Individualised instruction — The “just right” level of study

By pursuing the potential of each individual, Kumon nurtures children to be the best they can be

Kumon advocates the value of independent learning. Therefore, individualised instruction is one of the fundamental factors of the Kumon Method. The key to individualised instruction is to study at the “just right” level, in which students can progress on their own without being specifically taught.

The key to individualised instruction is to study at the “just right” level

The “just right” level of study is not simply just the level where students can easily complete the assigned worksheets; it is the level where, at any time with maximum effort, students can progress on their own without being specifically taught.

Students start with their “just right” level and
progress at their own pace

It is essential to start with content that allows children to easily obtain a perfect score at their current ability level. 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.

The Kumon Method is an educational method that does not compare students with one another

Based on individualised instruction and study at the “just right” level, Kumon seeks to develop the skills of each child and bring out the best in them, so that they gain the confidence to challenge problems that they once found too difficult.
