My name is Chrysanthi Sumanasekera.
Being a Kumon parent helped me gain a profound insight into the Kumon programmes and how rewarding they were. When I found my own children benefiting from the Kumon Maths and English Programmes, my passion to become an Instructor increased. The skills my children obtained helped them gain entry into high achieving secondary schools, then onto the University of Cambridge where they studied mathematics and Veterinary medicine. These are accomplishments that I solely believe came from abilities they gained through studying Kumon.
The greatest reward is seeing children advance through each level within the programme. This sense of achievement helps them build confidence equally inside and outside the classroom. Kumon’s flexibility means it can both assist struggling students with school work whilst also providing challenging work outside of the curriculum, engaging advanced students. This is evident, with a majority of my students entering top selective schools. Our highly trained class assistants help me in achieving the goals of Kumon, ensuring every child is an achiever.
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.
