The Kumon Method was first established in Japan in 1958 and has developed over the past 60 years to become a worldwide phenomenon. Classes have been opened in over 60 countries and regions with over 3 million students. Kumon offers Maths, English and Chinese programmes in Hong Kong and Macau.
The Kumon Method is a child-centred learning and an individualized learning method that allows each student to study at a comfortable level, regardless of age or school grade, and advance beyond his or her current school grade level.
The Kumon Method aims to develop children’s self-learning ability, allowing them to explore new knowledge on their own. They think for themselves by observing examples in the worksheets and gradually improve their self-learning skills under the guidance of the instructor.
Kumon worksheets are designed to take students from easy problems to difficult problems in very small steps. This enables each student to study at an appropriate level and advance smoothly through the programme.
Kumon Instructors are committed to discovering the abilities of each child and realising their potential. They look closely at each child’s learning ability, personality and his or her problem-solving skills to provide effective guidance so that each child can study at a “just right” level.
