“Research shows that failing to grasp the fundamentals of maths at primary school leaves only a one in ten chance of catching up by the age of 16” (Channel 4 Dispatches, 15 February 2010).
(PRWEB) February 26, 2010
Recent reports in the media paint a gloomy picture. An education system in crisis, with maths teachers in particular struggling to enthuse children and even to work out the answers themselves. Kumon is a leading supplementary education provider which offers maths and English programmes to children of all ages and abilities. In 2009, Kumon Educational bucked all recessionary trends and grew by 14%.
As a result of this growth and an increase in demand for private tuition, Kumon is currently looking for dedicated, passionate people to run maths and English study centres at numerous locations across the country. A Kumon education franchise is a rewarding career option that offers freedom, flexibility and solid financial rewards.
Kumon exists to provide as many children as possible with the opportunity to learn and aims to give them the best chance in life by offering a unique and individualised study programme that is tailored to the needs of each child. Kumon Instructors, running a study centre, help children make the most out of their learning and achieve their potential.
Kumon has more than 58,000 students at over 600 study centres in the UK. Successful candidates are extensively supported throughout their careers by ongoing training as well as substantial marketing support. Al Shaw became a Kumon Instructor just over a year ago. He says:
“Being a Kumon Instructor has all the benefits of working for yourself, plus great support from an established organisation.”
Instructor of thirteen years Rachel Reeve agrees:
“Every day I am impressed by the power and flexibility of the Kumon programme! It is very exciting to be able to help those students who are struggling with their school lessons, as well as challenging those students who are excelling in maths and English. I love the opportunity to be involved with the education of individual students over many years, often seeing them develop their skills from primary school to GCSE level and beyond.”
