Greetings! I'm Anvar Abdulla, the Instructor at the Blackfen, New Eltham Study Centre. As a former Kumon student and over two decades of experience as a teacher, I’ve witnessed the transformative power of how studying with Kumon develops children into confident, self-directed learners who soar to their highest potential, not just in school but in all aspects of life.
The Kumon Method of Learning had a profound impact on me in terms of academic achievement, self-confidence and determination. During my study of Japanese at one of the Kumon Study Centres in Tokyo, I was captivated by the tailored learning approach that perfectly aligned with my ability. The Kumon Method fosters not only mastery in maths and English but also cultivates the vital skills of independent learning, indispensable at every stage of personal growth.
Witnessing students flourish, radiate newfound confidence and surpass their own expectations is an absolute joy as a Kumon Instructor. My unwavering dedication lies in guiding every student at our centre to unlock their potential, conquer their fears and empower them to their personal and professional aspirations.
If you would like additional information or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. I look forward to the opportunity to guide you on this remarkable educational journey.
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.
