I want to do the best I can to help your child realise their inner potential and to instil a passionate attitude towards learning. I want to deepen his/her sense of self-belief, independence and confidence.
Since taking over the centre in 2010, I have recognised my passion for learning and reflected how my own life experience has a similarity to Kumon philosophy. I believe that we all have the potential to learn anything we focus our minds to.
As your child's Instructor, my role is to 'instruct' upon the programme. Each individual child learns via the worksheets using examples and repetition.
Each Kumon child shows great perseverance and patience. They are always respectful and open to learning. They are humble. In our centre, they are always keen to help in the running of the centre whilst their work is being marked. They are the core to the Chandler's Ford centre. The vast majority of children at the centre are now studying beyond their school age; this is a massive accomplishment.
I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to nurture children and this has been possible because of the parents and children who attend my centre.
Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving 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, either in the centre or their online class, 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.
