Welcome to the Kumon Leicester, Syston Study Centre.

Since opening in 2011, the Leicester, Syston study centre has nurtured many students aged three to 16, to help them develop the necessary skills to tackle work beyond their school level. We have seen children who lacked in confidence come running into class eager to show off their latest achievement certificates from school.

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

At Kumon, we realise that each child is different and learn in different ways. The free assessment we carry out provides a starting point appropriate to your child’s current level of ability and identifies any areas needing development. A study plan is then drawn up and, as your child moves through the programme; their progress is continuously monitored, with the aim of reaching an advanced level.

Students complete daily worksheets and visit the centre once or twice a week. When in class, your child’s study skills are observed and developed in line with the Kumon Method of Learning.

Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.

Hello, my name is Sameena Thirukumar and I am the Instructor at the Kumonm Leicester, Syston Study Centre. I have a degree in Biological and Chemical Science and a master’s in Biomedical Science. Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked as an assistant at the Leicester, Rushey Mead centre for over nine years.

Having been involved in the programme for many years I have experienced first-hand how children of all ages and abilities enjoy their learning and thrive academically. I also experienced the reward of seeing them make dramatic progress, not just academically but also being able to foster the desire to do better, taking responsibility for their own learning and willing to work independently.

The Kumon worksheets are the most effective tool that I have seen to build students confidence to become self-learners who are able to work ahead of their school grade level.

It is very rewarding to see children progress through their Kumon journey and unleash their full potential with confidence and this is the main inspiration for me to apply to become an Instructor. My aim as a Kumon Instructor is to always challenge and inspire my students to help them deepen their knowledge and understanding.

I take pride in providing a tailor-made programme for each unique child. All students see me before leaving class and I review progress towards their learning goals.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes, then feel free to give me a call, and I will be pleased to discuss the programme with you.

Most 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.
