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


My name is Pinal Patel and I am the instructor at the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Tampa-Carrollwood. I received a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science and have worked as lab technician and also in healthcare for several years, but I have always had a passion for education and developing children. I was amazed watching my son develop during his experience at Kumon and it inspired me to open my own center so that I could spread the success he felt with my community. Having the opportunity to be a part of a child's life during their character-building years is one that I value greatly. My center goal is helping to create independent self-learners who are the future of our community and society. I look forward to helping you exceed all of your educational goals!
