So you have heard about the KUMON system from your friends, but not sure if this is right for your children.  How is it different from all the other common tutoring places?  The Kumon method is not about taking tests, it is about helping children learn to learn.   In Hong Kong's highly stressful school system, this offers a stress-free way for children to improve their English and Math skills.  The classes are customised for each student so the student learn at his/her own pace, under a system that develops self-confidence, motivation and a consistent self-learning habit.   The weekly cycle of learning is illustrated below:

1. VISIT A KUMON centre ONCE A WEEK -
Kumon study is individualized for each student, unlike regular class work at school, where students must conform to what is being taught. Students visit a Kumon Centre once a week at a time that is convenient for them during the centre’s hours of operation. They complete the Kumon materials that are individually prepared for them.

2. STUDY FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME WITH TOTAL CONCENTRATION –
The students' goal is to complete the number of assigned worksheets at a pace that is comfortable for them. They spend an average of 20 - 30 minutes working on the material. By fully concentrating on their work, Kumon students develop their own “study rhythm or habit."

3. DEVELOP SELF-CONFIDENCE AND INCREASE MOTIVATION –
Students submit completed worksheets to an Instructor or grader to be corrected. Since the material is always at the “just right” level of the students' academic ability, they usually score with almost 100 percent accuracy. The self-confidence that comes from the feeling of “I did it by myself!” further motivates students to study more.

4. CORRECT MISTAKES, IF ANY –
By discovering where mistakes took place and correcting them by themselves, the students' academic ability is further enhanced. Kumon Instructors are available to give hints and advice when a new study topic is introduced and to help students who do not fully understand how to solve the problem.

5. HAVE ALL SCORES RECORDED AND PROGRESS MONITORED –
The students' daily performance, including the study time and accuracy, are recorded in the Record Book. After careful review of the Record Book and the students' progress, the Instructor decides future assignments.

6. COLLECT THE NEXT HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT, AND IT'S TIME TO GO HOME –
Daily study is one of the basics of the Kumon Method. Before going home, students are given Kumon materials to complete at home before the next Centre visit. Students develop good study habits by fully concentrating on the homework and completing it daily. Parental involvement is crucial to the success of the program. Parents make sure the date and time are recorded on homework sheets, and they sometimes grade the homework. Home grading allows students to receive instant feedback on any mistakes they might have made.
