At Milton Keynes, Giffard Park Study Centre, we encourage each and every child to become an independent advanced learner, with a positive attitude towards study. We support students to reach their full potential from preschool to A Levels in maths and English.
The class assistants are fully trained and motivated to ensure each student reaches their full potential. We have a time slotting system available with a limited number of students in class at a given time, with controlled access for entry and exit.
Students complete daily worksheet study developing ability and fluency gradually over time, progressing in small steps and building confidence. They visit the study centre up to twice a week for guidance. Your child will be set work at just the right level to challenge and keep them engaged, regardless of age or school year. This means that they can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond school grade level without restriction. Kumon offers a cost-effective and convenient way to help your child build strong English and maths skills for a successful future.
As a Kumon Instructor, I have the opportunity to inspire, encourage and guide my students on the path of hope and optimism. "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence" - Hellen Keller.
Providing guidance and constructive feedback is crucial to building rapport with my students by increasing their confidence and abilities. This also allows them to improve their study skills.
I continue to devote time and energy to mentoring my students to reach beyond their academic skills by setting targets for each individual. I feel very proud when my students become independent and confident learners as I believe their strengths and abilities will allow them to succeed.
I work as a team with parents and students to ensure they are getting the best experience from the Kumon programmes.

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.
