About the Instructor


Trained and certified by Kumon University, as a 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 technique will give my students increased 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. I look forward to the Ah-ha moments that give learning a new concept lasting meaning.
