What About Kumon
Kumon of Myers Park
En Espanol: www.kumon.com/us-es
We’re often asked about what makes Kumon different than tutoring. Or for that matter, what makes Kumon of Myers Park such a unique space for students and families. How much time do you have? We know families appreciate our convenient location, friendly and committed staff, but that’s just part of the story. Honestly, we feel it’s not one thing but many that make Kumon of Myers Park part of so many success stories.
Kumon is about the basics
Learning confidence, stamina, and good study skills don’t happen overnight. They’re cultivated over time by learning foundations in reading and math that consistently build on one another. What’s that look like? Read what we’ve learned about why better readers make the best math students!
Kumon is about good habits
Posture, penmanship, neatness, accountability; simply put, these are life skills. Kumon is about helping develop the personal discipline it takes to make them second nature. Mastering them— along with consistent home grading and corrections — are integral to success in Kumon.
Kumon is about success over the long term
It’s much bigger than getting the answers right on today’s homework — although that’s a great short term goal! Kumon is about learning why mistakes were made, learning from them, and avoiding them in the future. It’s about building that confidence that comes from independent learning.
Kumon is about commitment — and convenience
We get it. The older and more involved the student, the more difficult it may seem to fit Kumon into the schedule. That’s the beauty of the daily work, and our three day after school schedule that’s not “one size fits all.” If you’re willing to commit to the process, we’re willing to get creative and convenient to make Kumon work for you.
It’s about accessibility
For our part, we’re committed to being readily available to you and your student. The center is open three afternoons per week, and staff or I am always reachable by phone or email to answer questions, offer direction, or encouragement.
As always, Kumon is about developing life-long learners who can problem solve beyond the classroom. We invite you and your student to write your own success story, too. Please visit us on a class day to see what our Center is all about!
