About this centre
The Kumon Tunbridge Wells Study Centre opened in 1988 and welcomes students of all ages and abilities. We feel privileged to help local families to by developing confident, high achieving students, well prepared for their preferred secondary school.
The students at the centre range from pre-schoolers to A-level students, many arrive at the centre through personal recommendations. Students benefit from an individualised approach, where both the Instructor and assistants are keen to meet the needs of every child.
Students attending the centre include those who find maths or English challenging at school; others looking to increase their academic attainment and others for whom English is a second language.
In the classroom, students enjoy completing their work and are observed by the Instructor or assistant, offering appropriate guidance, support and praise. At each visit, a student will spend up to 30 minutes on a subject. Upon leaving the centre, each student is given daily worksheets to be completed at home.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands.
Here at the Tunbridge Wells Study Centre, our long-term goal is to increase your child’s motivation to succeed; to facilitate effective independent learning and to achieve at the highest level.
I feel incredibly lucky and privileged to be working as a Kumon Instructor as it is very rewarding to witness the sense of achievement that a student gains when mastering a new topic or skill.
Throughout my teaching career, I have worked with children of all ages and abilities and enjoyed helping students discover the joy of learning and make the most of their potential.
Being a Kumon Instructor is extremely worthwhile and I would be delighted to welcome you to the centre, to help your child achieve their potential.

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.
