Welcome to the Kumon Chiswick Study Centre.
The study centre opened its doors in 1994 and provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities; currently the youngest students at the centre are three years old and the oldest are 17 years old.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Over the years the Kumon Chiswick Study Centre has become an essential part of the community. The majority of our students live within the area and attend local schools. Along with the Instructor, Elsie Nassar, the centre’s team of 13 trained assistants are on hand to provide guidance to every student when necessary, although our aim is to encourage independent study as far as possible.
At every visit, students have the opportunity to see the Instructor before they leave, giving them the chance to talk about their progress and goals, and to receive praise for their achievements.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
My name is Elsie Nassar and I have been the Instructor at the Kumon Chiswick Study Centre since 1994.
I have been running the Kumon Chiswick Study Centre for 21 years. Before my job as a Kumon Instructor, I worked in the city for a stockbroker company as the manager of their IT Department. I believe the years spent at the company increased my knowledge of the variety of teaching methods, all of which I have put towards my career with Kumon.
I love the opportunity to be involved with the education of individual students over many years; seeing them develop skills from primary school to GCSE level and beyond is so rewarding.
My team and I work hard to ensure all the students successfully develop their maths and English skills, as well as learn to be confident, independent learners.
I could not achieve what I do in class without the great team I have. One of the real benefits of working with a good team is the collective aim of working towards a common goal. We make a real difference to our students by working together to give our students the best possible learning experience.

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.
