About this centre

Online Class Available

The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes offer what traditional tuition gives to your child and more. Kumon goes one step further by helping each child develop self-learning skills, enabling them to tackle challenging work without reliance on a teacher. Our aim is to help any child of any ability to progress and develop a curiosity and love for learning.

Your local Instructor will set work for your child at just the right level, enabling them to build confidence in their abilities and progress their maths and English skills in small, manageable steps through daily study. They will visit their local study centre up to twice a week for sessions with their Instructor. This allows the Instructor to tailor and adapt each child’s study plan to their abilities, through observing their progress and fluency at each level. Our study programmes are individualised to each child to help them establish strong learning foundations and a positive learning experience, to build skills and confidence for their future.

Hello and a very warm welcome to the Kumon Sanderstead Study Centre.

My name is Hitomi Kaneko and I am one of the UK’s longest serving Kumon Instructors. I have been teaching the Kumon method to hundreds of children for the past 30 years. Many people are curious as to what keeps me so committed to Kumon. The answer is simple: Kumon’s ethos, that any child can achieve, irrespective of ability. Prior to Kumon I was a primary school teacher in Japan and having raised a disabled child; I know from a first-hand perspective that there need not be any barriers to achievement – Kumon’s individually tailored study programmes, enable me to foster the same belief in all Kumon students, so that they become confident independent learners.

I am privileged to watch young children flourish into successful adults through the Kumon programme. There is no greater satisfaction than hearing that Kumon has had a lasting impact and has contributed to shaping a young person’s future.

The Kumon Sanderstead centre is very proud to be the only study centre in the area and also offers the Kokugo programme to any Japanese students.

I would love to welcome you and your child into the Kumon Sanderstead family.

Most Popular Questions

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.
