The Kumon York, Clifton Study Centre is based at Clifton Parish Church, Clifton. The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes are designed to help each child fulfil their potential, by developing their abilities in these subjects, helping to build confidence, and fostering academic independence.

Students of all ages and abilities are welcome at the Kumon York, Clifton Study Centre.

The centre provides an encouraging atmosphere, and focuses on developing excellent study skills as an integral part of the Kumon programmes. Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon ensures students maintain a level of development every day.

Following a free assessment, your child will begin at a personalised set starting point, laying a solid base for effective learning. Their progress through the programmes will be monitored and adjusted to their individual needs, ensuring your child continues to grow and achieve.

About the Instructor

My name is Simon Percival and I am the Instructor at the Kumon York Clifton Study Centre.

Having been a teacher of both adults and young learners, in a number of schools around the world, for over 15 years, I have seen a range of different educational establishments and approaches. I believe that Kumon’s 'just right' level approach is the most effective way of maximising a child’s potential in both maths and written English, as well as helping them to develop the related transferable skills which can be applied to any other field of learning.

By starting the child at the 'just right' level, encouraging them to take small steps further every day, tailoring the path and monitoring how those steps are made, the Kumon method helps the child quickly gain the confidence and independence necessary to becoming a self-learner, and to study material far beyond their school-grade level.

Parents and caregivers are welcome to contact me at any time outside of class, by email or telephone, to ask more about the programmes, or to discuss their child’s progress.

Popular Questions

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.
