The Kumon Giffnock Study Centre is run by Dr Naureen Baig and her dedicated team of assistants.
The centre has been run by Naureen since April 2008 and has just celebrated their 12 year anniversary. We have a variety of students at our centre with the youngest just four years old who is getting ready for primary school and students who are in their final years of High school looking for that extra boost to achieve the grades they need for the next stage in their life.
Normally we have two separate sections in class; an Early Learner/newly enrolled section and an independent study section. On the Early Learner/newly enrolled section students are guided by the assistants to get the most out of their worksheets and their visit to class. The independent section is where students work on challenging work usually above their school level with support from their Instructor Dr Naureen Baig as needed.
In this challenging time of the Pandemic we are now offering Hybrid Classes. A combination of physical classes and zoom classes.
With the flexibility to just attend physical only or zoom only.
Physical classes are all held following social distancing rules and government guidelines.
Hello, I am Naureen, the Instructor of the Giffnock Study Centre.
In 2008 I was at a stage in my life where I felt the need to do something for myself. My children then were aged 13, 11 and three and soon my youngest would be settled into school life.
My children were then at an age where I have noticed that they needed supplementary help with English and maths and I started to investigate Kumon. I felt like my dream job had been created for me. I could help children with their learning and be confident that the method I was using was solid with a proven track record.
As a Kumon Instructor I am able to help children realise their potential without them feeling pressurised. They are able to reach their potential by learning in an individualised manner, which is ability based and not age based. Everyone's needs are different and Kumon allows me to tailor each programme for each child.
I want my children to have the opportunity to realise their potential in maths and English and as the Giffnock Instructor I will hopefully be able to help your children realise their potential too.
I look forward to working with you and your children.

Most Popular Questions
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.
