About the Instructor


Hello and welcome to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Amarillo - Southwest! My name is Vibha Patel and I am the Center Instructor and owner. I was born and raised in Houston, TX and went to college at the University of Texas at Dallas.

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. By observing classroom assignments and interacting with your child at my center, I create an at-home study plan that allows them to move at a pace through the material that motivates them to achieve greater goals and emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. The Kumon Method 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 and my goal as an instructor is to help your child unlock their unlimited potential and succeed not only in school but in life!

Biography and Background

Ms. Vibha began her Kumon journey as a student of the Kumon Method in both math and reading subjects where she completed both curriculums. She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Neuroscience and Business Administration. During college, Ms. Vibha worked as an assistant at two centers in the DFW-Metroplex area. Ms. Vibha recently worked at a non-profit that provided resources to the local type 1 diabetes community but is now dedicating her time and energy to impact the lives of children in Amarillo.

When Ms. Vibha worked as an assistant at the Kumon Centers, she noticed many students struggle in math because they lack the foundation of the basic concepts. As a Kumon Instructor, Ms. Vibha can now provide individualized lesson plans to all her students. Her goal is to help children become independent learners, build confidence, and develop a positive attitude towards learning so each student becomes successful in their academic career and future endeavors.

Ms. Vibha is a proud Kumon Student and Instructor. She has seen first-hand how the Kumon Method has empowered her to be an independent and confident learner and given her the skills to conquer anything life has to offer. She was enrolled in the Kumon Program when she was 10 and successfully completed the program by the time she was 16. To see how Kumon has integrated into her life is the biggest testament to the Kumon Method.
