– When Meghana Patel came to the United States over a decade ago, she was excited to start a new chapter with her husband and two children. After ten years working as a system support analyst at South Georgia Medical Center, she was ready for a career change, but didn’t know where to start. During this time, Meghana learned that her nephew was excelling after enrolling in the Kumon Math and Reading Program. The increased academic ability and confidence she witnessed convinced her to enroll her own children, and it wasn’t long before she saw those same positive changes in them.
Meghana has always had the desired to work with children in some way, as well as to be her own boss. Shortly after enrolling her children in Kumon, something clicked. Today, as the new Instructor and owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Valdosta, Meghana is excited to create a love for learning in her beloved community of over ten years.
“Kumon caters personally to each individual child regardless of ability, age, race, culture, or economic backgrounds,” said Patel. “It’s a proven system that I have seen work firsthand in my own children, and is invaluable for self-learning, encouragement, motivation, and beyond when it comes to academics.”
When Patel decided on Kumon as a next step in her career, she reached out for more information on becoming a Kumon Franchisee and was met with an extensive network of support. Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs, as up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available to further assist new Instructors.
