How Kumon Helps To Build Strong Foundational Abilities From A Young Age

Not only does Kumon develop a solid foundation in math and language; we also help children build strong foundational abilities  by cultivating important work and study skills necessary to succeed in today’s world.

The objective of Kumon is to instil in students the right skills and mindset for self-learning. With Kumon’s individualised learning method, children reap the benefits of learning by their ability, not by age. This helps them learn at an optimum level and advance topics beyond their school grades.

Continuous Kumon study helps children improve focus and concentration, cultivate confidence, develop time management skills and become self-motivated, independent problem solvers.

What Makes Kumon So Different From
Other Enrichment Programmes?

  • icon1

    Self-Learning Method

    Kumon focuses on helping students develop the ability to study and problem solve independently without always asking for the answer. Children will build resilience and use this skill to learn independently at home so that they will not give up easily when solving challenging questions.

    Learn Progressively In Small Steps

    Our worksheets enable your child to learn and progress optimally in small steps at the pace perfect for him/her before tackling advanced topics and concepts beyond his/her school grade.

  • icon3

    Impart Key Life Skills

    We do not teach students in a uniform manner but guide them to understand the questions and solve problems independently. Through this, they will develop essential life skills such as determination, independence, confidence and a passion for learning to excel and overcome obstacles in school and beyond.

How Does Kumon Help Your Child to Learn Independently At Home?

Like in-centre classes, the purpose of our remote learning classes is to observe students while they work and only give guidance and instruction when needed. The camera will most often focus on the students’ worksheets, and our instructors will observe how students complete their assigned work before providing specific guidance.

The goal of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learners who can take charge of their study routines and problem-solve homework by themselves through daily practice, learning from their mistakes and developing resilience to do so.

Therefore, the values of independent learning, self-discipline, time management and self-confidence in solving problems that Kumon strives to instil are brought into focus and displayed while doing remote learning, both for school and Kumon.

How Does Your Child Benefit from Kumon?

Achieve Academic
Excellence

Achieve Academic Excellence

At the heart of the Kumon Method is self-learning: we encourage students to read the constantly evolving small-step worksheets, think, and do the exercises independently. We do not spoon-feed students problem-solving methods. Instead, we focus on guiding students to complete exercises on their own so that they enjoy a sense of achievement, are able to master new material independently and constantly push themselves to improve continually.

Develop Strong Foundational Skills

Develop Strong Foundational Skills

Our focus on numeracy and linguistics ensures students develop a solid foundation to achieve excellence in both Primary and Secondary School. We identify, build and enhance the key skills that students need to become fluent readers and junior Mathematicians, giving them a core of confidence and a lifetime of good study habits that they can draw on as they advance in levels.

Develop A Passion For Learning

Develop a passion for learning

Beyond academic success, a natural outcome of the Kumon Method is a solid base for the steep learning curves that come with life. By allowing them to make the choices that support their learning, strengths, and success, your child will develop the confidence to think, do and learn more. This way, he/she develops positive learning and a can-do attitude, turning learning into pleasure and joy.

      Kumon students range from preschoolers to secondary school students. We currently have students as young as three years old studying with us and we help children of any age and ability reach their academic goals. However, we recommend that you enquire first to see if your ideal Centre can accept young children.

      With the Kumon Method, students start at the level where they can attain a perfect score studying on their own. This fosters a joy for learning, and instils good study habits.

      Gradually students begin to study topics they have not previously learned. Through Kumon, students will be able to advance beyond school grade level independently. This develops their analytical ability, develops perseverance and fosters confidence and a healthy self-esteem.

      Eventually, students study far beyond school grade level independently. They will excel in their other subjects as well because they have confidence and are applying the self-learning skills developed through Kumon.

      Yes. The Kumon Method is an individualised learning method that supplements the Singapore education system.

      For the Kumon Maths Programme, the study goal is the self-study of senior high school mathematics with ease. It focuses on the development of strong calculation skills and, by excluding all unrelated concepts which may be covered in school, aim to allow students to advance as quickly as possible on their own to senior high school mathematics.

      The study goal for the Kumon language programmes is to achieve advanced reading comprehension skills and the ability to read widely.

      Kumon is an independent self-study curriculum. By studying at a level that is appropriate to the child’s ability, the child will be able to advance beyond his or her school grade level without being specifically taught.

      Self-learning means that students study worksheets and correct their own mistakes independently. The worksheets have been designed in a way to allow 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.

      Instructors observe how each student studies, plans and assigns worksheets and motivates the student. When students encounter difficulties, the Instructor assists the students by giving subtle hints so that they will be encouraged to progress and take on further challenges.

      Kumon will help your child improve his or her school grade through the academic knowledge and work skills gained through studying topics beyond school grade level.

      We’re not the world’s leading enrichment programme for academic success for nothing. We have successfully empowered more than 4 million students enrolled in over 24,700 Kumon Centres in 50 countries. Read what our students have to say here.

      Kumon’s individualised instruction differs from one-on-one tutoring services that provide “quick fix” short-term boosts in performance. If your child is a bit behind his/her peers, our short-term goal is to reach grade-level competency within twelve months.

      Through Kumon, your child is able to develop reading comprehension ability, strong calculation ability and analytical ability which are the essential abilities in order to solve problem sums.

      Behind every successful student is a supportive parent and your child should be able to complete their daily homework independently as each worksheet builds on skills they will have developed at the previous level.

      Students attend classes in their Kumon centre twice a week for about 30 - 45 minutes per session, per subject. In a month, students attend up to eight classes. For every non-class day in a month, students are given worksheets to do at home so as to develop daily study habits.

      KUMON CONNECT is a new digital learning platform that brings about accessibility and convenience to students, Instructors and parents. It brings the same individualised study plan and small-steps worksheets, onto your tablet devices. You can learn at home, on the go, anytime, anywhere with KUMON CONNECT.
