Testimonial

Josie’s Story


Josie is 10-years-old, studying three years above her grade level in the Kumon Program. In fact, she’s studying the same math material that her mom, who is an eighth grade teacher, teaches her students. Imagine that, a 10-year-old transforming equations, working with linear functions and simplifying monomials and polynomials. She’s well on her way to advanced algebraic expressions and she isn’t even in middle school yet.


One of the things that Josie likes most about Kumon is the fact that she’s studying above her grade level.


“Kumon gives me confidence because I know how strong of a student it has made me,” says Josie. “I know that I can do and learn anything if I do the work and practice daily. Kumon has taught me about the importance of focusing and to not be afraid of challenges, but to enjoy them and work through them because I know I can overcome anything.”


Josie embodies everything that Toru Kumon had in mind when he founded the Kumon Method. He felt that students would experience the true benefits of the Kumon Method if they acquired the study habits necessary for self-learning and advanced study.

Meet Pranav - Spelling Bee Champ

I'd like you to meet Pranav. Pranav started at our Kumon Center of Algonquin - West in 2012 as a preschooler, doing both math and reading. He is now a 5th grader studying about 3 years ahead of grade level for math.  

Pranav recently won the Kane County Regional Spelling Bee! Because of this, he has qualified for the National Spelling Bee in May of 2018. Pranav told me that his Kumon work really helped him with the spelling bee.

We wish Pranav nothing but success in the spelling bee! Congratulations!!! 


Everyday Success


It's important to celebrate all kinds of success we see at our Kumon Center. I was recently told by a parent about how proud their child was because she had gotten 100% on her last 2 math tests. Her confidence has soared since joining Kumon - and that has helped her grades in math just as much as the work has. 


Meet Arman - Program Completer


This is Arman.  Arman started Kumon 6 years ago as a Kindergartner. He first started just with math and then added reading about a year later. He is now 12 years old and as of January 2016, he can count himself among the small percentage of students who have completed the Reading Program at Kumon.

Arman tells me that since he's started with Kumon he understands his school work better and enjoys reading more.  His advice to other students is that Kumon really helps!
