About this centre

Our extracurricular educational facility is located in the centre of Castrop-Rauxel.

What we aim for at the learning centre is for the children to acquire subject-specific skills in mathematics and English in order to improve their school performance. In addition, we motivate them to progress beyond their school year level.

We support both strong and weak learners individually and accompany them from pre-school age to high school graduation.

The KUMON method gives all children the opportunity to learn individually. Through a placement test, we identify the child's existing knowledge and learning level. In this way we can realise an optimal support.
The aim of KUMON is to recognise the children's potential and to support them according to their abilities and skills in order to open up the way to a successful future for them.

While the children are busy with their tasks in the learning centre, the parents can use the waiting time for example with shopping in the Widumer Platz shopping centre, which you can reach on foot in a few minutes.

Our learning centre remains open for you during the holidays!
I am 37 years old and a mother of two. I completed the distance learning programme to become a state-certified business economist and am currently studying educational science at the Technical University of Dortmund.

KUMON inspired me in 2011! At that time, my son started with KUMON and made great progress. In the course of time, I have noticed that the KUMON method offers further advantages in addition to the professional support:

With the help of KUMON, the children learn how to manage time and are prepared to complete tasks in school on time. They expand their learning speed and work in a targeted manner. In addition, individual support plays an important role. Care is taken to ensure that the children are supported according to their performance, but not over- or underchallenged.

The earlier measures are taken, the better! KUMON gives opportunities to build skills and abilities already at pre-school age in order to achieve success in school life.

I am very happy to have got to know KUMON and look forward to sharing my insights about it with your children.

I have been successfully running the KUMON Learning Centre Essen-Rüttenscheid since April 2014. With my many years of experience, I would also like to offer your children the opportunity to share my insights into the KUMON learning method and thus improve their school performance.

I have qualified staff who accompany your children in their learning process. We are sure that KUMON is a good learning method worldwide and we would like to offer all children the chance to learn about the KUMON method.

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.
