Welcome to the Kumon Selsdon Study Centre.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The majority of students at the centre attend local schools and range from pre-schoolers to those in secondary school, however the centre welcomes students of all ages and abilities. We have had many students go on to do well in their 11+ and entrance exams for schools in Sutton, Kent, Bromley, Bexley and Croydon, having developed the complementary study skills needed to achieve success.
Newly enrolled students are closely monitored to ensure they acquire the study skills and self-assurance to go on to become confident, independent learners. As well as the Instructor, the centre has three friendly, approachable assistants who have been trained to support the development of the children studying both the maths and English programmes.
In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child will also attend the study centre up to twice a week. Parents are kept informed about their child’s progress through the regular progress meetings and quarterly newsletters.
Hello, my name is Ade Adeyemo and I am the Instructor at the Selsdon Study Centre. I have been a Kumon Instructor since 2011 and a Kumon parent since 2001.
As a Kumon parent and a mother of three, I have witnessed the Kumon Method helping my children to achieve success at their schools, university and now into their chosen careers. Seeing and knowing how the Kumon programme helped my children inspired and prompted me to want to start my own centre.
The experience I have gained as a Kumon parent and as an Instructor have given me unique insights and added empathy. I really enjoy motivating children and watching them develop their study skills and grow in confidence and I am supported by a motivated team of assistants.
I look forward to discussing the programme with you and hope to see your children develop key life skills through Kumon study and would be delighted to welcome you to the Selsdon Study Centre.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
