Ability development for any child at any age
Search to find your nearest Kumon centre
The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to develop key foundations for learning. Our unique study method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop ability and fluency before moving on to the next topic. Kumon study is not based on school curriculum or age, allowing children the flexibility to revisit and build skills where they need to and progress beyond school level where their ability allows. Unlike traditional tuition, Kumon study fosters students’ skill in self-learning, building confidence and lessening reliance on a teacher.
Your child will be assessed to enable their Instructor to set work at just the right level for them. Through daily worksheet study they develop ability and fluency. Your child will visit their local study centre for study sessions up to twice a week, where their Instructor will observe their learning growth and set work accordingly. Kumon’s aim is to develop each child into a confident, independent and enthusiastic learner.

My name is Denise Heneghan and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Galway City West Study Centre.
The exceptional core values of Kumon initially attracted me to explore it further and become an Instructor. The fact that Kumon is child-centred, its commitment to liberate potential and its belief that we can all become full, well-rounded individuals who contribute to a global society also attracted me. That we would develop (and become) contributors to a global society has a fundamental resonance for me and the team of very experienced assistants who make the Galway City West centre what it is.
The entire team at the centre are carefully selected for their proven experience in working with young people over an extended period of time, for their individual academic and personal attributes and for their personal achievements due to extended commitment and perseverance.
The growth of students both in confidence and personality is the most rewarding aspect of being an Instructor and a member of staff at the centre. We also love to hear stories of prizes achieved, accolades earned in school and elsewhere, as a result of their Kumon experience. We always try to find a way to celebrate these experiences.
We look forward to welcoming you to the centre.

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.

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 is a self-learning programme but each student receives 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, 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.
