The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities and has been providing a valuable service for the local community since 2002.

Currently, the youngest student is three years old and the oldest is 18. The centre has a friendly but studious atmosphere and there are a team of dedicated assistants on hand to assist students when required.

A number of motivational items are used such as stickers, certificates, prizes and medals. Feedback is given to students each week with praise, encouragement and guidance and feedback is also communicated with parents by phone, email or briefly at class.

The unique Kumon maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

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.

About the Instructor

Hello, my name is Alessandra Lacerda, and I am the Instructor at the Islington Study Centre.

I have studied AAT accountancy courses to explore my options in this field and I also have a masters in Languages & Literature. I have worked with children for over 20 years, which I really enjoy. I have had the privilege to work in different countries such as Brazil, Germany and in the UK and now I am permanently based in the UK with my family.

Being a teacher is very rewarding but has its challenges. One of them is to make sure your student is capable of being an independent critical thinker, but as a teacher, how do you accomplish this difficult task? Kumon method has over 50 years of trying and successfully obtaining that aim.

That is exactly my motivation to have a Kumon Centre. As an Instructor, I can see and develop my students’ potential to the maximum, and more importantly, to confirm that they can self-learn, discover their own potential, and use their abilities to the maximum. To achieve that, as a teacher, it is necessary to create a mindset that we believe in our students and that makes the difference for their academic and personal lives.

To make the Kumon experience complete I hold conversations with the parents frequently and a progress meeting annually.

Popular Questions

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.
