My name is Louise Stergar and I am proud to be the Instructor at the Kumon Hillhead Study Centre. Having studied at the University of Glasgow I am delighted to be working in this interesting and diverse part of Glasgow.
Recognising that each child is different, Kumon is an individualised programme, devised to discover each child’s potential and help develop good study skills. I have a passion to work with children and families in the area and to recognise each child’s achievements. I will strive to help every student achieve their goals; one of the things I love about being a Kumon instructor is when a student suddenly has that light bulb moment and says “I’ve got it!”.
The proof that Kumon works is that my own two children attended Kumon while in primary school; both experienced improvements in maths and English. An added bonus was to watch their confidence grow and see the benefits in all areas of their lives both academic and social.
I strongly believe that our children are the key to shaping a better future and as their Kumon Instructor, my aim is help your children develop independence and begin working ahead of their age group.
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.
