Journey through education

If knowledge is power, then self-learning is the ultimate superpower

UNIVERSITIES and businesses are placing increasing emphasis on graduates with a wide range of skills. With technology readily available to all, in today’s business world it is often not enough to have studied a subject at school or university.

Instead, competing students are expected to be able to interpret and continually develop a breadth of knowledge themselves.

Self-learning is an important skill for children as they journey through education and beyond to adulthood, building independence and the ability to progress without reliance on a teacher.

Traditional, instructional learning has a place in school, however working out an answer or solving a problem by yourself is not only more rewarding, but it also helps to solidify the learning process – in essence, it becomes your superpower.

Encouraging children to assess their own work will enable them to gain a better understanding of what they are best at, and what they need to work harder on.

If children practise editing and reviewing their work on a regular basis, they will soon become familiar with the process of self-assessment.

As children start to take ownership of their learning and experience success, they also develop invaluable confidence and self-motivation. This can increase their enjoyment across a wide range of subjects at school whilst also preparing them for personal and professional success later in life.

The Kumon Maths and English programmes provide an economical way to equip your child with the skills that they need to build a bright future, allowing them to fill in any missing gaps in their study foundations, as well as the opportunity to work ahead of their school grade level.

The self-learning method offers so much more than traditional tuition: it nurtures your child’s independence, developing superpower self-learning skills to give them the tools to excel.

Kumon can help your child become a superpower, and become a confident and independent learner, and embark on this superpowered self-learning journey. Free trial classes are also available under certain terms and conditions.

To participate, register your children in either the Kumon Mathematics or English Programme before March 16.
