About this centre
At Kumon, our aim is for each and every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to study.
The unique Kumon programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence. Following a free assessment your child will begin on the 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.
As a Kumon student, your child will develop invaluable study skills and build in confidence as they become an independent learner. Through daily study of the unique Kumon worksheets, your child will strive towards studying above the international standard for their age, enabling them to realise their potential both at school and beyond. In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child will also attend the study centre up to twice a week.
Kumon’s long-term focus provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.
After finishing my PhD in Statistics and Operational Research, I followed my career goal of working in teaching and education. I am a fully qualified teacher and had been teaching maths at a local college for 7 years before I decided to become a Kumon instructor. My tutoring and teaching career has covered primary, secondary and adult education, so I have a wide range of experience.
As a Kumon parent, my three children joined Kumon when they were four years old. I have seen first-hand the transformation in their concentration and confidence level and academic performance as they develop independent learning skills through Kumon study. Kumon has not only helped my elder son to perform in school but also enabled him to get great scores on 11+ exam. My two younger children are at primary school age and are currently studying both the maths and English programmes.
The Kumon programmes suit all levels of ability. Whether your child currently struggles with their work, or is a potential high-flyer, we can help them to master maths and English.
I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of helping children fulfill their full potential. Together as a team, I am confident that we can support your child to achieve success, and I look forward to welcoming you to the Kumon Cheadle Hulme Study Centre.

Most Popular Questions
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.
