About the Instructor


Educator for Life

As a Kumon Instructor, I have been trained and certified through a comprehensive system which ensures that I offer the best in Kumon instruction to each student. I graduated from Guilford College with a double major in Education and Psychology. Upon graduation, I achieved North Carolina certification status and taught for eight years in the public school system. During my tenure as a teacher, I spent my summers working with The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards as an Assessment and Development Trainer.

Biography and Background

Meet Ms. Toiya
Toiya Hancock Headshot

As an educator and as a parent, I believe in the power of education. Over a decade ago, I merged my passion for learning and instructing with an entrepreneurial mindset and opened my doors on July 28, 2008. In my 12 years of experience, through my instruction, a dedicated staff and the partnerships I’ve formed with families, over half of my students are 1-3 years ahead of grade level with the other half improving daily in their mental calculation skills, reading comprehension, correct ability and study habits. I am confident that the Kumon Method can foster in any student, a positive attitude towards learning and the development of skills that will allow them to be a better learner for life.
