About this centre
The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes offer what traditional tuition gives to your child and more. Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher. Our aim is to help any child of any ability to progress and develop a curiosity and love for learning.
Your local Instructor will set work for your child at just the right level, enabling them to build confidence in their abilities and progress their maths and English skills in small, manageable steps through daily study. They will visit their local study centre up to twice a week for sessions with their Instructor. This allows the Instructor to tailor and adapt each child’s study plan to their abilities, through observing their progress and fluency at each level. Our study programmes are individualised to each child to help them establish strong learning foundations and a positive learning experience, to build skills and confidence for their future.
My name is Helene Anderson, and I am a former award-winning journalist, web developer and pre-school drama teacher. I moved to London from New Zealand in 2001 and have been Instructor of the Chingford Study Centre since 2004.
With three daughters still in education, I have been passionate about all aspects of learning for many years and keep myself fully informed on educational issues and standards in the UK and worldwide. My commitment to ensuring all children have the opportunity to fulfil their educational needs led me to become a school governor in 2008.
Since becoming a Kumon Instructor, I have witnessed the power of the individualised programmes that have enabled students struggling at school to make dramatic progress in both English and maths. Equally, the Chingford Study Centre has always had highly-able students working several years ahead of their school level.
I have assembled a highly-regarded team of dedicated assistants to help me support the students on class days. Outside of the study sessions, I keep parents fully informed of their child’s progress and answer any queries they may have during the week.
Please call me to discuss how the Kumon Maths and English Programmes can help your child.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
