The centre opened in 1999 and has earned itself a fine reputation within the local community for its contribution to the education of hundreds of local children. Consequently, many families register their children onto one of the Kumon programmes following a recommendation from an existing customer at Halesowen.
Children of all ages and abilities attend the centre, with many making Kumon a way of life through both primary and secondary school. The longest standing student has attended the Halesowen centre for ten years and is now able to work with competence and confidence with both maths and English.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
I have been a Kumon Instructor since October 1999, when I opened the Halesowen Study Centre.
I read about Kumon in The Daily Telegraph and decided to find out a little more about it as I had a young child who had been diagnosed with dyslexia. The key elements of the programme - completing a small piece of work every day, with a set starting point and practicing topics until they are mastered - really appealed. So, the application was made, and the Halesowen Study Centre was born.
Since that time, I have developed a wealth of experience with the Kumon programmes and have enjoyed success with hundreds of students, each with their own differing abilities, strengths and weaknesses.
Both of my children have worked through the Kumon programmes and I also have extensive experience not just as an Instructor but as a parent of Kumon students. I know how important it is to establish a daily routine and sometimes how difficult it is to maintain that routine. I can identify with parents' joy when they achieve success and conversely can identify with parents as and when they experience a problem.
As an Instructor, I am exceptionally well placed to help and support all of my Kumon families as they progress on their own Kumon journey.

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.
