The centre which provides maths and English study programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
The centre was established over 20 years ago and it has been run by Instructor Halina Alderton for nearly 12 years. Students can choose to attend either one of two sessions per week, and there are two marking assistants from local high schools at each session, each with an excellent command of English and maths.
The study centre comprises students from various backgrounds with a broad range of abilities and the unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Parents often give feedback to the Instructor about how their son or daughter has been moved to a higher group at school. Every year, several of the students apply for scholarships to local public schools, and to the top universities in country.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
My name is Halina Alderton. I have been a Kumon Instructor for almost 12 years, and before that I was a Kumon parent for almost ten years. The job of a Kumon Instructor is an exciting and energising experience, and I enjoy meeting young, energetic individuals who are willing to learn and to ultimately succeed. Over the years, I have met lots of different children from various backgrounds, and I believe that these experiences have moulded me into a flexible and open-minded person.
Having degree-level qualifications in sciences, and having learnt and taught languages in the past, I naturally took an interest in the Kumon programmes. Soon after enrolling my child in Kumon maths, I started to educate myself in child psychology to satisfy my own personal interests, and in doing so I left behind some pre-conceived ideas. I believe that progressing young individuals' ability in maths and English can have a great impact upon their confidence and ability in both academic and other non-academic areas.
I constantly witness the success of students who, with the Kumon programmes, have had a chance to develop their learning, confidence and independence, to gain a solid foundation for academic success, to build their character through perseverance, and to ultimately realise their full potential.
