The centre provides the Kumon Maths and English Programmes for students of all ages and abilities and has been serving the local community for many years.
Most of the students at the centre attend schools within the area and live in the local community. The current age range of students at the centre is four to 16 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
There are five assistants who help the Instructor with classroom work, to support the student’s development, provide encouragement and help your child to settle in quickly.
My name is Martin Stocks and I am pleased to be the Instructor at the Kumon York, Haxby Study Centre, which has now been operating for over a decade. For me, it is a privilege and a responsibility to contribute to the development of young people.
I became interested in the Kumon Method of Learning at a time when I was looking for ways to support and develop my own two children. When I visited the study centre for the first time, I was so impressed to see the positive attitude and abilities of the students for myself that I knew it was for me!
For the last 20 years, I have been involved in education with adults and young people in a wide variety of contexts, but finding ways to help them foster their own success has been something I have always aimed to achieve.
I feel happy and proud when I can develop young students’ knowledge, understanding and application in topics to levels far beyond what their school age would typically expect.
I look forward to welcoming you to the centre where you can experience the possibilities for yourself.

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.
