The Kumon Giffnock Study Centre was established in 2003 and is situated on the south side of Glasgow in the thriving community of Giffnock.
The unique Kumon Maths and English programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. The programmes are suitable for children and young people of all ages and abilities. Currently our students range in age from three to 17 years old.
Instructor, Naureen, is supported by a team of assistants who help to mark, record work and support students with their study skills. There is a separate area for newly enrolled and early learner students.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
To arrange a free assessment for your child or to discuss Kumon further, please contact the centre.
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.

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.
