Welcome, my name is Nina Acharya and I have been the Instructor at the Kumon Thornton Heath Study Centre since 2010.
I have two beautiful children of my own and have had first-hand experience in understanding how each child is very different, as is their learning and development needs. One thing is common however, the fact children have a natural curiosity to learn and if nurtured correctly, children can really excel.
I have always been self-motivated and set myself personal achievement goals, and once accomplished I look for further ways to develop myself. Kumon allows me to fulfil my passion, working with children, which is an even greater reward as I am having a positive impact on so many children's futures.
I love to see my students develop and grow in confidence and enjoy hearing feedback from the parents and students about how their Kumon study has helped them to excel at school.
Being a Kumon Instructor is the most rewarding work I have done in my working life. I am very fortunate to be able to make a difference to the lives of hundreds of children and look forward in helping many more.

Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving 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, either in the centre or their online class, 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.
