Quadratic equations, factorization, and imaginary numbers are all math concepts often learned in high school algebra. Now imagine determined fourth, fifth or sixth graders quietly working through these concepts on their own. This is exactly what you would see if you peeked into many Kumon Centers.
As a learning program based on ability, rather than age or grade, Kumon Instructors across North America are helping children learn without limits by inspiring them to reach heights they never imagined possible. It is common to see children in Kumon Centers studying math and/or reading material two to three years above their school grade level.
“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.
