– After working as both a nurse and in customer service, Jenny Li could be considered an expert in working with others. The only piece that she felt was missing from her career was owning her own business.
During this time, Li’s daughter was enrolled in the Kumon Math and Reading Program. The academic growth and confidence that she witnessed develop had her wondering how she could spread that love for learning to more area students.
Today, Jenny Li has officially taken her next step as an entrepreneur with the opening of Kumon of Minnetonka – Ridgedale. She’s excited to build on her customer service experience to create a reliable space for supplemental learning.
“I was so unbelievably impressed with the Kumon Method’s amazing impact on my daughter,” said Jenny Li, owner and Instructor of Kumon of Minnetonka - Ridgedale. “From the meticulously designed worksheets, to the strategic development of math and reading skills – I knew then that I wanted this program to reach as far into my community as possible.”
Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs looking for the perfect time to start their own business. Up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available to further assist new Instructors, along with an extensive network of support.
