Hello my name is Devinder Grewal. I have been the Instructor at the Heston Study Centre since 2007. I have a Bachelor’s degree in science and, prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked as a private tutor teaching maths.
While I was working as a maths tutor, I found my students benefitted from the time I spent with them, however, the benefit was short-lived, as soon after they would need to recap the topics we had already covered. Within just a few weeks of working at Kumon, I found this was no longer a problem; the Kumon Method of Learning ensures students thoroughly explore each topic in-depth and, by the end of each level, have a strong understanding.
I have an excellent team of class assistants who are able to work alongside students if they find they cannot confidently figure out a question on their own.
I have always enjoyed working with children in an educational environment, which is why I first decided to become a tutor and then later a Kumon Instructor. I find that working with Kumon fulfils my passion for education, and seeing the happy smiles of devoted parents makes every moment spent with each child worthwhile!
I look forward to seeing you at the centre.
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.
