The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to develop key foundations for learning. Our unique study method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop their ability and fluency before moving on to the next topic. Kumon study does not follow the school curriculum, and work is set according to ability, irrespective of age. Our programmes allow children the flexibility to revisit and build skills where they need to and progress beyond school grade level where their ability allows. Unlike traditional tuition, Kumon study fosters students’ skill in self-learning, building confidence and lessening reliance on a teacher.
Before enrolling, your child will be assessed to enable the Instructor to evaluate the current ability and set work at just the right level for them. Through the daily worksheets studied at home, students develop their ability and fluency. Your child will also visit their local study centre for study sessions up to twice a week, where the Instructor will observe their learning growth and set work accordingly. Kumon aims to develop each child into a confident, independent and enthusiastic learner with a positive attitude to study.
Located in the heart of Herne Hill, close to many local schools, the Kumon Herne Hill Study Centre offers the Kumon Maths and English Programmes to children of all ages and abilities. Currently, students attending range from nursery through to secondary school age. Classes operate on a time-slot basis (please see opening times), and students need to allow around 30 minutes per subject to work in class and at home.
I have worked in the Financial sector for many years, leading on to then raising a family and have since enjoyed many years of interaction with young people through my involvement in various school activities. Kumon has allowed me to pursue a new challenge in an area I am passionate about – the education of young people.
Being a Kumon parent myself, I have seen first-hand how the Kumon programme has helped my children, not only with their academic achievements but also in improving their concentration, speed, resilience and most importantly their ability to self-study. It also gives me a parents' perspective on studying Kumon which is invaluable in understanding and communicating with the parents at my centre.
The greatest privilege I have as a Kumon Instructor is being able to observe students understand a concept for the first time and watch their belief in their abilities grow with their continued study. The job satisfaction and sense of pride I feel in my role are second to none, and I am excited to nurture many more students on the programmes.
My team and I look forward to welcoming you and your child to the Kumon Herne Hill Study Centre.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
