About this centre

The study centre has been open since 2006. The current age range of students is from reception age through to students in year ten, although the Kumon programmes are suitable for children 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.

The study centre is passionate about developing independent study skills with all of the students and encourages them to carry out all aspects of their studies independently, though with close guidance from the Instructor and class assistants.

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.

I have nearly eight years’ experience as a Kumon Instructor, firstly as an Associate of Kumon, and then running my own centre.

In that time, I have worked with many students, supporting them with their individual journeys to reach their full potential. I have had 13 completers of the Kumon programmes; and of the four GCSE maths students that I have supported, three received an A grade, and the fourth went from a U to a C grade within one year.

Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked as the course manager and tutor on the Apprenticeship programmes for Warwickshire College, and completed an MA in Educational Leadership and Innovation at Warwick University.

I have two children, both of whom have completed the English programme and are studying the maths programme. I am very proud of my children and firmly believe that it is the skills that they developed whilst doing the Kumon programmes that have supported them to be where they are today as confident, focused young adults who are prepared to take on all opportunities.

I really look forward to working with you and your child to help them achieve their full potential.

Kumon offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.

As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.

Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.

As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.

Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
