About this centre

The centre has been running in Archway since 1994 and provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities; currently the youngest student is three years old.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

The majority of the students at the centre are studying at a level which is six months or more ahead of their school level. Their parents have often commented on how their child's confidence and attitude have developed positively through their Kumon journey.

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.

There are about equal numbers of maths and English students and the centre has developed particular expertise with students whose first language is not English.

There is a dedicated team of multi-lingual young assistants, most of whom have gone through the Kumon programmes themselves. The centre has considerable experience in working with young learners, from nursery age onwards, many of whom develop into long term success stories through Kumon. Many of the students attend schools within the area and live locally.

Hi, i'm Oliver Allam and as a former Kumon student, I can vouch for the amazing benefits of the Kumon programme. The positive effects of Kumon go beyond excellent academic abilities in maths and English and include the development of many other important skills such as problem solving, study attitude and the ability to learn quickly.

The Kumon programme is tailored to the individual needs of your child, whether they are struggling or excelling academically. Children are all unique and they learn in different ways and speeds and Kumon works for all children irrespective of their age/ability. The skills they develop through their work at home and in class ensure they can take the initiative with their own learning and then become good independent learners in the future.

There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing children get smarter, more independent, and more confident in themselves. Learning never stops and this includes myself as the Instructor! Every day is a new day, where we can improve ourselves and work towards becoming the best we can be.

Most Popular Questions

Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving 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, either in the centre or their online class, 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.
