Kumon Math Level K

I like Kumon because it helps me excel in and out of the classroom. For example, it has helped me academically because I am way ahead in my math knowledge and skill. When I have an upcoming test, I barely study for it. In addition, I love learning new mathematics concepts. Currently, I am learning “Maxima and Minima of Quadratic Functions”. When I first came across this concept, I was intimidated. However, Kumon elaborately explained the steps; I became less frightened. Kumon also taught me how to manage my time properly so I can play sports and take part in school events. As mentioned before, Kumon helped me in school. Because of my advanced knowledge in math, I became the key member of the Academic Decathlon. We were placed 3rd in a tournament. Lastly, Kumon put me in a higher advantage point in life. Someday, I want to become a doctor or computer engineer, and Kumon will be an influential part towards my future!

I like that Kumon helps me get smarter. Kumon helps me manage my time along with my sports. They make me face harder challenges, and I am able to be ahead of my class. I excel in school because of Kumon, which also allows me to spend more time on my favorite sport, basketball. Thanks to Kumon, I do not have to worry about math so I am able to focus on other subjects. Kumon gives me the opportunity and skills to excel. I learn and gain from it which is why I love Kumon!

Kumon Math Level G, Reading Level FII

I like the Kumon of Burbank - South and how the Instructor and assistants are kind. They help me with problems which I am unable to solve. They also explain the methods of how to solve it. Kumon has made my reading and math skills stronger. Now, I am able to understand problems easily. Before, I would always ask for help. Because of Kumon, I am able to do better in school. That affects me and I am able to be in the Math Club and start competing with other students like me. Thank you for helping me with my reading and math!

Kumon has changed my life by making me advance into 6th grade math while I am currently in 3rd grade. I recommend coming here!!!

Kumon Math Program Completer

I’ve been in Kumon since I was six years old, and since then I’ve always been successful in Math at school. Kumon trained my mind to do and solve problems mentally and efficiently, while truly understanding the lesson and concept. It changed my life dramatically in several ways. It taught me about commitment and responsibility, something we use in our daily lives. Kumon has become a major part of my life and I am so grateful for this wonderful opportunity my parents gave me. I am also very grateful to my instructor, Julius and his assistants, for always guiding and encouraging me to do my best. Every lesson, worksheets, test and visit to Kumon will remain as a good influential memory to me for the rest of my life.

Kumon Math Level I

Kumon of Burbank - South is a well-organized place and is well-formatted. Kumon has a waiting room in the entrance where parents can sit and wait for their child and students can wait for their parents. Kumon changed my life because when I was in 3rd grade, I was out sick and missed school. I had no idea what was happening during those missed days, but with the help of Kumon, I was able to get back on track and move further ahead than my classmates.

Kumon Math Level J

Kumon taught me many things in reading and math. I learned a lot of vocabulary words and how to do addition and subtraction using mental calculation in my beginning Kumon experience. In my opinion, Kumon is a great learning center for acceleration in math and reading. Because of Kumon, I do very well at school. It really helped me with many problems, especially in reading and math. The best thing in Kumon is how the instructor and assistants show me the techniques on how to solve the problems.
