About the Instructor


At the Kumon Center of Anaheim Hills - Weir Canyon, your child will Learn How to Learn. Kumon is an academic program like no other. Instead of passively receiving instruction from teachers or tutors, Kumon students actively develop self-learning skills. The role of a Kumon Instructor is to discover each student’s level of academic ability and continually provide students with worksheets that are suitable to their respective ability levels. 

Biography and Background

Lina Kumon

Dear Families, 

Welcome to Mrs. Kumon's Center! As an Instructor, I will serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. At my Kumon Center, I personally create an individualized study plan for each child to ensure their success. 

A little bit about myself. Yes, Mrs. Kumon is my real name! My husband's grandfather, Toru Kumon is the founder of the Kumon method and opened the first Kumon Center in 1956. I am also a former Kumon student myself.  I studied Kumon throughout my childhood which has greatly contributed to my academic success. Now that I have two children of my own, I am a proud Kumon parent as well. I understand and relate to parents who are trying to keep up with the academic pressures that our children face today. Needless to say, I am truly passionate and knowledgeable about the Kumon Method.

I hold my master of arts in teaching from USC and have years of experience working as an elementary teacher in both public and private schools. I sincerely love helping children learn and grow. Nothing is more exciting than unlocking a child's potential. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child as we work together to help them succeed!

Communication is a huge part of your child's success. If you have any questions, concerns, would like to visit our Kumon Center, schedule a conference, or take a placement test, please feel free to contact me.

Mrs. Lina Kumon
