Hello, I'm Gaitry Bhogal, the Kumon Instructor for the Romford Study Centre. I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 13 years and I thoroughly enjoy my role.
I was motivated to become a Kumon Instructor as I have always wanted to do something through which I can benefit my local community; and I am passionate about helping children to develop into better individuals so that they can help humanity improve in the future!
I have teaching experience in a secondary school and I have completed a degree, a master's degree and a PGCE. My qualifications have helped me to develop teaching skills and the ability to apply knowledge. Another very important skill I have acquired is the ability to work with students of different abilities at the same time; this is very important as a Kumon Instructor.
Over the years I have nurtured thousands of students to realise their potential. Many of my students start Kumon from as young as five or six years old and continue until their GCSE’s. The independence, maturity and character this develops in the student is remarkable; not to mention their outstanding academic skills which support them in any career they wish to embark upon.
The most rewarding element of my role is seeing the light of transformation in children's characters through studying Kumon.
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.
