The Table View centre opened in 1998 and offers both the Kumon Maths and English programmes, which are for all ages and abilities. The current students’ ages range from four to eighteen years old. The centre is situated in a very central location, just off Parklands Main Road, at 12 Redcliffe Road, on the corner of Redcliffe Close and Redcliffe Road.
Students complete individually-set daily work at home, and attend class at the centre twice a week, for 30 – 45 minutes per subject.
In the centre, there are separate areas for pre-school learners, Maths students, and English students. Currently, the Table View Study Centre has a team of 10 well-trained assistants who are friendly and approachable, and are available to aid students’ development.
Supplementary class activities support students’ learning. Reading is encouraged and we provide a fully stocked library, guided by Kumon’s well-researched Recommended Reading List. Staff at the centre provide instruction, observe students, test progress, work closely with newly-enrolled students, and give support, praise and feedback.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. In order to recognise academic ability, the centre holds an annual awards ceremony to reward those who are working ahead of their school grade level.
When students can find joy in learning, they are able to take on new challenges with ease and grow in confidence. Our goal is for all students to achieve their greatest potential by working through the Kumon programme and finding enjoyment through learning.
My name is Bianca Masoet and I am the instructor at the Table View study centre. I have succeeded my mother by taking over instruction of the Table View centre which was under her careful and expert leadership for the past 25 years. I am proud to be able to continue the legacy that has been a big part of our family for many years.
I was lucky enough to have been exposed to Kumon at a very young age, having worked on the Maths programme from the age of 8 years old, up until the age of 17. From high school, I went on to study a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Cape Town, and then completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, specialising in high school Mathematics, Accounting and Economics. My love for Maths came from having a strong ability in the subject and I owe a lot of that to Kumon. Not only that, but the self-discipline and eagerness to learn that comes with studying the Kumon method, definitely attributed to my success in many areas of my education.
I have been a high school Mathematics teacher for the past 10 years and after having my first child, I decided that I wanted to make a career change but still wanted to remain in education. I am passionate about my students and their progress – I am passionate about people in general and building relationships and being a Kumon instructor has allowed me to do just that.
What I love about the programme is that it is made for any person, at any age and of any ability. The programme is structured in such a way that each student is able to work individually and make their way through the programme in a way that is best suited to them and their individual potential. It seeks to develop students to become independent self-learners with a keen interest in learning and taking on new challenges.
With Kumon, I am no longer just a teacher; I am a facilitator, a leader, and a partner in every one of my students’ Kumon journeys.

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.
