About this centre

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to build key learning foundations. Our programmes will not only help your child to become a confident learner, they go one step further than traditional maths or English tuition by equipping them with the skills to learn for themselves. Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond, building independence and ability to progress without reliance on a teacher. Our study programmes provide an economical way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future.

After an initial assessment, your child will follow an individualised study programme with work set at just the right level. They complete daily worksheets building skills and fluency in small manageable steps, as well as attending tuition groups at their local study centre up to twice a week. An Instructor will monitor and guide your child’s learning development to ensure work remains challenging. Kumon study does not follow any curriculum and work is set regardless of age, enabling children to revisit topics or advance far beyond school material without restriction.

Hello, my name is Gillian McAloone and I am the Instructor at Kumon Whickham Study Centre.

I like the Kumon Method as I know that children need strong core skills as foundations of their learning. I love watching children develop into self-confident learners.

Children are all different and Kumon offers an individualised learning programme to each child's ability. Whether your child is struggling at school, or very bright and is ahead of their school work, Kumon offers them the chance to progress at their own pace.

Each child will be able to maximise their own potential. The children study a little every day and all of the children develop their academic ability and importantly self-confidence.
