Victoria West, Instructor at the Kumon Portishead Study Centre at Lawes House on Bristol Road, has recently achieved Kumon Elite Instructor status and joins a group of brilliant Instructors across Kumon Europe and Africa.

This special honour recognises her dedication to her students and the work she puts in to nurturing each one of them towards reaching their true potential. Victoria has been running the Portishead study centre for over 12 years and is currently supporting over 190 students within the local area.

Victoria said: “Being a Kumon Instructor is a demanding but hugely satisfying role. I love being involved in the process of educating individual students who go on to surpass not only their own, but others’ expectations and start to achieve what they once thought was the impossible.

“Developing confidence and an enjoyment in learning in my students is my passion. With many years of experience of working with children and of the Kumon programmes themselves, I can offer a high level of expertise in developing ability and potential in each child.”

Students at the Portishead study centre have gone on to achieve top results in both their Year 6 SATs and GCSEs with the help of the Kumon Maths and English Programmes, and their Instructor, Victoria. The study programmes develop not only subject knowledge but also confidence, independence and self-learning; skills required for a successful future.

The centre is ranked second out of 650 study centres in the UK and 11th out of 1,236 study centres in Europe and Africa for its outstanding delivery of the Kumon Maths Programme.
