The study centre opened in 1992 and welcomes students of all ages and abilities. The majority of these students live locally and attend local schools.
The spacious building is large enough to cater for all students very comfortably. The extensive car park and friendly waiting area make Kumon visits fun and relaxing for all concerned.
Students at the centre currently range in age from two to 16 years old. Starting from such a young age has enabled some of them to reach the top sets at school and excel in all areas of their curriculum and in their various examinations. 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.
The Finchley High Road Study Centre has become an essential part of the community.
My name is Suika Takatsuka. I'm a graduate from Keio University in Tokyo and I have been a Kumon Instructor since 1992.
I am very committed to ensuring that every child in my centre develops to their full potential. The centre is a friendly environment where students can come along and be supported in their studies. I am also dedicated to getting children off to the best possible start in their education and making my centre suitable for students of all ages.
My assistants are trained to help young students and I have a designated area with suitable chairs and tables for younger learners. I have an excellent team of assistants who also support the older students at the centre.
Each student is given work at their appropriate level and is observed and assessed at each class they attend. Parents are given regular feedback regarding their child's study and I'm available to discuss individual progress with parents.
Through running the Finchley High Road Study Centre, I have seen how children can improve in their studies by giving them the confidence to learn for themselves.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
