About this centre

Nestled in the heart of Kenilworth and conveniently located along Main Road, the Kenilworth Study Centre opened its doors in September 2012. It is situated close to multiple schools and there is easy access to various means of public transport. Undercover parking is available at the shopping centre nearby.

The Instructor, together with the two assistants, is always ready to assist and provide guidance to students. Their aim is to provide a supportive environment conducive to learning, where students are developed strategically and holistically to become confident, independent self-learners.

The centre library consists of selected books from a wide range of levels and genres, and is available to learners to encourage an enjoyment of reading.
My name is Taryn Valodia. When I started my tertiary education studying Mathematics, I realised that many of my peers had very weak mathematical backgrounds and struggled with comprehension. I noticed that many of their problems stemmed from poor foundations in numeracy and literacy. This prompted my initial interest in supplementary education.

In 2003 I started my career working with children of varied ages and abilities. My journey led me to Kumon. I took over instruction at the Kenilworth Centre in July 2014.

Since then, I have also enrolled my son. As a parent I understand the commitment it takes to support your child through their Kumon journey, however, I have seen my son grow and develop in many ways and firmly believe that Kumon will continue to help him reach his full potential.

I take a strategic and individualised approach with my instruction to ensure that I can effectively support the development of each of my students. This has allowed me to experience a host of amazing moments in my centre. Seeing how my assistants and I can positively affect the development of a child has been both rewarding and eye-opening.

I want each child to leave my centre knowing and believing that they have accomplished something worthwhile for the day and that they are capable individuals.

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.
