Welcome to the Kumon Broadstairs Study Centre, which offers maths and English programmes to children of all ages and abilities. Our students come from pre-schools, state and independent schools across Thanet including Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Margate, Birchington-on-Sea, Westgate-on-Sea, Ash, Deal and surrounding villages.
Similar to other tuition providers, the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go further by developing children’s independent study skills and confidence. This has helped many of our students to perform well in their 11+ and entrance exams, and been essential for GCSE, A-level, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child can attend the study centre up to twice a week. Experienced staff support every student, from early learning to guidance on more advanced topics. Your child’s free assessment will help to determine an appropriate starting point and initial study plan. Progress through the programmes is tailored to the individual, ensuring each student continues to grow and achieve.
I’ve been a Kumon Instructor since 2007, helping over 400 students to develop their maths, English and study skills.
Having experienced the progress that students make, I particularly like the way that Kumon provides individualised study. This differentiation allows students to cover each topic effectively, mastering it before moving to the next level.
My reward is seeing students complete work at a higher level than their peers, and watching their confidence grow as they become independent, mature, learners. As a parent, I understand what's involved at home as well.
I discovered Kumon when my daughter needed help. At the time, my work involved developing national schemes to improve accessibility to learning, so I was particularly interested in Kumon’s individualised approach. As I am also a qualified teacher, specialising in English as a second language, and with experience of dyslexia, it was somehow inevitable that I became a Kumon Instructor.
I can't deny that Kumon study requires effort and commitment but it works. Giving a child a good education is vital to give children access to the opportunities and choices that will enable them to live a successful life.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
