As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor for 18 years, our instructor, Mr. Nair serves as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, mentoring, support and encouragement. He creates an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and he emphasizes the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of his students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, he has a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed. While Kumon does help students who have fallen a bit behind in school to catch up, and even surpass their peers, the greatest value of our unique approach is the impact it can make on a child’s success over time. Parents who view Kumon as a valuable, ongoing extracurricular activity–like guitar lessons or sports, for example–often watch their child build an academic and confidence edge that helps them achieve more in school, year after year. It’s an advantage that propels many Kumon students into the colleges and careers of their choice in the long run.
Having participated in several case studies including the world renowned "Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study" (TIMSS), and having secured a strong grasp in Math, Computer Science and Engineering from a prestigious institution, Mr. Nair has a unique style of finding the strengths and gaps in students enabling him to develop them to their fullest potential. He has a strong grasp of higher-level Math including single variable and multi-variable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics and Vector Calculus. He is highly sought-after by both high-achieving students needing enrichment as well as those looking for remedial help along with an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). His pedagogical approach relies strongly on the bottom-up Kumon method while incorporating the latest international trends in the development of educational techniques and learning approaches.
Throughout his school and higher education years, Mr. Nair secured several awards and honors including writing awards. He has participated in literature festivals and literary analysis of various texts. He continues to remain a student always eager to learn something new - whether it is researching about gradient descent or reading a rhetorical analysis of a non-fiction or fiction text. His ability to connect with the student at an individual level allows him to approach and guide an early learner learning to read using phonics with the same eagerness, passion and curiosity as while working with a middle school student who is discovering the art of critiquing a character in a literary text.
