Hello, my name is Jeff and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Sheffield, Crystal Peaks Study Centre.
Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I had gained an MBA from the University of Salford and an English degree from the Foreign Affairs University in Beijing. After, I went on to be a property accountant. The experience and knowledge I gained through my education and professional career have given me a high level of numerical skills and English proficiency.
I know very well the hopes and goals we all have for our children, and that is why I am so passionate about the Kumon programmes. The environment created within a Kumon Study Centre is the perfect place to nurture your child as an individual, developing both their academic knowledge and study skills. Through the programmes and my direct support at the centre, I will guide your child through every stage of their journey.
The success of the Kumon programmes comes through the partnership between student, parent and Instructor. I truly believe the benefits your child is going to gain will be well worth it.
I very much look forward to meeting you and welcoming your child to the centre.
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.
