Parent Testimonial

"I love Kumon. I was in Kumon when I was a child, and now my son is in Kumon."

- Parent of 4th grader enrolled 1 year

"Thanks to your Kumon team for helping to strengthen our daughter's math skills. When she started in Kumon a few years ago, she was barely making average grades in math, and since she's worked with your team, she has gradually progressed to a top level performer in math. Thanks for giving her the skills & confidence to excel in this critical subject!"

- Parents of a 6th grader enrolled 4 years

"Our son learned to read through Kumon, and stayed enrolled in the program to continue to strengthen his comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills.  Having finished the whole program before he began high school allowed him to be prepared for his Literature courses, including Shakespeare, with a confident, fundamental understanding provided through his Kumon studies.  Thank you!" 

- Parents of an 8th grader enrolled 8 years

Our Success Story

Each student's progress in Kumon starts as an Instructor-decided lesson plan, but evolves into a student-driven lesson plan. At the Kumon Center of Elgin - West, we seek to not only help a child master the fundamentals of Math and Reading, but also to see our students transform into confident, independent learners studying material based on their ability, not merely based on their grade or age.

Our Kumon Center hosts an annual student award ceremony to recognize every child's progress through the year. We have had numerous prestigious awards given to our students over the years, including over 25 program completion awards and major milestone accomplishments such as our Level G by 5 recipients in both Math and Reading. We also have recognized many students who learned to read or mastered early numeracy and basic addition skills before completing Kindergarten through their studies in the Kumon Program.

Call us today to learn more about the benefits of Kumon and how your child's Math and Reading skills can be truly amazing!
