From the Corporate World to Small Business Owner: Local Entrepreneur is Inspired to Open Kumon Math and Reading Center after His Own Niece Experiences Success in the Program

Kumon Math and Reading Center of Greenlawn Now Taking Enrollments

– For much of his career, Kawai Chan worked in the Information Technology (IT) industry, but after a shift at the company, he knew he wanted to make a change professionally and become a small business owner. Chan was reminded of the success his own niece experienced in the Kumon Program and was inspired to look into the franchise. With a mission to make the same impact on other young minds, Chan is now the proud owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Greenlawn.

“I distinctly remember watching my niece go through the Kumon Math and Reading Program, and seeing that it not only made an improvement on her academics, but also instilled a sense of routine, allowing her to become a self-starter with her work,” said Chan, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Greenlawn. “She was able to grasp concepts independently and knew what she needed to do to succeed. I look forward to making that same impact on children in my local community.”

The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum.

“While working in IT, I gained experience in creating training materials, as well as onboarding new employees,” said Chan. “I’ve always had a passion for instruction and helping others. My main hope for students at my center is for them to experience the joy of learning through my instruction.”

Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life. Learn more about the Kumon Method today.
