“Kumon accomplishes much more than developing a child’s learning ability - it builds their personal skills and instills discipline, independence, and responsibility,” said Sola Arowolo, Instructor of Kumon of Indianapolis – North Keystone. “My son’s transformation was not just about what he could read, but rather the fact that he applied his knowledge to explain himself, take ownership of his work, and stay accountable.”
“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.
