Former Assistant Principal and Kumon Parent Pledges to Make Learning Meaningful

Kumon of Tomball – South to Help Local Youth Reach Full Potential

– Ayisha Warfa has been a life-long educator. As a former teacher and assistant principal, making learning meaningful and fun for young minds has always been a passion. When she witnessed her two daughters excelling academically through the Kumon Math and Reading Program, it sparked an idea to give back to the youth within her community in a new way. Ayisha noticed a significant increase in confidence in both of her children – especially in one of her daughters, who had never enjoyed math previously. Over ten years later, her older daughter has graduated high school with a full scholarship to college in the fall, with her younger daughter expected to do the same next year. The enthusiasm for self-learning she saw in her daughters was something Ayisha felt the need to spread. She is now successfully doing so as the proud owner and Instructor of Kumon of Tomball – South.

“Having the foundation of Kumon was undoubtedly a factor in both of my daughters placing at the top of their class, year after year,” said Ayisha Warfa, owner of Kumon of Tomball - South. “I want the same success for my students – and with Kumon’s individualized program, each child’s ‘just-right’ learning level will be reached in a way to make that possible.”
