About this centre
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.
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.

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.
