Do you care about
your child’s
future ?
We do as well.

For the child’s future, what is more important than test scores is the ability to realize the dreams .
It depends on both “Attitude” and “Ability”.

In this ever-changing era, if a child possesses the key “qualities”, even at his/her early school years or after graduation, s/he will have self-confidence and stride to become a global talent.

For over 60 years, Kumon has been dedicated to nurturing children to master the “inner strengths” to realize their dreams in over 58 countries and regions.

Only Smart Kid can become Global Talent?

Not necessarily.

Every child, like a seed, will eventually grow into a big tree. Their starting points and journeys vary but they are seeds with boundless potential. As long as they are provided with appropriate sunlight, water and nutrients, every seed will grow into a robust tree.

A good learning method will nourish your child.

Tiny seed
Slowly absorb and grow

Children are curious and enthusiastic in learning. However, they may not have the right learning method and thus they are yet to breakthrough.

The Kumon Method of Learning:
No matter how you think about your child, it could still be too early to jump to conclusions at this stage. Children grow at different pace. Take the "Kumon Diagnostic Test” to understand the child’s progress.

Seedling
Small leaves have grown but it is not strong enough to rise quickly

Children are smart but may not have interest in learning.

The Kumon Method of Learning:
Tailor-made appropriate starting point according to the child’s ability level, focusing on motivation and interest.

Young plant
Growing healthily but yet to become a robust tree

Steady progress in learning but yet to grow exponentially.

The Kumon Method of Learning:
Through studying meticulously designed systematic worksheets, children are inspired through self-learning step-by-step, and gradually accumulate adequate academic skills.

A Grown Tree
Robust and bloom

Brilliantly performed and if guided appropriately, it could achieve excellence.

The Kumon Method of Learning:
Guide and inspire children to self-learn, willing to take up challenges, give room, and thus the child could break through their limit and learn beyond their school grade.

For over 60 years, the Kumon Method, based on a learning method developed by its founder who is an educational expert, has witnessed the growth of many children and how they realize their dreams across the world.

Kumon

One father’s love for his son gave birth to the Kumon Method of learning.

Toru Kumon, founder of the Kumon Method of learning, was born in Kochi Prefecture, Japan. After graduating from Osaka Imperial University, Faculty of Science, Department of Maths, he became a high school Maths teacher for many years. Seeing that his P2 son’s Maths test results were not as good as they usually were, he started to make worksheets for his son to practice each day comfortably. As improvements in his son was obvious, he established the Osaka Institute of Mathematics (later became the Kumon Institute of Education Co.).

“By discovering the potential of each individual and developing his or her ability to the maximum, we aim to foster sound, capable people and thus contribute to the global community.”

What we care about most is “each individual child”.

The Four Strengths of Kumon

“We wish that all people in all countries and regions in the world will have the opportunity to learn with the Kumon Method, and that each individual in the world will be enthusiastically self-learning and making efforts towards realizing his or her goals and dreams.”

1. Individualized Instruction

Kumon instructor decides an appropriate starting point and sets up a study projection regardless of age and school grade.

2. Self-Learning

With nurturing children’s self-learning ability as our goal, we let them progress at their own paces and gain confidence in the process.

3. Small-Steps Worksheets

We believe the best learning progress is the “just-right” level of progress.

4. Kumon Instructors

Kumon instructors will observe the child’s learning ability, ways to solve questions, personality and learning attitude to provide effective instruction, which contributes to building his or her ability to solve problems.

FAQ

Kumon Traditional style tuition
Goal Pursue children’s potential and nurture their learning abilities (study habit, concentration, motivation, etc.) which are beneficial for a lifetime. Improve academic performance
Worksheets Developed by professional teams and used globally. We keep revising the worksheets based on real practices in order to make them even more effective. Usually based on school syllabus
School grade Regardless of age and study at the just-right level. The child will take the diagnostic test and the instructor will decide an appropriate starting point, set up a study projection, stage goals and a study plan according to the child’s ability. Group study with standardized progress according to school grade and school syllabus.
Instructor A team of instructors who have undergone systematic training and maintained continuous learning, giving children proper guidance and inspiring them to learn by themselves. Kumon instructors will not directly teach the children in the first place on how to solve the problem. Instead, they guide the children to solve and explore new knowledge according to their ability so as to improve their self-learning ability. Be taught directly on how to solve questions and lack of chance to self-learn.

Many parents think that Kumon is tutoring on homework, tests and exams based on the child’s immediate academic needs.

In fact, Kumon takes a relatively comprehensive and long-term approach in nurturing children. Together with parents, we want to nurture confident and self-disciplined children.

Kumon:

  1. Learn what your child can do
    Kumon programme is not limited by school textbooks or school grades. Through the diagnostic test and observation, our instructors find what your child can do and what needs to be strengthened. The instructors formulate a personalized learning plan based on the child’s strengths and weaknesses, and target to improve his or her learning confidence and performance at the beginning.
  2. Let your child master a self-learning attitude that is useful for a lifetime
    Kumon’s mission is to cultivate children’s self-learning attitude. Instead of step-by-step monitoring or nagging the child, instructors use unique Kumon worksheets and instruction methods to guide children to read examples and solve problems by themselves, and not rely on others. Even for new questions that the child does not fully understand, the child could use what s/he has previously studied, applying what is learnt.

Kumon’s learning contents cover from kindergarten level to high-school level. Kindergartners, elementary school students and high school students can learn with Kumon. With over 60 years of experience in education, we found that the sooner children begin, the easier they can build a good learning habit and be well-prepared for the future study. Therefore, we suggest parents have their children enrolled in Kumon once they reach the age of three.

The child has to go to the centre once a week, so the instructor can understand the recent learning situation and assign appropriate worksheets for the child to study at home daily. As every child (even if they are in the same school grade) has different start points and ability level, the time they stay in centre each time could be different. Generally it takes 30-45 minutes to complete a study flow.

The child should go to Kumon centre once a week.

  1. Enter the centre and submit homework to mark.
  2. Make corrections of the previous week’s homework (if any), and start the day’s classwork: Under the guidance of the instructor, your child will do corrections of last week’s homework, and then start concentrating on the classwork. After finishing the classwork, record the finishing time.
  3. Submit the classwork and do corrections: your child’s classwork is marked and s/he will correct the mistakes of the day’s classwork until it is all correct, obtain 100 marks and receive compliment from the instructor.
  4. Oral check/Learn with supplementary learning tools:
    • Oral check with instructor (for language programs students)
    • Flashcard practice (for elementary-level students of ERP or Chinese program)
    • Count numbers, practice with the magnetic number board or the multiplication table
  1. Review the day’s performance with the instructor and understand the expectation and content of the newly assigned homework

Kumon emphasizes on “just-right level of learning” and thus the amount of work and progress are assigned according to the progress of your child, and the time they spend in class are different.

Generally speaking, it takes 30 minutes to finish homework daily. Kumon has its systematic worksheets. Step-by-step, from an easy starting point, your child can self-learn to an advanced level. It allows your child to tackle topics they have not learnt at school at ease. After they enter the advanced study, they learn from the examples and grasp the essence with their own ability, and at the same time it enhances their self-learning ability. They could perform well both academically and develop good personal qualities.
