–The United States Census Bureau surveys indicate that Seattle has one of the highest rates of college graduates among major U.S. cities. Recognizing the value placed on education throughout the region, Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading program, established its Northwest presence in Seattle back in 1991.
Today, the Seattle branch of Kumon North America celebrates its 25th year of bringing academic enrichment to thousands of children across four states in the Northwest region.
“These results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didn’t anticipate,” Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumon’s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
“The idea is not for Kumon students to be ‘tutored’ per se but to ‘self-propel’ through the material,” says center director Naomi Sazuki…
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. “Try to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,” advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
