About this centre

Free Registration

The Kumon Bracknell South Study Centre opened in 1998 and since then the centre supports hundreds of students to achieve their full potential in maths and English. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome – most students come from local schools, both state and independent. There centre has separate maths and English rooms, also a waiting room for families and plentiful, free parking.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable students of all ages and abilities to pursue their potential through individualised study. The aim is to develop confident, independent learners. My class assistants are often Kumon students themselves who are studying the higher levels of the maths and English study programme.

Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider; rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who are confident in their ability and so are able to tackle unfamiliar work. The daily worksheet study develops ability and fluency; the students can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond their school level. Kumon offers a cost-effective way to support your child’s progression to a successful future.

Hello! My name is Avril Burrows and I have been the Instructor at the Kumon Bracknell South Study Centre since 1998. I joined Kumon after seeing the benefit my own two children had gained from studying maths at the Wokingham Study Centre.

I have nearly 40 years of teaching experience in primary schools; I have been the Special Educational Needs co-ordinator at a local junior school for 15 years – this has given me extensive experience in helping students to reach their maximum potential, also in advising parents as to how best to support their child.

Kumon is a real team effort, with the student, the parent and the Instructor all working together to achieve success. I believe my study centre is a welcoming and purposeful place; new Kumon families are always encouraged to speak to parents in the waiting room – they are happy to share their Kumon experience with you. I look forward to welcoming you too!

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.
