About this centre
Since opening in 2016, Middlesbrough Central Study centre has gone from strength to strength, with many enrolments coming from parent recommendations and students travelling to the centre from across the Tees Valley area.
To celebrate this growth, we have invested in permanent premises with good transport links via car and bus. Permanent premises allow us to offer our families more choice from the additional sessions and a more flexible attendance pattern. The instructor is available throughout the day to discuss, by prior arrangement, their child’s progress.
We currently have children from three to fifteen years of age and a wide range of abilities. We have a dedicated ‘early learner’ area, age appropriate furniture and children have access to additional learning materials, to further enhance their learning experience while in attendance at the centre.
Our Kumon team have a variety of educational backgrounds, fully qualified teachers, teaching assistants, university students and ex Kumon students, who have studied Kumon to the higher levels. Between us we offer a wealth of experience and can offer an appropriate level of support and guidance to all children, allowing them to develop into confident, independent learners.
My name is Denise Keegan and I am the Instructor at Kumon Middlesbrough Central. After a successful career in education teaching maths to children of all abilities, I decided to open a Kumon centre. My decision to become a Kumon instructor was simple, my experience in both business and education led me to believe the Kumon method has been designed to encourage all individuals to develop to their maximum potential, regardless of their learning ability. Since opening my centre three years ago I have not been disappointed with my decision.
The centre has grown, and gone from strength to strength, with parents happy to recommend us to family and friends, as they see their children grow both academically and personally while studying the Kumon programme. It is rewarding to hear from children when they announce they are being moved up into the ‘higher sets’ at school and recognise this is due to their hard work and commitment to their Kumon studies.
My aim for the future is to continue to provide a nurturing environment for children to develop strong learning foundations, and to build their skills and confidence for their future.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and extend a warm welcome to you and your family to discuss how the Kumon programme can assist with your child’s development.

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.
