We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in May. This offer is open to children in school years Reception and below. Places are limited, so give us a call to find out more.
The Kumon Kingsbury Study Centre is run from the grounds of The Village School. The venue is positioned in the heart of the community and children come to the centre from a plethora of local schools such as Roe Green, Kingsbury Green, Fryent Primary, Oliver Goldsmith, as well as from neighbouring areas.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
We welcome children from three years old all the way to GCSE age. They always work at the right level to enable them to both maximise their learning and excel at school. The students are supported by a warm, friendly team of assistants.
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.
Praise and positive feedback works well to bring out the best in students, so we have rewards as a token of appreciation for them. Our success is demonstrated by our completers in maths and English and our high achievers in academia.
Regular communication with parents is maintained through emails, texts and appointment sessions.
My name is Swati Chakraborty, I am your local Kumon Instructor. I hold a master's degree in English Literature and am extremely passionate about instructing students. I believe no other work is as rewarding as witnessing students achieve and excel. I previously worked in schools, and at other Kumon centres before starting my own in 2014.
I feel fortunate to be a Kumon Instructor as the role gives me the opportunity to help children of all abilities advance and reach their goals. It gives me extreme pleasure to witness the light-bulb moment when a child who was previously struggling with a concept gets it through my guidance and their hard work. The best part of being an Instructor is I do not have to let children be tied down by the class - if they are ready they are free to move on in the programme and advance.
I try to instil a passion for reading in my students, as I believe reading not only helps with literature and language skills, but also can help to hone the analytical skills required to solve mathematical problems. This in turn makes for a more independent learner.
You are welcome to call me anytime to discuss the programmes and find out how they can help your child attain, and boost their confidence.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
