The Kumon St Neots and the Eatons Study Centre has been running from the Priory Centre for almost ten years, providing personalised study programmes in maths and English for students of all ages and abilities. Currently children at the centre range from preschool age to 15 years old.
Conveniently located in the heart of St Neots town centre, the study centre is located on the ground floor. The classroom offers a calm and focussed atmosphere for the students to study. The centre holds award ceremonies each year to celebrate the progress and achievements of the students.
At each session assistants are on hand to support the Instructor and the students. The assistants are all highly trained in the Kumon programmes and have learned directly from the Instructor the most effective ways of working to develop an independent and happy Kumon student.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
My name is Ola Korwin. Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor I worked in the education sector.
My role involved supporting children of mixed ability whose first language wasn’t English. By recognising children’s individual needs, I supported them in settling into a new environment, getting familiar with new routines and working on improving their command of the English language, which helped to boost their confidence.
All of my previous roles and experiences have enabled me to understand the importance of independent learning, a concept which is fundamental to the Kumon Method of Learning. Being able to have an individual approach towards each child I taught was my dream.
Becoming a Kumon Instructor allowed me to realise that dream – in my centre each student is treated individually by observation, setting work according to their ability, adjusting instructions and setting short and long-term goals.
I believe Kumon is a great choice for those wanting to develop their child’s ability in maths and English. It also provides answers to many individual learning challenges as well as developing and stretching children to work beyond school level.
I am proud to be a part of the Kumon family.

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.
