About this centre

With the KUMON learning method, your child can develop its abilities individually. In the oldest KUMON learning centre in Dortmund (founded in 2000), each child works independently and at their own learning rhythm. We pay particular attention to the assessment of each child's uniqueness and to create their own learning plan.

It is important to us that, in addition to subject progress, personal learning skills are also strengthened, such as independent work, error analysis and the ability to concentrate. We thus go a decisive step further than traditional tutoring: By enabling children to secure the basics and develop joy in learning, children can quench their curiosity and thirst for research, and they courageously begin to tackle tasks that are above their school level.

In this way, we guide children to enjoy learning progress and take pride in their achievements. This applies to children of all ages and school types - even kindergarten children!
If this is also interesting for your child, I would be happy to show you in a personal conversation what can become possible and how exactly the method works. You can reach me via the telephone number or the contact form.

Before I opened the learning centre, I worked in a children's home. In the context of homework support, I could observe how difficult many children found it to follow the material. On the other hand, I was able to talk to many teachers who were far from being able to organise the lessons individually enough to really do justice to each child. Yet it is elementary for the children's further life to develop their own learning abilities, not to mention improving their grades.

I got to know KUMON by chance. It quickly became clear to me that both children with learning difficulties and children with strong learning abilities are given the opportunity to develop independently in mathematics. Especially the systematic structure of the materials makes it easy for the children to engage with the content.

Since then, I have experienced and enjoyed it when children can put what they learn at KUMON to good use in school and in life. When they say, "Hey, I can do that!", I know that I was able to make a small contribution. That fulfils me and I am curious to accompany each child on their learning journey.

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.
