The Kumon curriculum offers a wonderful opportunity to give kids foundational basics, self-confidence, academic and testing-taking success, as well as good study skills.

At Kumon-Briargate, you know your kids will get the best instruction in math, reading, and life! The Center's mission is: To serve the families of our business neighborhood by offering a high-quality Math and Reading Program that teaches more than just academics--we teach life skills.

Biography and Background

Kumon Center Instructor

Joyce started this Kumon Center in 2020. She views this as an opportunity to inspire and empower children to reach their greatest potential. Through an individualized at-home study plan, she emphasizes the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This gives each student a sense of accomplishment while preparing them for taking education tests. The Kumon Method has helped many students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, she has a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed. She taught high school physics, Earth science, and space science in her native Taiwan for over 8 years. Upon meeting her husband at Johnson Space Center in 2012 at a space educator conference, she has since been focused on raising two amazing kids, Jedidiah and Eden. She has become a very good cook, led several Bible studies and enjoys watching her kids grow in their education exponentially through the Kumon Program. She is fluent in Mandarin, Taiwanese and English.
