About theInstructor


My name is Surekha Jain. I have been a Kumon Instructor for over 12 years. As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

I am a dedicated Kumon Instructor in the Manhattan Beach Community for over 12 years. Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, I was a successful Nutritionist but decided to pursue my true passion of working with children and helping them succeed academically.

I experienced the success of the Kumon Method not only through the countless students I have come across in 12 years but also through my own daughters who have completed both math and reading programs. Before becoming a Kumon Instructor, I was a Kumon parent for five years, therefore, I understand the challenges that students and parents encounter with Kumon's long term commitment. At the same, I also understand the value of study skills, perseverance and the discipline that Kumon Method brings in a student's life.

I cannot emphasis enough the importance of studying through the Kumon philosophy of learning.
