Josie’s Story


Josie is 10-years-old, studying three years above her grade level in the Kumon Program. In fact, she’s studying the same math material that her mom, who is an eighth grade teacher, teaches her students. Imagine that, a 10-year-old transforming equations, working with linear functions and simplifying monomials and polynomials. She’s well on her way to advanced algebraic expressions and she isn’t even in middle school yet.

One of the things that Josie likes most about Kumon is the fact that she’s studying above her grade level.

“Kumon gives me confidence because I know how strong of a student it has made me,” says Josie. “I know that I can do and learn anything if I do the work and practice daily. Kumon has taught me about the importance of focusing and to not be afraid of challenges, but to enjoy them and work through them because I know I can overcome anything.”

Josie embodies everything that Toru Kumon had in mind when he founded the Kumon Method. He felt that students would experience the true benefits of the Kumon Method if they acquired the study habits necessary for self-learning and advanced study.

"When I was first introduced to Kumon 6 years ago, I did not like it. It was just extra work for me. As I went on, I have learned many useful concepts making me a straight A student. This past February, I completed the Kumon Reading Program. I am closing in on completing the math program as well. Not only has the program helped me with my grades, it helped me get accepted into the MSE program. The program is very selective with 1 in 4 making it. Kumon was the reason I did. Looking back, Kumon made me even smarter than I was. I would like to thank my Instructor Mrs. Geeta for a great working environment and teaching me concepts and self learning. I look forward to what is ahead!"
