About this centre

Online Class available In-Centre Class available KUMON CONNECT available

Many students at the Balham Study Centre come via personal recommendation from local primary and secondary schools, as well as several private schools. The maths and English study programmes offered at the centre help students of all ages and abilities to realise their potential both at school and beyond. At present, students at the centre range from pre-schoolers to secondary school age students. Many of the students have been with the Balham centre for several years and have grown to work independently and confidently, which has enabled many of them to reach and stay in the top sets at school.

The general atmosphere at the centre is very friendly and students see the Instructor during class for the chance to talk about their current work and goals so that they can be given appropriate feedback on their progress.

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.
