About this centre
The centre was established in 2007 and helps students to achieve their full potential in English and maths.
The Allerton Study Centre currently helps a significant number of secondary school students, proving that it is never too late to start the Kumon programmes. Currently, the youngest students at the centre are pre-schoolers and the eldest is in year 11, although Kumon caters for all ages and abilities.
Students are encouraged to attend class twice a week and they receive individual attention from Christine, the Instructor, and her staff of 16 class assistants. At each class, a child studying one subject will be at the centre for approximately 30 minutes, and a student studying both will be at the centre for approximately 45 minutes. The Allerton Study Centre is a drop-in centre so you can arrive at a time convenient for you and your child.
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.
Please note: Saturday class is held at Allerton United Reformed Church Hall, Mather Avenue (corner of Booker Avenue), Liverpool, L18 9TG.

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.
