About this centre

Although schools are closing – learning doesn’t stop at KUMON!
The KUMON Learning Centre is conveniently located. We are only a few steps away from the bus stop Oberwiesenstrasse (lines 61 and 62). If you still want to come by car, there are a few parking spaces available in the blue zone or in the public car park of the Kantonsschule Oerlikon, entrance at Birchstrasse.

The official language of the learning centre is English, as we believe that, even if students are not enrolled in the English programme, it is very helpful for them to familiarise themselves with a language that they will use regularly in their lives.
I have always been a mathematician-man and have studied advanced mathematics during and after my engineering studies. This is because I grew up in the right atmosphere to understand the beauty of mathematics without being overwhelmed.

This was the same atmosphere in which my son began to learn math in a KUMON learning centre. Moments when children realize that they can solve a problem alone and develop more confidence in their abilities are truly magical.

I am opening my KUMON Learning Center to do my best to support children, to develop logical thinking so that they can enjoy new challenges.

I look forward to seeing these happy and excited faces when they come here and ask for more KUMON task sheets.

Most Popular Questions

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.
