I welcome students of all ages and abilities from Gateshead and surrounding areas. Students attend the centre for approximately 30 minutes per subject once or twice a week, and class day/arrival time will be arranged at your initial assessment meeting.
The centre fosters a positive, encouraging atmosphere, and focuses on developing excellent study skills as an integral part of the Kumon programmes. As the Instructor I have many years of experience of working with young children and students studying the higher levels of the programmes.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
Following a free assessment your child will begin on the programmes at an individually set starting point, laying a solid foundation for effective learning. Their progress through the programmes will be tailored to their individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve.
My name is Liz Burrin and I have been running the Kumon Gateshead Study Centre since 2007.
I’m proud to be an Elite Kumon Instructor, based on the high quality of instruction and student progress at my centre. I have presented at Kumon conferences to fellow Kumon Instructors and have many awards for nurturing students to completion of the programmes.
I strongly believe in individualised learning and place a great deal of importance on developing strong study skills. I’m fortunate to be able to work with students of all abilities to help them to achieve their full potential.
Every year we recognise the achievements of all students studying at the Gateshead centre at our Annual Awards Ceremony. This is an inspirational and enjoyable event, as we reflect on the hard work and achievements of our students throughout the past year.
I like to keep in regular contact with parents to keep them informed of their child’s progress and all are welcome to contact me at any time outside of class by email or telephone to discuss their child’s progress.
Having instructed my own five children through the programmes I also have a wealth of experience as a Kumon parent too.

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.
