About this centre

Welcome to the Kumon Deptford Study Centre.

The centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities; currently, we have students from as young as two, through to those who are studying for their GCSEs, A-Levels and beyond. Students attend the centre on a regular basis and come from various local areas.

The Instructor, Melody To, and the assistants observe the students as they complete their classwork and ensure every child’s time in class runs smoothly. Newly enrolled students are closely observed to develop their independence and self-learning skills.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

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.

Hello, my name is Melody To and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Deptford Study Centre.

I have been with Kumon since 2014 and thoroughly enjoy working with my students and developing them into capable self-learners using the Kumon Method of Learning. As a Kumon parent myself, I enjoy watching my children learn and progress from one concept to another through the Kumon programmes.

I spent several years as a maths and English tutor, including teaching English in Chiang Mai to children from two to 15 years old.

After starting a family, I decided to become a Kumon Instructor, having always been fascinated by the success stories I'd come across and upon hearing the many benefits of Kumon study.

At the Kumon Deptford Study Centre, I greatly enjoy seeing the students working hard and achieving their goals. They continue to amaze me and I am proud of each individual’s work. I encourage my students to keep their worksheets in their own individual folders so they and their parents can see their hard work too.

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to welcoming all students and their families to the centre.

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.
