About this centre
Kumon Parklands West Study Centre opened in March 2000 and is now located at the prestigious Oshwal College on 2nd Avenue with ample parking facilities. We have two well-furnished classrooms for each subject: Maths and English. There are five well-trained, friendly assistants who support the students’ development. The current age range of students is between 4 years old to an adult who is a parent who has been enthused to join her children on this remarkable programme.
A linguist by profession, I started my journey as a Kumon Instructor in 2000. It was a dream come true as I had always been passionate about educating children. I stress the word 'educating' as opposed to 'teaching' as it is my firm belief that children should not be 'spoon fed' by parents or private tutors, but 'empowered' to find and harness their own potential to become leaders in their society.
I became a Kumon Instructor when my own two daughters were aged 5 and 8 so I was able to implement the Kumon method with them as well. So, I too, have been through the ups and downs that come along in the Kumon journey because I was their Kumon Instructor as well as being their mother. I had to find ways of motivating my daughters, which I then shared with other parents at the centre.
Because of my effective communication with my Kumon parents, most of my enrolments come from word-of-mouth referrals. I share a personal yet strict relationship with my students, instilling in them the values of time management and goal-setting as early as possible. Moreover, I understand the huge part that parents play in their child’s Kumon journey; they place a tremendous amount of trust in me as the Instructor.
The most fulfilling moment in my Kumon journey came when, at a Regional Award ceremony, my older daughter who had completed both the Kumon Maths and English programmes, stepped in to address the students and parents about her Kumon journey. There were four other programme Completers at my centre that year.
In conclusion, I would like to share two of my favourite quotes:
"Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write or count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at a pace which is right for each individual child."
"Maths does not teach us how to add happiness or how to minus sadness but it gives us one great hope and that is every problem has a solution."

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.
