NEW YORK RANGERS AND KUMON NORTH AMERICA ANNOUNCE NEW MARKETING PARTNERSHIP
Kumon Named the First-Ever “Official Learning Center” of the Rangers
New York, NY, January 22, 2014 – The New York Rangers and Kumon North America today announced a new, multi-year marketing partnership, naming the world’s largest after-school learning program the first-ever Official Learning Center of the Rangers. The agreement provides Kumon with premier brand integration at Madison Square Garden during Rangers games and designates Kumon as a partner of the Rangers youth hockey camps, which is part of the organization’s “Go Skate!” platform, focusing on improving the youth hockey experience in the tri-state area by increasing opportunities and accessibility to the sport through hockey camps, clinics and free skating events.
Kumon is an after-school math and reading enrichment program that unlocks the potential of children so they can achieve more on their own. The learning method uses an individualized approach that helps children develop a solid command of math and reading skills.

“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.
