Welcome to Kumon Hereford Study Centre.
Our dedicated team of staff welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Students attend the centre for approximately 30 minutes per subject once or twice a week, and your class day/arrival time will be arranged at your initial assessment meeting.
The centre fosters a positive, encouraging atmosphere, and focuses on developing excellent study skills as an integral part of our maths and English programmes. The Kumon programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home.
Following a free assessment your child will begin on the programmes at an individually set starting point. Their progress through the programmes will be tailored to their individual needs. There are a variety of parking options for the centre. The Tesco car park is free for up to 30 minutes or you can park for two hours if you spend £5 in store. There is a car park in West Street or you can park behind the Horse and Groom pub in Eign Street.
My name is Lynn Johnson and I have been running the Hereford Study Centre since 2013. I have a degree in Engineering from Loughborough University, and worked for the mobile phone company Orange before becoming a one to one tutor in 2007 and then re-training to become an Instructor.
I’m very fortunate to be a Kumon Instructor and I am passionate about my work. I strongly believe in individualised learning, and place a great deal of importance on developing strong study skills. I’m fortunate to be able to work with students of all abilities – some may be struggling in school, while others may want to be challenged.
I like to keep in regular contact with parents/carers to keep them informed of their child’s progress, as I believe that they play an important role in their child’s study. Communication is vital to ensure that we work together to enable students to achieve their potential. Formal progress meetings take place regularly and parents/carers are always welcome to contact me at any time outside of class by email or telephone to discuss their child’s progress.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
