The Kumon Winchester Study Centre was established in 1996. Students are allocated a set time of arrival when they register, and usually spend between 40 and 60 minutes in the centre per subject.
Kumon is an individualised programme suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Students at the centre vary in age from five to 18 years old and some have been studying with Kumon for over 12 years.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Along with the Instructor, Rachel Reeve, the centre's team of ten trained assistants are on hand to provide guidance where necessary. Students see the Instructor before they leave for the chance to talk about their progress and goals, reassess their abilities and to be given appropriate feedback and praise for their achievements at every visit.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
My name is Rachel Reeve and I have been a Kumon Instructor in Winchester since 1996.
Being a Kumon parent, I understood first-hand the benefits of long-term Kumon study. Every day I am impressed by the power and flexibility of the Kumon programmes! It is very exciting to be able to help those students who are struggling with their school lessons, as well as challenging those students who are excelling in maths and English. I love the opportunity to be involved with the education of individual students over many years, often seeing them develop their skills from Primary school to GCSE level and beyond.
At the 20th Anniversary Instructor conference held in Brighton in 2011, I received an award for the longest Average Length of Stay for students studying the English programme. I have also received awards for nurturing Completers for the maths and English programmes, as well as long-service awards which I feel celebrate the commitment I dedicate to my centre.
My staff at the centre and I work hard to ensure that all the students develop their maths and English skills as well as learning to be confident, independent learners. I would therefore like to publicly thank all my staff for helping to make the Winchester Study Centre a success.

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.
