Would your child benefit from extra maths or English study? Or both? At Standish and Shevington Kumon Centre we are here to help. My class assistants and I welcome children of all ages and abilities, and we strive to help them to learn new skills and improve their academic grades. Whether your child needs to 'catch up' or needs challenging, we have the expertise and resources to help them to progress.
Every child is assessed before joining the class so that the Instructor, Fran Hutcheon, knows exactly what work to set to help the new student from the outset. The assessment is free. Every student is always set work specific to them so that it is always relevant. That is one reason why so many of our students do so well and make excellent progress.
The Instructor, Fran Hutcheon is always happy to answer any questions you might have about the Kumon programmes and how they can help your child.
For further information, or to book an assessment please contact the Instructor Fran Hutcheon.
Hello, my name is Fran Hutcheon and I am the Kumon Instructor at Standish and Shevington Study Centre. I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 10 years and during that time I have had the pleasure of instructing many children with differing abilities and needs. I love the way the Kumon programmes allow me to treat every student as an individual, capable of progressing at their own pace.
Many of my students stay with me for a number of years, progressing well beyond the expectations of their school year group. It is wonderful to see them grow up and excel, knowing that I have helped them.
In the 1980s I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BA (Honours) and then I attained my Postgraduate Certificate in Education. I have been a teacher ever since. I have worked for Lancashire and Sefton in primary, secondary and special schools, and I have learned a lot along the way.
I will aim to build your child's confidence and self-esteem and help him/her to focus and concentrate on study.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your child and the Kumon programme, or book an assessment.

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.
