Kumon is a specific style of learning and I can now see how this repetition is working. My son is super speedy in maths, confident with his numbers and can apply his independent learning skills in school. After the first few weeks I was unsure as the papers seemed easy and repetitive, however nearly a year later it’s clear how they have given my son such confidence.
I can also see how it is getting him ready for exams by working on his own, comprehension questions etc.
I would highly recommend but don’t expect a ‘normal’ tutor experience as this is a way of learning and if you stick with it then you see the rewards.

I recently enrolled my 7 year old on the Kumon Maths programme which requires him to study between 20-30mins everyday! It seems to be working well as of yet, he’s doing the work on his tablet which was the option I went for (partially because you don’t have to mark the work everyday – which was a bit of a put off for me) but honestly within just a month I can seen the speed in his mental maths and he seems to to enjoying doing it on this Kumon app. It’s still early days but I am hopeful so far, in that he’s studying daily. The digital study can be a bit costly as you need to have your own device but I think most kids these days do have some sort of access to computers and tablets.

As a parent of three teenagers, I have tried many different supplementary education providers and from experience can say that Kumon has really been useful in supporting and improving my children’s maths and reading skills. It is a long term programme and it really depends on what you want to achieve from it. My children did both maths and English in Kumon for a few years up to their GCSEs and all achieved the grades they wanted to get into their A Level choices. They have all stopped Kumon now as the work load at A Levels and University is too intense. It’s a shame Kumon does not offer Science programmes as I had to get separate Science tuition for my boys GCSEs whilst they were still doing Kumon and this can be quite expensive!!

I’ve done both math and English at kumon Battersea since the age of 7 and, whilst at first, the daily work seemed like a burden, I’ve now realised I was doing work 2-3 years ahead of my school year. I’ve recently graduated from the maths program and I can say that starting early is a huge advantage and the hard work really pays off. I would highly recommend starting kumon early as it really does come in useful in the later school years, up to GCSE and beyond!

Found Kumon Battersea to be very repetitive and boring, within weeks of the free trial, child totally lost interest in maths as the tutor kept giving the same repeating worksheets, despite feedback that they were too easy. The tutor was also rude when I wanted to stop.

Kumon has to be the most boring thing ever, it’s nothing but crap, I despise it so much! The reason why I hate it is because it’s daily and when summer time is here kumon has to ruin your time, burn in hell kumon!!!

I enrolled my daughter at the kumon in tooting and my poor girl hates it. She cries every time she goes there and as I have signed a contract I need to pay for the 6 months. I find this disgusting as we never know how our children will take something. I have addressed my concern with the tutor and requested to withdraw but she told me that there is no way out of the contract.

My son has been going to Kumon for a year now but he neither improved in his maths nor English. The teacher focuses on repetition ( +1 exercise until 100 and more 🤷🏾♂️) rather than training to improve their arithmetic skills. The teacher is so stuck up she couldn’t even want to listen to comments based on our observations. So defensive and illogical on her arguments. Her main argument is “This is Kumon’s way of teaching” as if it is some sort of dogma.
The worksheets are so repetitive to the point that your kid will hate to even have a look at it.
