Welcome to the Kumon Ilford, Seven Kings Study Centre, which provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
The study centre continues to see students benefit from the study programmes every week. Students attend the centre up to twice a week, and through an individual daily work plan, can develop skills such as concentration, confidence, independent learning and good study habits, as well as maths and/or English.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands.
Information sessions are usually held on a Thursday evening and enrolments are arranged at a time to suit you - normally in the evening during the week or Saturday mornings. At these meetings we can discuss the Kumon programmes, show examples of the type of work your child will be doing and assess the level at which your child will begin.
If you do wish to proceed, your child can start at the next session on the day that is most convenient for you.
Please contact me if you wish to find out more about the Kumon Ilford, Seven Kings Study Centre. I look forward to meeting you and your child; together we can help them succeed, both in and out of the classroom.
My name is Henna Patel and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Ilford, Seven Kings Study Centre. The study centre was opened in 1997 and I took over as Instructor in January 2011. I was familiar with Kumon as my younger brother had been enrolled on the maths programme whilst he was at school.
I remembered how much the Kumon Method of Learning had helped my brother become a confident and driven young man, with great life skills. Seeing how much it had helped him, I jumped at the chance of being able to give other children the same opportunities by becoming a Kumon Instructor.
For me Kumon is much more than a job, as it is much more than simply a maths or English programme. My students set goals and targets and work to achieve them; the goals are not just academic, but an overall aim to grow, overcome any difficulties, and have a sense of confidence, pride and achievement in their work.
Over the years I have been lucky enough to see many of my students achieve their full potential. I feel proud to know that I have helped them take responsibility for their own futures and see them go on to achieve not only academically, but on a broader spectrum.

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.
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 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.
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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
