Welcome to the Wollaton Park Study Centre.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised study.
Many local children attend the centre as well as children from afar. The youngest students at the centre are currently pre-school age and the oldest ones are at college. Children of all abilities, including those with special needs, attend this class, some because they have difficulties at school and others because they enjoy a challenge and are working well ahead of their school year. Many students attend because their parents want to help them develop their confidence.
My class assistants are on board to ensure each student reaches their full potential. One of my class assistants has sign language skills which facilitates communication for children or children’s parent who are deaf.
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.
Hi, my name is Shruti Dogra and I have been the Instructor for the Wollaton Park Study Centre since 2015. My experience with Kumon started as a Kumon parent, an invaluable experience that has allowed me to appreciate the benefits of the Kumon Method of Learning.
My motivation has been to make a difference to the future of as many children as possible. I really enjoy watching my students become more confident individuals and acquire skills that benefit them across all academic subjects and in other areas of their lives. I have seen many students develop an enjoyment of reading and parents have been delighted by the improvements in students’ school reports and exam results.
The students in my class range from age three to 16 years. I am supported by a capable team of trained assistants. Each student is given work at their appropriate level and is observed and assessed at each class they attend. I regularly review the progress of my students and provide feedback to them and their parents, however, parents are welcome to contact me at any time outside of class by email or telephone to discuss their child’s learning.

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.
