Hi, my name is Judy and I took over the Kumon Hemel Hempstead Study Centre in April 2016.
I have 20 years of experience as a primary school teacher, which I draw on in my Kumon instruction to ensuring your children make the best possible progress.
At Kumon, maths students are able to progresses from the very basics of counting to calculus and beyond, all without the use of a calculator. English students develop a love of language through exposure to texts of a wide range of genres that are all at exactly the right level for the learner.
I have three grown up children who all studied with Kumon when they were younger and, through Kumon, they were equipped with the necessary skills to pursue their desired lines of study.
I look forward to welcoming new families to the study centre and working with you and your children so they too can become confident, capable individuals.
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.
