As an Instructor of a maths and English study centre, your role will give you the job satisfaction you’ve been looking for, whilst offering the support and training needed to build a successful career through running your business.

A mum’s view Case study: Mala Patel Kumon Instructor, Coventry East Family: Two boys 11 and 9

1. Why did you decide upon a change of career/job?

Having children it was becoming increasingly difficult to work full time and give them the attention they needed. I decided to look for something which would allow me to be around for them as they grew up. I wouldn’t say I had a love of education however; I have always been interested in education and have always wanted the best for my children.

2. How do you think your Kumon study centre has benefited the kids in your community?

I know the Kumon study centre has benefited the kids in Coventry East as I have great feedback from parents expressing how their children have improved in their maths and English and how their confidence has grown since being on the Kumon programme.

3. What kind of person do you believe makes a quality Kumon Instructor?

A quality Kumon Instructor is one that has a belief in a child’s potential. You must have patience and understanding with children and be able to make them feel good about their study whilst nurturing them in the right direction.

4. What makes Kumon different from other education franchises? 

I’m not very familiar with other education franchises but I do know Kumon believes in helping children right from the start. What we care about most is each individual child and helping them with lifelong learning skills. Kumon is also a long term programme and not a ‘quick fix’ for examinations. The techniques and skills learnt in Kumon will certainly help a child in all areas of their education. Kumon is practice not only for school work but also later life when a child goes to university and then onto the world of work.

5. What is the average timescale in building the business from part-time to full-time? And how smooth is the transition?

Building the business from part-time to full-time is dependant on how you run things. I value my time so train and employ staff for a lot of the admin work meaning I can still be part-time. On average I would say it takes 5 years to build up to full time with the transition being very smooth as the work is the same, just more of it. There is a lot of support from both the Kumon regional and head offices.

6. What advice would you give a parent considering enrolling their child in Kumon?

Look at the ‘bigger’ picture not just the key stage 1s. 2s, etc. Look beyond and see what skills are required for GCSE and A Levels, the confidence to tackle problems by oneself, the daily study habit routine which needs to be put in place from a young age in preparation for these exams. Independent learning skills are vital for exam preparation. Good habits learnt young stay with us for life.

7. What advice would you give to someone considering a Kumon franchise?

My advice to someone considering a Kumon franchise would be that they should be comfortable working with children and parents alike. The rewards are more personal than financial but most of all they must have belief in children reaching their full potential. The instructor should always be thinking ‘What’s best for the child’, the financial rewards come along when you are sincere in what you are doing.
