About this centre
The Kumon Middlesbrough Central Study Centre been operating since 2016. Over this time the centre has grown and gone from strength to strength and we are proud to say that many of our new families come to us from recommendations. As an Ofsted registered since 2019, our families can rest assured the children are in a safe environment meeting national standards.
We currently run our physical in-centre classes from two different venues: on Tuesdays we hold class in The Avenue Methodist Church (25 The Avenue, Middlesbrough TS5 6PE) and on Saturdays we are at the wonderful Acklam Green Centre (address below). We also offer online classes through Zoom. We started online support for students through the pandemic and we have decided to continue doing so. This has proven to be successful and our students have continued to make excellent progress through these difficult times with many students continuing to achieve ‘Advanced Student Honour Role’ by working with materials above their school grade level.
Children attending the centre have an age range from four to fifteen and a wide range of abilities. Our Kumon team has been drawn from 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.
As an Ofsted registered centre, parents can make considerable savings through various schemes.
My name is Denise Keegan and I am the Instructor at Kumon Middlesbrough Central Study Centre.
Like many people I have had more than one successful career; the first in Retail Management and then over twenty years teaching in education. My decision to invest in Kumon was simple. My experience in both business and education showed me the Kumon philosophies are designed to encourage individuals to develop to their maximum potential.
In teaching I worked with those who are described as having a ‘mild/moderate learning difficulty’ and those described as ‘gifted and talented’. Kumon is an individualised study programme. Every learning need is catered for and all participants are encouraged to achieve to their maximum potential both through encouragement and by being placed in the correct learning environment.
The Kumon Middlesbrough Central Study Centre has now been open since 2016, and in that time, we have seen many students of all abilities reaching their potential, with many students achieving beyond their age with ‘Advanced Student Honour Role’. It is rewarding for myself as Instructor, and for parents and students who reap the rewards of their hard work and commitment with their results achieved at school.
Kumon programmes also develop study skills and nurtures the ability of ‘how to learn’. This life-long learning skill is essential in an ever-increasing competitive global market place.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and extend a warm welcome to you and your family to discuss how Kumon can assist in your child's development.

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.
