Welcome to the Cardiff, Radyr Study Centre.
We adhere to the unique Kumon values and pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence. Following an assessment your child will begin on the selected programmes at an individually set starting point, laying a solid foundation for effective learning. Their progress through the programmes will be tailored to their individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve.
Both the Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes are offered at the study centre and are achievable by all students of all ages and abilities. Our aim is for each and every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to 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.
My introduction to Kumon was through friends of my daughter, I was impressed, not only with their maths and English results but also by their all round study abilities. They all showed a remarkable confidence in tackling new topics, no matter what the subject.
On looking further into the Kumon Method of Learning and philosophy, I became convinced that their impressive study skills were directly related to their time studying at Kumon. In fact, I have become so impressed and convinced that I decided to become a Kumon Instructor and set up my own centre.
I am originally from Melbourne, Australia where I studied science at Melbourne University. I was then introduced to the world of computing through the Shell graduate recruitment programme. I have worked in Australia, the UK and across Europe for different organisations within the IT sector and have often been involved in training within these organisations. In the last ten years I have worked for a company in Cardiff and have, as part of my role, been involved in all staff training and in particular the graduate recruitment and training programme. I relax by playing tennis and more recently have become involved in tennis coaching of young junior players.

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.
