My name is Sarah Brown and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Leamington Spa Study Centre. I have a passion for learning, and feel that a good education is the key in today's society. I am a true believer that every child can flourish in maths and English, they just need focused, individualised guidance to get them there, and this is what Kumon provides.
I joined Kumon in 2012 as an Area Manager. During this time I worked at the Harborne Study Centre, instructing students of a variety of ages and abilities. This experience highlighted the benefits of the Kumon programmes for all children. I also saw the wider benefits of daily Kumon study; confident, happy, disciplined individuals, who enjoy a challenge and have great life ambitions. This inspired me to take on my own study centre in Leamington.
At the Kumon Leamington Spa Study Centre I strive to offer the best Kumon experience for every student. With experience in working with over 500 local children over the last six years, my team and I recognise the importance of knowing each child individually to meet their academic and personal needs.
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.
