Hello and welcome to the Kumon Flackwell Heath Study Centre. My name is Karen Saunders and I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 16 years. During that time, I have had the pleasure of working with many children, watching them grow both in confidence and academic ability. I love the way the Kumon programmes allow me to treat every student as an individual, capable of progressing at their own pace.
The children who attend my classes range in age from four to 16 and the staff who support me, some of whom are ex Kumon students, have all been fully vetted and trained to ensure that we give each child the support they need.
My centre is OFSTED approved, reflecting the quality of care and support we give to the children who attend our classes. This also has the added benefit of offering parents the opportunity to pay for tuition through either private childcare voucher schemes or through the government’s tax-free childcare scheme.
So, whether you want your child to catch up or get ahead in school, the Kumon programmes can help. Call me to find out more.
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.
