About this centre
The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to build key learning foundations. Our programmes will not only help your child to become a confident learner, they go one step further than traditional maths or English tuition by equipping them with the skills to learn for themselves. Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond, building independence and ability to progress without reliance on a teacher. Our study programmes provide an economical way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future.
After an initial assessment, your child will follow an individualised study programme with work set at just the right level. They complete daily worksheets building skills and fluency in small manageable steps, as well as attending tuition groups at their local study centre up to twice a week. An Instructor will monitor and guide your child’s learning development to ensure work remains challenging. Kumon study does not follow any curriculum and work is set regardless of age, enabling children to revisit topics or advance far beyond school material without restriction.
My name is Kirti Patel and I have been a Kumon Instructor for almost 17 years and a Kumon parent for approximately 20 years. I am a maths graduate and had been teaching maths at a local secondary school for quite some time before I decided to become a Kumon Instructor.
Having enrolled my daughter to study Kumon maths when she was five years old, I quickly came to see the all-round study skills she was developing through Kumon study, thus enhancing her mathematical ability. As a Kumon parent, I wanted a more active role in facilitating this opportunity to children with varying abilities in the local area.
The most rewarding aspect of my role as a Kumon Instructor is when I witness a shy and timid child blossom into a confident and independent learner, or when I see my students' faces glow with pride upon overcoming difficult or challenging work.
Furthermore, when I hear heart-warming comments such as, "my child is much more confident and happy at school with huge improvements in their school reports since starting their Kumon journey" or simply "I love maths" or "I love reading", it reinforces the reasons why I am a Kumon Instructor and will continue to be for many years to come!

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.
