My name is Joanna Miles and I am delighted to be the Instructor at the Basingstoke South Study Centre.
I have twenty years’ experience of teaching all ages of children from Foundation Stage to year six, although predominantly in Key Stage one.
My aim is to develop the full potential of your child and their achievements will be continually celebrated. Guidance, direction, support and encouragement will be given to enable them to progress through the Kumon programmes.
The first time I heard about Kumon was through a child with learning difficulties in my class. He was having trouble accessing the school curriculum and had very low self-esteem. He began the Kumon Maths Programme and it seemed that in no time, all his confidence was significantly improved, and he was much more forthcoming answering questions in class. Over time, his mental maths calculation skills improved, together with his overall ability. He is now one of several children I have taught who have embarked on the Kumon programmes.
I strongly believe that Kumon can fulfil the potential of any child, whatever their ability.
I look forward to welcoming your child to the start of their Kumon journey and unlocking that full potential.
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.
