â€“ Kumon, the worldâ€™s largest after-school math and reading program, is unlocking the potential of children across North America by helping to build a strong foundation in math and reading. The Kumon program aims to guide children to a point where they not only reach their grade level, but surpass it. In fact, many Kumon students study material one to three years above their grade level in math and reading.
â€œKumonâ€™s individualized approach is not only popular, but very successful,â€ said Dominique Ciccarelli, Ed. M., education spokesperson for Kumon North America. â€œKumon strives to cultivate confident and independent students who become life-long learners both in and out of the classroom. The success of the program is evident in the accomplishments of thousands of students across the country.â€
â€œThese results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didnâ€™t anticipate,â€ Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumonâ€™s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
â€œThe idea is not for Kumon students to be â€˜tutoredâ€™ per se but to â€˜self-propelâ€™ through the material,â€ says center director Naomi Sazukiâ€¦
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. â€œTry to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,â€ advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
