My name is Chow Chan and I have been the Kumon Instructor at the Worcester East Study Centre for the past two years.
When I became a mother of two, the importance of my daughters’ education became a focus talking point. I researched what was the best programme to give them that extra help and support and I immediately enrolled them onto the Kumon Maths Programme having heard such great things about Kumon. I have now been a Kumon parent for four years and both my daughters are studying advanced maths, where before they had lacked confidence in the subject.
As my eldest daughter transferred to secondary school, she found maths very easy and has been put into the top set. With my youngest daughter, after her first year of studying Kumon, her school report read “your daughter is a maths magician.” This really motivated me to become a Kumon Instructor because Kumon aims to discover potential and provide children with skills they need to become more confident and independent self-learners.
When my students tell me that Kumon has really made a difference, I know that I have made a difference in their lives. What I love most is the individualised study of each child where work is set to their ability, regardless of their age.
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.
