Ability development for any child at any age

The Redhill study centre has been opened since 1996, and provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and a wide range of abilities.
Over 100 children between the ages of four and 18 years old are currently enrolled at the centre. Students in year 5 and below should be escorted into the small hall by a responsible adult who must stay in the waiting area until the student is ready to leave class.
The Instructor Maggie Stanger is assisted in class by a team of classroom assistants. New students work on tables of three with one assistant. They are supported to help them develop good study habits and they move to the main work area when they display the necessary confidence and abilities. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
My name is Maggie Stanger and I am the Instructor at the Redhill Study Centre.
I have a maths degree and I started my working life in a top accountancy firm. I had loved maths from an early age and when I saw an advert for Kumon, I decided that sharing this enthusiasm for a subject that many parents and students may not like, and using my experiences from doing a degree in the subject, would be a fulfilling career move. This led me to train as a Kumon Instructor.
Having been a Kumon parent, I understand the challenges that parents face to motivate their children on a daily basis and I am here to support families to enable students to get the most out of their Kumon studies. Over the last 17 years I have helped many students develop the study skills necessary for successful study at secondary school and beyond.
I enjoy the daily challenge of tailoring each student's work to their individual needs to help them to reach their full potential. I find it rewarding to see children with difficulties receive the support they need to help them to continually improve. The students' achievements are celebrated each year at a party and awards ceremony.

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.
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 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.
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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
