My name is James Kazadi.
I went to a school that gave me a really solid foundation in maths, reading and writing and every afternoon, after school, I would sit quietly in designated rooms for focussed study. This encouraged me to develop independent study skills, confidence and ability.
As soon as I found out about Kumon, I enrolled my two sons in our local centre. It proved absolutely the right decision as I saw how their confidence had grown. I loved seeing them maintain their focus and finish their worksheets no matter how hard that sometimes is. I love seeing how much they enjoy learning and achieving.
When I saw the impact of Kumon on my own children I decided to help other children reach their full potential. I love being a Kumon Instructor. I really enjoy tailoring the learning to each individual child. I love to see children having that ‘eureka’ moment when they understand something they have not understood before.
I am very honoured to be making a real difference to the lives of children. All students get a very warm welcome at the Sheffield, Highfield Study Centre and I am always happy to meet parents to discuss Kumon and how it could benefit your child, with no obligation to enrol.
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.
