My name is Dalia Carter and I would like to welcome you to the Crawley, Tilgate Study Centre.
Before becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked in finance. I loved anything to do with numbers, so much so that I also studied to be an accountant. Although I enjoyed working in this field, I needed something that challenged me but also incorporated the things I loved doing such as working with numbers, reading, and seeing children eager to find out and learn about everything around them.
So, I decided to open a Kumon centre in Crawley, Tilgate. I enrolled my own children, not only to help them develop study skills, but to be able to see how they progressed through the worksheets and what skills they needed to prepare them for the subsequent levels.
My centre grew to 100 students within the first year, mainly through recommendations. I have now helped over 1000 children with their maths and English and I feel honoured to have helped so many children gain the confidence to work to an advanced level, sometimes up to three years ahead of their school level.
I am proud to be a Kumon Instructor and I thoroughly enjoy what I do. Please get in touch to find out how I can help your child become the best they can be.
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.
