“Kumon doesn’t restrict students to their own grade level, which is how both of my sons were able to study years ahead of their peers,” said Ifrah Aydid, owner of Kumon of Lemon Grove. “Each child is supported and encouraged to reach their own potential through fostered independence and individualized instruction, which is what sets Kumon apart from the rest.”
“These results translated into a self-esteem boost that I didn’t anticipate,” Ms. Goldman said.
Teachers are recommending students who can benefit from Kumon’s instruction and, with parent involvement, are making the enrichment center an official partner in the learning process.
“The idea is not for Kumon students to be ‘tutored’ per se but to ‘self-propel’ through the material,” says center director Naomi Sazuki…
Even if your child prefers roving work stations to a dedicated desk, identify appropriate study spots and make sure she has all necessary supplies. “Try to pick the quietest areas in your home that will have as few distractions as possible,” advises Rima Muth from the national math and reading enrichment program Kumon.
