Welcome to the Beckenham First Class Learning Study Centre. Simone Farnon, Centre Manager, has been running highly successful after-school maths and English classes for over 18 years (8 years at Kumon).
COVID-19 UPDATE:- The centre is now fully open and is following UK government guidelines to create a secure learning environment.
Students of all ages attend our centre for around 45 minutes per subject. In these classes they will hand in their previous week's work and complete that day's worksheets which will be marked, returned and discussed with the tutor. Students are then set a programme of work of around 10-15 minutes per day to do at home, practising what they have learnt in the class to ensure mastery and fluency at each step.
The individualised programme is targeted to fill any existing gaps in their understanding. This therefore helps with their school work, builds confidence and develops independent learning skills, something that is extremely important in today's busy classroom environments.
Our English and maths programmes are flexible and tailored to the learner's individual needs and abilities so students move on only when they are confident with a topic. Regular testing ensures that the best possible progress is made. The 'little and often' approach, with plenty of repetition and practice, really does make a huge difference.
Our First Class Learning Centre Manager will call you to discuss how we can help your child with maths and English. We will then assist your child to complete an assessment to determine which path is most suitable for them. Once we have established your child's needs, an individualised programme is put together that will support and encourage your child's learning, enabling them to gain confidence and fill in gaps that they may have. Your child can then start completing the daily worksheets with ongoing support from Simone whenever it is needed. Our programme is a partnership between First Class Learning, your child and you as parents so communication between all is important.
