Kumon Mirdif was established in early 2022 with the aim of offering individualised learning opportunity in Maths and English to children in and around Mirdif. Based on the Kumon Method of Learning, our programmes help students to reach their maximum potential and rise above school-grade level. The Kumon Method of Learning which originated in Japan over 60 years ago is specifically designed to aid a child’s education irrespective of their school curriculum.
Located in serene suburban Dubai, our Mirdif study centre is close to a number of schools, sports centres and parks and we pride ourselves in being active participants of this vibrant community. We eagerly welcome children of all ages and academic abilities to our centre where they solve Kumon worksheets specifically designed to cater to their learning requirements. As they progress through the worksheets and develop skills, we foster their self-confidence.
Whether a student opts for online or in-centre study, our Instructors and assistants diligently observe and guide them so that their progress can be furthered by a program which is just right for them. At Kumon Mirdif, we strive to help students develop a lifelong, positive attitude toward study. All our efforts at the centre are to ensure that the time a child spends at Kumon moulds them into a confident, highly-skilled self-learner who relishes their learning journey.
My primary motivation behind becoming a Kumon Instructor in Dubai was my experience of working with Kumon in London. There I worked for two years as an Assistant Instructor with Kumon at the Sloane Square and Hampstead study centres. During this time, I was amazed at the number of children who were successfully completing work above school grade level. The most rewarding part of my job was sharing the joy of learning that children experienced as they progressed through their worksheets.
I have always enjoyed being an educator and over the past 20 years - across 4 countries, I have worked with children in various capacities both in full-time teaching jobs as well as volunteering roles. I have learnt to appreciate that each child is unique in the way they interact with their learning environment and in how they respond to the instructional cues presented to them. I like to keep this in mind as I try to understand each child’s individual learning needs.
I believe that simple solutions are the best and Kumon offers a structured yet simple answer to learning needs of children by putting them first and beginning with the basics. I consider Kumon as an enabler to children’s growth as it is designed to build their skills and self-confidence as they progress on their own, unique learning journey.
As someone who values the role of community in the healthy growth and development of a child, I will be happy to discuss with you and understand your child’s learning needs.

Students can start learning with Kumon in Dubai from the age of six 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 extra lessons 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, 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.
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.
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.
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.
