The Kumon Hemel Hempstead Study Centre has been running for more than ten years. During this time, hundreds of students have made phenomenal progress in their maths and English skills and have notably increased their confidence.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon is a programme suitable for children of all ages and abilities, and current students at the centre range in age from three to 16 years old.
The centre provides a calm and productive learning environment for the students. Working alongside the Instructor are two experienced class assistants, dedicated to helping new students master their study skills, and three assistants who help mark the students’ worksheets.
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.
Hi, my name is Judy and I took over the Kumon Hemel Hempstead Study Centre in April 2016.
I have 20 years’ experience as a primary school teacher so can incorporate everything I have learnt thus far into my Kumon instruction and, therefore help your children to make the best possible progress.
At Kumon, students are able to learn their times tables to such a degree of proficiency that when they come to more advanced study they can progress with ease.
I have three grown up children who all studied with Kumon when they were younger, and through Kumon they were all equipped with the necessary skills to go on and pursue their desired line 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 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.
