About this centre
The Kumon Berhamsted Study Centre has been helping children develop strong foundations in maths and English for over 20 years. Our aim at the Berkhamsted study centre is to help every student achieve their personal target, whether they want to catch up with schoolwork or want to further develop their skills.
The centre is located in the historic Old Town Hall in the centre of Berkhamsted High Street. Classes take place in a lovely, quiet room with lots of natural light and has an area where parents can wait comfortably. There is a calm and supportive atmosphere where students can work safely and thrive. Children start by doing work they are comfortable with in order to build their confidence. They then progress through the topics at their own pace. They are encouraged to work independently but there is always help at hand if needed.
Children typically attend the centre every week for approximately half an hour per subject. Class times are flexible which means you and your child can fit class around other commitments.
It is so satisfying to watch children thrive and achieve results that they never thought they could. I recall a previous student who was convinced she was unable to study maths. Yet, after studying Kumon maths at the centre, she went on to study A-Level maths and then pursued an engineering degree at university. Kumon does not only enhance one’s maths and English ability, it provides children with the essential life skills required to succeed in their education and future careers, and I am delighted to be part of the process.
My passion and experience as a Kumon parent and Instructor have equipped me to inspire and help hundreds of children achieve their potential and I look forward to helping many more.

Most Popular Questions
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.
