My name is Sandra Ritchie and I have been the Instructor at the Perth Study Centre since 2003. I have a degree in maths and physics, a Master’s, have experience in both engineering and management positions, and have also worked as a maths lecturer at a university.
Kumon has allowed me to live out my dream of providing children the means to reach their full potential, and I can honestly say that running the Perth Kumon Centre has been the most rewarding job I have ever had.
Every week, children and parents tell me of their successes at school and how far they’ve come since starting Kumon. Many of my students have found Kumon to be life-changing in how it allowed them to grow in confidence, develop strong study skills and to succeed at their goals.
My own two sons studied Kumon from pre-school, so I have seen the benefits firsthand. I regularly have parents tell me they wish they had started their child earlier and I am not surprised that a huge number of my students come to me through recommendations.
I look forward to meeting you!
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.
