About this centre

The Goodwood Study Centre is located at 101 Stewart Street, which is very central and easily accessible from all sides of Goodwood. It is within reach of some of the biggest schools in the area.

The study centre has a low student to assistant ratio, with three well trained assistants, and the Instructor constantly observing and availing herself to the students. The centre has a warm, friendly atmosphere where students find it comfortable to work through their Kumon study. The assistants in the study centre are young, helpful and bilingual so they can relate to all students.

The youngest learners range from as young as four up to senior high school level. Many learners have been at the Goodwood study centre since its inception in June 2012. These students are working hard at completing the programme and are receiving the required instruction, support and motivation to get them to complete the programme.
My name is Aysha Gani-Mohamed. I opened the study centre in Goodwood in 2012. I obtained postgraduate business degrees from Wits [BComm (Law, Marketing) and BComm Honours (Business Economics)] and pursued my career in the corporate world after qualifying. During my time in the corporate environment I felt a constant tug towards working with children, as I’ve always had a natural inclination toward them.

After working at companies like Philips SA and Woolworths, I took on a position as brand manager for a foods company where a major part of my profile was to market and develop their range of food products aimed at children. It was during my time in this position that I recognized my definite passion for working with children.

I also had children of my own at this stage and began looking for a program that would develop them to always be one step ahead to have an edge in the academic environment. It was then that I came across Kumon. I researched the program for my own children, and the more I learnt about it the more I realized that the program was extraordinary. To me, it was remarkable that I could start my young ones off early and develop in them the necessary study skills to master both Maths and English. They could work on material that was individualized for them, spending much time on foundation level work as the building blocks to more advanced subject matter.

As I researched the program I realized that the program could be of tremendous benefit not only to my children, but to the children in my community. It was then that I opened the Goodwood study centre.

I believe without a doubt in the brilliance behind the Kumon program and I see the difference it makes in the lives of not only the children I work with, but also their parents. If a learner and their parents commit to the program, there is no limit to the academic excellence they could achieve through good instruction. There is no greater reward for me than the results I get from my learners.

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.
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.
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.
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.
