About the Instructor

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

How long have you been an Instructor?

Since 2003, almost 18 years
 
What did you do before Kumon?
I was a fashion merchandiser and product manager in the garment business before I decided to stay home with my two girls; although, this “break” didn’t last very long.  Once we enrolled my daughter, in Kumon, I realized I too wanted to be a Kumon Instructor.  

What made you become a Kumon Instructor?
I’ve always had a strong belief that children can develop to their full potential if you let them.  I’ve witnessed this firsthand with my own two daughters.  When I enrolled my first daughter in Kumon, at a very young age, I saw the great impact and benefit this program had on her development. Seeing my own children grow not only in learning, but with confidence as well made me further believe in Kumon’s philosophy of Independent Learning. 
 
What is your favorite thing about being a Kumon Instructor?
I always love working with children, but their energy is my favorite. Helping them to discover and achieve their goals makes me happy!

Do you have any hobbies?
I am a big foodie and enjoy cooking. I also consider myself creative and like to design jewelry using beads and metalwork.  Lastly, I’m also a Master Gardener.

What it is an interesting fact about you that not everybody knows?
My family is a TRUE Kumon family.  Both of my daughters are program completers and my husband is also a Kumon Instructor as well.
