About the Instructor


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

Miss Julie

My name is Julie Blankenburg and I am the Instructor at Kumon Math and Reading Center of New Lenox - East. My passion for becoming a Kumon Instructor stems from my experience as a parent looking to supplement my own children's education. I find it very rewarding being a Kumon Instructor and being able to help students and families in the community reach their academic potential and achieve their goals.
