About the Instructor


Mrs. Stuti Desai

The goal of the Kumon Instructor is to provide the student with the "just-right" level of study in the Kumon Program. A placement test is administered to understand their current abilities, what they know, where the gaps exist, how they do things and how they react to different materials. Based on the time, score and observations, the instructor will provide the student with the most appropriate starting point in the Kumon Program.

The Kumon Program is designed to help students become self-learners. The goal is achieved by starting at a comfortable level to develop self-confidence, individualized work-skills, proper study approach and keep a healthy learning attitude. Students reach a new milestone each year that they are enrolled in the program and eventually study material above grade level. The program emphasizes the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. By doing so, the students increase stamina and speed, thus becoming more self-reliant.

The Kumon Program is a home-based education system which requires the parents, students and the instructor to work together and enhance learning. It is truly a privilege to be in the Kumon Program and to be a Kumon Student!
