Kumon Utawala Study Centre opened in 2023 and offers the Kumon Mathematics and English programmes. It is situated in Naivas Utawala Mall with free and ample parking. There are many other shops and facilities for parents to use as they wait for their children.
Our Centre is open to learners of all ages and abilities and we can assist anyone who wishes to improve their learning skills. Through the subjects of Maths and English we can help everyone to become independent learners.
The Centre is equipped with a comfortable workspace where students can engage with their work in a safe and healthy environment. The Centre offers the option of either online (via Zoom) or physical in-Centre class sessions as per the Kumon standards of excellence. Class or online times can be adjusted to suit your schedule and there is a well-trained team to provide individualized support to each learner.
We are just waiting for you!!
My name is Abraham Shem and I am the owner of, and Instructor at, Kumon Utawala Study Centre. I am a father of two and an entrepreneur and I am passionate about the success of children.
I have been in the education industry for more than ten years and am an alumnus of Kenyatta University where I got my formal educational training. I have three years’ work experience as an Assistant Instructor at the Kumon Kileleshwa Centre and I have been a private tutor with experience from different educational systems.
I believe education is key but what matters most is how to use the key that has been given to you. How a person is trained and developed will influence how they will be able to use the key of education in life. At the Kumon Utawala Study Centre we strive to not only nurture academic success, but also develop essential skills that our learners can take with them into their future and professional lives.

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 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 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.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but 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.
