About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Suzi Gruber
Suzi Gruber Bio Pic

I began my Kumon journey as a sixth grader in the Kumon Math Program in Ohio.  When our family moved to Ada two years later, my mother opened the Kumon Math & Reading Center of Cascade and I became the first student to enroll. After graduating from Forest Hills Central High School, I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Loyola University Chicago.

After college, what began as a part-time job helping at my mother's Center, quickly developed into a passion for working with kids. Witnessing the way the Kumon Method develops students' love for learning ultimately motivated me to become a certified Kumon Instructor.

Training and Certification

In 2020, I became a trained and certified franchisee of Kumon North America.
