I was approached by the Hervormde Kerk in Malelane who also saw this gap within the community children and wanted to help. The center is situated within the hall of the church, it offers a welcoming and secure environment for students to feel encouraged to progress at their own pace according to their ability. Students are required to attend class at least twice a week and will receive carefully planned and thought out work to do independently for a small amount of time each day
My name is Sherena Muller and I have been home schooling and private tutoring students both in person and online since 2014. Through my experiences I have come to realize that there are so many children that fall through the gaps of our education system by no fault of their own except that today’s teaching methods are a one size fits all. Children are individual and as such their learning methods and experiences need to be individualized.
Kumon understands that each student has the potential to succeed and nurtures this potential. By helping children to learn through self-study in small steps and at just the right level for each student they succeed not only in Math’s and English but also in all other aspects of life. Kumon teaches life skills that allow children to grow their potential and become contributing members of society.

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.
