Hello, my name is Disha and I have been a Kumon Instructor since 2014.
I am an English Literature graduate and have a background in teaching in a range of settings.
Having left mainstream teaching to raise my own children, a role which I find most rewarding, I combined being a parent with registering with Ofsted as a Childminder. I have cared for a number of children aged one to six, and was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted in my inspection. I enjoyed planning activities for children which also promoted their development in line with the early year’s framework.
I am excited about being the Instructor of the study centre in Farnham and bringing the Kumon Method of Learning to children in the area. As a parent and Instructor, I have seen children achieve so much through following the Kumon study programmes – it is immensely satisfying to see a child tackle a new problem and feel proud that they have solved it through independent thinking. Whether a child is studying maths, English or both subjects, they can become confident self-learners with the guidance that I can provide at the Kumon Farnham Study Centre.
I look forward to welcoming you to our study centre.
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.
