Learn The Skill Of Self-Learning At This After-School Enrichment Programme In Singapore

For 24 years, KUMON has helped youngsters in Singapore gain confidence through self-learning. See the method up-close and- personal through the eyes of an instructor.

It is amazing to see how a child as young as 3 years old coming into class, not being able to sit still for more than five minutes,” muses Jaslyn Hoon, who’s been a KUMON instructor in Singapore for seven years.

“But, with time, that student starts to transform into one who clambers onto the stool and starts writing independently, fully engaged and on-task for 20 minutes at a go.” The best part? “Such transformation is not an uncommon sight,” she says.

Sounds incredible, right? Well, ever since the KUMON method was first developed 65 years ago in Japan by a math-teacher father for his own son, it has excelled at discovering the “boundless potential” in children through individualised instruction. In Singapore alone, there are more than 13,500 active enrolments at 86 centres around the island (compared to just one centre when KUMON came to Singapore in 1995!).
