Career Teacher and Kumon Parent to Provide Individualized Study in San Diego Suburb

Kumon of Lemon Grove Aims to Inspire Youth Through Academic Independence

– Ifrah Aydid has always strived to be the best educator she could be – teaching children ranging from pre-school through high school for years. During her time teaching English as a Second Language students, she noticed their struggle to understand the work, which prompted Ifrah’s return to school to receive a master’s in education along with a reading specialist certification. Ifrah acknowledged the fact that the material should be more individualized for those students, but knew it wasn’t possible in that school setting. At the same time, she witnessed her two sons excel in school, years beyond their grade level. They had been enrolled in Kumon since they were three years old, and routinely shocked their own teachers with their advanced knowledge and independent comprehension. When it came time for a career change, Ifrah knew that becoming a Kumon Instructor was the perfect way for her to continue her passion of teaching, while making sure each of her students were at their own appropriate “just-right” level of study. She is now officially the proud owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Lemon Grove.

“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.”

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.
