About the Center


Welcome to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Elgin - West! We are glad you stopped to visit our website.

At Kumon, we believe that each child has a unique ability for learning. It is our aim at the Kumon Center of Elgin - West to foster a student's independent desire to learn through setting individualized goals, attaining those goals through daily Math or Reading study and unleashing a student's true potential over time.

New families enrolling in our Center first attend our Parent Orientation, then schedule a no-cost Assessment Appointment for each child. All appointments are scheduled on an individual basis at a time most convenient for you.

Kumon students attend the Center twice per week, selecting from Mondays and Thursdays between 3:30 and 6:30 or Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00. Students enrolled in either Math or Reading spend approximately 30 minutes at the Kumon Center, and 10-20 minutes per day at home.  Both Math and Reading can be studied in tandem -- the time commitment for dual-subject study is 20-40 minutes of study per day at home and 45-60 minutes at the Center.  After a new student's first month of enrollment, parents have the option, at their discretion, to add the other subject of study.
