About this centre
We are based in the room at the back of St Paul's Church (side entrance). St Paul's is in the centre of Irlam, almost opposite Chapel Medical Centre.
At Kumon we aim to ensure that every child develops a love for learning. Our Maths and English Study Programmes help students of any age and ability to progress their skills and develop a love for learning. Kumon goes one step further than traditional teaching, by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher.
Students complete daily worksheets, developing ability and fluency gradually over time, progressing in small steps and building confidence. Students visit their local study centre up to twice a week and your child’s Kumon Instructor will set work at just the right level to challenge and keep them engaged, regardless of age or school year. This means that they can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond school grade level without restriction. Kumon offers a cost-effective and convenient way to help your child build strong skills for a successful future.
For 15 years, I was a Primary School teacher and since then I have been teaching music in several schools in Irlam and Cadishead.
I grew up in the area, attending both Cadishead Primary School and Irlam and Cadishead Academy (then called Irlam High School).
I have always been interested in understanding the different ways in which children learn. I was inspired to become an Instructor from talking with other Kumon Instructors and hearing about the amazing progress their students were making at their centre. After visiting their centres and undergoing the very thorough Kumon training, I was convinced that the Kumon Method can be used to teach children of any age and any ability.
Together with my dedicated assistants, I look forward to welcoming your child and discovering within them their potential, so that we can develop their ability to the maximum and enjoy the Kumon journey.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
