About the Instructor


My name is Hema Popat, and I am the proud Kumon parent of two boys who have now moved onto college and the workforce. I have witnessed their growth through the program firsthand. I started my Kumon journey in 2012, when I transitioned from a very chaotic full time role in the financial industry to start my own venture with Kumon within my local community. My goal is simple; to provide a quality education to other children just as I have done for my own two boys.

Kumon is an extremely rewarding experience! I have seen students succeed not only academically, but also develop their study skills such as independence, focus, self-motivation, self-confidence, and become well-rounded capable learners. It is so rewarding to see a student transform along this journey and strike the confidence levels to believe that the sky is their limit!

Biography and Background


I am a business professional and a Certified Management Accountant. Furthermore, I have extensive experience in all aspects of Business Management in the financial industry and I am also Six Sigma Green Belt certified. Amongst the many skills I acquired whilst working in the financial industry, the main skill I continue to practice is customer service! I will listen to your concerns and touch base frequently to guide you and your student throughout the program. Parent conferences are available all year round, and I make myself accessible to all parents outside of class hours.
