My name is Niamh Herron and I opened the Clontarf Study Centre in December 2011.
I became interested in running a Kumon centre when I saw first-hand its benefits after my own children started studying Kumon. I was very impressed with the power and flexibility of the Kumon programmes and believe that every child, regardless of their age or ability, can advance their literacy and numeracy skills. It is just a matter of getting the right practise in place and working at the correct pace.
It is incredibly fulfilling to see some students change from being those who try to avoid what may be their weaker subject to those who love that subject and enjoy the feeling of being good at it.
I know that family life can be hectic at times, so it is fantastic to see the commitment given by my Kumon families to adhere to the daily study, marking and corrections and for them to realise the benefits gained by this discipline.
I have always had a passion for learning and love to see children do well not only academically but also in personality, through encouragement and support.
Being a Kumon Instructor affords me the privilege of working with children and with parents who are totally committed to improving their child's educational experience.
