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.

Layla's experience


My daughter has been in Kumon since the age of 4. She transferred to the Kumon Apollo Beach center a year ago. The staff and instructor are very nice and support the weak areas my daughter struggled with. They provide incentives and challenge my daughter with goals. I recommend this center. 

Student Spotlight: Mariah

My daughter has been going to this center for the past six months. Mrs. Robinson and her staff have helped my daughter improve in reading. She feels more confident in reading and now enjoys reading chapter books. I would highly recommend Kumon especially this location, to any family that is looking for additional support in reading. I can’t thank Mrs. Robinson and her staff enough for all their help!!!

5 Stars from S. and J. Peters

Ms. Chavonne has been amazing! We've seen great growth through her patience and the program. Our latest FAST result had a 66% improvement, which wouldn't have happened without signing up for Kumon.
