– Millions of students across the world have taken part in the Kumon Program since its founding over 60 years ago. This year, 56 accomplished students across North America defied incredible odds and were selected to attend this year’s Kumon Student Conference. The third annual event will take place in Chicago, Illinois on July 10th, and aims to bring together some of the brightest of our next generation of future leaders.
The day-long conference includes a series of unique activities designed to showcase many areas of the students’ intelligence. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from each other through a variety of enjoyable learning activities designed to foster team building, group discussion, critical thinking, and creativity. In this unique learning environment, students will also hear from inspirational former Kumon Students who have completed the Kumon Program, some of whom are now successful professionals.
“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.
