About this centre

KUMON CONNECT available Childcare vouchers accepted Online Class available In-Centre Class available Ofsted Registered

Established in 2014, the Kumon Hayes, Kent Study Centre offers individualised maths and English study programmes for children of all abilities. Students, who range from pre-schoolers to teenagers, attend from a wide area of Bromley, Croydon and Orpington.

Following a free assessment, the Instructor, Liz Urie, and her team of fully trained class assistants, look forward to welcoming you to the centre, where your child will begin at an individually set starting point within the programmes.

In class, we will focus on the skills that will help them thrive at school and beyond. Like other tuition providers, we work with your child to build their academic knowledge. In addition, our unique method of learning is designed to help our students’ concentration, stamina, pace, attention to detail and confidence, giving them the skills to think and work independently.

With four class days on offer, children are encouraged to attend the study centre once per week. A further session is offered via zoom each week. Students also receive exercises for daily learning at home for the other days.

In order for each child to maximise the opportunity for learning, we offer enrolment time slots since we have a limited number of places available.

Did you know, you can now study Kumon digitally? This study centre is proud to offer KUMON CONNECT. Click here for more details.

As an Ofsted registered centre, parents can make considerable savings through various schemes.

About the Instructor

Liz Urie - Hayes Kent

My name is Liz Urie and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Hayes, Kent Study Centre. Prior to becoming an Instructor in 2014, I had been a Statistician in the civil service and charity sector. My previous roles in Girlguiding, the HM Treasury and the Home Office have all required me to have a good level of English as well as maths, as they have all involved writing and editing publications which provide data and statistics.

I love learning and aim to encourage all students at the centre to love studying too. They gain so much from the Kumon programmes, not just an enjoyment of maths and English, but also the ability to study independently. I wish I had learnt that skill as a child – at school I relied entirely on my teachers to impart their knowledge and then found I was expected to learn for myself at university. Having learnt the skill, it stands children in a powerful position for both university and their career.

Being a Kumon Instructor is so important to me by giving children the opportunity to gain life skills, master concepts and increase their confidence in their own abilities is extremely rewarding.

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.
