About the Instructor


About Me

Hello, I am Mrs. Sharon Tung. I have been part of the Kumon family since 1989. I am honored to have opened the first Kumon Center in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I was born and raised in Taiwan and moved to the states with my husband. I wanted to be a Kumon Instructor because the Kumon philosophy aligned with my own. With those beliefs going hand in hand, I started the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Plano – Carpenter Park with my two sons as my first students. Now my sons have grown, completed the program, graduated college, and have successful careers in their respective fields. I continue my mission to help students develop into successful individuals. My goal as a Kumon Instructor is to maximize every student’s potential and give them the confidence to shine. I want them to achieve their goals and to ultimately have a brighter future. My career has allowed me to be well-versed in student education and development, thus drives my passion to enrich every student's life with achievements and accomplishments of their goals. With my many years of experience with students and parents alike, I believe that with a little bit of work and dedication - every student has the means to be successful! I look forward to working with your child and family to help them unlock their potential.
