The Kumon Kidlington Study Centre has been running since 2002, and over that time has helped hundreds of students from in and around Kidlington grow in confidence and ability in maths and English.
Students typically attend the centre once a week for 30-45 minutes if they are studying one subject or about an hour if they are studying both subjects. Most of the students are aged between four and 16 years old, but all ages abilities are catered for. The centre is diverse, with students from a range of ethnic backgrounds.
All the staff at the centre are experienced in supporting children, and background checks are in place to ensure their suitability to work with your child. The atmosphere at the centre is friendly and encouraging, an excellent environment for students to focus and learn.
Following a free assessment, your child’s study programme will be tailored to their individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
I became an Instructor after seeing Kumon in action through my own mother running a study centre. When I heard her stories of children achieving more than was expected of them and the difference Kumon made in their lives, I was inspired to start up my own centre.
I have always enjoyed learning, especially when it comes to mathematics. I gain satisfaction when I understand something new or when something that once was puzzling me now just makes sense. I want to try pass that on; to give students a chance to learn at their own pace and to develop enthusiasm for their work.
Being a Kumon parent myself, I could already see the benefits it was having for my son. He learned to work independently and to focus even if it is only for a short time.
The most rewarding part of being an Instructor is seeing a child who has been struggling with their work have their 'light bulb' moment when they realise that they can do it. For some, this can be a short journey but for others it can be a long and hard-fought one.
I love hearing from parents of students who have left tell me what a difference it has made to their child and how Kumon has helped them in their school life and beyond.

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.
