Learning for the long run
Kumon study helps children of any age and any ability to shine. We aim to give our students the tools they need to enjoy learning and thrive academically. As proven through an independent study conducted by the Education Policy Institute in England in 2020, Kumon students are over a year ahead of the national average, and over six months ahead of their peers in their maths learning at the end of primary school.
Rather than offering conventional maths and English tuition, our Instructors guide their students through work that is set at just the right level for them, keeping them engaged and making progress. They support and encourage students to work out answers by themselves, helping them to become self-sufficient, successful learners for the future. By studying little and often through daily worksheets and regular class sessions (online and/or in centre), our students steadily increase ability and fluency, building their skills in small, manageable steps.
