Ability development for any child at any age

The centre has been operating for over 16 years and offers maths and English programmes to students of all ages and abilities, currently from as young as three years old. Students attend many of the local primary and secondary schools in the Wembley, Harlesden and Neasden area. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The centre provides other activities for students whilst at the centre: there is a range of books from the Kumon Recommended Reading List at the centre that students can read to complement their worksheet study and there is also a 'mental maths' area which, when used regularly, may significantly enhance students' mental arithmetic.
Regular parent meetings are held during the year in order to discuss students' progress and to share study projections. All new parents are also encouraged to attend a meeting after one month of Kumon study.
The class atmosphere is enjoyed by students and prizes are presented to students upon completion of levels and we also provide other ways of motivating students through difficult times of study.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
I have been a Kumon Instructor for 11 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.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
