Hi. My name is Sally McMeekin and I have been a Kumon Instructor since 2004, when I established the Royston Study Centre.
I first became aware of Kumon as a worried parent of a child who was struggling at school. I was recommended the Kumon programmes by a friend and decided to give it a try. Within a year, my child had progressed in her maths. Even better, her confidence grew and her grades in all her subjects also improved. Kumon really worked.
When doing some volunteer Excel training in a local primary school, I could see how fearless children were when it came to learning. It was fun and so worthwhile. So, I decided to train as a Kumon Instructor.
Having been a Kumon parent, I understand both the rewards and difficulties you will have when you start your child on Kumon, and I'm here to guide you all the way. I always visit new families before they start Kumon, so that I know how to best support each child's learning.
My greatest reward is to share with parents their child's achievements.
Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know how Kumon could help your child be the best they can be.
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.
