The Kumon Edmonton Study Centre was first established in 1992, and provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Currently students at the centre range in age from four to 14 years old and come from schools in the local area as well as those further afield.
At the Edmonton study centre, we aim to provide the very best service for students and their families. We are a centre of exceptional excellence and continue to develop independent learning in all our students. Students are supported in class by a team of 11 assistants, who have in-depth knowledge and experience of the Kumon programmes. They have been carefully trained to show a duty of care to all students.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
My name is Pew Kan and I am the Instructor at the Edmonton Study Centre.
Before becoming an Instructor, I worked as an engineer for many years, which involved the constant use of high-level maths. As I had a passion for algebra, I was always looking for opportunities to give back to the community, to help others and to help raise the student success rate within my local area.
I had heard about Kumon through my sister-in-law and, after doing some of my own research, I realised that I could put my passion for maths and reading into practice.
The most rewarding element of my role is watching the students develop their skills and progress onto working beyond their school level. It makes me very proud to receive great feedback from past and present students and their families on the support and dedication they have received from myself and my team.
My two children studied Kumon for a number of years and I can certainly say that both benefitted. It has been a joy to watch them grow, become more confident and learn life skills that they will carry with them.
My aim as an Instructor is to provide a consistent and positive environment, and to help each child realise their full potential.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
