It was whilst working for the School of Education at the University of Southampton that I witnessed the extraordinary impact that a personalised education can have on a child's life chances. It was this commitment to a personalised study programme that initially attracted me to Kumon and to open the Kumon Eastleigh Study Centre.
I am absolutely convinced that children can only reach their true academic potential if they are set work which is individualised according to their specific needs and abilities and which enables them to work at a pace that they are comfortable with.
This approach is at the heart of everything I do at the Eastleigh Study Centre. I want your child to develop into a confident, ambitious and determined young person, ready to make their mark on the world. What better way to begin realising this goal than by transforming your child's numeracy and literacy skills and faith in their own abilities?
The sense of achievement and accomplishment your child will feel will make you very proud! Many of my parents begin to realise that a whole new world of academic opportunities await their children!
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.
