The Kumon Skipton Study Centre was established in 2002 and has been run by the current Instructor since 2010. The Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.

We offer both in-centre and online classes:

Tuesday 1pm-3.30pm (online class for early learners); 3.45pm-6pm (in-centre class)

Thursday 2pm-7pm (online class.)

In the classroom, new students and early learners work with class assistants to develop good study skills, before moving on to work more independently. Students are given a time slot to attend class and we have Covid measures in place to ensure safety including 2m distancing and use of sanitisers. Staff wear masks when they are working closely with children.

During our online Zoom classes, students complete paper-based worksheets, and the Instructor is able to closely observe their work in a safe way. Throughout the pandemic, all our students maintained their studies online, and have made amazing progress.

When starting Kumon, your child will have a detailed assessment in maths or English and a study plan will be developed, allowing them to build on their current skills, further their knowledge and excel both inside and outside the classroom.

My name is Diane and I am the Instructor at the Skipton Study Centre. I have a background in science and have been teaching maths to children and adults for almost 20 years. As a parent of three children who are now at University, I am passionate about education.

The Kumon method of learning helps children to thrive. Many of the students at my centre are working above their school grade. Kumon can help children to develop their potential in maths and English and become confident individuals.

My role as a Kumon Instructor is extremely enjoyable and rewarding. The most fulfilling part is seeing the children grow in ability and confidence in class but also finding out from parents that they have made huge progress at school or are simply much more confident!

I have seen many children make amazing progress with Kumon. Kumon is for children of all ages and abilities. Because the Kumon method is so individualised, they can all make rapid progress.  I am immensely proud of the progress that my students have made.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Skipton Study Centre. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for further information.

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.
