About the Center


Welcome to the KUMON Math and Reading Center of San Rafael!

We are centrally located in the heart of Marin county and conveniently located on the main street of Downtown San Rafael at 1435 4th Street, near the corner of 4th Street and E Street. Our Center is lucky to offer easy student drop-off in the passenger zone of our courtyard, away from traffic and just steps from our front door.

KUMON of San Rafael was established in 1997! 

We are the largest, brightest, and most established KUMON Center in Marin. Our experienced team has a strong dedication to our students and community and a consistent and proven track record of success. KUMON of San Rafael has helped hundreds of students in Marin surpass their grade level and achieve recognition in KUMON’s International Advanced Student Honor Roll. Many of our students learn anywhere from six months to eight years ahead of their grade level!

Our KUMON Instructor, Biana Shikhman, started her KUMON journey in 2014 as a KUMON parent when she first enrolled her son, a 1st grader at the time, in the KUMON program. She was so impressed by the benefits of both the Math and Reading programs that she later enrolled her daughter before she even turned four! Witnessing the academic success that KUMON fosters, she was inspired to join KUMON of San Rafael in 2019 and has since been honored to help other students achieve the same success that the program offered her children. 

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.

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.
