We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in May. This offer is open to children in school years Reception and below. Places are limited, so give us a call to find out more.
The centre was founded in 1995 and has since been offering maths and English programmes for children in the local area and further afield. After originally operating from community centres and a church hall, the East Dulwich Study Centre recently moved to a high-street location, becoming Kumon's very first permanent premises in London.
Students have a wide variety of choice on which day(s) to attend class. Parents and younger siblings can relax with films, toys, tea and coffee whilst they wait.
We have 15 class assistants and on each class day, there are at least five present in the main class and two in the early learner zone. There are separate classrooms for the early learners and independent learners and classes are held in a quiet atmosphere.
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 Victoria.
I took over the East Dulwich Study Centre in January 2008. As a person, I am a great lover of children. My love for children and the desire to see them achieve their utmost in life were the main factors that made me consider being an Instructor. I saw it as an opportunity to contribute positively to the nurturing of the future generation.
As a Kumon Instructor, I feel very fulfilled when I see students go through the whole journey right from the foundation level through to the point where they have acquired the skills needed for analytical thinking. It is a great privilege to see students set themselves targets to complete the programme and an even greater thrill when one is able to partner with them to do so.
It is therefore my hope that each child entrusted to our care will fully develop in every area of their academic life, attain the highest level of their aspirations, gain confidence and self-esteem and grow up to be a man and woman of influence in society.
Every journey has its own challenges so does the Kumon journey. However, with perseverance and determination, success crowns all the effort.

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.
