Welcome to the Sittingbourne Study Centre.
The centre opened in 2012 and has since then helped many students to pursue their potential and develop their ability. Students build up confidence and other study skills needed for them to make progress in school and beyond.
Students mainly come from local schools in Sittingbourne but some come from neighbouring towns including Faversham, Sheerness and Queenborough. Current ages of students at the centre range from three to 16 years old; although students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
Alongside the Instructor, there are a team of friendly and approachable class assistants to help new students learn the class routine. They also closely monitor and encourage all students in developing their self-learning and correction skills.
Hello, my name is Yewande Adelusola and I am the Instructor at the Sittingbourne Study Centre.
I became involved with Kumon in 2004 when I enrolled my son on the programme. I have guided him through the years and he is developing into a strong, confident young man. I became enthusiastic about the Kumon Method when I saw the progress that he was making and the confidence it built in his school work. As an Instructor, I believe I can make a difference by helping other children also reach their potential.
As the parent of a Kumon student for a number of years before becoming an Instructor, I do feel that the experience has given me unique insights and added empathy.
My greatest reward is seeing children progressing through each level within the study programme. Students gain confidence not only in the areas of study but also outside the classroom. Having seen the impact Kumon has made on the children I have observed over the years, including my own sons, I know that I have been incredibly lucky and privileged in being a Kumon Instructor.
I am supported by a team of friendly, motivated assistants, many of whom have either studied Kumon or work in the field of education.
I look forward to welcoming you to the centre.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
