Stevenage North - Colette Allin

About this centre

The centre was opened in 1998, and is now a thriving and important part of the local community. The majority of students live in the local area and attend local schools. A dedicated team is on hand to assist maths and English students if required. More than 60% of current students are studying work that is advanced for their age.

At the Stevenage North Study Centre, there are students of all ages and abilities; at present the youngest student is four years old and the oldest student is 16. Eight of the students have attended the centre for more than six years and are all excelling on the maths and English programmes. 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 Colette Allin and I have been a Kumon Instructor since June 1998. I am very committed to ensuring that every child in my centre develops to their full potential.

I have an excellent team of assistants who also support the students at the centre, and most of whom have studied Kumon at my centre when they were younger. Parents are given regular feedback regarding their child's study and I hold communication classes with parents to ensure they are aware of their child's development and next goals.

Through running my centre, I have seen how children can improve in their studies by giving them the confidence to learn for themselves. Students are encouraged to be independent in the classroom and improve on overall study skills like concentration and focus, as well as learning the maths and English topics.

My aim for the Stevenage North Study Centre is to promote a nurturing environment of growth and understanding for my students. My role is to guide and motivate students through the programmes, to set goals and targets together to ensure they are progressing and reaching their potential.

For further information please do not hesitate to give me a call.

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.
