About theInstructor

Introduction

As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

I graduated from Saint Louis University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Degree with a major in Finance and in 2004 with a Master’s in Business Administration.  I have 12 years of corporate experience with companies such as MCI, Boeing, and most recently, Takeda Pharmaceuticals.  Throughout my career, the fundamental components that helped me succeed the most were a desire for constant learning and the satisfaction that comes from self-motivation and accomplishment.  Ironically, when evaluating supplemental education programs for my daughter, I found that these key principles that I so strongly believe in were some of the important and key philosophies of the Kumon methodology.  I enrolled my daughter in the program, and after only six months, saw such a vast improvement in her confidence and saw her eagerness to learn.  It was at this point, combined with my passion for education that I decided to become a Kumon Instructor.  It is so rewarding for me to be able to share and instill my passion for education with all the children in our community so they too can reach their full potential!

Training and Certification

I am a Certified Kumon Instructor and have fulfilled all of the testing and training requirements to operate a Kumon Center.  This includes studying and being tested on the math and reading curriculum, a classroom training that spanned several months, and on-the-job training at an actual Kumon Center.  Working together to support your child with my knowledge of Kumon and your knowledge of him/her, we can provide your child with a wonderful opportunity to succeed.
