About this centre
Kumon study aims to ensure that every child develops a love for learning. We offer maths and English programmes to help students of any age and ability to progress their skills and build key foundations for learning. Traditional maths and English tuition helps students progress, but Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher.
Students complete daily worksheet study developing ability and fluency gradually over time, progressing in small steps and building confidence. They also visit their local study centre up to twice a week for guidance from their Instructor. Your child’s Kumon Instructor will 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.
Hello, my name is Helen Jonas and I am the Instructor for the Petts Wood Study Centre.
Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I worked in local primary schools assisting with maths and English. It was through my work in schools, enjoying the rewards of seeing children develop and being able to help play a part in their achievements, that inspired me to become a Kumon Instructor.
As a Kumon Instructor, it is very rewarding to see children develop their confidence and concentration in work they may have previously found difficult or new work they may not have seen before. It is satisfying to hear when students have moved up a group at school, develop a love of reading or have achieved an excellent score in a test at school.
At the Petts Wood Study Centre, I have an excellent team of experienced assistants who, along with myself, will support your child with their Kumon study. Several of the assistants have been Kumon students themselves. Whilst students are at the centre my assistants and I work closely with them, observing their work, providing support and feedback.
Our aim at the Petts Wood Study Centre is for your child to become a confident, independent student that will enjoy their studies both with Kumon and at school.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
