Welcome to the Solihull Elmdon study centre.
At Kumon, our aim is for each and every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to study.
I have a receptionist and class assistants who support the development of the student’s study skills. The early learners have dedicated class assistants specifically trained to work with them as they learn to read, count and write.
As a Kumon student, your child will develop invaluable study skills and build in confidence as they become an independent learner. Through daily study of the unique Kumon worksheets, your child will strive towards studying above the international standard for their age, enabling them to realise their potential both at school and beyond. In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child will also attend the study centre twice a week.
The centre is located in Lode Heath School where the classroom can be accessed directly from the car park, making it accessible for parents and children.
I started running the Solihull Elmdon centre two years ago with one student - she is still studying maths with me today and watching her learn and progress has been a great joy.
Children are all unique and being able to watch them grow and progress every class is the best feeling in the world. I love the fact that Kumon not only helps children excel in maths and English but gives them confidence and develops good study skills.
I have had the pleasure of reading so many school reports where students from my centre have not only been praised at school for excellent maths and English work but also for their "can do" attitude. One of the best aspects of the Kumon programmes for me is that the learning fits the student - they work at a pace that is just right for them and no one is ever left behind in their studies.

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.
