– Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading program, is unlocking the potential of children across North America by helping to build a strong foundation in math and reading. The Kumon program aims to guide children to a point where they not only reach their grade level, but surpass it. In fact, many Kumon students study material one to three years above their grade level in math and reading.
“Kumon’s individualized approach is not only popular, but very successful,” said Dominique Ciccarelli, Ed. M., education spokesperson for Kumon North America. “Kumon strives to cultivate confident and independent students who become life-long learners both in and out of the classroom. The success of the program is evident in the accomplishments of thousands of students across the country.”
Kumon recently released student success stories showcasing the impact that Kumon leaves on children across North America.
Research shows the many benefits of studying above grade level. Students reading above grade level in the 3rd grade are more likely to graduate from high school at higher rates and students who take advanced math courses are more likely to attend and graduate from college.
The objective of Kumon is to instill in students the skills and mindset for self-learning. Through continuous Kumon study, students become self-motived, independent problem solvers. Daily Kumon study helps boost confidence and improve study habits, providing benefits that last a lifetime.
A solid foundation in math and reading can truly make a difference in a child’s learning experience. Visit www.kumon.com to find a Kumon Center in your community.
