About this centre
Online Support Available
Since 23 March 2020, the Kumon Halesowen Study Centre has continued to support existing and new students with their learning in both maths and English.
Kumon study is well suited to home study, as children study independently at home for approximatley 20 minutes a day per subject. Work is set in a structured way, with performance dictating progress. Whilst classes in centre are currently suspended, support is provided on an on-demand basis every day, seven days a week, either through video session online or via telephone call.
New students have an initial assessment to determine which areas of ability need developing. This currently is being achieved through a mixture of videos, one to one video calls and conversation.
If you need a structured approach with support to help your child's learning with maths and English, please contact Sharon Tipton who runs the Kumon Halesown Study Centre on 0121 550 5864.
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.

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.
