The centre aims to develop independent, proactive and capable individuals. The centre offers Maths and English programmes that follow the Kumon method, which has enjoyed success for years.
The classes are led by the Instructor, Rashie Maniram, who is passionate about learning and skills development. Rashie strongly believes in making a difference in the community and hopes that this will transcend regional borders to make an impact on the South African nation as a whole. Rashie has had 13 years of experience in Skills Development and is committed to developing independent, educated learners by tapping into their hidden potential.
By studying the Maths and English programmes, students develop their academic skills. By closely observing HOW they attempt their work, the Instructor aims to develop their independent learning skills and to strive to increase their self-confidence as they overcome one small challenge at a time.
Through the unique Kumon method, children are supported to reach an advanced level of study. By studying beyond the international standard for their age, they are exposed to work that has never been taught to them before, thus encouraging them to explore the unfamiliar rather than to fear it. With Kumon, children are best prepared to succeed in an increasingly global community.
The Glenwood centre welcomes you to start this exciting and rewarding journey of self-discovery.
I am Rashie Maniram the Instructor at the Glenwood Study Centre.
I was first introduced to Kumon through Google. I am extremely passionate about children and people development. I come from years of Financial Services experience and have spent the last of those years in the Skills Development department.
I worked extensively with Skills Development, Learnerships, Internships and Unemployed Youth programmes, and this has established my love for developing the best in people. From this exposure, I realised that there is a dire need to develop young learners’ skills in Maths and English as well as their coping skills. It is very important for me to also develop their life skills, so that they can cope with the academic work independently. I searched for a programme that takes such a holistic approach and the answer to this was Kumon.
I have explored many programmes and Kumon resonates very well with my thinking and value system. I believe every child and person needs an equal chance and with the individualised learning programmes that I’ll strive to offer, each child/person can receive this equal opportunity.
I believe every child in South Africa should get an opportunity to experience Kumon and with this we can make South Africa an independent financial and thriving nation.

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 extra lessons 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
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.
