About theInstructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Therese Linehan, Instructor and Center Director

I first learned about Kumon while living in Japan, where I studied the Japanese language through the Kumon Program. I was thrilled with my progress which I attributed to the daily study routine. I have been a certified Instructor since 1993. I ran a Kumon Center in Seattle with over 100 students for about 8 years before moving back to the Upper Valley in 2000. My own children studied Kumon throughout their childhoods and have clearly experienced greater success in school as a result.
