Why Continuous Learning During the School Holidays Is Important For Your Child?

With the school holidays nearing, keep your children engaged daily with Kumon in the convenience of your home.Studies conducted in the US have shown that students could lose up to a month’s worth of learning over an extended period of downtime, such as during the year-end holidays. It was also highlighted that these “learning losses” were more prominent for math than for language.

When the new school term begins in 2022, teachers will start on the latest syllabus at a breakneck pace, and your child may struggle to keep up if unprepared. Therefore, the preparation for your child’s academic success next year starts now as it is the ideal time for your child not only to catch up and retain what they have learned in 2021 but to advance and get ahead on their studies!

With Kumon, you can reap the benefits of continuous study to prevent “learning loss” during the year-end holidays and help your child catch up, keep up and move up with their learning. Cultivate soft skills and abilities such as independence, confidence and perseverance towards learning. Seize this opportunity to strengthen your child’s foundational skills in Maths, English & Chinese.

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

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

The goal of Kumon is to develop independent learners, meaning minimal supervision from parents, children who take charge of their study routine and problem-solve homework by themselves through daily practice, learning from mistakes and developing the “never give up” mentality 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

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

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

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 his/her 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.

Our Programmes

Each Kumon student’s learning journey is individually determined by his/her ability. From preschool to primary school and beyond, the Kumon worksheets used will help your child advance incrementally and significantly beyond his/her school grade.

Maths Programme

1

Maths requires an accumulation of knowledge through practice. While enhancing their calculation skills, students also cultivate their mathematical analysis and logical thinking abilities which will be indispensable in their lives, now and in the future. This sets the groundwork for solving the problems they will face in life.

  • Develop mental calculation and reasoning skills

  • Improve students’ problem-solving abilities

  • Prepare students for advanced mathematics

Language Programmes

2

Besides improving students’ reading comprehension skills, we aim to nurture an interest in reading – widely and confidently. This leads them to expand their minds, igniting their curiosity to read beyond the lines, think critically, make connections and come to their own conclusions – the key to expanding their knowledge and understanding of the world.

  • Develop reading skills and reading habits

  • Improve reading comprehension and critical reading skills

  • Enrich and expand students’ vocabulary

My motivating driver to completing the Kumon program is about building confidence to solve a problem independently. I have learnt the importance of practicing to understand the formula better and learning independently through examples. These are crucial in building my confidence when attempting a higher level of difficulty in the programme. It also gave me great self-satisfaction when I got the correct answer.

      Kumon students range from preschoolers to secondary school students.

      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 51 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.

      In accordance to the Government’s guidelines, our centres are providing the options of remote classes and/or a hybrid-learning approach of in-centre and remote classes to provide greater convenience, safety and assurance for all students who enrol in Kumon.

      All you need is an uncluttered table, a pencil, an eraser and a device equipped with a camera and microphone function to continue learning with Kumon at home.
