Kumon Oxford, Botley is Ofsted registered and can accept childcare vouchers and working tax credits as payment.
The Kumon maths and English study programmes enable students of all ages and abilities to achieve. The centre currently supports students from three years old to those completing A levels, and is popular with families throughout Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Our aim is for every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to study. We also aim to encourage a passion for reading in all of our students, with books available for them to read in class from Kumon’s Recommended Reading List.
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 exams, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
The Instructor Louise is supported in class by a team of assistants, recognisable by their Kumon uniform. All have been fully trained so they can help and guide each student to achieve their very best.
Each year the centre, in conjunction with neighbouring centres, holds a formal awards ceremony to celebrate and recognise students’ outstanding achievements. These ceremonies are attended by over 500 students and parents, and are very inspirational and motivational to all.
My name is Louise and I am the Instructor of the Kumon Oxford, Botley Study Centre. I also run the Bicester study centre. I have been an Instructor for 18 years so have vast experience of the Kumon Method and helping students reach their true potential.
Over the years I have nurtured hundreds of local children on the Kumon programmes, many having gone on to achieve places in the top schools and subsequently going onto universities. Seeing these children and having brought our own children through Kumon, we are unreserved in recommending Kumon to nurture confident, resourceful students that can go on to excel in whatever fields they choose.

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.
