About this centre

With the KUMON method, we enable your child to optimally develop his or her abilities. Each pupil works independently with learning material that is individually adapted to him or her in terms of quantity and level of difficulty. After acquiring a solid foundation, in which the joy of learning and concentration are also strengthened, KUMON goes a decisive step further than classical learning support or tutoring: the method enables independent learning beyond the school year level. KUMON thus becomes - as one pupil once aptly put it - a pre-help. Success in school and self-confidence set in; the joy of new challenges accompanies your child for a lifetime.
How to find us:
The Lerncenter is located in the heart of Horn between Lestra and Horner Mühle in Leher Heer-Straße 25. Take bus lines 33 and 34 or tram 4 to the Vorstraße stop. From there it is a three-minute walk to the Dr. Pfannenstiel medical centre, where our learning centre is located on the 2nd floor. If you come by car, there is paid parking directly in front of the centre and free parking in the street Am Brahmkamp, which is adjacent to Leher Heer Str. 25.
There is a place for parents to stay. The Crossini café and the Ruchel bakery are also nearby, where you can get a coffee at a reasonable price. The Sparkasse and Lestra are also within walking distance.
Please note: During opening hours, the learning centre is in full swing. This time should and must belong to your children. I will be happy to talk to you outside the learning centre hours.
Since 2010, I have been running a KUMON Learning Centre for Mathematics in the Horn-Lehe district. I consider my start in the street of probably the most famous German mathematician, Carl-Friedrich Gauss, who said about himself that he learned arithmetic before he learned to speak, to be a good omen.

In addition to my work as an instructor for mathematics, I was a lecturer for business administration, especially for controlling and management, at the University of Applied Sciences Bremen for several years from 2011. In June 2012, the university awarded me the prize for excellent teaching in the category "German-language Bachelor's degree programmes". Since March 2014, I have been teaching mathematics at the Mentor public school in Gröpelingen. At the beginning of the 2016/17 school year, I was appointed head of the mathematics department at secondary level I.

I graduated from Christian Albrecht University in Kiel with a degree in business administration. I studied business administration and economics, German language and literature, journalism and political science in Münster and Kiel (with a semester abroad in Lyon). Before entering the broad field of teaching, I was a credit and equity analyst at the second largest German bank at the time. Even though I found the job interesting and varied, it nevertheless fulfilled me less than teaching students and pupils or awakening the dormant potential in every child as a KUMON instructor.

Since April 2019, I have been enjoying the success of my students in new premises in the heart of Horn. As much fun as it is for me to stand in front of a class and win students over for mathematics and educate them to become self-confident personalities, I also feel limitations that every school business brings with it: within the framework of the class system and strict curricula, it is difficult to always do justice to every student and to support them individually according to their abilities.
With KUMON this is possible: every child is "picked up" and taken along. Through the unique KUMON material, pupils quickly improve their numeracy skills, increase their concentration and acquire a good learning and working attitude. With growing self-confidence, they accept challenges. They learn not to give up when things get difficult. My assistants and I accompany the children on their learning path, which often takes them far beyond the current school material, less by words than by close observation and brief instructions. The successes they achieve at KUMON help them not only in mathematics, but in all subjects.

Most Popular Questions

KUMON offers much more than tutoring 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.
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.
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.
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.
KUMON is a self-learning programme but each student receives 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, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
