Welcome to our KUMON Study Center. It was opened in 2017 to serve the Basel community and offers both mathematics and English programs, ranging from preschool to high school.
We strongly believe that every child has the potential to learn far beyond our expectations. Therefore, our primary mission is to teach our students to "learn to learn" until they become aware of their own abilities. By monitoring individual progress and ensuring understanding, your child will be motivated and self-reliant, developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills to achieve higher education and success in his or her future job.
The learning centre has three spacious and bright rooms (one of which is reserved for the English programme), which offer a friendly but very studious atmosphere that encourages concentration and learning.
The official language of the Learning Centre is English, as we believe it helps students, even if they are not enrolled in the English programme, to familiarise themselves with a language that they will use regularly in their lives.
This study centre is proud to offer KUMON CONNECT. Click here for more details.
Hello, my name is Marzio Lo Giudice and I am the head of the KUMON Learning Center Basel-Gundeli.
Education has been a fundamental part of my own life, both as a child and as an adult, and I want to help children and students build their own strong foundations in mathematics and English.
As math was my passion, I worked for many years for large IT companies and developed software solutions in the field of applied cryptography (where prime numbers play a key role). Later I led my career in business and management consulting and held various positions (Business Analyst, Project Manager, Key Account, Operations Director) for consulting companies in the telecommunications and pharmaceutical industries.
In recent years, I have felt an increasing desire to give back to society some of what it had given me. I am a husband and father of a daughter. When she started her own learning path with KUMON and I saw the change in her confidence and mathematical skills, I realized that this would be my path.
KUMON enables children to learn and progress independently, based on their own ability, not on their age or school class. Learning subjects they don't know at school creates self-confidence and provides a good preparation for the challenging homework in secondary school and the challenges of the Matura exam.
If you would like to offer your child the best opportunities in life, you are welcome to contact me by e-mail or telephone. I look forward to answering all your questions and making an appointment with you for a placement test.

How long does a class take?
The time taken to complete a day's work may be around 30 minutes per subject. The study time is completely down to each individual and the level of the programme they are currently at.
Please note, that class times and centre days might vary due to current governmental restrictions.
What is the Registration Fee?
To get your child started with Kumon study you will pay a one off registration fee to register them as a student
Fr. 0 Per month
Normally, your child will attend the study centre up to two days per week.
Please ask the instructor, if online classes are currently offered.
Your child will also receive additional sets to work on at home.
KUMON offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, KUMON empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each KUMON student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the KUMON International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. KUMON welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
Students can start learning with KUMON from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; KUMON helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, KUMON will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
As a global programme, KUMON does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the KUMON Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. KUMON operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
KUMON is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each KUMON Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
Winston ist ein Junge von fünf Jahren, sehr fröhlich, voller Energie, freundlich und gesprächig. Er fing bei KUMON an, weil er lernen wollte, auf Englisch zu schreiben. Die Mutter bemerkte seine Freude am eigenständigen Lernen, als er versuchte, die Buchstaben aus Büchern abzuschreiben. Was ihm jedoch die größten Schwierigkeiten bereitete, war das Stillsitzen, und seine Aufmerksamkeitsspanne war sehr kurz.
Als Leo 5 Jahre alt war, bemerkten die Erzieher in seinem Kindergarten, dass er ein Händchen für Zahlen hatte. Seine Mutter beobachtete ebenfalls mathematischen Fähigkeiten bei Ihrem Sohn, deshalb brachten seine Eltern ihn zu KUMON.
Die 11-jährige Selin aus Frankfurt und ihre Mutter berichten von den Veränderungen, die KUMON bei Selin bewirkt haben. Unter anderem, wie sich die Angst vor Mathematik in den Wunsch, Mathematik zu studieren, gewandelt hat.
