About the Instructor


My name is Carrie and I am the head instructor at Kumon Coquitlam Westwood. I began my Kumon journey first as a Kumon student and continued that journey later on in life as a Kumon parent. Seeing the huge impact Kumon has on my son's reading skills and his work ethic prompted me to explore Kumon as a lifelong career. My son went from a struggling reader who had problems completing his classwork, to an advanced reader who is able to complete his work in a timely manner. The self-confidence this foundational skill has brought him is the most wonderful gift I can ever give him. 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. My vision is to help every child who attends my centre realize their maximum potential and become confident, independent learners.
