Eight-year-old Archie's Kumon journey
Eight-year-old Archie enrolled at the Kumon Ponteland Study Centre in 2014. Just two years on and he has found a new confidence in both maths and English.
Instructor Liz said: "Archie's made phenomenal progress in both the maths and English programmes."
Watch this short film where we spoke to Archie's dad and Instructor Liz, to see how far Archie has developed in his maths and English skills, and his enjoyment of learning.
Dad, David said: "Kumon has certainly given him a really big boost. He loves going to the classes. It's a big bit of independence for him."
David added: "We're big fans of Kumon I have to say, both my wife and I have seen the difference it's made. He's a better writer, he has better mental agility with maths."
Liz agreed: "I do feel very proud of Archie, but I do feel that that's the work that he's put in along the way, and his parents too. Team effort."
