Lade Lawal, Instructor of Kumon Ellenbrook Education Centre

Kumon Ellenbrook Education Centre has moved into a brand-new venue, to help even more students grow their skills in mathematics and English.

Formerly known as Kumon Aveley Education Centre, Kumon Ellenbrook is now located at Ellenbrook Central shopping centre, 11 Main Street, Ellenbrook, WA 6069.

Lade Lawal, Instructor of Kumon Ellenbrook, says the move will benefit her current students and allow even more new students to experience the benefits of Kumon.

“I outgrew my former venue at a local community centre, and have always wanted a professional space to work with my Kumon families”, Lade says. “By having all the resources at my fingertips, I can provide individualised instruction even better than before and adjust students’ progress based on their changing ability with ease.”

“This will allow my students to advance to their current goals even quicker and achieve new goals.”

Franklin finishes English, hones in on Mathematics

Franklin with his Completion of Programme certificate.

Now that he has completed the Kumon English programme, 11-year-old Franklin’s sights are set on finishing Kumon Mathematics.

Completing Kumon English means that Franklin, who is in Year 6, has a highly developed reading comprehension ability that is at a level equivalent to that of a Year 12 student. This is a big assistance for Franklin in school and also means he can explore his passion for books even further.

“Kumon English helped me with my school work, reading and comprehension”, Franklin says. “Kumon also expanded my choices in reading because I wouldn’t normally choose the books that were recommended reading for the [English] programme, but I thoroughly enjoyed these books.”

Franklin lives with autism and ADHD. He can find concentrating and staying on task to be a big hurdle. He says the routine, structure, and daily study habit of Kumon strengthened his overall ability to get things done.

“I didn’t enjoy studying at Kumon in the beginning. I found sitting in the [centre] difficult; I couldn’t focus and complete tasks”, Franklin says. “With Kumon, I was able to improve my ability to complete tasks by studying a little bit every day. The Kumon routine helped me set small goals and achieve them”.

“Now that I have finished English, I am definitely better at sitting in class and getting my work done. I still find it hard to focus, but I have a much better attitude and that makes a huge difference.”

Franklin now wants to apply his newfound strengths to finishing the Kumon Mathematics programme, in which he is currently studying two years ahead of his school grade. While he anticipates that it won’t be easy, Franklin is determined to see it through.

“Each time I make a mistake, I am closer to succeeding”, he says. “Each level is one step closer to the end.”

Throughout his entire Kumon journey, Franklin received the support of his parents and his local Kumon centre.

“My Dad and Mum played a big role in keeping me on track”, Franklin says. “All the staff at the Kumon centre were very encouraging. Each time I saw them they let me know how well I was doing. This definitely helped me persevere and finish the [Kumon] English programme.”

A brand-new venue for Kumon Wollert Education Centre in Victoria

Meera, outside the new venue of Kumon Wollert Education Centre.

We are excited to announce that Kumon Wollert Education Centre is moving into a brand-new venue. This move will help Kumon Wollert support even more students to grow stronger in mathematics and English.

Led by Instructor Meera Suratwala, who established the centre April 2020, Kumon Wollert is now located within The Village Wollert shopping centre, at Shop 7, 335 Harvest Home Road.

Kumon Wollert is now present in a thriving community hub.

“We are now situated in the heart of the community, located right next a primary school, swim school, shops and convenience stores. Students and parents will also not have to travel far to attend our centre”, Meera says.

Prior to establishing Kumon Wollert, Meera was a chartered accountant and certified public accountant with 20 years’ experience. She became an Instructor after seeing the benefits of the Kumon programmes in her own children.

“My daughter joined Kumon when she was four and a half. Within a few months after enrolment, she started reading very fluently. This instilled in her a love of books because she could read herself a story”, Meera says.

“My son joined Kumon when he was only three and a half and could barely hold a pencil. In a few months, he could write simple sentences. I was over the moon. Seeing this progress in my own children motivated me to take up this role and bring out the potential in other children.”

Racing to success in class and on the track

Abeerah, winning her silver medal.

Abeerah, 10 years old and in Year 5 at school, is racing ahead on the athletics track while also catching up in the classroom.

Abeerah is a Kumon English student who caught up to her school grade after just over six months of enrolment.

“Kumon has helped me with my grammar and writing skills, so I know where to put my punctuation, and my verbs, nouns and adjectives”, Abeerah says.

She is also a long-distance runner who has competed at the state-level, representing Western Australia, with her local little athletics club.

“Kumon helps me stay mentally fit and athletics will keep me physically fit”, Abeerah says.

Abeerah is aiming to become a brain surgeon when she grows up. She says that physical and mental fitness will be key for this endeavour.

Shehnaz, Abeerah’s mother, says she has seen quick improvements in her daughter’s reading and writing since enrolling her into Kumon. Abeerah is now up to speed with her grammar, Shehnaz says.

“Abeerah has also been running since she was around six years old”, says Shehnaz, “She began excelling in athletics events at school. Then Abeerah joined her local little athletics club, making it to the state-level, and winning a silver medal in her first event”.

Shehnaz says both Kumon and athletics are great for Abeerah’s overall wellbeing.

“Athletics is one of her favourite sports”, Shehnaz says. “So far, she’s happy with Kumon. It’s helping her with her writing. So, she’s doing well in school and with athletics”.

Since August 2021, Kumon has partnered with Athletics West, the governing body for athletics in Western Australia, to support their outreach programs into local schools. Kumon students and Athletics West athletes both recognise the importance of persistence and practice to achieve results.

Kumon’s support for children’s sport is not limited to WA. To learn about our partnerships throughout Australia and New Zealand, visit: https://au.kumonglobal.com/kumons-ongoing-contribution-to-our-community-in-2022/

A brand-new venue for Kumon Epping Langston Place Education Centre

jwells

Jarrod Dong, Instructor of Kumon Epping Langston Place Education Centre.

Kumon Epping Langston Place Education Centre in NSW is moving into a brand-new venue to help even more students build their skills in mathematics and English.

Led by Instructor Jarrod Dong, who took over Kumon Epping Langston Place (then Kumon Epping North) in December 2021, this centre is now located at Epping Langston Place Centre, 32 Langston Place, Epping NSW 2121. Jarrod says the move will assist him in ensuring that all students’ study at the ’just-right’ level – the point of difficulty between too easy and hard.

“Students will learn most effectively when they are studying at the ’just-right’ level”, Jarrod says. “When operating from a commercial venue, it is easier to adjust the study material assigned to students in class to ensure the most effective level of work is provided”.

“This also allows me to make timely adjustments to each student’s home work to make sure that effective learning continues at home”.

Jarrod aims to welcome many new students into his new venue, and believes his local community will try Kumon Mathematics and English for themselves

“Parents in my community highly value education for their children”, he says. “Kumon provides a long-term learning experience, which helps nurture strong learners who become confident and independent”.

Prior to taking over his own centre, Jarrod was a staff member at Kumon’s Sydney Office where he worked closely with other Instructors as a Field Development Consultant. Before Kumon, while completing his PhD at the Australian National University, he worked as a tutor there and helped develop courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students. He also taught the foundation program at the ANU for international high school students to transition into undergraduate studies in Australia.
