- What is the difference between Kumon and tuition?
- While a tutorial helps students with their current lessons in school, Kumon’s goal is to develop strong academic skills in children that will enable them to advance far beyond their current school grade level.
A tutorial is usually a quick and short-term solution for students needing help on a particular topic they are currently learning in school. Moreover, tutorials focus on teaching the student one on one.
Kumon, on the other hand, is a long-term education programme that seeks to build the student’s mastery in maths and reading comprehension ability. The Kumon worksheets have been designed to allow self-learning; meaning, students can study the topics independently without the need to be taught. This self-learning skill that Kumon nurtures gives students the confidence that they can learn anything they set their mind to.
Eventually, as students progress in their Kumon study, they begin to study materials that are one, two, three or even four years ahead of their school grade level!
The Kumon Maths and English Programmes, more than improving the students’ academic skills, equip students with the skills needed to reach their potential. Through daily study of the worksheets, students acquire strong academic abilities and a solid foundation to prepare them for life.
