KUMON is more than just tutoring.
The KUMON method for English and mathematics enables your child to develop his or her abilities to the full. For each child, a diagnostic test is used to determine the current learning status. Based on the individual starting point determined in this way, we continue to work with your child at his own pace and reach the current teaching level as soon as possible. Once the school subject level has been reached, we work with the child to continue learning in good quality above the school subject level.
The advantages of the KUMON method at a glance:
- Individual counselling and learning status recording
- Development and strengthening of concentration, endurance and self-confidence
- Deepening the basics and closing knowledge gaps
- Achievement of sustainable learning success, confidence and joy in learning
- Experience of stress-free learning even over the current school subject matter
- Development into self-learners with well-developed professional and interdisciplinary competences
- Achievement of higher educational goals
Would you like to find out more about how we do this? Take the opportunity to arrange a personal consultation and send us an e-mail so that we can get in touch with you. Only after the consultation do you decide whether and when you would like to register your child.
About learning in itself:
As a teacher and long-time KUMON instructor, I enjoy helping the children to develop a positive learning biography. I am happy for every child who succeeds in experiencing their learning process as something of their own, unique and exciting. I am happy to help your child understand that current learning is an act of the future: Why am I learning and for what? What do I want to become when I grow up and how can I achieve this? How do I have to learn so that I can transcend my limits and grow beyond myself? When do I enjoy learning and how can I increase the joy of learning?
If such questions are consistently included in the learning process, children with special learning topics (such as ADS, ADHS, LRS, dyslexia, dyscalculia, ASS or SES) can also gain a foothold in personal learning, reconcile themselves with their own weaknesses and recognise their personal strengths, develop them and use them for further learning! The KUMON method is very suitable for highly gifted children because the highly gifted child moves forward at its own pace and does not have to wait for other children. Thus this child also comes into learning zones where it experiences its own limits and works to overcome them by developing stamina and perseverance and thus achieving the goals it has set itself by its own efforts. Of course, the KUMON method is also suitable for adults! They also expand their knowledge, skills and abilities and can thus advance to higher levels. I can warmly recommend the KUMON method to seniors who would like to train their mental fitness! To progress daily in English and mathematics at the same time nourishes the brain in the best possible way. This is simply good!

How long does the stay in the learning centre last?
If only one subject is taken, the child remains in the learning centre for about 30-40 minutes. For two subjects, the stay in the learning centre lasts about 45-60 minutes.
How long does the homework take?
For only 1 subject, about 20-30 minutes are needed daily. For 2 subjects about 40-45 minutes are needed daily. The duration of a learning unit, however, depends entirely on each individual and the level of the respective child. In addition, the duration of daily learning can be adjusted at any time. This is particularly important for young children and children who study two subjects. It is very important that no child is burdened with too much homework. That would be counterproductive.
