About the Instructor


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 have been a certified Kumon Instructor since 2005. Prior to opening my Kumon Center, I received a master's degree in Engineering Management from Santa Clara University.  I worked as a product developer and engineering manager at IBM for over 25 years.  Both my father and sister were Kumon Instructors.

As a strong advocate for education, my goal is not only to help my students excel academically, but also to instill a love of learning and increase their confidence in becoming a successful self-learner. Seeing each student's growth and accomplishment has been one of my greatest joys.  It has been rewarding to watch students build their academic skills and their confidence. I look forward to helping students gain a solid foundation that will allow them to pursue any path in their future life.
