I have been a Kumon Instructor for almost 15 years and thoroughly enjoy seeing students excel and progress.
Many of my students, as well as my own children, attend Grammar school, thanks to their Kumon study, and therefore I understand how important it is to create a strong foundation in Maths and English at an early age.
I have received awards for long service and for nurturing students to completion of the maths and English programmes. We work with students of all abilities – some may be struggling in school, while others may need to be challenged. I find it very rewarding to work with my students to help them to achieve their full potential.
I like to keep in regular contact with parents/carers to keep them informed of their child’s progress, as I believe that they play an important role in their child’s study. Formal progress meetings take place regularly and on demand. Parents are always welcome to contact me outside of class by email or telephone to discuss their child’s progress.
I am also proud to be an Elite Kumon Instructor, based on the high quality of instruction and student progress at my centre. I have also presented at Kumon conferences to fellow Kumon Instructors and I am currently a member of the Kumon Instructor Advisory Committee.
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.
