The Kumon English ProgrammeOur English programme aims to foster a love of reading and learning in every child. Students range from age two to older children, building skills from reading and word recognition to advanced level comprehension with the ability to critique complex passages of text. Vocabulary, grammatical precision, memorisation skills and the ability to compose answers are gradually accumulated through different genres of text, familiarising students with both fiction and non-fiction, expanding their knowledge of the world and introducing them to new areas of interest.
Our Instructors support students to be able to read thoroughly, extract key information from the content and express an opinion on what they have read in a compelling way. The Kumon English Programme is not tied to any curriculum but complements learning across all subjects at school, giving students the freedom to become advanced, independent and enthusiastic learners, as well as thoughtful individuals.

How does Kumon work?
Kumon students complete daily Kumon study at home and attend their study centre twice a week. The time taken to complete a day’s work may be around 30 minutes per subject, although this study time can vary.
When visiting the study centre, students complete their day’s worksheets and are observed and guided by the Instructor and a team of Assistants. Time spent at the study centre allows the Instructor to support your child in their studies and ensure that they are progressing well. Whilst at the study centre, students hand in work that has been completed and marked at home, as well as collecting work for the following days until their next study centre visit.
