Ability development for any child at any age
Search from over 600 centres in the UK
The centre opened in 2011 and has since then helped many students to pursue their potential and develop their ability. Many of the students come from schools and areas in Guildford, but may also come from further afield, including Farnham, Cranleigh, Horsley and North Hampshire. Students from all areas are welcomed at the centre.
The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages, with students at the centre currently aged between three and 15.
Students aged five and below work in a separate area from the older students, and their study and development is supported by the centre assistant who is experienced in working with younger (including preschool) children.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Hi, I’m Anna.
I have always been interested in education and learning, and passionately believe in the importance of early education in providing the best chance of fulfilling our potential and living a meaningful life.
I have a strong belief that "anything is possible" where learning is concerned, and I was motivated to move into the field of education because I wanted to inspire others with the same feeling. I am myself educated to post-graduate level and have a great love of learning, including learning into adulthood.
I was particularly drawn to the Kumon Method of Learning because of its ethos of encouraging students to become independent learners. I believe that this is where a student finds real fulfilment - not depending on others for their achievements but experiencing the self-esteem that comes from seeing the rewards for their own efforts.
The most rewarding element of my role is to see students benefiting from their Kumon study, particularly when they come into the centre and inform me excitedly that they have achieved something at school that in the past they could not have hoped for.
If you are interested in finding out more about the Kumon Method of Learning, please give me a call and I would be delighted to discuss it further.

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.
