As a second-generation Kumon franchise owner, Jennifer Ju, Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Edison – North, is carrying on the success of her mother, Helen Kim. “I knew immediately that Jennifer was going to make a great Instructor, and that she was going to bring a new energy to the Kumon Center” said Helen.

Jennifer isn’t just a second-generation Kumon Instructor, she brings another unique perspective to her center—former Kumon Student. She enrolled in Kumon at four years old, and successfully completed the both the math and reading programs by the time she was 15. The love that she developed for math and the sense of confidence that the Kumon Method instilled, inspired her to become an engineer. She was a valuable member of the civil engineering firm responsible

for developing E-ZPass, the electronic toll collection system used in most northeastern states.

Even though she spent most of her youth in her mom’s Kumon Center, first as a student and then as an assistant, she never saw herself becoming the owner and instructor of her own center. She was on the path of becoming a professional engineer, when life opened a new door. She had the opportunity to takeover one of her mom’s Kumon Centers and become her own boss.

Jennifer will continue to live out her mother’s legacy through her instruction and innovation. She was raised as a Kumon child and is now a successful Kumon Instructor with a lot of spunk and personality to share with her students!
