– For the 20th time, Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized the Kumon Franchise as a “Best of the Best.” The world’s largest after-school math and reading franchise has been ranked at the top of its industry category in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 Issue for 17 consecutive years.
The Kumon Method was born 60 years ago when Toru Kumon, a high school math teacher in Japan, created learning materials for his son. Today, Kumon has a massive global footprint with more than four million students studying at nearly 25,000 learning centers in 50 countries and regions. Outside of Japan, Kumon North America has the second largest enrollments.
“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.
