About the Instructor


A Mentor and Coach at heart

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

After being in Corporate America for over 20 years, he finds educating and mentoring kids the most fulfilling. He believes communication between himself and you, the parents, are vital to the success of the students. Leo encourages you to contact him via email or phone to discuss how both can continually guide your child(ren) to success.
