About this centre
The centre opened in 1992 and provides the Kumon Maths and English Programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
Currently, students attending the centre range between the ages of four and 14 years old, from schools in the area and surrounding areas. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The Instructor, Sally Seden-Fowler, is always available to help with work in class and there are at least five assistant to support students.
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 Sally Seden-Fowler and I am the Instructor of the Swansea, Sketty Study Centre.
I was brought up in Surrey and went to Aston University in Birmingham. After initially working in computing I moved to education in Swansea college, completing my PGCE in 1997. Kumon presented the opportunity to open my own centre where I could work with children and my first love, maths.
It has been particularly rewarding over the years to see children breakdown their fear of maths and/or English often progressing to enjoying and excelling in the subject. Some of my assistants started with me as students have passed on through GCSE and A level, and are now passing their knowledge on to current students.

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.
