Self-learning helps students to become more proactive learners
At Kumon, we place great value on the ability to study independently and encourage students to discover how to solve problems for themselves without asking for the answer.
Through doing exercises on their own, students gain confidence in their studies and develop the desire to advance further. Our Kumon Instructors do not teach students in a uniform manner. Instead, students are guided with hints and examples on our worksheets to attempt questions independently.
Through this process, our students feel a sense of achievement, motivating them to keep progressing to more advanced topics and concepts. Should students feel any particular area challenging or take a longer time to complete their studies, they review their learning to help them master the content and move on to the next step.
How are Kumon students able to learn new material independently?
Kumon Worksheets are constructed in a manner that enables students to learn and progress in small steps from easy to more challenging material.
Explanations and examples are included with new exercises in the introductory sections to enable students to do the worksheets independently and advance to higher levels of study without difficulty.
Our Instructors place great importance on students developing the ability to understand the concepts at hand and find the solutions to problems on their own. Students are not given quick answers when they approach the Instructors with questions. Instead, they are carefully guided in a way that enables them to comprehend the learning focus and solve problems by themselves.
Students who can pursue their potential independently
We believe it is essential for children to study content beyond their current education level as soon as possible. Helping students advance toward a higher school level of study while still in preschool, primary or secondary school is an important goal.
By advancing beyond their education level, our students greatly develop their academic ability, influencing how they approach their future studies. This gives students more confidence and encourages them to pursue their full potential.
Equipped with the ability to study proactively, Kumon students are better prepared for success as they strive toward their goals and aspirations with their newfound learning abilities.
With KUMON CONNECT, students can now easily access and submit their Kumon worksheets with their tablets anytime, anywhere. Students can learn at home, at the centre, or even on the go with the help of timely hints.
Kumon Instructors will review their students' completed worksheets and learning processes to support their study individually by assigning worksheets suitable to their individual ability levels and providing personalised guidance geared to each of them.
Students can retrieve real-time updates instantly, which helps close their opportunity gaps and further optimise their learning potential. Parents can stay up to date with their child’s study progression and check the valuable insights from Kumon instructors on their learning conditions in class and at home.
The goal of the Kumon Method remains the same. Every student advances at an incremental pace without any learning gaps in their study.

How Does Your Child Benefit from Kumon?

Maths requires an accumulation of knowledge through practice.

Kumon students range from preschoolers to secondary school students. We currently have students as young as three years old studying with us and we help children of any age and ability reach their academic goals. However, we recommend that you enquire first to see if your ideal centre can accept young children.
With the Kumon Method, students start at the level where they can attain a perfect score studying on their own. This fosters a joy for learning, and instils good study habits.
Gradually students begin to study topics they have not previously learned. Through Kumon, students will be able to advance beyond school grade level independently. This develops their analytical ability, develops perseverance and fosters confidence and a healthy self-esteem.
Eventually, students study far beyond school grade level independently. They will excel in their other subjects as well because they have confidence and are applying the self-learning skills developed through Kumon.
Yes. The Kumon Method is an individualised learning method that supplements the Singapore education system.
For the Kumon Maths Programme, the study goal is the self-study of senior high school mathematics with ease. It focuses on the development of strong calculation skills and, by excluding all unrelated concepts which may be covered in school, aim to allow students to advance as quickly as possible on their own to senior high school mathematics.
The study goal for the Kumon language programmes is to achieve advanced reading comprehension skills and the ability to read widely.
Kumon is an independent self-study curriculum. By studying at a level that is appropriate to the child's ability, the child will be able to advance beyond his or her school grade level without being specifically taught.
Self-learning means that students study worksheets and correct their own mistakes independently. The worksheets have been designed in a way to allow students to figure out how to solve problems on their own. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when moving on to new topics, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently.
Instructors observe how each student studies, plans and assigns worksheets and motivates the student. When students encounter difficulties, the Instructor assists the students by giving subtle hints so that they will be encouraged to progress and take on further challenges.
Kumon will help your child improve his or her school grade through the academic knowledge and work skills gained through studying topics beyond school grade level.
We're not the world's leading enrichment programme for academic success for nothing. We have successfully empowered more than 4 million students enrolled in over 24,700 Kumon Centres in 50 countries. Read what our students have to say here.
Kumon's individualised instruction differs from one-on-one tutoring services that provide "quick fix" short-term boosts in performance. If your child is a bit behind his/her peers, our short-term goal is to reach grade-level competency within twelve months.
Through Kumon, your child is able to develop reading comprehension ability, strong calculation ability and analytical ability which are the essential abilities in order to solve problem sums.
Behind every successful student is a supportive parent and your child should be able to complete their daily homework independently as each worksheet builds on skills they will have developed at the previous level.
Students attend classes in their Kumon centre twice a week for about 30 - 45 minutes per session, per subject. In a month, students attend up to eight classes. For every non-class day in a month, students are given worksheets to do at home so as to develop daily study habits.
KUMON CONNECT is a new digital learning platform that brings about accessibility and convenience to students, Instructors and parents. It brings the same individualised study plan and small-steps worksheets, onto your tablet devices. You can learn at home, on the go, anytime, anywhere with KUMON CONNECT.
