About this centre
The centre was established in 1998 and enjoys a reputation for the success of its students amongst the local community.
At the Southend East Study Centre, there are 12 class assistants trained in different areas of Kumon study, supporting over 150 students of different ages and abilities.
Students can start Kumon study at any age from pre-school upwards. Most students enter the classroom independently, although pre-schoolers are offered assistance. These young students work with an early learning assistant in order to develop strong work skills, progressing to our supported learning area until they are ready to self-learn in order to realise their full potential in maths and English.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Many students continue their learning to GCSE and A-levels, and a number have completed the programmes.
The Southend East Study Centre sets goals to motivate and encourage students. Staff acknowledge student achievements along the way but celebrate them more publicly at their annual presentation ceremony.
The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.

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.
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.
