About this centre

The Mokopane Centre was established in 2001, Kumon has become synonymous with good education and enhanced skills.

The location of the centre makes it accessible to learners from most schools in and around the area. In addition to this, it is a child friendly safe environment with full home security, a separate entrance, sufficient parking and a waiting area for parents. Currently at the centre, students are aged between five and seventeen with varying abilities. Students are assigned to time slots to ensure effective learning and instruction. Furthermore, the layout of the centre is conducive to learning and ensures that learners are not easily distracted. A separate day is assigned to pre-school learners who require individual attention. In order to improve the reading fluency, pronunciation and expression of second language speakers, a separate area is provided. This is where supplementary activities such as flashcards and listening exercises on CD’s are conducted.

An additional consideration is that the centre accommodates students who are high achievers, students from disadvantaged communities and students whose first language is not English. Our approach and interventions have to be mindful of this diversity and deal with each group individually.

The Mokopane Centre is overseen by instructor Fatima as well as her team of six competent assistants. Each assistant is assigned a maximum of five learners at any given timeslot. This ensures effective instruction in terms of feedback, observation, goal setting, marking and correcting.

Newly enrolled students are closely monitored to ensure that they are familiarized with centre flow as well as study skills unique to the Kumon method.
My name is Fatima and I have been a Kumon instructor for thirteen years. My first encounter with Kumon was as a Kumon parent. I was very impressed by the simplicity of the Kumon methodology and by the discipline it instilled in my children. The acquisition of independent skills rather than teaching in the conventional sense, is what appealed to me most. My passion for mathematics as well as the knowledge gained from my BSC Degree in Mathematical Sciences steered me towards Kumon. Furthermore, I felt I would be contributing to the community at large since there has always been much anxiety associated with Maths and English.

I find it extremely rewarding working with children and witnessing the improvement in their skills as they overcome many challenges to become independent self-learners.

I have been fortunate enough to have been selected as an elite Instructor KEA(Kumon Europe Africa) and have had the opportunity to interact with instructors nationally and internationally. This, together with being on the Kumon Advisory Committee has benefitted both my students and my own development.

I believe that the success of the Kumon Mokopane Centre is due to my wonderful students, the committed parents and my very able assistants. My personal motivation is the success I see in every child I instructed and I hope to nurture many more learners to reach their potential. If Kumon is able to improve the learning ability of any child, and I can be part of it, then it is for that, that I am truly grateful.

Most Popular Questions

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.
