The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The study centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Many of the students attend schools within the area and live in the local community.
Tonbridge Study Centre helps students fulfil their potential within the core subjects of maths and English, and has over 20 years experience. Typically your child will come to the centre once a week at a time that is convenient to you within the opening hours for around 30 minutes.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
I have been an Instructor since Kumon UK was founded and have been running my centre for over 22 years. I like to care for all my students to ensure they reach their maximum potential and succeed in their endeavors throughout school and beyond.
My aim is to bring out children's confidence through the programme so that they can enjoy their work not only at Kumon but also at school. I think that having such confidence within themselves can be a key factor in their future success.
Regardless of age or ability, I really do believe that Kumon can help any child to regain their confidence and feel happier with their studies. Working with parents is so important to achieve this which is why I also encourage close relationships between myself as the Instructor, the child and the parents.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
