About this centre
The Kumon Rayleigh Study Centre has been flourishing for over 20 years originally in Hockley and now available in Rayleigh. The unique Kumon programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence.
We proudly provide individualised learning programmes in both English and Mathematics for children of all ages and abilities. Although most of our students typically start Kumon in Years 1 and 2, sometimes earlier, we also currently support and develop students’ full potential in Years 8, 9 and 10 preparing for their GCSEs.
The study centre has 11 dedicated class assistants to ensure quick feedback, so that each and every student is able to make maximum progress when they attend our centre. Whilst work is being marked, there is a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books of all levels from the Kumon Recommended Reading List for students to appreciate as well as number board activities.
Students must then do all their corrections so that they leave with that 100% achievement feeling every time they finish their study session at Rayleigh.
One of my proudest moments in my teaching career was when I was nominated by my students and fellow teachers for the Pearson National Teaching Awards for Teacher of the Year (Secondary School) where I was shortlisted to the final 12 in 2014. As a teacher, I always put myself in the students shoes and see how I can guide them meticulously to the next step without telling them the solution, but showing and encouraging them how to work it out for themselves, so that they are well-equipped to face any subsequent difficulties with strength.
What attracted me to become a Kumon Instructor is that I was really impressed with the structure of the Kumon worksheets and how they encourage students to progress independently with little steps. I truly enjoy guiding students to those ‘light bulb’ moments as much as possible and strive to ensure that my students enjoy their experience at the Kumon Rayleigh Study Centre.

To get your child started with Kumon study you will pay a one off registration fee to register them as a student
Study takes around 30 minutes per subject a day, depending on age and level of the work. At the moment, study is at home but classes will be open for study again as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.
