About this centre

In-Centre Class available KUMON CONNECT available Online Class available

The Harpenden Study Centre was established in 1993. Since then, the centre has helped many hundreds of children improve their maths, English and self-study skills.

The centre's youngest student is currently three years old and the oldest student is 15 years old, although Kumon is suitable for children of all ages and abilities.

The study centre aims to provide a warm, friendly and independent learning environment. At least 12 fully trained assistants assist at each class to make sure that our students make the best progress possible.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.

Did you know, you can now study Kumon using digital worksheets? This study centre is proud to offer KUMON CONNECT. Click here to find out more.

About the Instructor

My name is Sabira Moman-Rodwell and I have been a Kumon Instructor since 1998. I used to work in the learning support department of a large school and many of the students I worked with went on to have great academic success in their GCSEs.

I became interested in Kumon when my daughter was four years old. I was very impressed with how the Kumon Method helped her, so enrolled my son as soon as the Instructor would take him – which was at the age of three! As they progressed through the Kumon programmes, I watched as my children grew in confidence, developed good study habits and became more organised – convincing me of the benefits of Kumon Study.

I trained to became an Instructor in 1998 because I wanted to show parents and children how anyone can develop their maths and English skills with the correct direction and practice. My children, now grown up, still say that their Kumon Study is what helped them succeed, not just in school but also in gaining confidence and becoming organised too!

I am a very 'hands-on' Instructor, taking an active role in monitoring, observing, and giving feedback to each of my students in the centre. I am always happy to talk to parents about their child’s progress and ways they can help their children at home.
I look forward to welcoming you to our centre!

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.
