Our Programmes and Benefits

The Kumon Method aims for students to go beyond their school grade level through self-learning and advance to studying high school level material at an early age.

When studying at the “just-right” level students think for themselves and complete the exercises. When they get stuck they look at the hints and examples incorporated in the worksheets and figure out themselves how to do the exercises. In this way, continued study at the “just-right” level fosters the ability to learn on their own, or as we say at Kumon, “self-learn.”

Students then use that self-learning ability to advance independently beyond their school grade level to higher levels and more difficult exercises.

Thus Kumon study makes it possible for students to advance to high school level material at an early age.

To sum up, the Kumon Method is a learning method that pursues the potential of each individual student and develops his or her ability to the maximum.

We at Kumon believe in the vast potential of our students and want to further develop each student’s ability. Born out of the bond between a parent and child, the Kumon Method of learning faithfully carries on the thinking and ideas of its founder Toru Kumon. At the same time, we constantly strive for something better by continuing to develop our worksheets and instruction method. And today, this learning method continues to go beyond the borders of countries, race, culture and traditions,
to reach more and more countries and regions throughout the world.

Mathematics

The Kumon Maths Programme aims at building a firm foundation in mathsematical skills in children through self-learning. Starting from recognising numbers for young children, the Kumon worksheets help learners to progress towards high school level and master mathsematical concepts such as equations, factorisation, permutations, matrices, graphs etc. In addition, it develops mental calculation skills, analytical skills, and logical thinking ability required for the long run.

In Kumon, children studies at their own pace using the worksheets that are ‘Just right’ for them, i.e. the content in the worksheets are neither too easy nor too difficult. Kumon instructors provide a free assessment known as the Diagnostic Test to gauge the child’s ability and assign an appropriate starting level. Gradually the difficulty level increases in small steps allowing them to advance beyond their school grade level.

With regular Kumon study, your child will efficiently improve the skills to achieve their goals in the shortest possible amount of time. This further leads to the development of essential life skills and the ability to overcome various challenges in the future with confidence.

English

The Kumon English programme is designed to cultivate a high level of reading ability in students. The programme starts at a level where students are able to build reading and word recognition skills. Gradually students learn about sentence structure, paragraph building, summarization, and acquire the necessary mindset to analyse passages critically.

Through the Kumon Method, students self-learn at their own pace using the worksheets that are ‘just right’ for them. In addition to the worksheets students also have an exposure to a wide range of books through which they acquire a greater interest in reading which facilitates learning advanced materials with independence and confidence.

In order to achieve the desired goals, Kumon instructors provide a free assessment to students known as the diagnostic test to gauge their ability and assign an appropriate starting level. The Kumon English programme not only helps students in their academics but instills in them a love for reading, enrich vocabulary and fosters fine character development.
