The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to build key learning foundations. Our programmes will not only help your child to become a confident learner, they go one step further than traditional maths or English tuition by equipping them with the skills to learn for themselves. Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond, building independence and ability to progress without reliance on a teacher. Our study programmes provide an economical way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future.

At the Kumon Edgbaston Study Centre, we have a dedicated team of assistants with a large proportion having qualifications within the Education sector. We have a highly experienced and ‘Early Years’ qualified assistant who supports our ‘Early learner’ students with developing their number skills, reading ability and pencil hold and control. The students who attend the Kumon Edgbaston Study Centre range from three years old to secondary school age. Our students attend a wide range of schools within the local Edgbaston area extending out into the city centre of Birmingham and Balsall Heath.
My name is Bernadette Quigley and I am the instructor at the Kumon Edgbaston Study Centre. I have a wide range of experience within Education from being a qualified secondary school teacher to managing a pre-school for children ranging from the ages two to four years old. After working at Kumon for seven years, I witnessed many students make great progress and overcome challenges with a positive attitude. Parents would feedback to me that ‘they never thought it was possible’, and it was this amazement in the Kumon Method and programmes that led to the desire to be an Instructor in my own centre.

I have a lot of experience within the ‘Early Years’ levels of the programme and have been able to support hundreds of students learn to read, hold a pencil with control and recognise, write and use numbers effectively.

My favourite part of being an Instructor is observing those key changes where a child has made a real development. An increase in confidence, a boost in their speed or working independently using the examples on the worksheets, are all moments where I can see the first-hand benefits of Kumon.

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.
