- Algebra has often been referred to as the "gateway" course with research showing a positive correlation between the early mastering of algebra and college graduation and employment income.
Kumon, the world's largest after-school math and reading program, understands the importance of advanced study and discovering the true potential of children. As a learning program based on ability rather than age or grade, it is common to see children in Kumon Centres studying math and/or reading material two to three years above their school grade-level.
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.
