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.

Congratulations Jonathan D.!
We have a Kumon Reading Program Graduate in our Center! Jonathan's diligent hard work has borne fruit, and have become the shining example for our center. Quoting his words: "Kumon has greatly helped me to tackle school work with great confidence. The things that I am learning at school have been already tackled in my reading worksheets. Not to mention the joy of solving math problems with ease, as I had already solved them in my math worksheets. There were days when I felt the work was hard, but I did not want to give up. I am happy to be continuing the math program and determined to complete it soon."
