Stanmore student Sanjni thanks Kumon for her maths success

16 September, 2015

"I am now doing my GCSEs and I am finding it fairly easy since I have covered most things in Kumon."

“I am now doing my GCSEs and I am finding it fairly easy since I have covered most things in Kumon.”

16-year-old Sanjni Bhudia enrolled at the Kumon Stanmore Study Centre in February 2011, starting her studies on level B, where she learnt column addition and subtraction.

Just over four years later and Sanjni has gone through all the levels to complete the maths programme, mastering advanced-level calculus.

Sanjni says: “Before Kumon, I was in the top set in school, but I was probably at the bottom of the set and my mental maths could have been better. I also found that I would not be able to concentrate on work for a long time and one of the reasons why I enrolled on the programme was to improve my concentration levels.

“Kumon has definitely improved my maths by a lot; I am no longer the weakest in my class and my problem solving skills have strengthened. I have also found that I can concentrate for longer.

“I was put in the second set of maths in Year 7 and that knocked my confidence right down. But then I worked really hard and managed to get 100% in my maths tests in class and was moved up to the top set.

“I honestly know that without Kumon I would definitely still be in the second set, if not lower. I then went on to get gold awards in a national maths challenge and also represented my school in a national maths competition. I am now doing my GCSEs and I am finding it fairly easy since I have covered most things in Kumon.

“In school, I have enjoyed the feeling when I understand all the work as I have done it in Kumon. My friends all find the work so hard and I love when I can help them with the work and then that feeling of pride when they can do it as well.

“When I am older I would love to be a doctor and this requires academics, therefore, Kumon will come in really handy. I want to take Further Maths at A-Level, so the fact that I have covered some A-Level maths already in Kumon, should make doing Further Maths a lot easier and more manageable.”
