Zubin and Kabir Love Kumon Connect!

Zubin and Kabir

Both my boys have been with the Kumon Center in East Hanover for over 3 months now, and their experiences with Kumon Connect have been wonderful. They started with Kumon Connect, and we’ve seen significant progress in the last few months with their work. The fact that they can see their corrections the same day or the next day is a great advantage. They’re not waiting to be evaluated for a week, and it's very helpful for their own morale. Kumon Connect also helps them finish stuff quickly. They understand the app very easily, and it's a very easy app to use. The boys are really enjoying it!

Janvi: A Valedictorian's Success Story

Hi, my name is Janvi P. and I’m currently the valedictorian of my high school. I’d like to talk about how Kumon has helped me achieve many of my academic goals. Kumon helped me prepare for the SAT and AP classes because a lot of the math packets helped me develop my basic mathematical skills, and the English packets helped me with my grammar. Overall, the timing of my packets helped me learn to manage my time and not procrastinate, as well as learn from mistakes.
Kumon, especially the East Hanover center, has such an amazing staff. I’ve always felt so supported, and I knew that I could go to them for anything that I needed or if I had any questions. I would recommend Kumon to a lot of people and a lot of students because it's a great way to interact with some great staff and build your education and academic profile.  

Shyam: Our Center's First Student!


Kumon has been such a foundational part of my education since I was young. I just graduated from Boston College with a dual degree in mathematics and economics, and I can attribute my love for math to the Kumon program and the great instruction at the East Hanover Center. I was also able to cultivate a love for learning that carried through my higher education and led me to pursue math as a major today!

Lopez Family: Why They Chose us

Our daughters (ages 8 and 5) are part of the Kumon of East Hanover. We decided to put them in Kumon because we learned the program is designed to build on core skills aimed at enhancing their reading and math competence. We chose the East Hanover center because of the strong reviews compared to other centers in the area.
Our eldest has been part of this center for more than 3 years, and we have seen material improvement in her reading, writing, and math. Our younger daughter has also benefited from this program and is now able to do addition and read. Both girls really enjoy going to this center and working with Mrs. Hema and all of her staff. The environment is positive and welcoming.
We are really happy with the progress both girls have made in this enrichment program and
would strongly recommend Kumon of East Hanover. Mrs. Hema is the one in charge, and she and her staff do a wonderful job of establishing a positive learning environment for the children.

Zekri Family

Our daughter is in the first grade, and we noticed that she is not a good reader compared to some of her classmates. Someone advised us to enroll her in the Kumon program, specifically the one at East Hanover. We took the advice, and in one month, we noticed the improvement. After 3 months, she passed 3 levels of reading. Even her school teacher stated that our daughter is a great reader. I would like to thank Hema and her team for their great work.

Husseini Family

I first brought my daughter to Kumon East Hanover in 2015 when she was in 7th grade. At that time, she had been struggling with reading comprehension and showed weaknesses in grammar, vocabulary usage, and essay writing. Within a year of being enrolled in Kumon’s reading program, I saw tremendous improvement in my daughter’s test scores in both her Language Arts and Reading classes. She became a faster reader, improved on retaining information from reading passages, advanced her vocabulary, and elevated her writing skills by including more complex sentences and proper grammar usage. Seeing the tremendous improvement my daughter made in such little time, I decided to enroll my son much earlier in Kumon for both reading and math. As he enters high school and begins to take more advanced math courses including Geometry and Precalculus, I can confidently say he has a strong foundation in Pre-Algebra and Algebra that he can build off of and use to succeed in high school math courses as well as standardized testing. Kumon emphasizes independent thinking and the use of repetition to ensure that new skills are ingrained in children’s brains.

I would highly recommend Kumon to all parents, but especially parents of young children who are just beginning their academic journey. I recommended to my sister to enroll her two young daughters (ages 5 and 9) in Kumon to get ahead of their school’s curriculum and to strengthen any early weaknesses both may demonstrate in either reading or math. 

The director of this Kumon center, Ms. Hema is an outstanding Instructor. She is committed to each one of her students and their personal growth at Kumon and she keeps an open communication channel with the parents/guardians of her students. Ms. Hema maintains an organized learning environment and places special emphasis on routine, reinforcement of skills, time management, and organization. Ms. Hema is truly an accessible mentor, and I attribute my children’s successes through Kumon to her and her efforts.
