Meet Elina, a Dual Program Completer Who Has Developed Independence in Kumon
Elina is an accomplished student who studied advanced algebra at her town’s high school as a middle school student. The dancer and black belt in Taekwondo is very independent for her age, but that wasn’t always the case. She learned to step out of her comfort zone and speak up for herself as a student at Kumon, where she completed both the Math and Reading Programs before entering high school. It was due to the self-confidence she developed in the program that Elina was able to convince her local newspaper to create a “Poetry Corner” feature, where she and her fellow students could share their poems. Her independence and determination also helped her win a national architecture competition, which resulted in an invitation to speak at the organization’s yearly conference.
