The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities and is run by experienced Kumon Instructor, Odette Wild.
Most students come from the surrounding areas and ages of students currently at the centre vary between four to 15 years old. They range in ability from those dealing with learning difficulties to the most able students and are supported by a team of assistants in a relaxed atmosphere. Class visits normally last approximately 30-45 minutes per subject.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Hello, my name is Odette Wild and in April 2012 I became the Instructor at the Bramhall Study Centre.
My main goal is to develop in every student the love and passion for learning and the skills of independent self-learning to enable them to achieve their maximum potential.
I have an excellent team of assistants who share my passion for each student's progress. They are regularly trained so as to enable them to do their best for the children. They work closely with the students and join me in observing and assessing every child, every time they come to class. Together, we provide relevant feedback to parents.
I work closely with the families, as well as my students. I constantly communicate to parents the progress and goals of their children and provide support as and when necessary. I regularly organise progress meetings with parents to discuss their child's development, their goals, the importance of praise, allowing us to come up with the best solution for every concern they have with regards to their children's work.
I'd be more than happy to discuss Kumon and its benefits with you in detail if you would like more information.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
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.
