The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident learners through individualised, advanced study. Kumon is suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Currently, students at the centre range in age from four to 18 years old.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and other aspects of adult life.
The centre runs from Winton House on Howard Road in Morpeth. It is a large, comfortable building which was once the family home of Emily Davison, the suffragette who fought for votes for women. The centre accommodates the main hall for students and a smaller room for parents and siblings to wait in.
The centre is within walking distance of the Morpeth local schools. Although the majority of students live in Morpeth, many travel from the surrounding towns of Ashington, Blyth, Alnwick, Cramlington and other areas.
My name is Sarah Woods and I am the Instructor at the Morpeth Study Centre.
I have been working as a Kumon Instructor since 2014. Both of my children study Kumon, so I know first-hand the benefits of long-term Kumon study. Having studied mathematics at university, I opted to become a Kumon Instructor after my decision to change careers whilst on maternity leave.
My role is to guide and motivate children to develop independent learning skills needed for every stage of their academic life. Our 'study skills and early learners area' allows new and young students to settle into Kumon before moving onto the independent area when they have gained sufficient study skills. Unlike the process of traditional tuition, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands.
It is exciting to be able to help students who are struggling at school, as well as challenging others who are excelling in maths and English. I love the opportunity to be involved in the education of students over many years, seeing them develop their skills from primary school to GCSE level and beyond.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
