Dear Kumon Parents,
Hello! I took over the Tempe-Lakes Kumon Center, as the Instructor and Center Director in November 2017. Since 2015, I had been volunteering at the Center. During this period, I've assisted the students with preparing worksheets, grading classwork and homework, and offering guidance as needed - all things that my wonderful assistants and family help me with, now.
In my role as the Instructor, I
consider the best way for each student to learn and advance academically.
create a plan and set long term goals for each child, at the enrollment, based on their placement assessment and their respective abilities.
provide students with individualized lesson plans, adjusting and optimizing the study plan periodically, to make it more suitable for each student.
monitor the teaching assistants recommendation for each child after every class.
create small goals to ensure that students always experience a sense of accomplishment, increase self-confidence, and become more self-reliant.
develop their ability to work independently.
help them develop speed, accuracy and effective study habits.
communicate with parents about the students learning successes, things to pay attention to and show them how essential this is, in order to successfully maximize student ability.
coordinate with the Regional Field Consultant, Branch Manager and other Kumon Instructors to bring best practices to the Center.
I have the benefit of extensive Kumon training, workshops, internship, visits to other centers and guidance from my former center Instructor.
Living and studying in two different countries and several states in the USA has given me an in-depth appreciation of the diverse cultures and backgrounds our children come from. I have always believed in motivating kids to be self-learners and giving them the tools during those precious early years. I am aware of research that indicates the tremendous benefits and confidence that early literacy gives the child in the future, a belief that is now strengthened by all the training I have had in the Kumon methodology and philosophy.
Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children maximize ther potential. My dedication to education and devotion to working with our precious children and with you, dear parents, will ensure that, together, we achieve their individual goals while nurturing the spark that makes them life-long learners.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions and as always, we are happy to discuss them with you.
