About this centre
The Kumon Harborne Study Centre has been running since 2010. During this time we have helped hundreds of students unlock their potential on our maths and English programmes. Kumon is a programme for children of all ages and abilities; currently students at the centre range in age from three to 16 years old.
Everything within the classroom is designed to be conducive to learning and our priority always remains developing your child.
Working at the centre we have two Instructors, an office coordinator, a receptionist, one senior class assistant and a team of eight highly trained assistants, all of whom are passionate about the development of each student and strive to provide an excellent customer service to anyone who enquires at our centre.
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.
Hello, my name is Harmeet and I am the Education Centre Manager at the Kumon Harborne Study Centre. I joined Kumon in 2011 and from the very start of my career at Kumon, I recognised the benefit Kumon study has on children of any age and any ability.
Kumon offers individualised instruction, which allows us to pursue the potential of every child and instil a positive attitude towards learning.
Instructing students is the most rewarding part of my role and I look forward to every class. Watching a child learn something for the first time by themselves is just as rewarding for me as it is for the student and knowing that we have made a positive difference in so many students’ lives makes me extremely proud.
We also have a fantastic team who share a passion for developing children and support me in making the centre a place where every child can learn and grow.
We look forward to meeting you and developing your child to reach their full potential.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
