About this centre
From Saturday 11 January 2020, there will be an additional class day on Saturdays from 9am to 11am.
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.
Whilst I loved teaching, I was often exasperated by the inability of students to have a really good go at solving problems put before them. Even with examples laid alongside exercises, many students struggled to work through the classwork as they lacked the skills to teach themselves. It is these metacognitive skills, such as the ability to self-learn, that the Kumon Method helps students to develop, and is the core reason that I made the transition to become a Kumon Instructor.
At the Kumon Acocks Green Study Centre, I am determined that all students who work through the Kumon Maths and English Programmes will leave the centre well-equipped and ready to contribute to the global community. The centre has a team of assistants who work hard at marking and recording students work. Work is tailored to their ‘just right’ level in order for students to swiftly progress and develop the confidence to study advanced work.
I look forward to welcoming you at the Acocks Green centre.

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.
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 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.
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.
