Kumon Benefits

Enjoy Self-Learning

The Kumon Method is an individualised learning method. Each student progresses at his or her own pace. The Kumon Instructor supports each student in developing his or her self-learning ability.

It is essential to foster confidence

The key to individualised instruction is to study at the “just right” level. The starting point for each Kumon student is determined individually. Students start with a level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own.

The Kumon worksheets are structured to foster self-learning

The worksheets have been designed in a way that allows students to figure out how to solve problems on their own. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when moving on to new topics, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently at all times

By progressing at one’s own pace, advancing beyond school grade level is possible

If children continue to study at their own pace, at a level that is appropriate to their ability, they will catch up to their school grade level and eventually advance far beyond it.

It is important to develop daily study habits

Students go to a Kumon Centre on a regular basis, while worksheet study is carried out daily at home. Therefore, parents play a very important role in the Kumon Method because home study is essential in nurturing good study habits and progressing smoothly with the programme.

Continuous study with the Kumon Method is beneficial in developing your child's future

Continuous study with the Kumon Method fosters essential strengths in children, allowing them to go on and apply what they have learnt even after graduating from school.
