My name is Anjana Sohal and I have been an Instructor since February 2015. I set up and established my first Kumon study centre in Essex before deciding to relocate to Surrey to take over the Frimley study centre.
It was my knowledge and experience in the education sector which motivated me to begin my journey with Kumon. Having worked with children with special educational needs in schools was a challenging yet rewarding experience, but it gave me an insight into the importance of individualisation. Each child is given their own starting point in the programme and they develop at their own pace with the right tailored instruction.
Seeing the smiles on children’s faces when they have tackled a difficult question independently or when they achieve one hundred percent in their classwork is what motivates me every day.
I want to ensure that each student at the Kumon Frimley Study Centre is valued and supported to enable them to reach their potential. As well as tailored instruction, I hold regular progress meetings to discuss each student’s past, present and future progress and goals. It is important that we continue to work together to ensure your child is getting the appropriate support and develop a positive attitude towards studying.
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.
