The Kumon Method of Learning

Kumon is the world’s leading after-school enrichment programme, offering Mathematics and English/Native Language subjects to students from pre-school through university.

In Kumon, we enable students to actively develop their self-learning skills rather than passively receive instructions from Instructors. Kumon students study independently at a level that is appropriate to their ability. By progressing in small steps, they gain the confidence and knowledge to solve challenging problems.

This individualised self-learning method has effectively improved the study skills of millions of students worldwide, maximised their potential and nurtured them to be the best they can be.

1 Advancement beyond School Grade Level

Kumon is an individualised learning method that allows each student to study further and advance beyond his or her current school grade level regardless of age or school grade.

2 Self-Learning

Kumon places great importance on self-learning, encouraging students to read the worksheets, think, and do the exercises on their own.

3 Small-Step Worksheets

Kumon worksheets enable students to study at an appropriate level and to solve problems progressively.

4 Role of the Instructor

Kumon Instructors discover what individual students are capable of achieving and bring out their potential.

How Kumon Helps Your Child To Excel

Boosts Confidence

Kumon’s learning method focuses on a child’s ability rather than age. For instance, a Primary 1 student can study material for Primary 3, depending on their ability. Hence, students can advance beyond their school grade level. Each child progresses at a level that matches their ability. Students who need more time to learn feel less pressured; while students who excel are given more complex study materials to challenge themselves.

Cultivates Independence

The Kumon worksheets are designed to foster self-learning, where students are taught to solve problems by themselves. Examples and explanations within the worksheets encourage students to self-learn. When students complete worksheets on their own, they learn to set goals and solve unfamiliar and challenging tasks independently.

Gain Life Skills

Besides developing academic abilities, students also learn important life skills such as self-discipline and time management. In addition, they gain confidence, a healthy self-esteem and a challenging spirit - to challenge and exceed one’s own limits. Kumon’s approach to education prepares students for today’s world, ensuring they excel in the classroom and in everyday life.

Math is a subject that 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 in the future. This leads them to develop the ability to solve various problems that they will face after entering the real world.

  • Develop mental calculation and reasoning skills
  • Improve students’ problem-solving techniques
  • Prepare students for advanced mathematics

English and Chinese

In the language programmes, we aim to improve students' reading comprehension skills and nurture an interest in reading, both of which enable them to read widely and confidently. With strong reading comprehension skills and through a wide range of reading experiences, we foster students' sense to feel more deeply and their ability to think.

  • Kumon has definitely inculcated very good habits in Yae Ting. She does the worksheets because she wants to read the stories. She is also studying at a level that is beyond her age.

  • Doing Kumon isn’t an overnight thing. It takes time to get through the levels and to complete it in its entirety. This helps me to understand that there’s no easy path to success if I am to achieve my goals in life. Give Kumon a go, keep striving towards the goal of completing the programme because it’s one of the best lessons you can learn.

  • Kumon is really good because school is like a refresher for me. I’ve learned most of the maths in Kumon and I can learn new things quicker. Sometimes the Kumon work can be a bit difficult but you have to get used to being challenged because in life, nothing good comes easy!
