About this centre
The Hinckley Study Centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Most of the students attend schools within the area and live in the local community, with some travelling from further afield to study at the centre.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Students currently range from pre-school to high school and beyond. To assist the fully qualified Instructor with the smooth running of the class, there are three fully trained assistants and two markers in the centre to help with the needs of the students.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
I have experience within an educational setting when I worked as a teacher and Head of Business over the last 15 years where I managed a team of teachers.
My primary motivation to be a Kumon Instructor was that I wanted to make a difference to a child’s education, so that they can achieve and compete at an international level. This is becoming increasingly important with the new changes in the curriculum for maths and English which is fundamental in today’s global market.
I have witnessed the benefits of the Kumon Method of Learning with my daughter and I have been impressed with her ability to learn, in her case, three years above the National Curriculum for her year group. With Kumon, there are no limits to a child’s learning and everyone should have the ability to realise their potential thus following their dreams.
I am a friendly, positive and motivated individual where I will work hard to ensure long term success for your child. If you are interested in finding out more about the Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes, then feel free to give me a call, and I will be pleased to discuss the programme with you.

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.
