Josie’s Story


Josie is 10-years-old, studying three years above her grade level in the Kumon Program. In fact, she’s studying the same math material that her mom, who is an eighth grade teacher, teaches her students. Imagine that, a 10-year-old transforming equations, working with linear functions and simplifying monomials and polynomials. She’s well on her way to advanced algebraic expressions and she isn’t even in middle school yet.

One of the things that Josie likes most about Kumon is the fact that she’s studying above her grade level.

“Kumon gives me confidence because I know how strong of a student it has made me,” says Josie. “I know that I can do and learn anything if I do the work and practice daily. Kumon has taught me about the importance of focusing and to not be afraid of challenges, but to enjoy them and work through them because I know I can overcome anything.”

Josie embodies everything that Toru Kumon had in mind when he founded the Kumon Method. He felt that students would experience the true benefits of the Kumon Method if they acquired the study habits necessary for self-learning and advanced study.

Zi's Kumon Success Story

Kumon has had the biggest impact on my daughter's life, thus far. She recently turned four years old and she is already adding. She began her journey at Kumon earlier this year in February when she started with Math. In May, she began reading and she is already able to spell and read some words.

I am so impressed with how quickly she has been able to learn through Kumon's curriculum. Zi was once behind in her Pre-K class, and now she is far ahead of her peers. The improvement we have seen has helped her confidence to SKYROCKET!

We cannot wait to see how she continues to flourish academically as she continues the program at Kumon. It has been such a blessing having Ms. Ana Olaya as her Instructor. She is so patient and kind, she truly motivates my daughter to continue to excel.
