Isabella, 8: Instructor Susan Lake
“My teacher told us about all the people in Haiti and how they lost everything,” said Isabella. “Helping them made me feel good because I was making a difference.” Isabella even offered her favorite books to the people who donated money.
When Isabella isn’t helping the less fortunate, studying reading level E1 and math level F at Kumon, she can be found playing with her friends, reading and practicing piano. Isabella also enjoys horseback riding and taking care of her four dogs and hamster. She hopes to become a veterinarian one day and believes that Kumon will help her achieve that goal by building her math skills.
“Kumon has helped me learn things on my own before I learn them in school so I can speed through math class,” said Isabella. “When I finish, my teacher will let me play on the computer or help the other students.”
Isabella is fluent in Spanish and is currently combining her math and language skills to tutor a new student from Chile.
