About theInstructor


Kumon Instructors are trained and certified through a comprehensive system which ensures that they offer the best in Kumon instruction to each student.

Kumon Instructors work very closely with each individual student and his or her family to create the best study plan possible for the student, whether the need is for remedial help or for advanced study.
