My name is Jenn Appleton and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Prescot Study Centre.
Since graduating from university, I have worked in an educational setting with children and young people. My main focus has been on motivating and inspiring them to recognise and achieve their full potential, academically and as part of their community. I truly believe that by giving children key tools to recognise their inner confidence this supports them in the future to achieve their goals.
Most of all through my job I enjoy building relationships with my students and their families, and helping each student achieve success through the Kumon programmes.
As an Instructor, my role is to ensure all of my students are working at a pace suitable to them, setting personalised goals and being on hand to support them in developing study skills and that all important inner confidence.
Please contact me with any questions you may have regarding the Kumon Prescot Study Centre.
I really look forward to meeting you and beginning your family’s Kumon journey.
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.
