About this centre
Are you looking for maths and English tuition? Is your child struggling at school, or do they need to be challenged more? Whatever the motivation, the unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
We aim to bring out the best in every child, regardless of age or ability, and help them to reach their potential and foster a love of learning. Children learn through example questions in our worksheets along with the Instructor’s guidance. The Kumon Method of Learning offers so much more than traditional tuition, it nurtures your child’s independence, developing strong self-learning skills to give them the tools to help them excel in the future.
The high number of staff who work in the centre can be easily recognised by their Kumon uniforms and have been fully trained to assist all students from early learners to GCSE students. This ensures all students get the support and guidance needed to ensure they are achieving the very best.
Kumon is a long-term programme so it is never too early to start! If you are interested, please give Karen a call.
Hello and welcome to the Kumon Flackwell Heath Study Centre. My name is Karen Saunders and I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 13 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 has recently become 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 their company or the government’s childcare voucher schemes.
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 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.
