me first-hand experience in seeing the benefits and results of the programmes. Through studying the Kumon programmes, my nephew had the ability to read at a very young age, recited numbers one to 50 very quickly and then started writing the numbers. The reports that he receives from school are always good, especially in maths and English. My nephew often says that he wants to be a doctor or a pharmacist and to achieve that he must always complete his Kumon each day.
One of the things that inspired and motivated me to become a Kumon Instructor was seeing how quickly my nephew’s study skills and confidence improved. Another factor was that I wanted to make a contribution to society and to students learning.
Being a Kumon Instructor is really rewarding and it really motivates me when I see students progressing. The most satisfying thing in life is the opportunity to contribute to the development of others and Kumon affords me this opportunity.
