My name is Andrew Newman and I have been a Kumon Instructor in Hull since 2016. Prior to this, I worked with children and young adults for 20 years in a range of capacities including outdoor education, special educational needs, youth work, and as a primary and middle school teacher.
The first time I walked in to a Kumon class, I knew this journey would be a wonderful opportunity to use my skills and passions for the development of young learners. Kumon is an established and proven system of independent learning for all ages and abilities and the mastery and confidence that students can achieve really appealed to me.
The potential for personal development and character building is such an intricate part of Kumon. As a guide and instructor, being able to identify next steps and celebrate achievements both academically and personally with students and their families is such a privilege.
Kumon has been an inspiration for me and has supported my own desire of research learning and personal development in greater depth. I believe in its potential for all students and look forward to welcoming you to the centre where you, too, can experience the possibilities.
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.
