Success  Stories


Our students, ranging from preschool through 12th grade, develop the skills that help them build upon each concept they learn. With individualized learning plans, motivation and practice, our center prepares students to become avid learners, encouraging success throughout their entire academic experience and beyond.


Ryan H. from our Darien Center

Ryan H.: "Kumon has helped me because I used to have trouble with everything involving math and I disliked it.  I started Kumon in Kindergarten and ever since then I've been the smartest kid in my grade.  Now I finished third grade and am solving problems two grades ahead in my math class.  I love the fact that it is a nice safe place to learn and someone is always there to help if you need it and it has programs in Reading and Math."

From Ryan's Mom:  "Kumon has provided Ryan with the tools and techniques to solve math problems well above his grade level.  This gives him the confidence in school and has generated a lot of respect from teachers and students.  Thank you!"

Annie G. from our Darien Center

From Annie G.:  "Kumon has helped me become a better student because in the beginning of the school year I couldn't even finish an addition mad minute in a minute and when I started Kumon I was the first person to do the division mad minute in my class because Kumon helped me get ahead.  Also Kumon helps me get ahead of my grade level."

From Annie's Mom:  "Kumon has helped my child focus, perform and feel proud of herself as a student."

Anna H. from our Darien Center

From Anna H.:  "I began Kumon in 2nd grade when I was struggling to understand basic things.  When I started I thought is was too easy and I was too good for it but then I kept moving forward and they got harder.  Even starting in 3rd grade, I was not struggling anymore!  I could understand.  I just kept moving forward to where I am today.  I am starting 7th grade and I can do 9th grade math."

Anna's Mom:  "We started Kumon when my daughter quit piano lessons.  My husband and I felt that a daily commitment to something is essential for teaching discipline, so we chose Kumon.  Not only has Kumon instilled lessons of autonomy and self discipline, the long-term commitment has taught her to stay with something even when it feels impossible.  Hard work pays off.  As parents, we can't buy confidence, but you can pay for Kumon.  The results are invaluable."

Ryan G. from our Darien Center

From Ryan G.:  "Kumon has made me a better student in many ways.  It has made me much faster in what I have already done in school and it has even taught me things that we have not even learned yet in school.  Kumon is the best.  I love that Kumon teaches you in a fun way.  Everytime you go to the Darien Center, you get one Kumon dollar.  When you get enough you can get something from the prize box."

Ryan G's Mom:  "Kumon has helped my children return to do more math in their heads.  They're used to writing out every step in school but Kumon has shown them that they don't need to do problems this way."
