Having recently qualified as an Instructor not only gives me the full insight and ability to instruct on the Kumon Method but also inspires me to work with children to unlock their capabilities and nurture their potential to become the self-learners and self-developers of the future.
Having worked in the Banking and Finance industry for over 20 years, covering various roles from Retail Management, Operations, Risk and Compliance; I have the opportunity to utilise my organisation, listening and planning skills to help your child reach their full potential.
My primary reason to become an Instructor is to help make a difference and give something back to the community which I was luckily able to get from my parents, work colleagues, my family and the community as a whole.
I’ll be starting a child’s journey at Kumon with an assessment of their current abilities followed by a plan put together by myself and agreed with the parent/guardian to not only build up on the child’s strengths in learning but to also enable the child to overcome their weaknesses through their own ability.
I commit to work with the child whilst they come to my centre, continuously review and assess their progress through work done in or out of class and maintain a good communication chain with the child and parent/guardian at regular intervals.
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.
