The Kumon Marton Study Centre opened in 2007 and is run by Jayne Moffat. The centre has students from throughout the Teesside area including Marton, Nunthorpe, Coulby Newham, Acklam, Linthorpe, Guisborough, Great Ayton, Stokesley, Normanby and Ingleby Barwick.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Many students study both the programmes though some concentrate on one. The centre is based in Marton Community Centre, in light and airy rooms with appropriately sized furniture for both older students working independently and early learners who have extra support.
The Instructor is supported by a team of classroom assistants who undertake many duties to support students’ development. The team includes former Kumon students, qualified teaching assistants and a university student.
There is a dedicated assistant who works closely with early learners providing guidance and encouragement. All students are observed closely and given support as and when required.
My name is Jayne Moffat, and I am the Instructor at the Middlesbrough, Marton study centre.
After working as a civil engineer for over 20 years, I decided to rethink my career path and took a year out. I was planning to retrain as a secondary school maths teacher, as I’d studied maths to degree level, however, during this year I started my daughter on the Kumon Maths Programme, following a recommendation from a friend of mine.
Seeing the fantastic progress she made, studying GCSE work in Year 6 and an increase in her confidence, I decided I wanted to become a Kumon Instructor.
I opened my centre in May 2007 and have never looked back. I have instructed hundreds of children in the Kumon Method, many of them reaching high levels of the programme and working on material well beyond their school age.
I find my role as an Instructor extremely rewarding, and like nothing better than when students come in and tell me how their hard work and commitment at Kumon has helped them progress, improve and achieve at school. My favourite comment made by students is: ‘I’m the times tables whizz in my class!’

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.
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 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.
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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
