Hello, my name is Ros, and I opened the Kumon Grantham North Study Centre in February 2016.
I was initially attracted to Kumon after hearing success stories through friends and family. I saw the benefits of Kumon first hand with my nephew and nieces; their maths ability and their confidence grew quickly and I was impressed that the programme encouraged them to self-learn and tackle problems on their own.
Since opening my centre, I have welcomed and worked with many students, each with their own differing abilities, strengths and weaknesses. I see children who lack confidence in their abilities starting to blossom as they become more assured in themselves; they start to see that with practice, hard work and encouragement they can succeed at school and beyond, and I've seen struggling readers become fluent in a matter of months.
Being a Kumon Instructor is a very rewarding experience as it allows me the opportunity to help children achieve their maximum potential. Seeing children develop by systematically advancing through our programmes is one of the reasons I love my job, and I believe that working together, you and I can support and nurture your child into a very able individual.
I hope to welcome your child to the Grantham North Study Centre soon.
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.
