The Kumon Hatfield Study Centre opened in 2008, offering maths and English programmes to students of all ages and abilities.
Children work quietly on their work, taking 15-20 minutes per subject. Work is also taken home to be returned on the next visit when it is checked and recorded. Guidance is given to each student as they progress through the topics. Children are given work according to their level, extending their skills and stretching their knowledge in maths and English whilst becoming confident, independent, self-learners.
Students on the English programme also read text aloud. Maths students are tested on their arithmetic skills. At the end of each level an achievement test is taken and a report on the result is sent home.
Students are given regular feedback on their progress in class. Every year we hold an Awards Ceremony where we celebrate our students' achievements, give awards and motivate students to be ambitious in their learning. This is a lovely event for parents and students when individual achievements are recognised and praised.
Welcome. My name is Helen Hudson and I run the Hatfield Study Centre.
I have always had a love of maths which resulted in completing a maths degree and working in engineering at the start of my career. Reading has been a favourite hobby of mine since a young age so I wish to inspire children in both maths and English.
Since opening my centre, I have learnt so much, not only from my own study but also from the students themselves. The worksheets can be challenging and I do my utmost to guide the students through until they have mastered the relevant skill. I am often amazed at the children’s ability and the progress they make because it is often far greater and faster than I would have imagined possible! I am passionate about providing every child with the very best instruction to ensure that they will progress and succeed.
My role as a Kumon Instructor constantly rewards and motivates me, especially when I see the progress of my students who often tell me they have been moved up a set or have won a maths challenge or an English award.

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.
