About this centre
The Kumon Dunstable Study Centre offers both maths and English study programmes. In comparison to other tuition centres, Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work independently. Our aim is to help any child of any ability to progress and develop a curiosity and love for learning.
The centre opened in August 1999 and has been part of the community ever since! Classes are run from a room in the local Salvation Army and provide a comfortable setting for parents and students alike.
Work for the students is set 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. 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.
Classes run twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. Attending class allows the Instructor to tailor and adapt each child’s study plan to their abilities, through observing their progress and fluency at each level.
After obtaining a Law degree, I discovered a passion for teaching; working part time at six Kumon centres over nine years. This led me to start my own tuition business whilst also maintaining my love for Kumon, as I continued to work as a senior class assistant at the Dunstable study centre.
I pride myself on my ability to bring the best out of children, using Kumon and my knowledge to help children flourish, gain confidence and develop self-discipline. From running my own tutoring business, I understand that each child has individual learning processes, and I find it rewarding to help children reach the stage where they can finally say “I did it!”
I ensure to discover each child’s potential and enable them to maximise their abilities in maths and English.
I look forward to welcoming you soon.

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.
