The Kingswinford Study Centre is a well-established and reputable study centre, based in 'The Bungalow' at Crestwood School on Bromley Lane. Classes are every Tuesday and Thursday after school and every Saturday morning.
We provide high quality tuition in maths and English to children of all ages and abilities. The Kumon programmes support children of preschool, primary and secondary school age, as well as those in further education.
In addition to developing academic ability, we also support children in developing their study skills, confidence and a can-do attitude; which is vital to long-term success. Every child is different, and so their programme of study should be too. Our individualised programmes enable students to progress at their own pace, so they can realise their potential and experience success.
The centre employs class assistants to support the Instructor and the students on class days. All assistants are DBS checked and regularly attend first aid, manual handling and safeguarding training.
The unique Kumon maths and English programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Kumon is the world's largest supplementary educational provider, with over 4 million students studying on the programmes.
My name is Emma Wilkinson and I am the Instructor at the Kingswinford Study Centre. I am a qualified maths and English teacher, with more than 18 years’ experience of working with children in all key stages; including those with SEN. I have previously enjoyed a varied career in nursing, midwifery, early years and social care.
Becoming a Kumon Instructor in 2014, has given me great joy and autonomy to make a difference to the lives of many children. It is so rewarding to see a child grow in confidence and develop their work skills. My job is to nurture every child, to develop them academically and as a whole person. There’s nothing quite like sharing an ‘a-ha’ moment with a child at class!
My favourite part of being an Instructor is seeing a child who may have lost their confidence, regain it and hold their head up high. It’s lovely to see the difference you can make to a child’s learning, and it’s beautiful to see a child develop over time. I feel it’s a privilege to be part of a child’s Kumon journey and to know you’ve had a helping hand in it! No other job can better that.

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.
