Kumon differs from tutoring in several key ways. If you’re looking for afterschool tutoring, you may find that Kumon fits your needs better.
Kumon Students don’t just learn math or reading. They learn how to learn. Students begin at a comfortable starting point for a reason. In early levels, they build focus and speed, as they work to complete worksheets quickly and without stopping. They develop confidence, as they see that they can achieve 100% in a subject that may have always been difficult for them. And they learn the importance of consistency, as they experience small improvements from doing just a little bit of work every day.
As kids progress in the program, they encounter more challenging material. They might get stuck on a particularly tough long division or fraction problem. While their Instructor will help guide them, the child will ultimately figure it out on their own. The feeling of success that comes with solving a hard problem by yourself is incredible. Eventually, your child will start to become more confident as they realize they can overcome any challenge with enough effort.
When parents look for a tutoring solution, they typically are hoping for quick results. But what happens after your sessions run out or after your child takes their test? They may have learned how to add fractions, but when they struggle with a new concept, they may need to find another tutor.
In Kumon, the goal is for students to study above grade level once they have filled the gaps in their learning. When students go beyond grade level in Kumon, they learn how to use clues to figure out a solution. Studying worksheet examples or breaking down how they solved previous problems may be just what they needed. They truly learn how to overcome challenges and develop determination.
Because Kumon Students move at their own pace, they can advance as quickly or slowly through the program as they need. Advanced students often find that school becomes easy, allowing them to complete homework in less time. This frees up their time to pursue extracurricular activities like music and sports. They also begin to excel in their other classes, as they have more time to dedicate to them, and can tackle challenging problems with ease. The potential of a Kumon Student is unlimited!
