About the Center

Introduction

Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center of Roswell - North. We are located in the Sweet Apple Village plaza, across from Sweet Apple Elementary. For more than 60 years, Kumon’s after-school academic enrichment program has helped children achieve success worldwide. We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve and the motivation to learn on their own. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Students advance through the program at their own pace. Our emphasis on individualized learning helps your child become focused, motivated and self-reliant. We monitor each child’s progress to ensure comprehension before moving on to a new concept. With a strong academic foundation, critical thinking and problem solving abilities, your child has the potential to achieve whatever he or she desires.

The Kumon Math Program is a comprehensive curriculum that develops the necessary skills to help children progress from counting through calculus. For more information about the Kumon Math Program, click here.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. For more information about the Kumon Reading Program, click here.

POLICIES

Absence Policy

Class Absence: If a student is going to be absent on a scheduled class day, please contact the center 24 hours in advance. The student’s work will be placed outside of the front entrance in a container for your convenience.

Extended Absence: Corporate policy states that students may only be absent from Kumon study for one (1) month without re-registering. If students are absent for more than one (1) month, an additional registration fee will be charged, and a placement test will be re-administered to your child. Please let us know a week in advance if your child will be absent for an extended length of time so that we can discuss the options available. Kumon materials are available for students who are absent or on vacation. Any student, for whatever reason, who does not take any Kumon materials for one (1) month, even if they plan to resume Kumon study later, will be considered “discontinued”.


Kumon Study at Home

When students do their Kumon homework, it is strongly recommended that you:

1.  Build a routine at home. Schedule a specific time every day and a separate work area away from distractions. You may want to provide a digital clock.

2.  Complete only the worksheets assigned for that day. Students should not do more than the assigned homework per night as this can lead to poor performance, frustration, and a lack of motivation.

3.  Do not make any lesson plan changes. Each worksheet is assigned with a purpose in mind, so please do not modify the order of the assignments or how many pages are assigned each day.

4.  Be a cheerleader at home! Always encourage your child to do his or her best.

5.  Do not assist your child with the worksheets. Here at Kumon, we are building self- learning. We need you to support this at home as well. Encourage your child(ren) to use the skills practiced at the center.

Job Opportunities

Classwork/Homework Grader

  • Posted: Friday, September 07, 2018
  • Goals
    Helps manage students' classwork and homework by prioritizing, then grading work that has been turned in. Accurate and quick grading will help the instructor and other assistants to understand the students' center performance, which will lead to better instruction. It will also demonstrate to the student that we recognize their hard work and respect their time. Neatness, quickness and accuracy in grading, along with a smile and occasional positive feedback, can help students to achieve their full potential through the Kumon Method.

    Regular Tasks and Expectations 
    1. Prioritize what should be graded first—consider how long students have been waiting, whether they are doing one subject or two and whether or not corrections, depending on the number to be graded, should take priority over class work.

    2. Grade student work with care, according to the solution manual and with respect to the students’ valuable time.
    3. Praise students' hard work, look up often to smile, and discreetly notify the Instructor of classwork (or Achievement Test) scores/times that are out of the ordinary. 

    4. Timely grading of students' classwork and homework will help the center flow efficiently, assist the instructor in understanding student performance, lead to just right planning, and the type of Kumon experience that the student will want to repeat.
