About this centre
The Kumon Lenzie and Kirkintilloch Study Centre opened in 2005 and opens its doors to children of all ages and abilities. Children attend class once or twice a week and spend around half-an-hour studying each subject. The Instructor Karen, is supported each class by up to six class assistants who are all highly trained and passionate about the individual needs of each child.
The youngest student currently studying at the centre is four years old and the eldest is fifteen. For the young learners in class, we have dedicated class assistants to support the children develop their study skills.
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.

Hello, my name is Karen McAdie and I am the Instructor at the Lenzie and kirkintilloch Study Centre. I have always been passionate about children’s education and most of my career has been dedicated to this cause.
I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 15 years, and before Kumon I was a learning support teacher at both local primary and secondary schools.
I first became interested in Kumon after enrolling two of my children, who at that time were struggling at school. They seemed to thrive and quickly improved both in terms of self-confidence and school performance - I was delighted with the results! This inspired me to become more involved with Kumon and when a vacancy for a Class Assistant position became available I jumped at the chance.
The Class Assistant role gave me the opportunity to fully understand the programme and I loved seeing that “light-bulb” moment when a child who had previously struggled with a subject finally got it.
Two years later I was running my own centre!
Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more, I would love to hear from you.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
