About this centre

  Two-week Free Trial available

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to develop key foundations for learning. Our unique study method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop ability and fluency before moving on to the next topic. Kumon study is not based on school curriculum or age, allowing children the flexibility to revisit and build skills where they need to and progress beyond school level where their ability allows. Unlike traditional tuition, Kumon study fosters students’ skill in self-learning, building confidence and lessening reliance on a teacher.

Your child will be assessed to enable their Instructor to set work at just the right level for them. Through daily worksheet study they develop ability and fluency. Your child will visit their local study centre for study sessions up to twice a week, where their Instructor will observe their learning growth and set work accordingly. Kumon’s aim is to develop each child into a confident, independent and enthusiastic learner.

Hello, my name is Kelly Skinner and I am the Instructor of the Kumon Whitley Bay Study Centre.

In 1996, I graduated from the University of Sunderland with a degree in teaching and have been teaching in a primary school for 18 years. I have worked with students of all ages and abilities and have taught all curriculum subjects.

I decided to become a Kumon Instructor after seeing the huge difference that the Kumon programmes have made to my daughter. The maths programme has helped boost her confidence and develop the right study skills to help her tackle challenges with independence. She loves being able to work out calculations by herself, giving her a great sense of achievement.

Many of the students that I have worked with have lacked confidence and struggled at school and I have found it really motivating to see these children improving and achieving in their studies as a result of their hard work. I look forward to the students sharing their school success stories with me and to see how proud they are of their own achievements.

I look forward to welcoming families into the centre and setting the children off on their Kumon journeys!
