About this centre

The Learning Centre Dortmund-Wellinghofen started in November 2010 in the rooms of our district library. Due to growing demand, we moved to our own premises at Silberhecke just one year later. Since then, we have been offering English as a subject in addition to mathematics. The learning centre in the Dortmund district of Wellinghofen is easily accessible by public transport, and parking is available nearby.

Our team now consists of four staff members who look after over 70 students. Not only the technical content, but also the development of independence in thinking and acting is a focus of our work. The close cooperation between parents, child and learning centre director is indispensable for the children's good development. Under these conditions, the children quickly develop motivation and confidence in their own abilities.

Advantages at a glance:
  • Development of concentration and perseverance
  • Your child learns independently and without stress beyond the current school material The basics are strengthened so that your child can subsequently explore new subject areas.
  • KUMON makes your child self-confident and independent
  • KUMON helps your child to achieve sustainable learning success Qualified, motivated and committed KUMON instructors accompany your child

After I completed the teaching profession for secondary school I and II with the subjects mathematics and geography with first and second state exams, I had my three children. During this time I worked at different schools. I became more and more aware that individual learning on the one hand, but also necessary practice on the other hand, often comes up short at school. G8 has made this situation even worse. For a long time I had been thinking about designing exercises for mathematics that would explain but also motivate. By chance, I came across KUMON and found the aspects that are so important to me well realised in this method. I completed the training and opened my own learning centre in November 2010. Since then, it has been a great pleasure for me to work with the children.

As an instructor, I particularly value the fact that the children have an individual starting point (independent of the school subject matter) and they thus build up foundations that enable them to then also work above school year level and independently recognise connections. These are skills that the child can use in all situations in life.

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.
