My name is Masooma Hasan and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Cheetham Hill Study Centre.
Prior to becoming an Instructor, I worked as a teacher for adults in college, as well as a secondary school teacher specialising in ICT.
Like most parents I felt my child had potential and all she needed was someone to help her achieve it. I enrolled her at our local Kumon centre, and within the first year I could see improvements in her study skills, concentration and confidence, and she was now working above her school grade.
I felt as though I needed to re-think my own career and was feeling very optimistic about becoming a Kumon Instructor. Not only had I experienced how successful this programme was for my daughter, I had a dream of seeing other children achieve their goals. In 2012, I decided to hand in my notice and train to become an Instructor; I haven’t looked back since!
I have seen so many children achieve great results on the Kumon programmes. I feel so proud and fortunate to provide children with the chance to make a difference to their lives by helping them to develop good study habits, and to be confident, independent learners.
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.
