Hello, my name is Carol Woods and I'm the Instructor at the Drumcondra study centre.
I have always been passionate about education and learning, and as a parent I’ve always wanted the best for my children. After doing some research, I found that Kumon has a unique method of learning, with individualised study programmes for each child.
Being both a Kumon parent and an Instructor has given me a unique insight into the benefits of Kumon. It really does provide a positive influence on a child's performance at school, and homework is no longer the drawn-out affair, as it used to be. I have also seen each of my children develop in confidence and mental ability.
I am lucky to be supported by a team of bright and motivated assistants who help me in the calm, focused atmosphere of the study centre.
One of the most rewarding elements of my role is seeing each child improve week-on-week, gaining confidence in topics that they may have once struggled with or thought beyond their grasp.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Drumcondra study centre. We enrol students all year round, so please do not hesitate to give me a call for further information.
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.
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.
Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving 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, either in the centre or their online class, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
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.
