Description

It all began in Japan in 1954, when Toru Kumon's son Takeshi came home from school with a poor result in his maths test. His wife suggested that Toru began helping their son; after all, he was a high school maths teacher with 20 years' experience. Toru Kumon began to compile worksheets that would take Takeshi step by step, from the easiest arithmetic to the complex maths he taught in his own classes. The Kumon Method was born. After only a year, it was clear that Takeshi had made excellent progress. Toru's wife encouraged him to allow other children in the neighbourhood to use the worksheets he had developed for his son.
The results were equally impressive. In 1958, the Kumon Institute of Education was established in Osaka. In that first year, it attracted 300 students through word of mouth recommendation alone. In no time, word had spread beyond the city and new centres started to open up all over Japan. Kumon soon became the nation's number one private educational programme.
The Kumon Maths Programme was launched in the UK in 1983, and the English Programme followed in 1997. We now have over 58, 000 students studying at more than 600 study centres across the UK. Kumon is now one of the largest private educational establishments in the world, and is still growing. There are currently 4.2 million children studying Kumon in 46 countries and regions worldwide. In addition to the UK and Japan, Kumon is well established in the USA, China, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Germany and Spain.
